February’s arrival means much to the successful teams. Unfortunately, many teams are nearly or completely eliminated. Both circumstances require high character and high skill to dominate.

Peruse the players who exerted their strength during the first February weekend.

Isaiah Johnson, with a Chicago State coach in attendance, scored 27 points with six rebounds, six assists, and six steals. Cleveland High benefited from this three quarter explosion and did not need Johnson on the hardwood for the fourth.
