Attached is a list of Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60 senior girls’ basketball players for 2016-2017 as compiled by Hoosier Basketball Magazine. These girls were selected from approximately 1,400 senior players statewide. Eight players who will participate in the 2017 IHSAA State Finals highlight the list of the Top 60 invitees— Jazmyne Geist, Karissa McLaughlin and Madisen Parker (AAAA - Homestead), Nicole Konieczny and Daly Sullivan (AAA - South Bend St. Joe), Taylor Drury (AA - Eastern-Pekin), Brenna Maikranz (Class A - Wood Memorial) and Courtney Wise (Class A - Union City). The Top 60 Senior Workout includes the state’s top two leading scorers— Dana Evans, Gary West (36 ppg) and Macee Williams, Fountain Central (26.2). Also among the 2017 Top 60 selectees are nine girls who will play at “in-state” Division I basketball programs during the 2017-2018 season— Katie Helgason (Greenfield-Central) and Maliah Howard-Bass (Columbus North) at Ball State, Kayla Casteel (Plainfield) at Evansville, Diamond Williams (Ben Davis) and Jaelencia Williams (Southport) at Fort Wayne, Ajanae Thomas (North Central-Marion) at Indiana State, Brittany Welch (Sheridan) and Williams (Fountain Central) at IUPUI and Konieczny (South Bend St. Joe) at Valparaiso. Statistical evaluation, game observation and statewide research were conducted all season and throughout the state tournament to determine Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60. Two sessions of the 36th annual Top 60 Senior Workout will be hosted by Hoosier Basketball Magazine in conjunction with the IHSAA and the IBCA on Sunday, March 5th at Heritage Christian High School in Indianapolis (6401 East 75th Street). Half of the Top 60 girls, primarily from northern and southern Indiana, will participate in the first session (1:00-3:00 pm EST). The remaining players, primarily from central Indiana, will compete during the second session (3:30-5:30 pm EST). Seven-time state champion coach Rick Risinger (Heritage Christian) will direct both sessions. Five other outstanding Indiana girls' high school coaches from the IBCA have been invited to join the 2017 Top 60 staff — Brad Burden (Providence), Tom Downard (Indianapolis Ritter), Rodney Fisher (Gary West), Debbie Guckenberger (Brownsburg) and Gary Teel (Argos). Both sessions are open to the public for admission fee of $8.00 ($5 for students). Media can call (317) 925-8200 if interested in credentials for one or both sessions. The Top 60 girls follow.
