BOISE, Idaho - Boise State's Deanna Weaver has received Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Honorable Mention All-America recognition. Weaver is the third Bronco all-time to reach honorable mention status, one step from earning All-America honors. She joins Lidiya Varbanova (1993 and 1994) and Michelle Schultz (1995) as the only three Boise State women's basketball players to be honored nationally with this recognition.

"Even though she only played three semesters for us, Deanna was a major factor and contributor to our success over the last two years and is deserving of this recognition," said coach Gordy Presnell. "She worked hard from day one and led the team by example. Her work ethic will take her a long way in life, she is a proven winner and I wish her the best as she moves on in whatever she chooses to do."

This was just one of several honors garnered by Weaver this spring, in addition to being a two-time all-conference honoree she was named to the WBCA All-Region Seven Team two weeks ago joining Nevada's Mimi Mungedi and Wyoming's Marquelle Dent as the only three Mountain West players honored. She is the fourth Bronco to receive all-region honors joining JoAnn Burrell (1977), Lidiya Varbanova (1993 and 1994) and Michelle Schultz (1995).
