Orono, 5-10, sr. guard
One of the state's purest shooters, averaging 21.3 points per game. The school's all-time leading scorer shoots 49 percent from the floor and 81 percent from the free-throw line. "We would not be as successful without her," Orono coach Lavesa Glover-Verhagen said. Will play at Yale next year.
Lakeville North, 5-9, sr. guard
Notable for her speed. Not only scores and passes, but plays tenacious defense, too. "Temi may be one of the best defensive players we have ever recruited," Creighton coach Jim Flanery said. "She was a multi-sport athlete in high school, who will continue to improve as she focuses on basketball."
Elk River, 5-10, sr. guard
Metro Player of the Year. Led the metro in scoring at 26.1 ppg and helped the Elks to an undefeated record and their first state tournament appearance since 2006. Bradley coach Andrea Gorski says, "Gabi gives us versatility at the guard position as she is both a three-point threat and also strong enough to make plays at the basket."
St. Michael-Albertville, 5-8, sr. guard
Iowa State recruit averaged 19.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.9 steals in her final season. "Definitely a team before me player," Knights coach Kent Hamre said. "She got better every year because of her non-stop work ethic." Finished her career with 1,730 points, most in school history.
Hopkins, 5-10, freshman, guard
The Royals standout could wind up being the most coveted player in state history. Does a little bit of everything for coach Brian Cosgriff's squad, averaging 20.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 4.5 steals per game. "Paige showed why she is a special player," Cosgriff said.
