OSSIAN, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Norwell senior and basketball all-star Jessica Rupright is named this year's Indianapolis Star Indiana Miss Basketball.

After receiving 41 of 206 votes by media representatives and coaches Rupright was elected as Indiana’s Miss Basketball.

The 6’2” post player plans to take her natural talents to Miami of Ohio after her high school graduation.
