Boys basketball: Scouting the Class 4A Leyden regional final

Class 4A Leyden regional final

No. 14 Lake Park (16-14) vs. No. 6 Glenbard North (21-5)

Outlook: Lake Park scored one of the state's biggest semifinal upsets by knocking off third-seeded Oak Park. Now the challenge is to beat the rival Panthers -- the DuPage Valley Conference champs. Lake Park's youth has been an issue all season, but senior Sean Moore has developed as a true go-to player. The Lancers need Marcus McDaniel's defense and Cameron Van Aswegen's perimeter shooting to counter the Panthers' Chip Flanigan, averaging 20 points, and Jeremiah Fleming, who's knocked down 80 3-pointers. Panthers floor leader Justin Jackson and top defender Kendall Holbert are proven football winners. Don't underestimate the impact of that in a title-game atmosphere.

Advancement: The winner advances to play the winner of the Elk Grove regional final between Proviso East and Riverside-Brookfield in Wednesday's Bartlett sectional semifinals.
