Two weeks into the season, and the Lake Forest Scouts and North Chicago Warhawks are the lone area prep boys basketball teams still unbeaten.
They’ve clearly established themselves as the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the county.
But where things get interesting — and debatable — is when talk turns to the No. 3 team.
Right now, at least five clubs could lay claim to being No. 3 — a list that includes Zion-Benton, Stevenson, Warren, Lakes and Carmel.
Zion (5-1) holds a home win over Stevenson (4-1) and a near-miss loss to a quality Notre Dame squad.
Warren’s losses are to Waukegan and North Chicago, Lakes has lost to North Chicago and at Mundelein, and Carmel’s lost only to Prairie Ridge.
Things should begin to sort themselves out this week, as North Suburban Conference teams have league games on Tuesday and Saturday.
Tuesday’s gem will be Stevenson at Warren. Meanwhile, Carmel is home on Wednesday against Cary-Grove.
