On December 3, the boys basketball team beats rival Niles West in a close game with a score of 49-46. This win allowed for them to keep the North vs West trophy for the 4th year in a row. 

Later on that week on December 6, the boys won a huge conference game against Deerfield High School 50-47. 

The boys also defeated Joliet West on Sunday, December 8. Joliet West was an undefeated team but that did not faze Niles North. Senior, Aquan Smart led the game with a career high 38 points. He scored 18 points in the 4th quarter which put the Vikings back on top. 

Niles North is ranked number 23 out of the top 25 Chicago high school basketball teams. 

The boys team is currently off to a very good start and hope to continue to have a good season.

The Niles North varsity basketball team has their first home non-conference game vs. Amundsen (Chicago, IL) tonight at 7p.m. Make sure to go out and support!
