Conference Preview: South Seven

High School

Posted On: 11/4/17 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 South Seven!


Pre-Season Player of Year

Darius Beane (Carbondale – 2018)

Our pick for South Seven Player of the Year is Carbondale senior guard Darius Beane.  The Southern Illinois commit is a smooth guard that can play both backcourt positions for the Terriers.  He can score at all three levels and is also an excellent passer.  Defensively he has a chance to be the best perimeter defender in the conference as well.
