She hit a national-record 17 three-pointers in one game, scoring a career-high 51 points. She helped lead the Aces to their second All "A" state championship in three years, winning MVP both times.

Kyvin Goodin-Rogers

The 6-1 forward combined with Epps to lead Marion County to a perfect-season state championship. The daughter of a former Mr. Basketball, Tick Rogers, she is a repeat first-teamer.

Goodin-Rogers averaged 12.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 3.1 steals a game as a senior. She will join Epps at the University of Kentucky.

A 6-0 senior for Manual, Styles helped the Crimsons to a State championship in 2012 and a Final Four appearance this year.

A Xavier signee, Styles averaged 10.7 points and 7.2 rebounds a game for the 7th Region champions.Oliva Voskuhl

Voskuhl led Notre Dame to a State runner-up finish in soccer last November as the Pandas' goalkeeper, then helped Notre Dame's basketball team to a runner-up finish in March.

A 5-10 senior who has signed to play basketball for Cleveland State, Voskuhl averaged 17 points, 6.6 rebounds and shot 47 percent from the floor for the 9th Region champions.

Larryn Brooks

A 5-5 senior point guard who will play for Indiana University next season, Brooks earned MVP honors as Madison Central won its second 11th Region title in three years and second-ever trip to the State Tournament.

Brooks averaged 19.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and three steals a game, shooting 41 percent from three-point range, 49 percent from the field and 84 percent at the free-throw line.

She scored a season-high 35 points against Bryan Station, 31 in the 11th Region finals against Scott County.

She's a Kentucky Junior All-Star.

Ivy Brown

A 6-2 junior, Brown fueled LaRue County's first-ever appearance in the 5th Region finals, where eventual state champ Marion County prevailed.
