YOUTH MOVEMENT NOW MATURING


When DePaul College Prep head basketball coach Tom Kleinschmidt accepted an invitation to play at the inaugural Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic two years ago, he knew that he had some young players that were destined for stardom.  That maturation process has continued to evolve as those young Rams have acquired valuable varsity game experience and have had their share of winning.  In the past three seasons, DePaul College Prep has won three IHSA Regional championships and last year advanced to sectional final, losing to the eventual state champ.  The cornerstones to the team remain in a pair of juniors in 6-4 wing Perry Cowan and 6-6 forward Pavle Pantovic.  Cowan, who was chosen to the Chicago Sun-Times All-City Team last year as a sophomore, was named to the HC Squared All-Tournament Team last December.  Cowan averaged nearly 12 points per game and shot 53% from the floor while helping guide the Rams to the Final Four at HCHC.  Sophomore 6-2 guard Lance Moseley also returns with varsity experience from his freshman season. The Rams have won their opening round game two years in a row at the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic and look to take that next step in their advancement as one of Chicago's top teams.
