PATRIOTS CLAIM TO BE OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT


When your school has compiled a  record of 137-23 in the last last five years, has a state championship, three state tournament appearances, and had two Player of the Year candidates who are now playing in college, your program is probably on cruise control.  But because of the graduation of many principle players in that equation, expectations are not nearly as high for the Patriots -- or at least that is what it seems to be.  And that may be a dangerous formula for those opponents that may overlook the most successful program in the northern suburbs.  Coach Pat Ambrose has won 378 games at Stevenson over the past 18 years, but don't look for the Patriots to roll over this season.  One of the reasons for optimism is the return of 6-2 senior guard Jackson Qualley, who was the Patriots third leading scorer last year and combines a dead-eye outside shot with a high basketball IQ.  Qualley was moved up to the varsity team as a sophomore.  Also keep an eye on Samvit Ram, a 6-3 senior guard.  The Patriots finished fourth in the 2015 HCHC and were Consolation Champions last year.  Expect them to be in an unfamiliar setting and out of the bright lights at the season's start, but look for them to be more than a familiar fierce competitor come December.
