St. Charles East boys basketball coming to Chuck Dayton tourney

St. Charles East boys basketball will move on to DeKalb’s Chuck Dayton Holiday Tournament now that East and 15 other schools were booted from a downsized Proviso West tournament field.

Proviso West tournament organizers recently decided to trim the field in half from 32 teams to 16. 

Although the Proviso West tournament is among the state’s most prestigious, East coach Pat Woods wrote in an email that the change is “fine with me.”

“We are looking forward to the new tournament and seeing some different teams in the DeKalb tourney,” Woods wrote.
