Our first broadcast is a battle of East vs. West with Joliet West, currently ranked 8 in Week 1 of Michael O’Brien’s Chicago Sun-Times Super 25 Basketball Rankings List, taking on Oswego East, currently on the list ranked 22. 

Both teams have had a strong start to the season so far with Joliet West 5-0 in Conference games and 13-4 overall, and Oswego East reflecting similar numbers with 6-0 in Conference games and 14-3 overall.
