For the first time in recent memory, the visiting South Side All-Stars (from Time 2 Shine Pro-Am Summer League) faced off against Chicago’s West Side All-Stars (from West Haven Safe Summer League) at Phoenix Military Academy on Chicago’s West Side.
As you will see, the lineups were stacked and the atmosphere was electric.
The South Side Team featured #7 Osiris Eldridge (NBDL), #11 Bobby Simmons (Clippers), Dexter Williams (Kings), #2 Jeremy Pargo (Grizzlies), as well as #10 Jerome Randle (Cal) and #6 Stefphon Hannah (Missou). But it was the undersized home team (West) who won big. Standouts included #3 David Bailey (Loyola), local favorite #5 Tony Bennett (Bradley), #4 Sherron Collins (Kansas), #2 Emmanuel Little (Euro Pro) and #8 Tyrone Kent (Toldeo) who was on fire throughout the game.
The West Side (Orange uniform) won by a final score of 103 – 71.
Thanks to Commissioner Lefty B. Boyd and everyone at West Haven Safe Summer League.
Special note: League finals are THU 8/16 at Chicago’s United Center (free admission).
