The Illinois High School Association has announced that Bogan High School, Hyde Park and Uplift High Schools, all in Chicago, have violated IHSA rules that limit the number of regular-season boys basketball games and tournaments teams can play.

As a result, those three teams have been removed from the upcoming Class 3A boys basketball playoffs.

Uplift was scheduled to compete in the Antioch sectional.

That sectional, along with the Chicago Vocational sectional, in which Bogan and Hyde Park were to compete, have had the seeds and brackets adjusted for the absent teams.

Uplift had earned the No. 2 seed in the Antioch complex. Carmel moves up one spot as a result of the disqualification and will face the winner of No. 15 Kelvyn Park and No. 18 Sullivan on Tuesday at Grayslake Central.

"These situations don't occur very often, but it is always disappointing when they do," said IHSA Executive Director Marty Hickman in a release. "The season limitations are long-standing IHSA rules that are necessary to maintain competitive balance."
