An undefeated Western Big 6 Conference boys' basketball run carried Rock Island to the league title. Four starters who averaged double figures helped the Rocks earn the championship.

Those four -- seniors C.J. Carr (14.2 points per game), Keenan Shorter (13.8) and Trey Sigel (10.7) and junior Tyler Hall (10.6) -- each received All-Big 6 first-team honors.

Also earning first-team accolades were Moline's Brandon Vice (14.7) and Tyler Biscontine (10.8), United Township's Lamont Mitchell (11.2), Galesburg's Grant Gibson (league-best 20.4) and Ethan Meeker (12.0) and Quincy's Zach Burry (9.9).

Alleman's Kevin O'Keeffe, Moline's Sean Hanley, Galesburg's Tyson Parks and Quincy's Lincoln Elbe, Connor Mellon and Alec Shoot all were honorable mention.
