The Rock Island Rocks com¬ pleted a successful 1968—69 basketball season with a 14— 10 record. After a slow start, the Rocky cagers quickly gained momentum, winning ten games in twelve outings including six straight. How¬ ever the Rocks then finished in a slump, losing their last four games. The Rocks posted three outstanding wins. They blasted arch rival Moline 85— 57, and played masterfully in whipping highly rated Rock¬ ford West. In the Regional Tournament the Rocks earned 212 a finals berth, playing their finest game of the year, beat¬ ing East Moline 68—61. The Rocks, starting only one player over 6 ' 0 " , combatted their lack of height with an aggressive defense and a de¬ termined attitude.
