LIONS GROWING UP FAST AT HC SQUARED


It seemed like yesterday that Urban Prep Englewood showed up with a bunch of promising freshman and sophomore players on their varsity team at the inaugural Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic.  The calendar pages have fast forwarded to the 2017-18 season and some of those players have really grown up.  Shooting guard Fred Cleveland II, son of Lions' head coach Fred Cleveland, became a known quantity by setting the tournament's single season three-point scoring mark and is currently the all-time three-point career record holder at HCHC.  The 5-6 Cleveland  is now a junior but has earned All-Conference recognition in the Chicago Public League in both his freshman and sophomore seasons.  Six-foot, seven-inch Jace Lee, was Urban Prep's second leading rebounder at last year's HCHC, and is now a senior.  6-4 junior Sean Faulkner saw major minutes as a starter last year and gained valuable playing time.  The Lions will look to build on these experiences to offset the close losses that the team had at HCHC last year.  Urban Prep was on the wrong end of three one-point losses at last year's HC Holiday Classic.  Odds are that opponents will not want to go down to the wire this year with the more experienced Lions.
