There is only one thing more fun than playing meaningful games in February, according to Hinsdale Central coach Nick Latorre.  Playing meaningful games in March.  Latorre's boys basketball team, which is riding an eight-game winning streak, has accomplished the first part of that equation as the league-leading Red Devils prepare for a crucial four-game stretch to finish the West Suburban Silver season.  The squad heads into Friday's road matchup against Proviso West with a 7-1 mark in the league. York, which Hinsdale Central plays on Tuesday, stands at 7-2 and Oak Park-River Forest is next with three losses.  A game against Lyons Township on Saturday and a Friday, Feb. 15 contest vs. Glenbard West round out the slate.  "We have four games in eight days," Latorre said. "It will be interesting. It will definitely determine the outcome of the league.  "We play York in there and Proviso West, they just beat Oak Park and York their last two games. They are playing really well right now."  In fact, Proviso West has won five consecutive conference games after opening up league play 0-4 which included a 69-54 loss to the Red Devils back on Dec. 21.  "They have Dominick Roby back," Latorre said. "Seeing them on tape, they are playing extremely hard. They are really getting after it. They have very talented, athletic kids. We need to take care of the ball and rebound no doubt."  As for LT, the Lions are always dangerous despite their 2-7 conference mark.  "They came in last year and beat us," Latorre said. "They shoot the heck out of it. We will have to play really well."
