Finishing second place in the White Central division with a 24-9 record, the 'Hawks earned the #9 seed in the ABA Playoffs, defeating their brother franchise, the Sauk Valley Rollers in the first round by a score of 100-86, and then scoring a forfeit win over Central division champion Minnesota Ripknees (who had decided not to play in the playoffs due to a monetary dispute). The 'Hawks would lose to eventual ABA runner-up Texas Tycoons in the quarterfinals by a score of 125-123.
The Riverhawks changed venues to the Wharton Field House in Moline, Illinois (former home to the NBA's Tri-Cities Blackhawks and later the CBA's Quad City Thunder), and changed their affiliation to the Premier Basketball League along with their brother franchise, the Rock River Fury. They had a successful season on the court, winning the regular season PBL West title.
Due to venue issues, the Riverhawks elected to take the 2008-2009 PBL season off.
