REBELS KNOW THE HCHC COMPETITION


When a team is making their first appearance at the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic, there seems to be a learning curve to figure out the competition.  TF South may be making their first showing at HC Squared this winter, but the Rebels are not foreign to the competition.  TF South has traditionally faced both Homewood-Flossmoor and Marian Catholic in the annual Chicago Heights Classic Thanksgiving Tournament -- and have played both teams very competitively.  Last year's Rebels squad won 19 games.  Todd Gillespie is the new head coach. Some players to watch this year include 6-7 senior wingman Elijah Watson, 5-11 transfer point guard Ahkil Lindsey and 6-5 sophomore Xavier Lewis, who started on the varsity as a freshman last year.
