Although temperatures hovered on either side of zero this morning around the state, things will be heating up fast as the large school regionals in the boys IHSA state tournament commence tonight from north to south and east to west.

The Richwoods Knights downed Central last Friday night in the latest renewal of the schools' long standing rivalry. The game also marked the last basketball game in the history of the Mid State 6 conference which will merge with the Big 12 next season. The young Knights, after two tough losses the previous weekend to top teams, now head into the state tournament with a win under their belt as they hope to create some havoc in the upcoming 3A tournament.

The fate of the four Chicago teams banned from IHSA tourney play last week has now been finally determined. Bogan, Uplift and Hyde Park, all of whom were banned for infractions involving the number of games played, can now participate after all. The coaches have been suspended from this year's tournament instead. It was also announced today ( that Cliff Alexander and Chicago Curie will also be allowed to participate. The eligibility of several players was the issue in this instance. Nine players have been deemed to satisfy the IHSA requirements and the team will thus be allowed to play. Coach Mike Oliver will also sit this year out similarly with the above mentioned coaches.
