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.

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.

Arkansas
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.

Arizona
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.

California
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.

Connecticut
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.

Colorado
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.

Delaware
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.

Florida
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.

Georgia
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.

Hawaii
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.

Idaho
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.

Illinois
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.

Indiana
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

Ayanna Patterson, Homestead
Iowa
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.

Kansas
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.

Kentucky
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.

Louisiana
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.

Maine
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.

Massachusetts
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.

Maryland
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.

Michigan
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.

Minnesota
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.

Missouri
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.

Mississippi
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.

Montana
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.

Nebraska
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.

Nevada
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.

Ohio
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.

Oklahoma
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.

Oregon
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

Audrey Roden, West Linn
Pennsylvania
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.

Tennessee
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.

Texas
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.

Utah
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.

Vermont
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.

Virginia
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.

Washington
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.

Wisconsin
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.

Wyoming
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 baseball rankings: Barbe slides to No. 2 in HIGHSCORE Top 25 after Buford, Jesuit stumble in playoffs - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball rankings: Barbe slides to No. 2 in MaxPreps Top 25 after Buford, Jesuit stumble in playoffs
After enjoying a season at or near the top of the MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings for most of the season, Buford (Ga.) and Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.) faced the possibility of dropping out this week. Here's why they're still in the rankings.

Buford, which had been No. 1 for the vast majority of the season, dropped to No. 14 last week after a couple of last-inning losses to Pope (Marietta, Ga.) in the second round of the Class 6A state playoffs. Pope (29-12), which was in the rankings last week at No. 13, was then eliminated from the postseason two rounds later by Lassiter and was also dropped from the rankings. So why is Buford still in this week's rankings?

For one, Buford has 32 wins on the season and just two losses, both of which occurred in the last at-bat. Additionally, Pope defeated Buford without ever facing National Player of the Year candidate Dylan Lesko, who didn't pitch during the series. In football and basketball rankings, two losses can be enough to knock a team from the rankings. Not so in baseball. So even though Buford will not be the Class 6A state champion, it still deserves to be ranked for its overall body of work.

Jesuit, meanwhile, picked the wrong time to lose to Jefferson (Tampa, Fla.). The Tigers had defeated Jefferson four times during the regular season and in the district tournament. However, Jefferson managed the 3-2 win in the second round of bi-district play. Like Buford, however, Jesuit's complete body of work can't be overlooked in favor of Jefferson's win.

Hamilton (Chandler, Ariz.), was not as fortunate. Since it lost to Alhambra (23-1), which had a better record than Hamilton, in the semifinals, Alhambra had to move into the rankings and the Huskies dropped out.

Barbe (Lake Charles, La.), moved into the No. 2 spot, ahead of IMG Academy, after winning the Louisiana Class 5A state championship with a win over West Monroe. Barbe's only two losses came against Southside and Sam Houston, two teams it also defeated. One of Barbe's win was a 1-0, 11-inning thriller in the playoff semifinals.

Barbe had to move ahead of IMG Academy, since it had 16 more wins and the same amount of losses while also playing in a state playoff (IMG Academy does not participate in Florida playoffs). Barbe now faces the opportunity to finish as the final No. 1 team in the nation, a ranking it held in 2014, should current No. 1 Friendswood stumble.

A total of four teams joined the rankings this week. Besides Lassiter and Alhambra, Jackson Prep (Miss.) moved in after winning its fourth straight MAIS championship. In the finals, the Patriots swept Madison-Ridgeland, a team that had handed Jackson Prep one of its three losses.

Butler (Vandalia, Ohio), which was ranked No. 2 in the state coaches association rankings behind Olentangy Orange, moved in this week after beating Orange on Monday.

Dropped out: Hamilton (Chandler, Ariz.), Lakeland Christian (Lakeland, Fla.), Parkview Baptist (Baton Rouge, La.), Pope (Marietta, Ga.).

Game of the Week: Barbe 1, Sam Houston 0, 11 innings. Jack Walker pitched 10 no-hit innings with 13 strikeouts, but Gavin Guidry got the win by pitching the top of the 11th. Barbe won the game in the bottom of the inning when Kyle DeBarge was hit by a pitch, advanced to third and came home on Donovan LaSalle's fielder's choice. Barbe advanced to the championship game, where it defeated West Monroe for the Class 5A title.

Player of the Week: Maxwell Muncy, Thousand Oaks. Another big week for Muncy, who had three home runs, including a grand slam, with 10 RBI in three Thousand Oaks wins last week.

Recruit Watch: Jack Walker, Barbe. Walker finished a spectacular season season with a 10-inning no-hitter against Sam Houston in the semifinals of the Class 5A state tournament. He completed his career with a 13-0 record and 121 strikeouts.

Game to Watch: Stoneman Douglas vs. Columbus. The Eagles are coming off a quarterfinal win over Palm Beach Gardens that included a walk-off, three-run home run. Columbus (27-4) knocked off Braddock in the second round and Taravella 2-0 in the quarterfinals.

Milestones: A pair of longtime Oklahoma coaches called it a career last week following Roff's win over Red Oak in the Class B championship game. Roff coach Ead Simon has been named the school's superintendent and will step down from coaching. His team had a 59-game win streak and won a fall and spring championship during the past school year. He ends his career with 1,1,20 wins, according to Iwasatthegame.com. Red Oak coach Trey Booth, meanwhile, retires with 1,514 career wins, which ranks No. 5 in state history.

Streaks: Webster (Wis.) won three more games last week (9-0) to put its win streak at 46 wins in a row.
