Illinois Preps Insider’s girls basketball top-20: Week 8


We’ve been waiting for Bolingbrook to have a week like this all season long.

The Raiders had two massive wins this week against Lincoln-Way East and Simeon, as they really solidified their place in the top 10.

Montini on the other hand struggled this week. It all started with a near disastrous finish against Naperville North, but good teams find ways to win games and the Broncos still finished the week 3-0.

Don’t know what to make of Loyola or Benet. Those two teams are so up and down, they’re really hard to peg.

Oh, and did anyone really expect for Geneva to be down for long? Yea, neither did we. Here’s the rankings.

1. Montini (24-2) 1

Good teams find ways to win games

2. Maine West (21-1) 2
