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.

    Given their history, last season sure was an odd one for the Chicago Bears. Just as they finally managed to get things right on offense, their defense pulled off quite a disappearing act. Well, it's back. At least, the Bears think it's back.

    The Chicago Bears know who's backing up starting quarterback Jay Cutler. Now they'd like to know their defense is backing up their offense.
