Illinois Preps Insider’s girls basketball rankings: Week 4


Benet is pretty darn good.

The Redwings beat a very good Bolingbrook team without their starting point guard Tsimba Malonga in pretty convincing fashion to take the Benet/Naperville North tournament title.

Not a whole lot of changes this week, but I expect that to change drastically after the holiday tournament. Have you seen the field at Montini? The four quarterfinal games could easily be a championship game at any other tournament. It’s going to be brutal.

Mother McAuley is a little bit of an enigma. They had a great win against Wheaton North, but they drop out this week after their loss to Montini. The Mighty Macs are a very good team, but they’re not quite the same with Vanessa Gavin out with injury.

Let’s get on with the rankings.

Heavy favorite at Dundee-Crown.
