Three Weber State players earned All-Big Sky Conference honors for the 2007-08 season when the team was announced earlier this week.

The teams were voted on by the league's head coaches.

Weber State's Arturas Valeika, a 6-foot-9 senior forward from Lithuania, was named to the six-man first team. WSU's Dezmon Harris, a 6-1 senior guard from Fort Worth, Texas, was named to the second team, and the Wildcats' Daviin Davis, a 6-4 junior forward from Midland, Texas, earned honorable-mention honors.

Valeika was the leading rebounder in the Big Sky Conference this season, both in overall games (10 rpg) and in the 16-game Big Sky season, where he averaged 11.3 per game. He averaged 9.8 points per game overall and shot just over 49 percent from the field. His season-high scoring game was 22 against Youngstown State. Valeika earned honorable mention All-Big Sky Conference honors last year as a junior.

Harris was WSU's leading scorer this season, averaging 10.9 points per game overall and 12.8 during league play. He had a season high 27 points in WSU's 78-76 win on the road over Montana State. Harris was the Big Sky's third-best overall free throw shooter at .814 (70-of-86), and was first in Big Sky games at .875 (42-of-48). He was 44-of-99 (.444) from the 3-point line overall and 30-of-64 (.469) in league play. Davis averaged just 8.4 points per game overall but averaged 10.8 ppg in the 16-game Big Sky schedule. He scored a career-high 23 points in WSU's 73-68 homecourt win over league champion Portland State. He was 59-of-79 (.747) from the free-throw line but jumped that up to 82.3 (51-of-62) in league play. He led WSU in dunks with 19.

Portland State's Jeremiah Dominguez, a 5-6 junior guard, was named the league MVP and also the top newcomer, becoming the first player in Big Sky history to be accorded those two honors in the same season. Dominguez transferred to PSU last season from the University of Portland and sat out the 2006-07 campaign as a redshirt. Portland State center Scott Morrison, a 6-11 senior, was named the league's defensive player of the year, and Sacramento State guard Vinnie McGhee was named the freshman of the year.
