Chicago Hoops
July 17, 2003

The Illinois Wolves 16-U squad won the 16-U division at the Hoosier Shootout. The Wolves defeated the Smyrna Stars 77-60 for the championship. The Wolves were again led by their guard duo of Bobby Frasor (Chicago Brother Rice) and Bryan Mullins (Downers Grove South). The Wolves won despite not having shooting guard Sead Odzic, who was playing in the Morris Shootout with his Niles West high school team.

The Rising Stars finished 2nd at last weekend’s Kentucky Hoopfest. Jason Richards (Barrington), Brad Kaslow (Huntley) and Todd Babbington (Prairie Ridge) were among their standout performers.

Hoffman Estates has made a very, very positive statement to the rest of the state this summer. They have won both the Crystal Lake Shootout and the Peoria Richwoods Shootout. They defeated defending state champion Peoria Central in both events to claim their titles. The Hoffman Estates backcourt duo of Johnny Reibel and Bryan Mead is now firmly established as one of the best in the state. Mead went off for 32 points in the championship game at Crystal Lake.

6-6 Class of 2005 power forward Otis Hudson played in both the Crystal Lake Shootout and the Heartland Shootout with Barrington. Hudson, who played his freshman and sophomore seasons with Chicago Marshall is a true enforcer inside. If Hudson does in fact complete a transfer to Barrington, he would bolster a team that returns four starters from a year ago, including high scoring point guard Jason Richards. Hudson is also a standout football player.

Homewood-Flossmor won the Minuteman Classic playing without star forwards Cyrus Tate and Julian Wright. Point guard Excell Hardy picked up the slack as H-F sent a message as to just how strong their team might be this year.
