The Chicago Tribune announced Monday that 2014 Indiana women’s basketball commit Tyra Buss is the winner of this year’s Illinois Ms. Basketball award.
Buss had a record-breaking junior year at Mt. Carmel, where she averaged 38.9 points, 6.1 steals, 3.2 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game. She scored 1,285 points this season and now holds most offensive records at the school. Buss, who has 3,431 points in three seasons, is expected to break the state’s career scoring record of 4,031 points sometime next season. Duke-bound senior forward Jabari Parker took home Illinois Mr. Basketball honors.
