Simeon, Proviso East remain in FAB 50

By Scott Powers

Simeon and Proviso East continued to represent Illinois in ESPNHS’s POWERADE FAB 50 boys basketball rankings on Tuesday.

Simeon remained at No. 9 for the second consecutive week after slipping from the No. 1 spot following its loss to Findlay Prep. The Wolverines (18-1) face Bogan (19-1) in a key Red-South game on Wednesday.

Proviso East (16-0) jumped two spots to No. 28 in the rankings after handling Downers Grove South last week. The Pirates’ schedule eases up until they face Downers Grove South and Warren on consecutive days in mid-February.

Oak Hill Academy (Va.), Findlay Prep (Nev.), Grace Preparatory Academy (Tex.), St. Anthony (N.J.) and Gonzaga College (Washington D.C.) comprised the FAB 50’s top 5.
