Top-ranked Simeon made it to Friday’s Public League boys’ basketball title game, but it might regret previously scheduling a spot in Saturday’s City/Suburban Showdown, at Proviso West.
Simeon, behind top junior prospect Jabari Parker and senior leader Steve Taylor, beat Curie 53-49 for the city title Friday at Chicago State. Yet the 25-1 Wolverines are slated to turn it right around to play 14-5 De La Salle in the marquee matchup of the City/Suburban Showdown at 8:30 PM Saturday.
