SLU commit Keith Carter leads Proviso East (Maywood, IL) to 25-0 regular season (top 20 in nation)

Under first year coach Donnie Boyce, West Suburban Proviso East ran the table in the regular season (25-0) and are currently ranked #18 in the ESPNU national poll.
Now they move on to the Illinois HS state tournament.
Notable Proviso East (Maywood, IL) basketball alums include Glenn “Doc” Rivers (Celtics head coach), Shannon Brown (brother of current junior star Sterling Brown) and Michael Finley.
Thanks to everyone at Proviso East High School.
