Whitney Young, Simeon Battle Tonight

Whitney Young and Simeon are set to square off tonight in the semifinals of the Class 4A Chicago Marist Sectional in a battle of Illinois basketball titans.

Simeon held off Stagg to win the Shepard regional last week as they continue their quest to win a fifth consecutive 4A title.

Whitney Young defeated De La Salle to win the Whitney Young regional and was the last school to win a 4A title ahead of Simeon winning the last 4.

This is the first meeting of the year between the two teams.

Simeon has been led by junior post Ed Morrow throughout the season and they will need another strong effort to counter Whitney Young's Jahlil Okafor (Duke) inside.

Simeon's D.J. Williams (Illinois) and Whitney Young's Paul White (Georgetown) also figure to factor heavily for their respective teams in a game that could feature a slow pace.

The game is set for a 7:00 p.m. tip-off.  The winner will face Victor Law (Northwestern), Charles Matthews (Kentucky) and St. Rita for the Marist Sectional title on Friday night.
