Georgia high school girls basketball star Raven Johnson to play against the boys at Allen Iverson Roundball Classic
While other high school basketball all-star games have gone by the wayside this spring due to the ongoing pandemic, the Allen Iverson Roundball Classic is moving forward. The contest will be played May 8 at Bartlett High School just outside of Memphis, Tenn., with former NBA standouts Matt Barnes, Stephen Jackson, Rasheed Wallace and Bonzi Wells serving as coaches.

Among the storylines will be Atlanta girls basketball star Raven Johnson stepping on the floor to compete with the best boys players in the country. The 5-foot-8 point guard has led Westlake to back-to-back unbeaten state championship seasons and is headed to South Carolina to play for head coach Dawn Staley next year.

MaxPreps National Player of the Year candidates TyTy Washington and Chet Holmgren are among the other headliners expected to compete.

Complete rosters are included below. For more information and tickets, visit IversonClassic.com.

High school girls basketball: Longest all-time winning streaks - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball: Longest all-time winning streaks
The past two seasons have seen the end of some of the more amazing winning streaks in girls high school basketball history. Yet, the most amazing part might be that none of them even came close to breaking the overall national record.

Central Plains (Claflin, Kan.) had its streak of 138 wins end last December while Martins Mill (Ben Wheeler, Texas) had a streak of 116 wins end last winter. Strafford (Mo.) had a streak of 123 wins end in 2019. However, none of them came within 80 wins of the all-time record of 218, set by Baskin (La.) between 1947 and 1953. Even more incredible, following the loss that ended its streak, Baskin won 71 more games. That's a mark of 289-1.

MaxPreps has put together a list of girls basketball win streaks of 50 or more games. While boys basketball has just seven streaks of 100 or more games, girls basketball has 34. The team with the longest current list is Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.), which stands at 74.

The list for consecutive wins includes all games, not just regular season or league wins. If there are any corrections or additions to the list, please e-mail Kevin Askeland at [email protected]

Sources for the list include the NFHS record book, luckyshow.org website by Paul Luchter, state association websites, Cal-Hi Sports Almanac by Mark and Nelson Tennis, MaxPreps team pages and research via newspapers.com.

High school baseball: Greatest team in all 50 states - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Greatest team in all 50 states
What do the 1996 Westminster Christian (Miami), the 2006 The Woodlands (Texas) and the 1958 Fresno high school baseball teams all have in common? They all have been selected by MaxPreps as the greatest high school baseball team of all-time from their respective states.

Westminster Christian was ranked No. 1 in the nation by several publications and had seven all-state players and two MLB draft picks. The Woodlands team had state Player of the Year Kyle Drabek on the mound and was also ranked No. 1 in the country. Fresno, meanwhile, shut out 15 opponents and has also been regarded by Cal-Hi Sports as the state's best team ever.

Those three teams highlight a list that includes teams from different eras, including the 1925 Lane Tech team from Illinois, the 1953 Capitol Hill team from Oklahoma and the 1948 Burlington team from Vermont. Recent selections include the 2018 Har-Ber squad from Arkansas, the 2015 Parkview team from Georgia and the 2014 Barbe team from Louisiana.

Teams were selected using a combination of past Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and MaxPreps national rankings as a starting point. Extra weight was given to national champions, undefeated teams and squads with multiple all-state players or MLB draft picks. For states not recognized in national rankings, state championships were used. Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota were not included since they do not play baseball as part of their state association.

Girls high school basketball rankings: No. 21 Valley Vista returns to HIGHSCORE Top 25 after Arizona reverses course on season - HIGHSCORE
Girls high school basketball rankings: No. 21 Valley Vista returns to MaxPreps Top 25 after Arizona reverses course on season
There has never been a season like this one — and hopefully there never will be again.

Though some teams have been able to play a nearly full schedule, others have yet to start, and many key games have been canceled. The result? The Top 25, which always contains a fair amount of guesswork, is even more chancy than in the past. As always, we are sure the 25 we've listed are very good teams, and they deserve full respect for their achievements, but it must be noted that a lot of teams that might have been on this list aren't likely to play.

In fact, No. 24 Chiawana may drop out next week if Washington cancels its season, and California's governing body meets Jan. 25 to determine if the Golden State's teams will even be allowed to play in the spring. And yet, at the same time, No. 21 Valley Vista returned the rankings after the state of Arizona reversed course and allowed the basketball season to be played.

So who knows what's next? We don't, that's for sure, but all credit to the coaches, players and staff who've made it this far, whether they're in the Top 25 or not.

MaxPreps Top 25 Girls High School Basketball Rankings

Record: 11-0 | Last week: 1
A key game against powerful Plant scheduled for Saturday has been canceled. The Highlanders have played one game in 2021. It's hoped the Jan. 29 matchup with Colonial will mark the No. 1 team's return to action.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 2
Several Washington Catholic Athletic Conference teams have canceled their seasons, but the Mustanges are set to begin play Feb. 3 against Elizabeth Seton.

Record: 11-0 | Last week: 3
A big win Monday over strong Forest Park cements Lions' No. 3 ranking. Next up is a rematch Jan. 26 with a solid Langston Hughes team.

Record: 1-0 | Last week: 4
One of the most talented teams in the country, the Royals have begun league play. There may not be many tests the rest of the way, but at least Hopkins is playing again.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 5
The Pioneers are set to begin play Jan. 27.

Record: 15-0 | Last week: 6
The Cougars finish the regular season with four games against teams it handled easily the first time around.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 7
Though the Cadets have been playing as a club team, none of the results are official. It's anticipated St. John's will be able to play as a high school in the near future.

Record: 12-0 | Last week: 8
The Red Knights beat Westminster Christian by four the first time around, so Friday's rematch could be a serious test.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 9
The Lancers get in the mix Jan. 21 against Raritan, but right now, the schedule calls for only 11 games.

Record: 19-0 | Last week: 10
The Cougars rolled over previously unbeaten Jersey Village 92-31 but Memorial and Cypress Ridge could be more of a challenge. Or not.

Record: 7-0 | Last week: 11
Oklahoma is loaded this year, but so far the Tigers look to the best. But Sooner State fans are already circling Feb. 11, when Classen SAS comes to Norman.

Record: 15-0 | Last week: NR
With wins over Wayne and Reynoldsburg — among others — the Wildcats jump into the Top 25 as Ohio's best. But Pickerington Central is the Jan. 20 opponent, so there's not much margin for error.

Record: 11-0 | Last week: 13
The Redskins play in a local tournament this weekend, and then draws 10-4 Bixby on Tuesday.

Record: 13-1 | Last week: 14
The Eagles get a serious test against 16-1 Plant on Friday, but there are only two more regular season games after that.

Record: 21-0 | Last week: 16
Hoover's game with perennial Georgia power St. Francis was canceled, but with 22-1 Hazel Green on the schedule Saturday, the Buccaneers have another chance to show just how good they are.

Record: 10-0 | Last week: 18
The Tigers have been on a break, but jump right in against 8-1 Father Ryan next Tuesday.

Record: 4-2 | Last week: 17
Next up for talented New Hope is Paul VI on Jan. 28, but it's possible coach Sam Caldwell will find some willing opponents before then.

Record: 12-0 | Last week: 20
The Silverwolves jump two spots, but 10-1 Syracuse, Friday's opponent, will show whether they deserved the bump.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 19
The Argonauts begin the season Feb. 2

Record: 14-1| Last week: 21
The Eagles' ranking is a reflection of a very talented roster, but to keep it, a Saturday win over No. 23 Duncanville, at home, is mandatory.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: NR
Despite mounting COVID cases, Arizona's high school association reversed its decision to cancel winter sports — which means the Monsoon not only jump back into the rankings, but will play three games in the next week.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 22
The Vikings plan to begin Jan. 29, and will face an "early" test Feb. 2 vs. Neumann-Goretti.

Record: 19-1 | Last week: 23
The Panthers have already lost to DeSoto once, and now must try to deal with DeSoto's height and talent on the road.

Record: 0-0 | Last week: 24
Even if the Riverhawks are given permission to play, star Talia Von Oelhoffen graduated early so she could start playing at Oregon State — which will make it very hard for Chiawana to hang on to this spot even if Washington allows basketball.

Record: 10-0 | Last week: 25
The talented Wildcats have a fairly easy week ahead, though it's always tough to play three games in that span of time, as Mississippi's best must do.

Dropped out: No. 12 Reynoldsburg (Ohio), No. 15 Sidwell Friends (Washington D.C.) season canceled.
Arch Manning is HIGHSCORE High School Football Freshman Player of the Year - HIGHSCORE
Arch Manning is MaxPreps High School Football Freshman Player of the Year
Video: Arch Manning 2019 highlights
Watch MaxPreps Freshman of the Year pile up many of his 34 touchdown passes.

Playing varsity football as a freshman is a major accomplishment. Starting as a ninth-grader is amazing.

But starting at quarterback? The most important position on the field. Stunning.

Add in the fact that his name — and bloodlines — are linked to football royalty and it's rather remarkable that Arch Manning, of Newman (New Orleans), pulled off what he did in 2019. The polished 6-foot-2, 175-pound signal-caller threw for 2,407 yards and 34 touchdowns, according to nola.com, leading the Greenies to a 9-2 record. He also rushed for six touchdowns.

All of it adds up to Manning being selected the MaxPreps National Freshman Player of the Year.
Graphic by Ryan Escobar
The grandson of Archie Manning and nephew of Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, Arch was impressive from the get-go, completing 24-of-34 passes for 224 yards and three touchdowns in his season debut, a 41-15 win over Lusher (New Orleans).

The following week, he threw for 211 yards and three more scores and in a 48-21 win over Riverside Academy (La.), he threw for 289 yards and five touchdowns.

Archie Manning said Arch is better at this stage than Peyton or Eli, who also attended Newman where each played junior varsity as freshmen. Arch Manning is second Louisiana native to win MaxPreps national Freshman of the Year, the other being Dylan Moses (Lawrence Lab) in 2013, and the sixth quarterback.
