Chicago has produced many NBA basketball stars. Some high school stars like Derrick Rose are covered heavily by the media. Others like Anthony Davis went completely under the radar (besides some 14judge and SwagAir videos).
Completely unknown 6’10 Chicago Corliss senior George Conditt had a breakout summer with local program Team RWA before committing to Iowa State.
Even as a high major recruit, Conditt and his Corliss team don’t get much coverage because they don’t play in the Chicago Public League’s Red (high) Divisions.
With an 18-3 record, Corliss entered the city playoffs as a huge underdog against first round opponent North Lawndale College Prep, one of the strongest teams on the city’s West Side (Red Division).
NLCP got out to a big early lead but Corliss fought back, pulling off a 60-58 upset win on the road.
George Conditt finished with 19 points, 19 rebounds, seven blocks. He dominated the paint on the defensive end.
Guard Kobe Mapp finished with 18 points for Corliss.
NLCP was missing some players. 2019 Demetrius Douglas led NLCP with 20 points. David Forrest scored 7 points, 11 rebounds and Marquese Becton scored 8 with 8 rebounds for NLCP.
Corliss coach Harvey Jones was a former North Lawndale assistant coach. Next, Corliss faces #1 Simeon where Coach Jones also used to coach.
Also Iowa State basketball commits George Conditt and Talen Horton-Tucker will face-off for the first (and last) time in high school basketball.
Check out these raw highlights from Chicago Corliss’ big playoff win versus North Lawndale College Prep High School.
After the highlights, stay tuned for postgame comments from Iowa State commit George Conditt and coach Harvey Jones.
