No one who follows girls basketball in Illinois would dispute Huntley’s potential to accomplish big things in the future. But the question for the Red Raiders going into Monday night’s Class 4A Dundee-Crown supersectional was how a team with only one senior starter would handle the big challenge it faced in Wheaton Warrenville South.
