The Rock Island boys' basketball team was tabbed No. 8 Tuesday in the final Illinois Associated Press Class 4A poll of the season.The statewide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters moved the Rocks (22-4) up one spot from last week. That move was aided by Chicago Heights Marian falling from eighth with a loss last week.

Chicago powerhouses Whitney Young (25-3 in 4A) and Morgan Park (26-3 in 3A) retained the No. 1 rankings in their respective classes.
