FIRST TEAM

Bernie Conley

Hinckley-Big Rock, senior, guard

Conley helped lead a senior-laden team to back-to-back Little Ten titles. He was the Royals’ leading scorer at 13 points a game and also averaged better than three assists and two steals a contest. Along with Jared Madden, his pressure on the ball made the Royals a rugged defensive unit.

Devin Mottet

Sycamore, junior, wing

Sycamore’s offense often ran through Mottet, who was one of the most versatile players in the area. He created matchup problems for opponents with his ability to set up in the post and hit shots from beyond the arc, averaging 15.4 points a game. He’s also a very skilled passer for a forward, averaging 2.3 assists a game.

Scott Nelson

Sycamore, senior, center

Nelson is the Daily Chronicle Player of the Year and a major reason for the Spartans more than doubling their win total from a year ago. Few teams had an answer for Nelson inside. He was the area’s most skilled big man, a great offensive rebounder and also a very good free-throw shooter.

Matt Limbrunner

Kaneland, senior, forward

Limbrunner was the Knights’ go-to scoring option, averaging almost 14 points and six rebounds a game. The senior helped Kaneland to an Northern Illinois Big 12 East championship after a slow start to the season.

Adam Price

Genoa-Kingston, senior, forward

On a team lacking a lot of depth in the front court, Price provided much-needed scoring inside, averaging better than 16 points a game along with eight rebounds. Price helped lead G-K to a 16-11 record, but the Cogs were ousted in the regional quarterfinals after moving up to Class 3A this season.
