The Indianapolis Star has named Logansport's Whitney Jennings the 2014 Indiana Miss Basketball.

The newspaper announced Wednesday the 5-foot-5 point guard received 177 of the 332 votes cast for the award. Maura Muensterman of Evansville Mater Dei finished second with 97 votes. No one else had more than 10 votes.

Jennings led the state in scoring this season at 32 points per game. The Iowa recruit also averaged eight rebounds, 7.4 assists and five steals per game as Logansport (24-3) reached the Class 4A semistate before losing to Penn. She's also the 2013-14 Gatorade Indiana girls basketball player of the year.

Jennings has averaged at least 23.6 points per game each of her four high school seasons to finish fifth on the all-time state scoring list with 2,641 points.
