Proviso East, Simeon move spot in FAB 50

Proviso East and Simeon each moved a spot in this week’s ESPNHS’s POWERADE FAB 50 boys basketball rankings.

Simeon jumped one spot to No. 6 in the poll despite being last week off. The Wolverines (20-1) begin the Public League playoffs this week and could play three games in five days with the first round on Wednesday, the second round on Friday and the quarterfinals on Sunday.

Proviso East won twice last week, but still fell one spot to No. 27. The Pirates (19-0) were bumped because Paul IV Catholic from Virginia jumped from No. 28 to No. 9 after beating another nationally-ranked team. Proviso East plays Morton on Friday and Willowbrook on Saturday this week.

In the Midwest Region rankings, Simeon was ranked No.1, Proviso East was No. 4, Curie was No. 11 and Warren was No. 19.
