2007: Ta'Shia Phillips
The much anticipated rematch of last year's Class 3A state final game was postponed due to weather on Saturday. Fort Wayne Luers, who lost to Brebeuf 54-38 in last year's state championship game, brings in a 13-1 record ranked No. 3 in Class 3A. Brebeuf currently is ranked at No. 9.

A week ago last Saturday, Phillips led again in a 61-45 win over South Bend Riley. Phillips has 25 points, 12 in the second quarter that stretched the lead into double digits. Indiana State bound Kendra Reynolds led Riley with 14.
