Season Pass

Simeons Jabari Parker didnt just dominate the Wolverines 81-68 win over Oak Hill Monday at the Hoop Hall Classic in Springfield, Mass. He put on a show.

The 6-9 Duke recruit scored in nearly every way possible, impressing a national television audience with his post moves, three point shooting, transition baskets, mid-range game and high-flying dunks. He finished with 28 points and five rebounds, shooting 12-for-19 from the floor.

Parker scored Simeons first 11 points, helping the Wolverines to an 11-5 lead they never relinquished.

Simeon senior Jaylon Tate, an Illini recruit, ran the show. He scored 10 points and handed out eight assists, helping the Wolverines, play with more focus and cohesion then theyve demonstrated all season.

Oak Hill, ranked No. 10 in the country by USA Today was able to cut the Simeon lead to three points numerous times in the second half, but the Wolverines, ranked No. 11 by USA Today continually responded.

Kendrick Nunn added 21 points and nine rebounds and Kendall Pollard scored 11. Sophomore DJ Williams continued his recent emergence, adding eight points off the bench for Simeon (15-2).
