CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A big crowd turned out Wednesday night to watch a suburban high school's controversial basketball team.

Mooseheart played Hinckley-Big Rock High School, and the line to get in ran outside the gym and down the block.

In fact, FOX 32 News couldn't get our camera inside because the fire and police chief said the gym was packed to its legal capacity.

Hinckley-Big Rock coaches claimed four very tall transfer students from the Sudan gave Mooseheart an unfair advantage in a recent lawsuit.

After once saying the players were eligible, the IHSA ruled them ineligible. Mooseheart is appealing that ruling.

The four players are still on the team during the appeal. But Mooseheart lost 58 to 51.

    If the Blackhawks can come back to defeat St. Louis in this series their character and resolve should never be questioned. Following a devastating triple overtime loss in Game 1 the Hawks suffered an even more agonizing defeat in Game 2.
