 Links to the BOYS & GIRLS lists are below this introductory statement

        The files linked below are lists of Indiana high school basketball 1,000-point career scorers, as compiled by the Indiana Basketball Coaches Association. There are two lists attached, one for boys and one for girls. Both lists are updated through the conclusion of the 2023-24 season.

         The IBCA boys' list has players listed as far back as Don Shelton, a 1919 Crawfordsville graduate, with 1005 points. The girls' list contains three 1976 graduates as the inaugural members -- Rochelle "Shelly" Newell of Rochester (1,250 points), Judi Warren of Warsaw (1,232 points) and Pam Jones of Scottsburg (1,095 points). 

        The total boys' list currently contains 3,959 players at 1,000 points or more. The current girls' list contains 2,334 players with 1,000 points or more.

        For  both lists,  players with yellow shading and black type were active in the 2023-24 season and completed their career with 1,000 points or more; players with yellow shading and red type were active in 2023-24 and will be 2025 or 2026 graduates; and players with green shading and red type were active in 2023-24 and are future grads currently with 600 or more points on a "watch list" for the 2024-25 season.

        If a player played at more than one high school, the first school listed is the last school at which the player played. On the boys' list, for players from schools that no longer exist, a school name in parenthesis generally is the current school into which the closed school was consolidated. An example of this is: "Marion Pierce, Lewisville (Tri)."

        The IBCA began compiling a boys' list of 1,000-point scorers at the end of the 1979-80 season. Junior Mannies started an Indiana high school record book at that time, and his initial list of 1,000-point scorers included 357 players. Mannies compiled the list for two more years until passing away in 1983. Gene Milner took over the compilation of the boys' 1,000-point scorers list in 1982-83. Milner, currently the IBCA's annual record book editor and website coordinator, has overseen the boys' 1,000-Point Club listing for the past 41 years.

        The IBCA decided to compile a statewide girls' list of 1,000-point scorers in January 2022 when there was an inquiry for both boys' and girls' lists, and no such list was available at that time for girls.

        Literally hundreds of people have assisted in the compilation of both lists. Many thanks to all coaches, former coaches, athletic administrators, media members and various school, conference and county historians who have assisted in this effort.

        As much effort as we have put in, IBCA officials realize that both lists are incomplete. Also, both lists have some players where an exact total for some players may need to be clarified. Still, these are the best, most complete lists we have at this time. These lists will be updated as appropriate. The lists, of course, will be updated at least one time annually at the end of each season with the new players who reach the 1,000-point milestone in the given season.

        If anyone has information that can help us correct, update or add information for anyone, please email information to Pat McKee at

        The IBCA is releasing these lists again at this time so each list may be used a resource by the Indiana High School Athletic Association, the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, the Indiana High School Basketball Historical Society, media members from across the state, all IHSAA-member schools and conference, county or other groups that may be interested in them.
