(3-30-23) The Illinois Pork Producers recognized amazing performances on the hardwood throughout 2022-23 by naming the Pork Power Boys & Girls Basketball Players of the Week during the regular-season (see all weekly honorees here).
That honor culminated with the naming of the Pork Power Players of the Year, as Quincy Notre Dame High School senior guard Abbey Schreacke and Moline High School senior guard Brock Harding were both recognized for their outstanding respective seasons.
Harding and Schreacke
Quincy Notre Dame’s Abbey Schreacke (Sr 6’0 G) averaged 21.5 points, 10.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists a game. She led the Raiders to a 3rd place finish in Class 2A this season and to a state title in 2022.
She is the all-time leading scorer in Quincy boys and girls basketball with over 2,200 career points.
She will continue her basketball career at Missouri.
University of Missouri Women’s Basketball head coach Robin Pingeton said-
“They say you can’t coach effort, and I am confident I will never have to with Abbey. She is as competitive as they come, she’s tough, and she’s a proven winner, as her all-state honors and championships in multiple sports demonstrate. Her blue-collar, relentless work-ethic will raise the bar in our workouts, practices, and games in a way that we trust will elevate our program. Not only is she a talented basketball player, but she is an equally talented student with 4.0 GPA and impressive academic achievements. She is the definition of well-rounded, and we cannot wait to get her to Columbia!”

Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery told 247sports.com on why he wanted Harding to be a Hawkeye-
“I think it was pretty simple.You just had to watch him play. He was really good in every area, no weaknesses. Gets where he wants to go on the floor, makes threes, makes pull-ups, finds people. Wreaks havoc on defense, great feel for how to play, great at the end of the game. He’s a winner.”
