Illinois Preps Insider’s girls basketball top-20: 2019-20 week 12

That was one of the craziest days of basketball I think I’ve ever seen.

Five total overtimes in the ETown shootout is pretty incredible at the high school level with no shot clocks. Don’t think that will be replicated very soon.

I do want to take this time to remind everyone that rankings are a cumulative thing. Yes, I know Evanston lost three of their last four, but cmon now. They aren’t dropping out of the top-10.

With that being said, it’s time to recognize Fenwick for their win and reward them with a place back in the rankings.

Everything else mostly stayed stagnant. Enjoy.
