It's the kind of game that movies are made around.
Two teams, one town. Public vs. Parochial. Each team with more than 20 wins.
And the loser of Friday's game would be done for the season; eliminated in the finals of an Illinois regional championship.
Breese Central at crosstown Mater Dei.
The Knights' gym was packed and noisy, befitting of this kind of game.
And Central takes home the hardware, and the bragging rights, with a 41-38 win.
