Cierra Davis, who played a major role in the Annawan Bravettes' IHSA Class 1A state basketball title, has signed to continue her basketball and academic careers at Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo.

The Plainswomen finished the 2013-14 season with a 14-15 record.

She averaged 14.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, and just less than three steals per game for the 30-4 team that beat Carrollton 59-23 in the state title game.

Davis, a versatile athlete who played point guard and shooting guard and could even play the post, earned numerous post-season awards. The first-team All-Lincoln Trail Conference selection was an Associated Press second-team All-State selection and IBCA All-State special-mention pick.
