Two sessions of the 34th annual Top 60 Senior Workout will be hosted by Hoosier Basketball Magazine in conjunction with the IHSAA and the IBCA on Sunday, March 15th on the campus of Marian University in Indianapolis.

Three other outstanding Indiana girls’ high school coaches from the IBCA have been selected to join the 2015 Top 60 staff ‹ Eric Kundich (East Chicago Central), Brittany Maners (Evansville Central) and Casey Pohlenz (Richmond).
