Raven Johnson named 2020-21 HIGHSCORE Georgia High School Girls Basketball Player of the Year - HIGHSCORE
Raven Johnson named 2020-21 MaxPreps Georgia High School Girls Basketball Player of the Year
Each year since 2006, MaxPreps has recognized outstanding performers in high school basketball. America's source for high school sports continues the tradition to close out the 2020-21 season by naming the top player in each state. Selections are based on team success and individual excellence, in addition to local and state accolades.

Raven Johnson of Westlake (Atlanta) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps Georgia High School Girls Basketball Player of the Year. The 5-foot-7 senior guard led the Lions to the AAAAAA state championship and a perfect 20-0 record.

Westlake is ranked No. 2 in this week's MaxPreps Top 25 and will have a chance to improve upon that lofty standing at will GEICO Nationals in Fort Myers, Fla., April 2-3.

Johnson played just 22 minutes a game this season as Westlake dominated many games but still averaged 15.1 points, 5.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 3.7 steals a game. She also had a 3.2 assist/turnover ratio as the point guard for one of the top teams in the country.

Headed to South Carolina next season, Johnson is a McDonald's All-American and is regarded as the No. 2 prospect in the Class of 2021 by ESPN Hoopgurlz.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team.
High school basketball: Teams with most championships - HIGHSCORE
High school basketball: Teams with most championships
DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.) leads our list of high school basketball programs with the most championships, although the Stags don't exactly play for a title at the state level. DeMatha is one of 13 West Catholic Athletic Conference members, traditionally one of the toughest leagues in the country. Despite playing against some of the top teams on the East Coast, DeMatha has managed to claim 41 WCAC championships and that type of success can't be overlooked.

The Stags have dominated WCAC play, winning 41 of the 60 conference championships including a string of 22 of 25 titles between 1961 and 1985 under legendary coach Morgan Wootten.

DeMatha leads Booker T. Washington (Tulsa, Okla.), which had 33 state championships over the course of two different eras. Playing in the segregation era, Booker T. Washington won 17 state championships in the Oklahoma Interscholastic Athletic Association. After integration, the Hornets won another 16 state titles in the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Athletic Association.

Tied for third are William Penn Charter (Philadelphia) and Madison-Ridgeland (Madison, Miss.). Like DeMatha, Penn Charter and MRA do not play for championships in the state association postseason tournaments. Penn Charter is a member of the Inter-Academic Conference in the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania. Started in 1887, the Inter-AC is one of the oldest continuing conferences in the nation, but it does not play in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Association.

Likewise, Madison-Ridgeland is not a member of the Mississippi High Schools Activities Association, but instead plays in the MidSouth Association of Independent Schools (MAIS), which was formed in 1968. The Patriots have won 32 class championships in the MAIS and 13 overall titles. The overall championship is determined by a tournament involving all of the class tournament finalists. Longtime coach Richard Duease, the winningest coach in Mississippi history, has led the Patriots to all their state titles.

The No. 5 team on the list is St. Anthony (Jersey City, N.J.), which won 27 state championships, 26 of them under longtime coach Bob Hurley.

The following list includes a Top 25 along with a listing of all other teams known to have won at least 10 championships. Aside from state associations, independent school associations are also included. Champions lists for all independent schools association were not available. Any additions or corrects, contact Kevin Askeland at [email protected] Sources for the list include the NFHS record book, state association record books.
DeMatha has won the most boys basketball titles, grabbing 41 WCAC crowns. The 2015-16 team was one squad that helped that total.

Final HIGHSCORE Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings - HIGHSCORE
Final MaxPreps Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings
For the second time in three seasons, the Ironmen of Don Bosco Prep are national champions.

The New Jersey powerhouse finishes the season ranked No. 1 in the Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings presented by the Army National Guard.

With victories over Mission Viejo, St. Edward and Florida Class 7A state champion Manatee, Don Bosco Prep handled a national schedule with relative ease in addition to dominating competition in the Garden State.

Trinity finished a close second after romping through its challenging schedule and putting forth what many consider the greatest team in state history.

Armwood, which has victories over No. 9 Plant, No. 12 Bishop Gorman and No. 17 Central, ends the season at No. 3.

Best girls high school basketball player in all 50 states - HIGHSCORE
Best girls high school basketball player in all 50 states
The end of November historically means it's time to look toward the upcoming high school basketball season. Yet, plenty of questions surround the start of the high school basketball season as COVID-19 numbers spike across the country.

Still, a number of states have already forged ahead with their hardwood schedules while many more plan to tip-off shortly.

MaxPreps is gearing up for games amid the uncertain time in the country. We've already dropped our preseason MaxPrep Top 25 rankings, and earlier this week announced the top high school basketball team in all 50 states. Today, we take a look at the individuals who stand out in each state.

Top stars Azzi Fudd, Saniya Rivers, Jersey Wolfenbarger and Aaliyah Moore are among the headliners, with plenty of talent spread throughout the country.

Read on to see who took home the top spot in your state.
Jersey Wolfenbarger, Northside
File photo by Michael Woods
Jersey Wolfenbarger, Northside
Sara Puckett, Sr., Muscle Shoals
A 6-foot-2 forward who's solid inside and out, Puckett is just as comfortable in transition as she is in the half-court. She'll take her all-around game to Tennessee next year.

Sayvia Sellers, So., Anchorage Christian (Anchorage)
An athletic point guard who can score at the rim or from the perimeter, Sellers runs the show for Alaska's top team. Expect college coaches to figure out how to fly to Anchorage sooner rather than later.

Jersey Wolfenbarger, Sr., Northside (Fort Smith)
One of the top players in the country, a 6-5 guard who can distribute and score — and who will make Arkansas a lot better when she arrives next year.

Jennah Isai, Jr., Valley Vista (Surprise)

A tough, physical 6-0 combo guard who can not only get her own shots, but makes everyone around her better. She's a big reason Valley Vista starts the season in the MaxPreps Top 25.

Juju Watkins, So., Windward (Los Angeles)

You'd think that a state as big as California would have some outstanding seniors — and it does — but the 6-0 sophomore is the complete package, and the Golden State's best heading into 2020-21.

Allie Palmieri, Sr., Greens Farms Academy (Greens Farms)

She averaged 24.2 points and 8 rebounds last year, which made it easy for Boston College to decide to sign the 5-9 guard.

Lauren Betts, Jr., Grandview (Aurora)

At 6-7, it's not surprising that Betts is a rim protector, but she can get up and down the court as well. And in an age of 3-point specialists, she's a force on the block.

District of Columbia
Azzi Fudd, Sr., St. John's (Washington, D.C.)

Fudd can do it all at both ends of the floor, which is why she's everyone's preseason pick as Player of the Year, and the prize recruit for Geno Auriemma and UConn.

India Johnston, Sr., Caravel (Bear)

The athletic, aggressive 5-8 point guard, a Towson State signee, is too much for the rest of the Diamond State to handle.

O' Mariah Gordon, Sr., Braden River (Bradenton)

Think Allen Iverson, but more willing to give the ball up, and you've got a mental picture of the 5-5 Florida State signee.

Raven Johnson, Sr., Westlake (Atlanta)

If you like winning, you like Johnson, who will do whatever it takes — score, defend, pass — to get the W. Dawn Staley and South Carolina are excited to have her for next season.

Lily Lefotu Wahinekapu, Jr., 'Iolani (Honolulu)

Wahinekapu is another in a long line of tough, talented Hawaii guards who make it clear there's plenty of talent in the middle of the Pacific.

Naya Ojukwu, Jr., Mountain View (Meridian)

Meridian went 29-4 last year, and Ojukwu, a 6-1 athletic power forward who controls the paint, was a big reason why.

Greta Kampschroeder, Sr., Naperville North (Naperville)

A consummate scoring guard who can dish when needed, Kampschroeder will take her all-around game to Oregon State next year.

Ayanna Patterson, Jr., Homestead (Fort Wayne)

Homestead was 29-2 last year, and the 6-2 Patterson — who adds a mid-range jumper to her heavy lifting around the basket — looks to keep the Spartans in Indiana's upper echelon again this season.

Ayanna Patterson, Homestead
Grace Larkins, Sr., Southeast Polk (Pleasant Hill)

Larkins is a feisty, attacking guard who led Southeast Polk to a 19-5 record last season — and she'll play for South Dakota in 2021-22.

Payton Verhulst, Sr., Bishop Miege (Shawnee Mission)

She's smooth, skilled and versatile, and was a major contributor to Bishop Miege's 21-2 record last year. She'll play for Louisville next season.

Brooklyn Miles, Sr., Franklin County (Frankfort)

An athletic point guard who attacks the basket — even if she is only 5-6 — Miles will play for Tennessee in 2021-22.

Mikaylah Williams, So., Parkway (Bossier City)

Just a sophomore, scouts consider Williams college-ready right now. She averaged 20 points and nine rebounds a game as a freshman for a 24-win team, so clearly her name is one to remember.

Emily Archibald, Sr., Kennebunk

A 6-2 power forward, Archibald averaged 13.5 rebounds a game to go along 20.0 points and 3.5 assists, so it's not a surprise Providence snapped her up.

Caroline Ducharme, Sr., Noble & Greenough (Dedham)

A 6-2 wing who can shoot is special, but Ducharme has an all-around game to go along with the sweet stroke. She'll play for UConn next season.

Saylor Poffenbarger, Sr., Middletown

At 6-2, Poffenbarger is a guard, not a post, and she's a shooting guard at that. She's also a solid all-around player who will join a loaded UConn freshman class next year.

Damiya Hagemann, Sr., Edison Academy (Detroit)

Edison has emerged as one of the top teams in the country the last few seasons, and it's no coincidence that the 5-8 Hegemann's arrival to play the point occurred at the same time. She'll play for Michigan State.

Adalia McKenzie, Sr., Park Center (Brooklyn Park)

McKenzie is proof there's more to Minnesota basketball than Hopkins, as the Illinois signee averaged 31 points and 11 rebounds a game for 24-5 Park Center.

Bella Fontleroy, Jr., Kickapoo (Springfield)

A 6-1 wing, Fontleroy can get to the rim and finish in the mid-range, but is especially effective in transition.

Debreasha Powe, Jr., Meridian

Meridian went 29-2 last year, thanks in great part to Powe, a 6-0 wing who uses her athleticism to attack the basket.

Mya Hansen, Jr., Billings Central Catholic (Billings)

A polished lead guard who can shoot it, Hansen led Billings Central to a 21-2 record, and has already committed to the Lady Griz of Montana.

North Carolina
Saniya Rivers, Sr., Ashley (Wilmington)

Rivers' high school stats match her elite ranking — 25.0 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 6.3 steals per game — which is why Dawn Staley is ecstatic to have her signed with South Carolina.

North Dakota
Logan Nissley, So., Century (Bismarck)

Nissley does it all for Century, which went 21-4 last year. The 5-10 combo guard can pass, score and rebound, and has three more years to bedevil opposing teams in North Dakota.

Allison Weidner, Sr., St. Francis (Humphrey)

An explosive slasher who plays hard, Weidner is the engine that drives St. Francis (25-3 last year) — and the 5-9 guard will bring the same package to Nebraska next season.

New Hampshire
Isabella King, Sr., Bedford

King, a 5-8 guard, not only is a shooter, she's also a rebounder — and the combination of skills is one reason she's signed with Bucknell.

New Jersey
Olivia Miles, Sr. Blair Academy (Blairstown)

Many consider Miles the USA Basketball point guard of the future, as she shines at every level of competition (club, high school, USA Basketball). Notre Dame looks for that trend to continue in college basketball next year.

New Mexico
Viane Cumber, Sr. Sandia (Albuquerque)

Cumber averaged 22.4 points, 10.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists for 21-5 Sandia last year, but her college destination is unclear after she decommitted from Texas Tech.

Aaliyah Gayles, Jr., Spring Valley (Las Vegas)

Gayles is that unusual point guard who not only can score and dish, but also rebounds (6.4 a game last year for a good Spring Valley team). Given her size (5-8) and athleticism, look for more of the same this season.

New York
Sonia Citron, Sr., Ursuline (New Rochelle)

Citron doesn't dazzle, she just does everything really well — and at 6-1, she's not only a stalwart for USA Basketball youth teams, she's expected to step right in at Notre Dame next year.

KK Bransford, Jr., Mount Notre Dame (Cincinnati)

At 5-10, Bransford doesn't profile as a power player, but that's exactly who she is. She uses her strength and physicality to get to the rim, and is pretty much unstoppable at the high school level.

Aaliyah Moore, Sr., Moore

No, they didn't name the high school after her, but Aaliyah Moore has definitely made an impression with her size (6-2) and physical play around the rim. She'll go to Texas next year.

Audrey Roden, Sr., West Linn

Roden does a lot of things well, and plays bigger than her 5-8 size would suggest, which adds rebounding to her ability to score (17.2 ppg), pass and defend. She's committed to Nevada.
Audrey Roden, West Linn
File photo by Mark Jones
Audrey Roden, West Linn
Aislin Malcolm, Jr., Chartiers Valley (Bridgeville)

Malcolm has the usual statistical profile for players on this list, but there's one fact that sets her apart: She has not lost a game in her high school career.

Rhode Island
Amaya Dowdy, Sr., St. Raphael Academy (Pawtucket)

Dowdy is a physical power forward who gets a lot done in the paint, but she's also versatile enough to make plays on the perimeter. She will play for UMass-Lowell next season.

South Carolina
Milaysia Fulwiley, So., Keenan (Columbia)

Fulwiley's dazzling numbers as a freshman — 26.4 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 6.3 apg, 6.1 spg — are impressive, and she passes the eye test with flying colors as well. She's one of the top recruits in the country in the Class of 2023.

South Dakota
Ndjakalenga Mwenentanda, Jr., Washington (Sioux Falls)

The game is as long as the name, as Mwenentanda uses her 6-1 size to attack the rim, and her athleticism to make an impact all over the floor.

Denae Fritz, Sr., Maryville

The 5-11 wing averaged 21 points and 11 rebounds a game last season, but her intensity and versatility add even more value. She'll play for Iowa State next season.

Rori Harmon, Sr., Cypress Creek (Houston)

Harmon can shoot (38 percent from 3-point distance), score (15.6 ppg), pass (5.2 apg) and at 5-8, rebound (5.6 rpg). She's committed to Texas.

Timea Gardiner, Jr., Fremont (Plain City)

At 6-2, Gardiner is a force inside, delivering 14.7 ppg and 6.7 rpg last year. But even more impressive for a post (or any other position) was her 87 percent from the free-throw line.

Catherine Gilwee, Sr., Champlain Valley Union (Hinesburg)

A 5-6 point guard, Gilwee ran the show for unbeaten Champlain Valley Union last season, and added 3-point marksmanship as well. She'll play for Vermont next year.

Aziaha James, Sr., Princess Anne (Virginia Beach)

James did it all for powerhouse Princess Anne last year — 18.7 ppg, 8.7 rpg, 4.7 spg — and North Carolina State will be looking for more of the same in 2021-22.

Talia Von Oelhoffen, Sr., Chiawana (Pasco)

Von Oelhoffen, who committed to Oregon State after averaging 26.2 ppg last year, has athleticism in her genes: Her father Kimo played in the NFL for 14 years.

West Virginia
Dionna Gray, Jr., Huntington

Gray transferred from St. Joseph Central, a nationally ranked team last year, and immediately upgraded the Huntington program. The 5-3 floor general is quick, active, athletic and has a high basketball IQ.

Maty Wilke, Sr., Beaver Dam

The best player on the state's perennial powerhouse, Wilke has a smooth jumper but also is fine with seeking out contact. She's committed to Wisconsin.

Brenli Jenkins, Jr., Rock Springs

At 5-7, Jenkins is a point guard who can handle, shoot and get to the rim, which gives opponents few options. She's also a solid defender, which just adds to the package.
High school basketball: Lonzo Ball leads list of players with most triple-doubles since 2014 - HIGHSCORE
High school basketball: Lonzo Ball leads list of players with most triple-doubles since 2014
Russell Westbrook set a NBA record Monday when he recorded a triple-double in a loss to Atlanta. The 182nd triple-double of his career, the Washington Wizards guard passed Oscar Robertson on the list for the most triple-doubles in NBA history.

Also on the floor last night was Daniel Gafford, a first-year center out of Arkansas who played high school basketball at El Dorado (Ark.). He finished the game with 2 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assist. Naturally, that leads to the question is, which of the two players – Westbrook or Gafford – had more triple-doubles their senior year of high school?

The answer, of course, is Gafford, who posted 11 triple-doubles in 2017 at El Dorado. All of his 11 triple-doubles were via points/rebounds/blocked shots. Westbrook, who averaged 25 points per game as a senior at Leuzinger (Lawndale, Calif.), reportedly had 14 double-doubles, but there is no mention of triple-doubles.

Gafford's 11 triple-doubles made our list of prep players who have accomplished the feat most often over the past eight years.

Westbrook's record prompted a check of the MaxPreps leaderboards to see what players have racked up the most triple-doubles. MaxPreps has tracked the stat (for those players who have complete stats on the site) since the 2013-14 season. While career triple-doubles are not necessarily available, the MaxPreps double-doubles tool allows fans to track players who have the most double-doubles, triple-doubles and quadruple-doubles in a season.

Lonzo Ball's 25 triple-doubles as a senior led Chino Hills to state and national titles.
Current New Orleans Pelican guard Lonzo Ball leads the list with 25 triple-doubles during Chino Hills' 2015-16 season when MaxPreps ranked the team No. 1 in the nation. Ball also had a quadruple-double during the season and finished with an average of 23.9 points, 11.3 rebounds, 11.5 assists per game. Ball's career triple-doubles are not available.

Like Gafford, five of the players make the list for double-figures in points, rebounds and blocked shots. A total of six players averaged a triple-double for the season and one player, Reece Beekman of Scotlandville (Baton Rouge, La.), makes the list twice.

Beekman, coming off a promising freshman campaign at the University of Virginia, is one of several players on the list who have gone on to excel at the next level. Tilquan Rucker led all junior college players in scoring at 31.9 points per game in 2020. Theo Akwuba was the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2021 while at the University of Louisiana.

In addition to Ball and Gafford, Mitchell Robinson of Chalmette (La.) is also in the NBA as a member of the New York Knicks. Travis Jay of Madison County (Madison, Fla.) has gone a different route. He is a member of the Florida State football team.

Unfortunately MaxPreps doesn't have statistics for some of the NBA's all-time triple-double standouts like Westbrook, Robertson, Magic Johnson and Jason Kidd.

Kidd averaged 25 points, 10 assists, 7 rebounds and 7 steals as a senior while leading St. Joseph's (Alameda, Calif.) to the second of back-to-back championships in 1992. He finished his career as the state's all-time leader in assists and steals, according to the Cal-Hi Sports Record Book. He is known to have close to a quadruple-double in a win over Bishop O'Dowd that year, getting 30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and 8 steals.

Robertson's rebound and assist totals are unavailable as scoring totals were usually the only numbers reported by the media in 1956. Johnson, meanwhile, averaged 25.8 points per game as a senior on an Everett (Lansing, Mich.) team that won the 1977 Michigan state championship. According to the Lansing State Journal, Johnson averaged 17 rebounds and 9 assists per game as a senior.
