Clark County’s Miss Basketball crowned Tuesday


One thing is guaranteed at Tuesday night’s All-Clark County high school girls basketball banquet: Bianca Quisenberry won’t be the winner.

The Tecumseh High School graduate — now playing her basketball at the University of Cincinnati — dominated the local basketball scene by claiming the last three Pam Evans Smith Miss Basketball awards. A new Miss Basketball will be crowned among 10 players named to the All-County team.

The banquet, held at Wittenberg University’s Shouvlin Center, started in 1989. The All-County team and Miss Basketball are selected by county coaches.

Southeastern has a county-leading six Miss Basketball awards, followed by Kenton Ridge with five. Tecumseh has four, Catholic Central and Northwestern with three each, Greenon and South with two each and Shawnee and North with one each.

“Consideration for the Pam Evans Smith Miss Basketball award also goes beyond pure statistics,” the award stipulates. “While performance and execution are important, the Pam Evans Smith Miss Basketball award recipient must truly be a leader. She must have the respect of coaches, the respect of her competitors, classroom achievement, and citizenship. Each girl has demonstrated not only talent and skill in basketball, but also in leadership, dedication, and concern for their team and community.”

The All-Clark County boys team, including Mr. Basketball, will be announced at a banquet on Thursday.
