Boys basketball: Naperville Central regional final scouting

Class 4A Naperville Central regional final

No. 4 Hinsdale Central (22-6) vs. No. 5 Naperville Central (20-7)

Story Continues Below

Outlook: The Red Devils, with four key contributors standing 6-foot-5 or taller, are one of the few teams in the sectional capable of matching Naperville Central's potent post combo of 6-8 Nick Czarnowski and 6-6 Patrick Maloney, who scored a personal-high 35 points in the semis. The Redhawks' guards stepped up in Wednesday's win, and they'll need three-year starter Ryan Antony, who hurt his knee, healthy and ready to go. Six-seven Matt Rafferty, averaging 18 points and 12 rebounds, is a force on his own for Hinsdale Central. Senior guard Chase Hamilton's leadership and athleticism in the backcourt is another critical element for the two-time West Suburban Silver champs.

Advancement: The winner advances to play the winner of the Lemont regional final between Benet and Waubonsie Valley in Tuesday's East Aurora sectional semifinals.
