Scouting report: Few teams can handle Seton's full-court press or its depth. If the Sting can force turnovers and work into a transition game, it would be to their advantage. The Sting have a size advantage, but if St. Mel can handle the press and force Seton into mistakes, the Knights would be able to control the game. Seton had a few close ones in the postseason, so it will be ready. The Sting beat Leo 48-38 for the Herscher Sectional title. It was the third time this season they beat the Lions. St. Mel beat Tilden 65-52 to win the Lisle Sectional.

Directions: Take I-80 west (there are tolls) and exit at Richards Street (No. 133). Turn left on Washington Street, turn right onto South Eastern Avenue, then take a right on East Jefferson Street. The high school is on the left. ~! Compiled by Mike Nieto
