If you put together all-star teams from Northern, Central, and Southern Illinois who would win if they played each other?  Not who has the best prospects, but if you have these teams play against each other and everyone was healthy today who would win?  Vote below on who would win the title.

 

 

Northern Illinois

Starters

PG – Ayo Dosunmu (Morgan Park)
SG – Elijah Joiner (Curie)
SF – Justin Smith (Stevenson)
PF – Christian Negron (Larkin)
C – Cameron Krutwig (Jacobs)

 

Bench

PG – Nojel Eastern (Evanston)
PG – Alonzo Verge (Thronton)
PG – Markese Jacobs (Uplift)
SG – Perry Cowan (DePaul Prep)
Wing – Talen Horton-Tucker (Simeon)
Wing – Drew Peterson (Libertyville)
SF – Nana Akenten (Bolingbrook)
PF – Jameel Alausa (Chicago U-High)

 

Strength of Team:

This team will have tons of ball handlers and scorers in the back court.  Would excel in an up and down game.

 

Weakness of Team: 

With this group I would say the weakness is front court depth.  With only three big men it would be critical for them not to get in foul trouble.

 


Central Illinois

Starters

PG – Keondre Schumacher (Normal U-High)
SG – Da’Monte Williams (Peoria Manual)
SF – Charles Payton (Olympia)
PF – Collin Stallworth (Rochester)
C – Francis Okoro (Normal West)

 

Bench

PG – Adam Miller (Peoria Manual)
G – Cardell McGee (Springfield Lanphier)
SG – Tim Finke (Champaign Central)
SG – Lacey Watson (Rock Island)
Wing – AJ Youngman (Peoria Manual)
SF – Romon Douglas-Watkins (Peoria Manual)
F – Doug Wallen (Champaign Central)
PF – Taylor Bruninga (Illini Bluffs)
Post – Brandon McCombs (Jacksonville)

 

Strength of Team:

The central Illinois team has tons of wings that bring different assets to the table with slashers, shooters, and defenders up and down the roster.

 

Weakness of Team:

Not a lot of height on the front line and lack of pure pass first point guards.

 

 

 

Southern Illinois

Starters

PG – Mark Smith (Edwardsville)
SG – Jordan Goodwin (Belleville Althoff)
SF – Javon Pickett (Belleville East)
PF – EJ Liddell (Belleville West)
C – Jeremiah Tilmon (East St. Louis)

 

Bench

PG – CJ Coldon (Belleville Althoff)
G – Grant Wolfe (Effingham)
SG – Noah Frederking (Okawville)
Wing – Oliver Stephen (Edwardsville)
SF – Marvin Bateman (Belleville Althoff)
F – Caleb Strohmeier (Edwardsville)
PF – AJ Epenesa (Edwardsville)
Post – Justin Carpenter (Mt. Carmel)

 

Strength of Team:

Of all the teams this roster might have the best position diversity in the starting lineup along with four prospects that are ranked in the top five of their class.

 

Weakness of Team:

Will this team’s bench be able to hang with the firepower from Northern and Central Illinois?
