It was a triple header of action for PHI on Saturday taking in teams from across the state.  We saw Simeon vs Bogan, Belleville West vs Belleville East, and Whitney Young vs St. Ignatius.  We break it all down in Scouting the State: Saturday Statements!


Simeon Survives in OT

Anytime Bogan and Simeon meet you know it is going to be a great game.  Bogan has gotten off to a slow start this year coming in at 1-3, but wow did they give Simeon everything they could handle.  The top ranked team in the state won in OT by a final of 57-51.  For Simeon they were without Bynum once again so they had to continue to rely on their depth.  Down the stretch though it was top 10 junior Jaylen Drane Jaylen Drane 6'2" | PG Simeon | 2022 State #112 Nation IL who went to work scoring six straight in OT giving his team some room to breathe in overtime.  The athletic combo guard scored eight of his 14 points in the extra session including four free throws, a floater, and an acrobatic take to the rim.  Michigan signee Isaiah Barnes Isaiah Barnes 6'5" | SG Simeon | 2021 State #139 Nation IL flashed throughout the game as well including having a stretch with a monster dunk
