Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Girls Top 60 Senior Workout will be held at Beech Grove High School in Indianapolis on Sunday, March 7, 2021.
Special thanks to Garret Daniel, Athletic Director and Kristin Raker, Girls Basketball Coach for hosting this upcoming annual event.
During the spring of 2021, Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Girls Top 60 Senior Workout will celebrate its 40th year as an annual event to recognize the top players in the graduating class of girls basketball for the state of Indiana.
The purpose of the Top 60 Workout is three-fold:
To enable 60 of the top graduating seniors to meet and compete and represent the entire state
To offer significant exposure in front of numerous college coaches in attendance
To provide Indiana-Kentucky All-Star officials from the IBCA an opportunity to view the top seniors who had already received votes on their official All-Star ballot.

HOOSIER BASKETBALL MAGAZINE TABS TOP 60 SENIOR GIRLS
Below is the list of Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60 senior girls’ basketball players for 2020-21 as compiled by Hoosier Basketball Magazine. These girls were selected from approximately 1,400 senior players statewide. Statistical evaluation, game observation and statewide research were conducted during the season and throughout the state tournament to determine Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 60.
Two sessions of the 40th annual Top 60 Senior Workout will be hosted by Hoosier Basketball Magazine in conjunction with the IHSAA and the IBCA on Sunday, March 7th at Beech Grove High School in Indianapolis (5330 Hornet Avenue in Beech Grove).
Half of the Top 60 girls, primarily from northern and southern Indiana, will participate in the first session (1:00-3:00 pm EST). The remaining players, primarily from central Indiana, will compete during the second session (3:30-5:30 pm EST).
The Top 60 Senior Workout includes the state’s top two scorers— Courtney Blakely, Hammond Noll (31.7 ppg) and Ariana Wiggins, Heritage Christian (27.6)— along with 11 other senior standouts who averaged more than 20 ppg.
