Spreen voted IndyStar Indiana Miss Basketball

Mar. 18—Chloe Spreen has earned the top individual award in Indiana high school girls basketball.

Spreen, a 5-10 guard from Bedford North Lawrence High School, has been named IndyStar Indiana Miss Basketball for 2024 in online voting of media and girls' varsity coaches conducted by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association and All-Star game director Mike Broughton.

The Miss Basketball result means Spreen will wear the No. 1 jersey for the Indiana All-Stars in their annual series with Kentucky. The Miss Basketball award goes to the top girls' basketball senior in the state. The Miss Basketball and Mr. Basketball awards are part of the IndyStar Indiana All-Star program that dates to 1939. The Miss Basketball award, along with the girls All-Stars, was added to the All-Star program in 1976.

Spreen earned the girls' top honor after being named on 117 ballots submitted to Broughton in balloting that ran from Feb. 20-29. Jordyn Poole of Fort Wayne Snider was runner-up with 71 votes. Reagan Wilson of Noblesville placed third with 57 votes followed by Juliann Woodard of Jennings County with 33 votes and Faith Wiseman of Indian Creek with 14 votes. There were 341 votes cast overall.

Spreen is the third Miss Basketball winner in BNL history, joining Marla Inman in 1992 and Jorie Allen in 2019. She also is the fourth Bedford player to wear No. 1, with Damon Bailey being voted Mr. Basketball in 1990.

A University of Alabama recruit, Spreen averaged 20.4 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 steals in leading Bedford North Lawrence to a 20-5 season and a 13th consecutive sectional championship. That came after a junior season where she averaged 19.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.7 steals in keying the Lady Stars to 27-3 campaign that include the 2023 Class 4A state championship.

For her career, Spreen totaled 1,869 points, 633 rebounds, 259 assists and 200 steals while BNL amassed an aggregate record of 93-14 over her four seasons (22-3, 24-3, 27-3 and 20-5). She stands second on the BNL all-time list in girls' basketball scoring with Jorie Allen is the leader with 1,930 points. Spreen also is a four-time IBCA All-State selection, including a three-time IBCA Supreme 15 honoree. She was a 2023 Associated Press first-team All-State pick, and she was a 2024 McDonald's All-American nominee. In addition, she was a four-time all-Hoosier Hills Conference selection.
