OSWEGO EAST, WILLOWBROOK JOIN 2018 HCHC FIELD

Two teams that won a collective 46 games last year will join the 2018 edition of the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic this December.  Oswego East was the Southwest Prairie runner-up last year and lost only twice between the second week of December and the first week of March on its way to a twenty-win season.  The Wolves are anchored by Kendall County News Player of the Year Ray J Dennis, who averaged 17.2 points per game last season and is considered one of the biggest breakout players in the Class of 2019.  Advancing as far as any team in their school history last season, the Warriors of Willowbrook were sectional finalists and won 26 games.  Guard Matas Masys connected on 67 three-point baskets last season and leads a talented group which recorded 50 victories over the past two seasons.  The two new additions represent teams from conferences which were not included in previous Hinsdale Central Holiday Classics, as the current 16-team field now boasts entries from 15 different conferences.  Click here to read the entire New Team Release
