Super Senior 25 will make for a stupendous season
Region Roundball Review

10/24/05 03:58 am by RRR | Back


Class of 2006

This is going to be a great girls basketball season in Indiana as evidenced by are our annual SUPER SENIOR 25 preseason picks for the Class of 2006 (listed alphabtically).  All of these individuals display outstanding skills and most carry exceptional statistics.  This class, by far, was the most difficult to pare down to just 25 players since we began this list in 1998.  As of the first day of practice, just four of these young women are undecided on their college choices at this point in time, while the other 21 are ready to make it official in a few weeks during the early signing period.

 

For those players we could not find room for in our Top 25, we've listed them as Honorable Mention selections.  These young women will be pushing our SUPER SENIOR 25 throughout the season, and don't be surprised if a few of them push their way near the front of the senior basketball class by the time tournament games begin.  We will be updating this list with college choices as they are announced. (*Indicates players from the Northwest Indiana Region.) 

Don't agree with our list?
Give us your thoughts on the Top 25 in the comments section below!


ASHLEY BARLOW (5’10), G

INDIANAPOLIS PIKE (NOTRE DAME)

DANIELLE BEN-TSVULUN (6’2), F

FORT WAYNE HARDING (NOTRE DAME)


Can take over a game, she’s a quick and agile guard who sees the floor very well. She can score from the perimeter or slash to the basket. A three-time All Conference player. Named to the Indiana Junior All-Star Core Team. Picked as a 2003 Southern Indiana All Star. Selected All-State by several publications. An IBCA/IHSAA Top 100 Showcase invitee. Listed as the 24th best player in the country by Full Court Press. Averaged 23.9 points and 5.9 assists per game last year.

A three year varsity starter. Named team co-MVP as a sophomore, MVP and conference POY as a junior. Over 16-point career scoring average. A 2nd team All State selection by both the Louisville Courier Journal and Hoosier Basketball Magazine. Selected to the AP All State 3rd team . A Top 100 underclassman as a sophomore, junior and senior. A member of the Indiana Junior All-Star North Team this past summer. Averaged 20.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per game last year.


LAURA BUGHER (6’0), G/F

INDIANAPOLIS LUTHERAN (BOWLING GREEN)

ASHLEY CHASE (5’10), G/F

SWITZERLAND COUNTY (EVANSVILLE)


Laura Bugher from the Indianapolis StarA great athlete who excels on both offense and defense. Plays bigger than her size. As a junior, Bugher led her 2004-05 team with 16.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.9 steals, and 2.7 assists per game on the way to a 20-6 season under Lutheran head coach Brett Andrews. Named to Indiana Junior All-Star Central Team this past summer.

Ashley Chase from the Madison CourierAs a junior, the 5'10 Chase averaged 18.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game at the forward position for head coach Wayne Ellegood. Known as a terrific ball handler, she may be asked to take on guard duties at the next level. Chase was a member of the South Junior All-Stars in June and was named a 2004 All Star at last summer's Blue Chip Camp in Louisville. She was also invited to the IBCA/IHSAA Top 100 Showcase.


AMBER HARRIS (6’6), F

NORTH CENTRAL (PURDUE)

SHARON HOUSTON* (6’3), F/C MERRILLVILLE (OLD DOMINION)

Amber Harris from the Indianapolis StarWhat can you say about this amazing young lady that hasn't already been said? She's a tremendous athlete who quickly appeared on most major college radar screens when she was just a freshman. She stands 6'6, but has the skills of a guard. With her tremendous athletic ability, she can run the fast break, beat most players up the floor, and even slam down the dunk! Harris is a do-everything super talent that has taken North Central to the top of the 4A podium the past two years. She is ranked as the No. 4 player in the country by Full Court Press. Miss Harris has the potential to be one of the best players Indiana has ever produced.

Sharon HoustonAlthough she won't be in action until December due to IHSAA transfer rules, the 6'3 lean and lanky post player will be one of the top impact players in NWI this season. After an abbreviated junior season at Gary Lew Wallace, Houston packed her bags and enrolled at Merrillville. She has been welcomed with open arms by new head coach Amy Govert. Houston averaged 22.1 points, 13.2 rebounds and 5.1 blocks per game as a sophomore at Wallace.


ERICA HUMES* (6’0), G

VALPARAISO (UNDECIDED)

DEE DEE JERNIGAN* (5’10), G

EAST CHICAGO CENTRAL (PURDUE)


Erica Humes from Strempka GalleryShe played out of position at point guard last season out of necessity, but that has only made this already versatile player even more of a threat. At 6'0, Erica Humes can do it all for Valparaiso. She averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game, not a small feat considering Valpo's average offensive output was only 47.5 points per game. With teammate Cassie Kerns off at UConn this season, this Junior All-Star North Team member will have to contend with a great deal more defensive attention during her senior campaign, but we believe she will be more than up to the task. Photo courtesy of strempkagallery.com

Dee Dee Jernigan from Strempka GalleryDelaquese (Dee Dee) Jernigan is one of the best players to come out of NWI in some time. After a summer at the nation's top-talent tournaments, at the prestigious Nike camp and at the USA Basketball Youth Developmental Festival, Jernigan was a much sought after college recruit. Super quick and deadly on the dribble, her already considerable talents will be taken to new heights at Purdue. As a junior under head coach Ron Edmonds, she averaged 18.2 points, 10.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 2.8 steals per game during a 21-4 season. That performance earned her Junior All-Star Core Team status during the summer, together with numerous postseason all-state honors. Photo courtesy of strempkagallery.com


KYLEIGH JONES (5’8), G

ELWOOD (BALL STATE)

MELISSA LECHLITNER (5’7), G

SOUTH BEND ST. JOSEPH'S (NOTRE DAME)


Savvy and athletic, Jones took her game to new heights during her junior year. In a 20-4 season for Elwood, Jones averaged 20.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game. Her outstanding junior campaign garnered Jones Second Team All State status in the Louisville Courier-Journal and a spot on the Junior All Star Central Team. Although she might have been under the radar of a number of college coaches around the country, she did not escape the ever-discerning eye of nearby Ball State head coach Tracy Roller.

Melissa Lechlitner from the South Bend TribuneThis super point guard has been one of the top players in the state since her freshman year. A 2003-04 1st team All State selection by Hoosier Basketball Magazine, 2003-04 Warsaw Holiday Tournament All-Tournament Team, 2002-03 State Finals All-Tournament Team, Louisville Courier Journal All-State First Team, ICGSA All-State Second Team, South Bend Tribune All-Metro team. An Indiana Junior All-Star Core Team member this past summer. Averaged 15.4 points, 6.0 assist, 4.0 steals, and 4.4 rebounds per game. Will stay in her home town and play for the Muffet McGraw and the Fighting Irish.


SUSAN LESTER (6’1), F/C

PENDLETON HEIGHTS (BUTLER)

FAKHARA MALONE (5’3), G

EVANSVILLE MEMORIAL (PURDUE)


Susan Lester from IFBCGreat competitor who has a passion for the game. Very strong, she’s a beast on the boards. Can take it hard to the basket or pop the open jumper. She can even hit from long range. Quickness, size, and strength make her one of the state’s top players. A member of the Indiana Junior All-Star Core Team this past summer. Averaged 15.1 points and 6.4 rebounds last year.

Fakhara Malone from Scott LeatherlandWhen they say dynamite comes in small packages, they were talking about Malone. She may be small, but she has a very big presence on the floor. A tough defender with great quickness. Considered one of the top guards in the state. Excels on both offense and defense. Plays the game 100% all the time. An Indiana Junior All Star Core team member this past summer. Averaged 19.5 points a game last year for Coach Bruce Dockery. Photo courtesy of Game Pix Photography

 

BETH MARSHALL (5’5), G

HAMILTON SOUTHEASTERN (NORTHWESTERN)

AUDREY MC DONALD (5’8), G

KOKOMO (BALL STATE)


Beth Marshall from the Shelbyville NewsA true point guard who looks for the assist before scoring, but can also score if she needs to. She’s a real floor general, who is an extension of her coach on the floor. Last season as a junior, Marshall averaged 9.0 points, 5.0 assists, 2.1 steals and 3.0 rebounds per game, earning postseason honors of All Hoosier Crossroads Conference, All Hamilton County and AP All State Honorable Mention. Was named to the Junior All Stars Central Team.

Audrey McDonald from the Kokomo TribuneThe 5'8 combo guard entertained a myriad of offers before deciding to play for head coach Tracy Roller and the Ball State Lady Cardinals. As a junior, McDonald averaged 15.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game while leading the Kats to a 19-6 record under previous Kokomo head coach Chris Huppenthal. She was named All-North Central Conference two years in a row and played for the Junior All Star Central Team this past summer.


BRITTNEY MOORE* (6’3), F/C

MERRILLVILLE (XAVIER)

MARIA OLSTHOORN (6’1), F/C

CASTLE (INDIANA STATE)


Brittney Moore from Strempka GalleryWhat you don't realize until you first see this 6'3 super power in action in the paint is that, despite her size, Brittney Moore is pretty darn quick -- powerful quick. High school officials would be best to call a boy's game against Moore instead of a girl's game. Moore's future in college is where she will get the greatest opportunity to display her considerable talents, and we think Xavier is lucky to get her. As a junior, this All-Duneland Conference and Junior All Star North Team member averaged 10.6 points and 11.6 rebounds per game while helping her team to a 12-10 season. Photo courtesy of strempkagallery.com

Maria Olsthoorn from the Evansville Courier PressExcellent post player who will only get better on the college level. Can post up or score from the perimeter. Was a shoe-in for the Junior All Star team last season before an unfortunate knee injury midway into the season. She’s back and should be fully recovered. She’ll be a force to be reckoned with this year. Selected First Team All-Conference, Hoosier Basketball Magazine Second Team All-State, and APAll-State Honorable Mention last year. Invited to the Top 100 Workout. Led Castle in points, rebounds, blocked shots, steals and FG percentage. Averaged 17.9 points, and 8.6 rebounds, together with 41 blocked shots last year.


ALYSSA PITTMAN (5’8), G

ELKHART MEMORIAL (EASTERNMICHIGAN)

COURTNEY REED (5’9), G

NORTHFIELD (MIAMI OHIO)


Alyssa Pittman from the Elkhart TruthShe’s a smooth player who excels on both offense and defense. Has excellent court awareness. Very athletic slasher who proves to be a tough match-up for opponents. Averaged 17.8 points and 4.0 assists last year. A two-time All-Northern Lakes Conference First Team selection, Team MVP, two-time Sports Fest East All Star, and All Sectional. Helped win back-to-back Sectional Championships for Elkhart. She’s fourth in school career scoring heading into her senior year, and started every game since her freshman year.

Cortney Reed from the Wabash Plain DealerLast season, Reed led her 2A team to a 14-7 record under head coach Steve Desper. She averaged 17.2 points (.410 fgp), 5.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.9 steals per game, which was good enough to land her a spot on the North Junior All Star squad this past June. She did not disappoint, scoring a huge 19 points off the bench on 7-11 shooting (3 treys) against the Senior All-Stars in the North exhibition game at Pendleton Heights.


CHANELL RIDLEY (6’0), F

FORT WAYNE CONCORDIA (MIAMI OHIO)

JULIE SEISS (5’9), G

WARSAW (BUTLER)


Excellent player who will only get better on the college level. Can post up or score from the perimeter As a junior, Ridley was the leading scorer for the Cadets, averaging 14.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game, while shooting 44 percent from the field. Last season, she was named Street & Smith All-American Honorable Mention and All-City.

Julie Seiss from Strempka GalleryShe has been a starting point guard for the storied Tigers program for the past three years, and can put up the big numbers when necessary, as evidenced by her season high 34 points against Perry Meridian last December. The savvy guard was a member of the Indiana Junior All Stars North Team, and a All-Northern Lakes Conference selection last year. Averaged 17.2 points and 3.6 assist per game. Photo courtesy of strempkagallery.com


ERICA SIMPSON* (6’0), F

GARY WEST SIDE (ALABAMA-BIRMINGHAM)

AMANDA STULL (5’9) G

RUSHVILLE (COASTAL CAROLINA)


Erica Simpson from Strempka GallerySmooth and talented, Erica Simpson first made a name for herself as a sophomore when she had a coming out party of sorts at the Big-8 McCutcheon Holiday Tournament. Simpson will have to carry a great deal of the load for Gary West Side this year. She has no problems finding the hole (31 points against No. 8 South Bend Washington last season) and shows up when it counts (36 points in two Regional tournament games), so she is not adverse to the challenge of putting the Cougars on her shoulders for the upcoming season. Was an RRR All-Region 1st Team selection last year. As a junior, she averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while helping Gary West to a 23-5 season and first-time trip to the state finals. Photo courtesy of strempkagallery.com

Amanda Stull from the Rushville RepublicanA clutch, high-scoring guard that finished on fire last season, taking her team to a regional appearance despite the loss of a key backcourt teammate to injury near the end of the season.  She tallied 107 points in her team's three-game march to the sectional championship, including a Rushville record-setting 41 points in the sectional final against Connersville. A Junior All Star South team member, Stull also garnered honors that included Heritage Hills Conference Co-Player of the Year, AP All-State High Honorable Mention, and Louisville Courier-Journal Honorable Mention All-State.


MELANIE THORNTON (6’0), F

CARMEL  (BUTLER)

KELLY WATTS* (5’11), G/F

EAST CHICAGO CENTRAL (EASTERN MICHIGAN)


Melanie Thornton from IFBCGreat athlete with excellent all-around skills. When she takes it to the basket she’s going to score or get to the line. Fundamentally sound player with lots of potential. A team player with the ability to make her teammates better players. A member of the Indiana Junior All Star Central Team this past summer. Was All-Metropolitan Athletic Conference and All-County last season. Averaged 11.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assist last year. One of three top Indiana players to sign with Beth Couture and the Butler Lady Bulldogs.

Kelly Watts from Strempka GalleryWatts has quietly earned the respect of Cardinal opponents and the EC faithful with her work ethic and steady, reliable play. She is a blue collar player and a difference maker who simply does what is asked of her and is happy to see her team succeed. That attitude and her considerable talents should land her a fine Division I scholarship. As a junior, Watts averaged 13.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game while helping the Cardinals to a 21-4 record. Was a RRR All Region 1st Team selection last year. Photo courtesy of strempkagallery.com


KYLIE YORK (5’8), G

HAMILTON SOUTHEASTERN (NORTHERN ILLINOIS)

 

Kylie York from IFBCAn excellent shooter and a great defender. As a junior, York shot .480 from the floor, .850 form the line and hit .420 of her 3-point shots. She averaged 10.1 points per game, 3.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 steals per game. In addition to earning three varsity letters in basketball through her junior season, York also earned varsity letters in track as a freshman and softball as a junior. York was selected to the 2005 Top 100 Showcase and was selected to the 2004-2005 Who's Who in America for High School Athletes.

 

 

 

SUPER SENIOR 25 HONORABLE MENTION

From Northwest Indiana:

AMY BALCHAK 6’3, F/C, HOBART If she continues to improve she’ll be handful for Duneland Conference opponents this year. She averaged 8 points and 8 rebounds last year leading Hobart to a 13-10 record. Was an RRR All Region Honorable Mention selection last year. (UNDECIDED)

ANGIE BUSH 5’9, G, MORGAN TOWNSHIP - An excellent ball handler with the potential to play at the next level. She has the ability to score from anywhere on the floor.

Was an RRR All-Region 1st Team last season. Averaged 21.2 ppg and 7.2 rpg. (UNDECIDED)

NATALIE CHRISTENSON, 5’11, NORTH NEWTON - Another Christenson sister making some noise down south. Lots of potential. Should follow her sisters lead and make a big impression on the program before she leaves. Was an RRR All-Region 1st Team selection last year. (UNDECIDED)

MALLORY GORSKI, 5’5, G, SOUTH CENTRAL - This 5'5 dynamo made a name for herself in a big way during the post-season in 2004-05. Her exciting heroics lifted her team past No. 10 Argos in a one-point sectional championship win last February. In that game, she scored 39 points, dished 11 assists, nabbed 10 steals, and pulled in 7 rebounds. As a junior, she averaged 19.0 points, 5.0 assists and 5.0 steals per game.

Was an RRR All-Region 1st Team selection last year. Averaged 16.6 ppg and 12.7 rpg. (UNDECIDED)

 

KATIE KANE, 6'1, F/C, HIGHLAND - One of the most underrated seniors in the area, this blue collar frontcourt player has helped carry her team to a 36-11 record the past two years under head coach Mike Urban. Respected by LAC opponents more for her rebounding ability (6.2 rpg) and post defense (2.0 bpg), Kane will be called upon to be more offensive-minded this season. (NEBRASKA-OMAHA)

AMIEE MISHLER, 5’4, G, WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP Small but extremely quick with a great shooting touch. An MWC All- Tourney Team, All- Sectional Team, RRR All-Area Second Team, RRR Future Stars, PPC 2 time All Conference, Sectional Champs ‘03, Regional Champs ‘03, RRR All-Area First Team.

CENA NASILOSKI, 6’0, F/C, HAMMOND
An outstanding post player who didn’t get much notice at the beginning of last season.

Averaged 13.2 points and 10.1 rebounds per game. Was an RRR All-Region 1st Team selection last season. (UNDECIDED)

KELLY PELLER, 6’0, G/F, CHESTERTON - Led Chesterton to outstanding season this year, including an upset victory over state runner-up Gary West Side in the McCutcheon Holiday Tournament.

She could be a pleasant surprise for any college coach willing to sign her. A Junior All-Star North Team selection this past summer. Was an RRR All-Region 1st Team selection last year. (UNDECIDED)

 

HANNAH PLUMLEY, 5'8, G, CROWN POINT - Hard to believe that we omitted one of our own from this list earlier. (Kept thinking she was part of the class that graduated last year! Duh.) A heady, sharp-shooting guard who will take on a lead role for the Bulldogs this season. If Crown Point is successful this season, she will be a big reason why. Should have been on our RRR 4A-3A Honorable Mention list last season. (Another omission -- so sorry, Hannah!) She has the ability to play at the next level and will be a good get for any college program. (VALPARAISO)

JACKIE YERGA, 5’9, G/F, MUNSTER - Has been a force for the rejuvenated Lady Mustangs. Helped Munster to a 17-6 record and a share of the LAC Black Title.

GO HANNAH

Good picks!!
I have seen lester malone and stull play and they are all great players. Malone is very quick but Stull is the best all around player that I have saw in a long time.

by BBALL FAN | 28 Feb 2006 08:52 pm
THIS LIST IS GOOD AS I HAVE SEEN ALOT OF THESE GIRLS PLAY, IF NOT IN SEASON DURING AAU. I DO BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE PLAYERS FOR HUNTINGTON NORTH WHO WERE OVERLOOKED FROM AROUND THE STATE. ESPECIALLY WHEN LOOKING AT SOME OF THE NAMES MENTIONED. DID ANYONE WATCH THEM PLAY?

by Kbball | 26 Feb 2006 03:07 am
I got to see Kokomo play Washington today. They are a great team and Audrey McDonald was a true please to watch play. She is a great b-ball player. They should have won but it was an awesome game!

by mookie | 13 Jan 2006 10:32 pm
This is meant to be a list of the "best" 25 girls in the state regardless of class. Talent is talent, regarless of class. I am sure level of schedule was taken into account in some way.

As far as the voting, which coaches would you have vote? I hihgly doubt you can find enough a coaches who have seen all of the girls, being reasonably considered, to have a vote.

by Unfair | 21 Nov 2005 07:01 pm
If you are going to have class basketball then you should have allstars by class. How can you compare a player who has an easy schedule like some the players who are in Class A or AA to a player who has a schedule as hard as Class AAA or AAAA?

by Frustrated | 21 Nov 2005 06:59 pm
I think it is very frustrating in how the Junior All Stars, as well as the top 25 are chosen. I was at an event where several of the committee members that chose the girl's Junior All Stars were in attendance. I asked several of them if they had even seen some of the girls that were chosen or not chosen play last season, and most of them said no. They were purely chosen by word of mouth and statistics. I think that is unfair and it should be a coaches vote who have actually had the opportunity to see the girls in action.

by mookie | 20 Nov 2005 05:33 am
YOu also must remember there isn't much difference between a lower level, or in some cases a mid level, D-1 school and some lower level schools.
There are 2 NAIA perennial powers in NE INdiana, St Francis and Ind. Wesleyan that routinely compete with and beat some D-1 teams

by Bulldog fan | 15 Nov 2005 03:28 am
What, no Crown Point Bulldogs on the list? May will find a way, but it will be tough with no guard play

by bballfan00 | 14 Nov 2005 01:16 am
You may want to take Ashlee Roddy off the list from Eastern Hancock. She is out indefinitely due to disciplinary reasons.

Heyyyyy, I thought only one of us could be Central Indiana. I have been using that name on here for years. The person below is using my name on RRR. I think the list is great this year but I do wish Lori Whitaker from Bloomington South would have made the top 25. She has been an outstanding player and baller since I 1st saw her as a freshman. (I know-she was probably #26) All in all, great job with this year's list RRR.

There's already 27 D1 signees, or so I read last week on this site. There's only 25 spots on the first team, so obviously someone is going to get left off.

10 of the 25 listed are from central Indiana, so I'd say there's a pretty fair representation. Personally, I only see two kids that I would have liked to have seen bumped up to the 1st team, so I think RRR did a pretty darn good job.

I don't know how you could leave out any committed D1 player
Whitney Farris, TIFFANY FINKTON,STACIA SHEPHERD,LAUREN STURTEVANT,
How can you leave them out.
(all from central Indiana?)

"This class, by far, was the most difficult to pare down to just 25 players since we began this list in 1998."
How did you do it? What criteria did you use?
