Mr. Matt Monroe- Ignatius head boys' basketball coach- remarked: 'The opportunity to play the Jesuit Cup at the brand new, state-of-the-art Wintrust Arena gives us a venue fitting for a set of games with so much tradition and fan interest.  Our student-athletes are excited to have the chance to represent Saint Ignatius College Prep on the home floor of DePaul University in front of so many students, families, and alums. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we hope to bring the Jesuit Cup back home to the Wolfpack!'
