Ohio State women's hoops signee Kierstan Bell made history on Thursday, becoming the first three-time recipient of the Ohio Ms. Basketball award.
Before Bell, there were only two-time winners of the award, the most recent being former Ohio State guard Ameryst Alston. The third puts Bell in elite company, joining only LeBron James as the only three-time winners of Ohio’s top high school basketball award.
“I give it all to God,” Bell said in a release. “God put me on this earth for a reason. He gave me a good talent and a gift, so I owe it back. I put it all on the floor and tried to use that gift.”
Bell finished this season averaging 27.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, 4.4 blocks, 3.8 steals and 3.0 assists, and claimed over 75 school, county and state records throughout her career.
