The first team included Illinois players Aston Francis, a sophomore at Wheaton College; Chrishawn Orange, a sophomore at Augustana who hails from Algonquin; Juwan Henry, a North Park senior from Chicago; Alex Sorenson, a junior at North Central College who’s from Dunlap; and Brady Rose, an Illinois Wesleyan University junior.
Francis, Orange, Robinson, Henry and Sorenson were unanimous selections.

Cobbs, a North Park senior from Evergreen Park; Erwin Henry, a North Central junior from Chicago; and Trevor Seibring, an Illinois Wesleyan senior from Towanda.
