LOOK FOR THE BULLDOGS TO START QUICKLY


It took a little bit of time for coach Chris Passafiume's team to figure out how to play with one another last year.  The Bulldogs went 0-4 at the 2017 Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic, but as the calendar turned to 2018, Richards turned to the win column early and often and ended the season with a South Suburban Red Division conference championship.  Four starters return from that championship team and now they can play with each other as good as anyone.  Albert Jones, a 6-3 junior averaged 12.8 points in last year's HCHC.  Another junior, 6-4 guard Paul Zilinskas averaged 11.3 points on the Hinsdale hardwood.  6-3 senior Trevon Jones (9.3 ppg) and 6-1 junior guard (6.5 ppg) all return with varsity starting experience.   Watch for seniors Marquel Porter and Walter Riley to add additional scoring punch for the Bulldogs.
