Scouting DuPage County Boys Basketball '19-'20

Dave Oberhelman and Kevin Schmit for the Daily Herald

Downers Grove South

Coach: Kris Olson.

Last year: 14-16, 4-8, tied for fifth in the West Suburban Gold; lost 59-47 to Benet in the Class 4A Addison Trail regional semifinals.

Top players: Justin Eagins, sr., G; Wes Hooker, sr., G; Charlie Furman, sr., G; Kamonte Brown-Poe, sr., G; J.T. Jablonski, sr., C; Karolis Vaitkevicius, sr., G; Timmeon Gamble, sr., G; Jake Dimovski, so., G; Chris Gory, jr., F.


Scouting report: Loaded with backcourt talent and experience, the Mustangs eye the Gold title. Eagins, who last season averaged 16.9 points and hit 83 3-pointers, Hooker, a three-year varsity member who added 12.2 points, and Furman are just the start. "I think we're much deeper than last year, especially in the backcourt," Olson said. Eagins is stronger and more athletic, and Hooker's shooting has improved. Brown-Poe didn't play last year due to injury, Gamble is a transfer from Proviso West and Dimovski comes from Timothy Christian. The Mustangs are thinner on experience in the post, although 6-foot-8 Jablonski and Gory are a good start. "We have our top few scorers, but we'll also have a bunch of guys who are going to score 6 to 8 points," Olson said. "This could be a special group."  Click here for full story
