Public League Playoffs Continue

As their professional counterparts return to the grind of the regular season following the All-Star break, the Chicago Public League kicks their basketball season in high gear with two semifinal playoff games Wednesday evening at DePaul University's Alumni Hall.

Forman (17-4, 8-1) will take on Hyde Park (20-3, 8-1) in a battle of Red North vs. Red Central while North Lawndale (19-5, 7-1) takes on national powerhouse Whitney Young (18-7, 9-0) in a clash of Red West rivals. Young beat North Lawndale 75-71 on January 16 and includes Marcus Jordan, son of some guy named Jordan who used to play a little ball here in Chicago, in its lineup.

Here's a little clip of Young in action in a tournament in New Jersey earlier this season.
