Illinois Preps Insider’s girls basketball top-20: 2019-20 sectional rankings

Well, what do we do with Benet?

Their excellent regular season cannot be ignored, but they just got beat by a really good Bolingbrook team. Not even on a last second shot, they just got beat.

This is why I like the end of the regular season rankings a bit more. They’re a little more consistent and we aren’t dropping or promoting teams so extravagantly.

Lake Park comes back after winning a sectional. They began the year in the top-20 and will likely end the year in the top-20 as well.

Simeon jumps Montini. Their sectional win was a little more impressive and they have been unreal this entire season. First time since we started doing ranking a Public League team is number one in the area.

3A is going to be an absolute blast.

1. Simeon (31-2) 3

Rolling along

2. Montini (30-4) 2

Closer to Super-Sectional assignment than regional assignment

3. Maine West (30-3) 4

Seems to have Evanston’s number

4. Lincoln-Way West (30-3) 5

Long travel days had zero impact

5. Homewood-Flossmoor (26-4) 7

No Grace Hall, no worries

6. Benet (29-3) 1

Season comes to a close earlier than expected

7. Bolingbrook (24-7) 10

Biggest win of the playoffs thus far

8. Fremd (27-7) 12

Right where we expected them in the beginning of the year

9. Kenwood (27-7) 8

Just couldn’t beat Simeon

10. Evanston (24-7) 9

Solid season, couldn’t quite take down Maine West

11. Libertyville (25-5) 6

Win streak is over

12. Whitney Young (25-7) 14

One of the best backcourts in the state

13. Marist (30-5) 11

OT losses never easy

14. Grayslake Central (30-3) 16

Another fun 3A contender

15. Lake Forest (26-9) 20

Closed strong, didn’t quite have enough for Fremd

16. Hersey (26-8) 13

Will most certainly be a factor next season

17. Fenwick (27-8) 17

First tough opponent in the playoffs in Simeon

18. Lake Park (25-8) NR

Rogers leads team to first sectional title

19. Maine South (26-7) 15

Third loss to Evanston

20. Naperville North (25-6) 19

Will always be a factor with Kampschroeder
