The city’s top teams battle in tiny packed gyms each winter. One of the biggest rivalries on the South Side is
between the Bogan Bengals and Morgan Park Mustangs. Both have won Chicago city titles and Illinois state titles in recent years.
It’s early in the season, but undefeated #2 (in Chicago area) Bogan (5-1) went into #4 Morgan Park (4-1) who were fresh off a loss to Vashon from St Louis.
Bogan was up 16 in the first half, but Morgan Park came back to earn a 85-77 win, driving members of Bogan’s squad to tears.
After scoring 28 points, Morgan Park star junior Adam Miller said to the Sun Times, “Whoever loses is going to cry. That is just what happens. We love to play them and they played a hell of a game.”
Chris Roberts score 27 points for Morgan Park. Karl Jones added 11 points.
Bogan’s Coach Goodwin called this Morgan Park squad one of it’s “worst teams” calling them “Adam Miller and the four blind mice.”
Bogan was led by Jordan Booker (19 points), Rashuan Agee (25 points, 14 rebounds) and transfer Kennedy Brown (13 points, 8 rebounds).
