Joe Henricksen of the City/Suburban Hoops Report provides an interesting breakdown of Neuqua Valley hoops here on his Sun-Times-affiliated blog. The Wildcats are coming off Tuesday's 68-65 victory over Bolingbrook and Wisconsin recruit Diamond Taylor. Henricksen writes:
"Looking at Neuqua Valley's schedule, (it) could very well ride into the MLK Tournament in Rockford in the middle of January unbeaten. Sure, both St. Charles North and East Aurora could give them a scare in upcoming Upstate Eight games, and the Wildcats will be tested at the Elgin Holiday Tournament later this month, but this team is for real. After the MLK Tournament the Wildcats will see South Elgin and Geneva, a pair of surprising teams, and Downers Grove South in late February."
