HINSDALE NEWCOMER SET TO CONTINUE HISTORY

A funny thing happens to first time entrants at the Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic -- they win the championship.  Crespi Carmelite won the 2015 title in their first appearance.  So did Bolingbrook in 2016 and Saint Rita in 2017.  We can already guess what the Wolves have on their mind for December of 2018.  Oswego East has a legitimate claim to think about a championship with three outstanding returning players.  Ray J Dennis, a 6-2 guard, has committed to Boise State, and is one of the highest rising stars of the Class of 2019.  Dennis averaged 17.8 points, 5.0 assists, 4.2 assists per game while netting 66 three-pointers last year.  6-6 junior Sam Schultz was the MVP of last year's East Aurora Tournament and averaged 14 points, 11.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists as a sophomore on the varsity.  6-5 guard Kameron Battle, the son of former NBA standout Kenny Battle, also averaged in double digits last year and tallied 11.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists per contest.  In addition to the trio of returnees, Demari Grant, a 5-11 senior transfer from Bolingbrook is expected to make an impact in the backcourt.  Will history repeat itself for this first-time newcomer at Hinsdale Central?


 

 
   



Ray J Dennis will attend Boise State next year.
