2021 Girls McDonald's All American Game rosters announced
While the McDonald's All American game will not be played for a second straight year, organizers on Tuesday announced 24 players named to the girls 2020 roster. The players will be honored virtually next month.

The 2021 McDonald's All American honorees join Skylar Diggins, Sabrina Ionescu, Maya Moore and Candace Parker as participants in one of the game's top showcases.

Tuesday's roster announcement includes top-ranked senior prospect and 2018-19 MaxPreps Player of the Year Azzi Fudd of St. John's (Washington. D.C.). Among the other headlining names were 2019-20 MaxPreps All-Americans Sania Feagin of Forest Park (Ga.), Saniya Rivers of Ashley (Wilmington, N.C.), Raven Johnson of Westlake (Atlanta), Aaliya Moore of Moore (Okla.), Jersey Wolfenbarger of Northside (Fort Smith, Ark.) and Payton Verhulst of Bishop Miege (Shawnee Mission, Kan.).

The University of South Carolina is the biggest beneficiary of the selections with four All-Americans. Other colleges with multiple selections: Connecticut and Texas, with three each, and USC, Stanford, Georgia and North Carolina, each with two.

Guards Rori Harmon and Kyndall Hunter are teammates at Cypress Creek (Houston) and will be next fall at the University of Texas.

The Girls McDonald's All-American Game debuted in 2002 and was played every year until last year, when it was canceled due to the pandemic.

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.

High school girls basketball: Raven Johnson named 2020-21 HIGHSCORE National Player of the Year - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball: Raven Johnson named 2020-21 MaxPreps National Player of the Year
The postseason banquet after Raven Johnson's freshman season was a celebration of a state championship for Westlake (Atlanta). As part of the festivities, a representative from the company that was going to make the championship rings was there to measure everyone for their new jewelry.

"What finger do you want your ring on?" he asked. "You might win another one, so choose carefully."

Johnson, the young point guard who had to be coaxed to say much during the season, held up her hand.

"She was dead serious," Westlake coach Hilda Hankerson said. "There was no smile."

"I remember it like it was yesterday," Johnson said. "I held up all four fingers and said, 'You might as well get the other three sizes too because I'm going to win four state titles.'"

Which, of course, she and Westlake did. The Lions won AAAAAAA titles in 2018, 2019 and 2020, then a AAAAAA title this season, which they parlayed into a GEICO Nationals victory and a MaxPreps National Championship.
Johnson is the 2020-21 MaxPreps National Player of the Year after averaging 15.1 points, 5.1 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game while leading Westlake to a 22-0 mark.

"I wouldn't call that cocky," said Johnson, who's headed to South Carolina. "I'd call that confident."

And Johnson credits that confidence for much of her success. "If you have confidence, it will carry you a long way," she said.

It didn't take long for Hankerson to recognize that Johnson was going to carry Westlake a long way. She first saw her at the local middle school which feeds Westlake.

"She was head and shoulders above the others," said the coach. "She really stood out."

And Hankerson, who's been running the show at Westlake for 26 years and played Division I basketball at Mercer, knew exactly what she was looking at.

"Raven was my point guard from Day One," she said. "The summer before she started ninth grade, I called my senior point guard over and said ‘You're getting ready to be my two guard.' "

And though Johnson obviously had the skills and the confidence, she also understood that basketball is a team game.

"As players get older, they sometimes get cliquish," Hankerson said. "The seniors just sit with the seniors, or the starters are always together. But Raven probably sat with more people than anyone I've ever coached, no matter how good they were."

At the same time, though, Johnson is ferociously competitive. She's always played with boys because "they challenge me every day. I like to compete," she said, and then pauses. "But most of all, I like to win."

She hopes to keep on winning playing for the Gamecocks and coach Dawn Staley, who's one of the greatest point guards in women's basketball history.

"She showed me videos of her playing, and I was like ‘Wow,' " said Johnson, who also knows Staley is a taskmaster.

That's OK with Johnson. "I don't like a coach who would kiss my butt. When you're screaming at me, I like that."

Of course, there's one thing she likes better.

"I like to win," she said, adding her goal at South Carolina is simple. "I just want to win a national championship."

And get another ring.
