The Little 10 is the oldest continually running high school basketball conference in Illinois and was organized during the 1919-1920 school year with Earlville, Hinckley, Leland, Paw Paw, Plano, Rollo, Sandwich, Shabbona, Somonauk and Waterman as its charter schools. A conference tournament has been an annual event every season.

 

Sheridan was added in 1930, but dropped in 1939 with Serena taking their place. Rollo closed in 1954. Hinckley consolidated with Big Rock in 1957 to form Hinckley-Big Rock. In 1967, Sandwich and Plano left and Newark and Malta joined. Shabbona and Waterman consolidated to form Indian Creek in 1993, thus shortening the conference to nine teams. LaMoille joined in 1996. Malta closed in 2000. Kirkland Hiawatha joined in 2006 and that same year Earlville and Leland combined athletic programs to form Leland-Earlville.

 

 

The site is an attempt to preserve the Little Ten Conference's Boys Basketball Tournament history.  I have and am currently searching old newspaper clippings to help me try to recount each tournament and then writing a brief summary of what happen in that tournament, while also adding any other things that might be of interest.  This is all time consuming work, but I think in the end will make for a very informative site. 

 

Please feel free to send copies of any newspaper accounts, photos, or stories about the LTC Boys Basketball Tournament that you would like to share to the site or anything else you feel would be interesting (post season games, all-conference teams, scoring leaders).

 

Also if you see anything on this site (missing first names, mispelled names, stats) that you know of, feel free to let me know.
