In about 10 minutes Jahlil Okafor and Whitney Young will take on Cliff Alexander and Curie High School in Chicago's Class 4A Argo Sectional. The winner will face Jabari Parker and Simeon in the finals.
In my opinion, this might be the greatest battle between Chicago big men ever. There's a quick synopsis of the history of Chicago big's, followed by the live video of Jahlil vs. Cliff.
If you read this post late, and want to watch the whole game, it can be replayed once the match is finished. Hopefully the game lives up to the hype, but even if it doesn't, it's safe to say both Okafor & Alexander are league bound.
* Might be an hour from now actually, depending on the time zone. Sorry
it says event kicks off in 17 hours for me ;~;
I'm not sure why it says 17 hours, are you in the U.S.?
I didn't take into consideration Chicago is on Central time. The game should start at 6:30...7:30...or 8:30 p.m. Just check back every hour I guess...my bad ):
Thanks for link I caught the game as it went to OT. Where is this game being played?
Neither having spectacular games. Okafor's been in foul trouble. Alexander's limited offensively but he's got a monster wingspan and rebounds really well. Okafor looks a good 2 inches taller than Cliff.
LJ Peak's been the most impressive in this game. Whichever school gets him will be getting a dynamite slasher.
FYI, the website highschoolcube.com plays all Chicago land area H.S. sports, and has shown tons of the state tourney games. At this point, they are basically showing all the games in the High School playoffs, with the exception of the two downstate sectionals. If you want to watch Simeon vs Whitney Young (Parker vs. Okafor) tomorrow night, it'll be on this site for sure.
