The last two wins have been big for the Oak Forest Bengals. The boys’ varsity basketball team recently beat rival T.F. North High School, 64-56. They also beat rival Lemont in a hard-fought, double-overtime 63-58 win.

These wins improve Oak Forest’s record to 24 wins with one single loss. The boys not only have a 95% win record, but they are on a 20-game winning streak.

I spoke to point guard Jadareon Evans, and he said, “ I really think we are the best team out there, and I think we really have a good chance to win state.”

Oak Forest currently has the best record in the Conference; it is considered one of the best teams in the state, according to Max Prep.

Oak Forest Cheerleader Isaac Cardenas said, “It’s so fun to watch the boys dominate while I’m cheering [and it] makes me want to work twice as hard to keep the crowd involved.”

The boys have another home game on February 18 versus Manteno High School at 6:30. Come and support the Bengals as they try to add another win to their already-impressive record.
