Starting four sophomores — even if one is the state’s top-ranked recruit in the class of 2022 — means Tinley Park will be inconsistent.

That was amply demonstrated just two games into the Titans’ season, at Mount Carmel’s Frank Kiszka Memorial Tournament.

After opening the season with a 64-54 loss to Solorio on Nov. 25, Tinley bounced back two days later with a 52-39 win over Johnson. Coach D.J. Brown described the Titans in those efforts as, “two completely different teams.”
