Curie basketball team cleared to play in state tournament
The Curie High School boys’ basketball team is back in contention for the state title.
The Illinois High School Association said today the team will be allowed to participate in the state tournament after all.
Last week, Chicago Public Schools stripped the top ranked team of all this season’s wins and the city championship due to academic ineligibility.
Coach Mike Oliver was suspended indefinitely.
On Monday, the IHSA announced nine players are eligible to compete, but two starters still can’t play.
Curie plays DuSable Tuesday night at King College.
