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.

Wow, great catch for IU’s new Women’s Basketball Coach. This young lady looks like a star. Coaching does make a difference!

Of course Buss is Miss basketball in Illinois!! There was no other choice. There have been people on this site in the past that are Buss haters, so to speak. Just wait until this girl shows up on campus and proves that she is nearly impossible to guard. Why some people continue to knock this girl is beyond me? If those who vote for Miss Basketball in the state of Illinois who have seen this girl play all year long say she is their best player, who are you to continue to deny her ability as a great player? If you have seen this girl play, you would be a believer! The future looks incredibly bright! With next year’s highly ranked incoming class and Buss and Muensterman coming in the following year, things will change dramatically in Bloomington for women’s basketball! Go Hoosiers!!

Tyra is amazing and will be in the WNBA one day. Her work ethic and skill level will probably make her the greatest lady hoosier of all time by the time she graduates from IU. Do yourself a favor and follow her on twitter.

MikeC, there are pathetic losers everywhere, and some of them gravitate to blogs like this one. There are people who are so miserable, the only thing they can do is try to criticize other people. And the lowest of the low are those people who try to damage the reputation of a teenage girl or other children. You just have to ignore them, which is really their worst fear.

What’s not to like about Tyra Buss? Her numbers are certainly impressive. Since she has accomplished that in a state that has more than twice the population of Indiana, which means a lot more competition in girl’s basketball, I’d say she has established herself as a star. You don’t do what she has done with talent and a lot of hard work. For a person to try to diminish her accomplishment is an indication of idiocy or other mental illness.

Congrats to Tyra on the award. Always wondered why more players similar to her throughout the years have not come to IU to play. Seems like she will get plenty of playing time, most likely be the star of the team, play against strong competition, help IU win a ton of games, play in Assembly Hall, and be on tv quite a bit. Should get plenty of press as a result which will help her on her way to the WNBA. Seems like others would have figured that out sooner. Her commitment and subsequent playing at IU should elevate IU to another level in women’s basketball. This will then attract other high profile players to the program.

Wow how lucky is Indiana on getting Tyra what a great player. I am looking forward to her dominating the Big Ten and shattering all scoring records.
