How they are chosen
The NOW sports staff begins compiling each All-Suburban team by contacting all coaches in its coverage area and asking for nominations. Coaches provide comments on each player and season statistics.
That information is put on a ballot to which NOW reporters add their own first-hand impressions of players.
Each staff member then votes for the 10 players he feels should be on the team, ranking them from 10 to 1. The player with the most points is named the Player of the Year and the next nine players are also named to the team.
Those players receiving votes who do not make the team earn high honorable mention and those who are nominated but don't receive votes earn honorable mention.
Germantown's Ben Averkamp collected his second consecutive NOW All-Suburban Player of the Year honor after leading the Warhawks to the state finals for the second year in a row. The 6-foot-8 inch senior will continue his basketball career next season at Loyola of Chicago.
South Milwaukee's Andrew Windler proved to be a difficult foe for opponents to handle during the 2008-09 campaign. The senior, an all-Southeast Conference selection, shot 44 percent from 3-point range and has improved his game each season.
Eisenhower's Austin Selvick credited his older brother for inspiring his competitive nature. The senior developed into a floor leader for the Lions this season to earn a spot on the All-Suburban team.
Whitefish Bay's Jimmy Sherburne helped lead the Dukes to a 21-2 overall record and a North Shore Conference title. A hard-fought victory over Germantown, breaking the Warhawks' 30-game regular-season winning streak, was especially sweet.
Eric Williams has proven to be the person to take, and make, the clutch shot the last two seasons for Wauwatosa East. This season it was a crucial tip-in against Milwaukee Washington. Last year it was a 3-pointer in the title game his coach said was the biggest shot in school history.
