Conference Preview: Southern IL River to River


Posted On: 11/18/17 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 Southern Illinois River to River!


Pre-Season Player of Year

SG Isaiah Saulsberry (Harrisburg – 2018)

Saulsberry is one of the premier scorers in southern Illinois.  He is a smooth two guard that has a lights out perimeter shot and the athleticism to win off the bounce.  The senior is coming off an impressive summer with the Illinois Bears on the circuit and is primed to have a dominant senior season for Harrisburg.


Players to Watch

SG Justin Johnson (Carterville – 2018)
SF Lamontay Daughtery (DuQuoin – 2020)
PG Bryce Bultman (Nashville – 2019)
PF Tanner Bergman (Nashville – 2019)
