Essig Report Messages



Most Recent Rating Report - Reports will usually be posted by Tuesday with scores through the previous Saturday included in the analysis.

The Reports are primarily intended to rank Illinois 4A & 3A Teams - 2A and 1A teams are included in the Rankings only if they play in a conference with 3A teams or play a significant number of 3A or 4A teams that would impact the rankings of 3A or 4A Teams.
Only games against Illinois teams are included.

The Essig Report is a computerized tabulation of the comparative strengths of large school Illinois Boys Basketball teams, based on the mean average of results of games played to-date when measured against the strength of the competition. Read the History and Methodology of the Essig Report.

Coaches are encouraged to review the won-lost records in our report and to advise us if any games appear to be missing from the calculations or scores are in error. Keep in mind that results of games played against out-of-state opponents are not included, nor are those against many smaller schools.
