Whitney Young defeated Fremd 53-47 in their semifinal behind 17 points and 8 rebounds from Lucas Williamson.

Simeon defeated Bolingbrook 60-50 in their semifinal with Talen Horton-Tucker scoring 24 points and dishing out 6 assists.

Simeon owns a pair of wins over Young this season.

The game is set for a 7:15 p.m. tip-off. Simeon’s firepower is well-documented with Evan Gilyard (UTEP), Kezo Brown and Horton-Tucker leading a team that also features Messiah Jones inside and Kejuan Clements providing backcourt depth.

Whitney Young can be equally potent with Lucas Williamson, Javon Freeman and Xavier Castaneda headlining with Justin Boyd, Miles Baker and Craig Beaudion also adding production.

Simeon head coach Robert Smith has six state titles under his belt. Whitney Young head coach Tyrone Slaughter has captured two state titles.

The game is set to tip-off at 7:15 p.m. CST.
