Rock Island's Shavonne Brewer heads a list of seven Western Big 6 Conference players selected to the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association's combined Class 3A/4A Girls' All-State team.

Brewer and Galesburg's Jessica Lieber both earned third-team honors Friday, with the team unveiled after the group's annual meeting at the 3A/4A state finals in Normal.

Brewer and Lieber were named honorable mention all-staters earlier this week by the Illinois Associated Press, which honors only five-player first and second teams in each class, and requires at least two votes from a statewide media panel to make the honorable mention list.

The IBCA's Special Mention list also includes United Township's tandem of Katie Daggett and Jen VanWatermeulen, the Alleman duo of Anne Bohnert and Erin Morrisey and Moline's Morgan Gerard.

Of the QC honorees, all are seniors except Morrisey, who is a junior.
