Below are results of the IBCA girls' basketball preseason poll for the 2023-24 season. The IBCA poll is a "non-class" poll, where teams are voted to a Top 20 regardless of school classification.
There are 20 panelists who vote for the poll -- one voter each from the 16 regionals; three at-large voters (one each from IHSAA Districts 1, 2 and 3); and the committee chairman (Doug Springer of Northridge).
Other committee panelists include Kristi Ulrich of Penn, Andy Maguire of Zionsville, Curt Benge of Plainfield and Tyler Choate of Evansville North in Class 4A; Darian Patton-Straughter of Highland, Eric Thornton of Norwell, Kaley May of Danville and Adam Dennis of Madison in Class 3A; Tony Scheub of Andrean, Justin Jordan of Whitko, Mark Harper of Parke Heritage and Jared Rehmel of Linton-Stockton in Class 2A; and Rick Budka of Morgan Township, Sarah Black of Union City, Jason West of Southwestern (Shelby) and Marty Niehaus of Springs Valley in Class A.
The at-large committee members are Rod Parker of Homestead in District 1, DeeAnn Ramey of North Central in District 2 and Kevin Moore of East Central in District 3.
This poll will be released starting today (Oct. 29, 2023) and on Sundays throughout the 2023-24 Indiana high school girls' basketball season. The final poll for the season will be on Jan. 28, 2024, the Sunday following the completion of regular-season games.
