MOLINE, Ill. (AP) — Here are the Illinois Associated Press Class 1A-4A All-State boys’ basketball teams as voted on by a statewide panel of sports writers, broadcasters, and internet-site reporters.
All media members covering high school basketball in the state were eligible to nominate and vote for players. Compiled by Steve Tappa of MC22 and QCSportsNet (formerly of the Moline Dispatch and the Rock Island Argus).
Players received five points for a first-team vote and three points for a second-team vote. A five-player first team and five-player second team were selected in each class. A player must have been named on two ballots to receive honorable mention. All selections listed in order of voting points.
The peak was slightly lower than forecast but still high enough to test the region's flood defenses and to keep officials on guard. Many larger cities have flood walls but Davenport relies on temporary sand-filled barriers and allows the river to flood in riverfront parks.
