The electrifying, undersized 2018 point guard transferred into 2A defending state champs Orr.
While being named preseason #1 Chicago area team by the Sun Times, the season started off a bit rocky with close one-possesion losses to big-school state title-contenders Danville and Curie.
Now Orr is starting to click. In the Proviso West Holiday Tournament semifinals Orr faced conference rivals Chicago Uplift featuring Kansas Jayhawks commit Markese Jacobs. It was a highly-anticipated matchup between the 2019 PG (Markese) vs the 2018 PG (Chase).
The game was never close! Markese Jacobs finished with 7 points. Orr won in a blowout 92-38. It was 51-13 at the half! Chase Adams scored 12 points in the first quarter then sat
much of the rest of the half after the score was too lopsided. Ty Mosley (UW-Milwaukee) played his back game since returning from injury.
Orr used everyone from their bench. They also went on to defeat Chicago powerhouse (top 5 team) Whitney Young by 16 points to win the title.
Dannie Smith, Raekwon Drake and Chase Adams were all named All-Tournament Team. Chase averaged 12.3 points per game for the tournament in 23 minutes per game (4 blowout wins). He led Orr with 18 assists was second with 5 steals. He averaged 3 rebounds and shot 52% from field, 92% from the line.
Following the tournament, Chase Adams picked up a Division 1 scholarship offer from University of Illinois at Chicago and Coach Steve McClain.
