WBCA Ms. Basketball

Since 1982 the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has awarded the most outstanding senior basketball player in the state the honor of Ms. Basketball. Mistie Bass won the award three consecutive years (2000-02), the only player in state history to be named Ms. Basketball multiple times, the award has been awarded to seniors-only since. Nominees and selection are completed by a committee of current WBCA Executive Board members. The award is sponsored by Dr. Dish.

Neenah’s Allie Ziebell has been named the 2024 Ms. Basketball award-winner by the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), sponsored by Dr. Dish.

Ziebell is a skilled and athletic guard who is a dominant scorer at all three levels. She can take her opponent off the dribble to get the hoop, pull up from mid-range, and is a sharpshooter from behind the arc. Allie also has excellent court vision and is an outstanding teammate. 

“It was a surreal feeling to be selected as Wisconsin's Ms. Basketball. I found out very unexpectedly before one of our games and I was so excited when I received the news from Coach Braunel,” explained Ziebell. 

She said it means a lot to be named Ms. Basketball because you are recognized amongst so many great players. 

Ziebell is averaging 26.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.7 steals per game with over 100 three-pointers made for coach Andy Braunel and the 23-5 Rockets. Allie is shooting 51.2 percent from the floor, 44.4 percent from three, and 88.8 percent from the free throw line. 

Coach Braunel explained the impact that Allie has made on Neenah’s program. 

“Allie has helped elevate our program to new heights. Her level of play, her dedication, and focus on being a good teammate has been an example for all levels of our program. She has helped take girls basketball in our area to new heights.” 

The 6-0 guard is fourth in girls’ basketball state history with 2,744 points, along with over 550 rebounds, 330 assists, and 250 steals in her career. Allie has led the Rockets to an 86-20 record and the program’s first WIAA State Tournament appearance since 2009. 

Ziebell was named a McDonald’s All-American, selected first-team WBCA All-State all four years, and is a two-time FVA Player of the Year. 

Allie, who had a long list of scholarship offers, is the second player in girls’ basketball state history to commit to UConn, joining 2023 Ms. Basketball KK Arnold (Germantown). 

Coach Braunel added that Allie is such a humble and down-to-earth person. 

“She cares deeply about her teammates, she cares about her program, and she truly wants all to succeed to do their best. It is this unique combination of her ultra-high level skill blended with her humility and selflessness that makes her just an amazing player and person. We all have been blessed to have her in this program, she has made all of us better!” 

The finalists for Ms. Basketball were Ziebell, Trista Fayta of Notre Dame, Gracie Grzesk of Notre Dame, Teagan Mallegni of McFarland, Kayl Petersen of Waupun, and Taylor Stremlow of Verona.
