Tyra Buss named NHSCA National Player of the Year

Tyra Buss can add another award to her showcase.

The National High School Coaches Association named Buss, an incoming IU women’s basketball freshman, its 2014 National Player of the Year on Thursday.

Among her many accolades, Buss is also Illinois’ reigning Gatorade Player of the Year and a Parade All-American. She finished her well-documented high school run at Mt. Carmel with a state record 4,897 career points.

And while touching on the women’s basketball program, I’ll note that we do not have any new updates on the coaching search. This, however, could change at any moment over the next few days. Stay tuned.
