After making second team last season, Ozaukee sophomore Becca Schauer moved up a notch this year, nearly earning a unanimous selection to the Big East’s first team in basketball.

Schauer led the conference in assists with 108 and steals with 117. She led the Warriors in scoring with 14.2 points per game and averaged 4.5 rebounds per game.

“One coach didn’t put her in the top nine. Otherwise, she would have been unanimous,” coach Tim Wolff said.

“Becca is a great all-around player. She can shoot from the outside. She can drive to the basket. She  sees the court well. She has a great interpretation and awareness level. She really gets the game.”

Schauer’s two teammates, Elise Large and Amy Wolff, repeated as honorable mentions.

Large was second on the team in scoring with 9.6 points per game and second in rebounding with 4.9.

“She is our best defender. She is all over the court on defense. She is scrappy. She did a great job handling the ball, her and Becca together,” Wolff said.

“I never really had to worry with those two taking care of the ball.

In addition, Large was deadly from the outside.

“She was our leading three-point shooter. She was fifth in Ozaukee history in three-pointers made with 89,” Wolff said.

Wolff averaged 5.8 rebounds per game and could also drain the three.

“Amy had a great season. She was our top rebounder, and second all time in 3-pointers made with 100,” coach Wolff said.

Wolff was third on the team in scoring with 8.4 points per game, and played the other side of the court well.

“She was a great team defensive player. She was always in the right place.”

The trio led the Warriors to a 9-7 Big East record, tied for fifth place, and one playoff victory. Ozaukee finished 15-9 overall.

“What I can say about all three of them is that they definitely led by example. All three gave 110% all game long, regardless of whether it was on offense or defense,” Wolff said.

The Warriors’ hot outside shooting set a school record with 139 three-pointers in a season. They tied the school record for threes in one game with 11 against Random Lake, and broke it with 12 against St. Mary Central.

Cedar Grove-Belgium junior Ellie Felsinger earned honorable mention, leading the team with 11 points per game and seven rebounds per game. She tied for the team lead in assists with Alex Mentink, averaging nearly two per contest.

“Ellie really stepped up for us this year.  She worked hard all summer and fall to get ready and I believe it showed this season,” coach Jason Jones said.

“Ellie was also one of our team captains voted on by our team and coaches.  She had a great season and I know she is looking forward to improving for next season.”

The Rockets finished 8-8 and in 10th place of the 14-team league. They went 13-10 overall, their first time at .500 or better since 2011, and they won their first playoff game since 2014.
