Chicago Public League or Catholic League? North Suburban or South Suburban? Does the West Suburban Silver or Gold enter the fray? Joe Collins and Scott Phillips dive into a polarizing topic: which Chicagoland high school boys basketball conference is the best?

For help on the topic, we reached out to Oak Park-River Forest head coach Matt Maloney. His Huskies are currently ranked No. 7 in our Preps Power Rankings. They’re also in the thick of a very competitive West Suburban Silver conference race.
