The Galesburg Silver Streaks Boys Basketball team didn't let the possibility of snow keep them from notching their seventh straight win Friday night. The Streaks beat Rock Island Alleman 70-56. Devyn Ross led the Streaks with a career-high 22 points, 18 of which came in the first half. Denzel Jones followed with 17 points. Tyson Parks didn't play because of a head injury. The Streaks are now second in the Western Big 6 Conference at 5 and 1, and they're 19-6 overall.
The GHS Sophomore Boys defeated Alleman 60-32.
The Silver Streaks girls were to play at home Saturday versus Peoria Manual, but that game has been cancelled.
