Kianna Ibis, Omaha Benson
6-0 | Sr. | 21.2 PPG | 11.3 RPG
With the addition of 6-2 senior Simone Goods, the left-handed Ibis was able to move to the perimeter and play the forward spot she’ll like occupy at Arizona State next season. Ibis’ defense, a mainstay on Benson’s 2014 state championship team, was still prevalent as she blocked 29 shots and registered 38 steals in the 17 games she played before her season-ending ACL injury. This was Ibis’ second straight season as a first-team Super-Stater and the third time she’s been selected all-state.
Coach’s view: “The biggest improvement she made was the diversity in her game. Kianna was not just a post player and shot blocker this season, she was a multi-talented player who could play defense out on the floor, handle the ball against pressure and shoot medium and long-range jump shots as well as drive it to the basket.” — Omaha Benson co-coach Pat Holston.
