Covering High School Sports in America
In high school basketball, a lot can change in a week.

Seven days ago, Whitney Young (Chicago) was ranked No. 1 nationally heading into a showdown with Windy City rival Simeon.

The Dolphins lost that contest, dropping to No. 3 in this week's Xcellent 25, but remained in national championship contention.

Jamal McDowell's heroics helped Orr add to Whitney Young's misery Friday night, not only making national title hopes a long shot, but also costing them the Chicago Public League Red-West title.

While the video of McDowell's buzzer beater isn't exactly broadcast quality, the celebration and reaction of the cameraman are what high school sports are all about.
