After weeks of gathering data, reaching out to all area coaches and considering other criteria, the Joe Insider crew finalized its St. Joseph County Girls Basketball Elite Team for the 2017-18 season. We picked what we thought were the top players from this past winter. Now it’s up to the fans to vote for a Player of the Year.
