Creighton juniors Kelli Browning, Leah McNary and Michelle Sicner were each selected to All-Big East teams, the conference announced Wednesday.

Browning and McNary were first-team selections, while Sicner was named to the second team. Browning earned first team all-conference honors for the second straight year, while McNary was a second-team All-MVC selection in 2012.

The winners were chosen by a vote of the league’s head coaches.
