Wolfpack beats Friars 40-39.

Just returned from a St. Ignatius varsity boys' basketball away game at Dominican-run Fenwick High School in Oak Park. St. Ignatius fans were unsurprisingly outnumbered by supporters of the home court Fenwick Friars, but the Wolfpack faithful offered a level of audible enthusiasm that rivaled (and at times exceeded) the cheers of the much more numerous Fenwick fans. This psychological edge may have helped the Wolfpack beat the Friars - in overtime, mind you - by a single point, 40-39. I'm told this is a significant victory for St. Ignatius, as the Friars are one of our stronger opponents and have tended to defeat the Wolfpack in past matchups. I had just as much fun as I did at last week's Jesuit Cup game, and I look forward to cheering on the Wolfpack again next Friday when they take on Leo High School. Go Wolfpack, AMDG.

Jake -
The Wolfpack play the Vikings on Friday, February 10th. The game will be played at St. Laurence, so I'll have the chance to see your alma mater.
