MAKE ROOM FOR MORE CHAMPIONSHIP HARDWARE

Marian Catholic made history last year.  The Spartans won 26 games and came home with the third place trophy at last year's IHSA State Finals.  Three of the top players from that team are back this year.  6-2 junior guard Ahron Ulis, averaged 13.1 points and 4.0 assists last and was selected to the All-Tournament Team at last year's Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic.  Backcourt mate Malik Tidwell, a 5-10 senior guard, averaged 17.7 points and 4.1 rebounds as a junior.  6-6 Chris White tallied 10.5 points and 6.2 rebounds as a junior last season.  That's a pretty good start.  Add to the mix 6-5 Blair Crutcher, 6-3 Breion Hill, 5-11 Jordan Green and 6-3 Elijah Jones, and you have the makings of another team that could take home a trophy or two this season.  By the way, the Spartans took home some more hardware last Christmas by capturing the Consolation Championship trophy at the 2017 Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic.
