Posted On: 11/6/17 3:00 PM

The high school season is almost here in the state of Illinois!  With that we look at some of the top conferences throughout the state and some of the prospects in those conferences!  Today it is the Big Twelve!


Pre-Season Player of Year

SG Tim Finke (Champaign Central – 2018)

This is one of the toughest player of the year races in the state with four prospects ranked in the top 10 of their respective classes.  Our pick for Big Twelve preseason Player of the Year is Champaign Central 2018 shooting guard Tim Finke.  The senior guard is poised to post huge scoring numbers throughout the year.  He is a plus shooter and a playmaking passer with the ball in his hands.  Expect for this Champaign Central star to put up lots of 30+ point games.
