High school girls basketball: No. 2 Westlake, No. 9 Paul VI advance to GEICO Nationals final - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball: No. 2 Westlake, No. 9 Paul VI advance to GEICO Nationals final
Fremont (Plain City, Utah) had all the momentum, cutting a 14-point deficit to three with a little over three minutes to go. But in a snap, like they had done all game, Raven Johnson and Ta'Niya Latson took it all away, lifting Westlake (Atlanta, Ga.) to a stirring 64-54 GEICO Nationals semifinal victory Friday at Suncoast Credit Union Arena in Ft. Myers, Fla.

Playing before a national ESPNU audience, Johnson and Latson were brilliant, combing for all but 13 of their team's points, lifting the second-ranked Lions into Saturday's 10 a.m. EST championship game against No. 9 Paul VI (Chantilly, Va.), which stunned No. 1 Lake Highland Prep (Orlando, Fla.) 52-49 in overtime, ending the Highlanders' 35-game win streak.

Johnson, a 5-foot-10 South Carolina commit, had 25 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists and seven steals, while 5-9 junior Latson scored a game-high 26 points to go along with five rebounds, four assists and four steals as the Lions improved to 21-0.

"They did what they've been doing all season," Westlake coach Hilda Hankerson told ESPNU after the game. "They're good leaders and friends on and off the court. That chemistry between them is something you just can't coach. We're just so excited to have one more game."

All four teams in the event entered unbeaten, reigning state champions and ranked among the top 11 teams in the country. The two games didn't disappoint, each coming down to the wire.

Fremont (26-1), finally utilizing its height advantage, closed to within 53-50 on two free throws by 6-5 sophomore Maggie Mendelson (23 points, six rebounds) with 3:02 left.

In the next minute, Johnson and Latson combined for three steals and three breakaway layups. A short jumper by Misia McKinney made it 62-50 and just like that, this semifinal was over. Westlake, with superior quickness, forced 20 turnovers and turned them into 22 points. Latson and Johnson each played the entire 32 points and combined for only seven turnovers.

"Those two are definitely special in the open court," Hankerson said.

Emma Calvert, a 6-4 BYU commit, added 13 points and a game-high 11 rebounds for No. 11 Fremont, which was actually outrebounded 34-30.

Paul VI 52, Lake Highland Prep 49

It had been almost two months since the 14-time defending Virginia state champions had played a game — Feb. 9 — and with 21 turnovers and a 12 of 26 performance at the line, there were definitely signs of rust.

But the Panthers (11-0) made up for it with defense, forcing 28 turnovers and using balanced scoring, led by Jaelyn Talley (17 points), Duke signee Lee Volker (13 points, six rebounds, four steals) and Bella Perkins (10 points, five steals, four assists).

Alyssa Costigan scored all nine of her points in the first two minutes of the fourth quarter, leading a 10-2 run and giving the Panthers a 46-41 lead. Down 47-42 with 1:35 to go, Eleecia Carter (team-high 14 points) forced overtime for Lake Highland with a mid-range jumper than a 3-pointer.

In overtime a 3-pointer by Volker gave her team the lead for good. Paul VI completely locked down on the defensive end, not allowing a bucket in overtime, just two free throws by Alabama signee Kayla Blackshear (10 points, 12 rebounds).

Louisville commit Nyla Harris added 11 points and 10 rebounds, and Central Florida-bound Stefanie Ingram contributed nine points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals for the Highlanders, who hadn't lost since Dec. 28, 2019 — a 56-55 contest to Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.).

In addition to the turnovers, cold shooting did in the nation's No. 1-ranked team. The Highlanders made just 16 of 52 from the field (31 percent), including 4 of 22 on 3-pointers (18.2 percent).

High school football: Former NFL running back, Olympic track sprinter Jahvid Best takes over California program - HIGHSCORE
High school football: Former NFL running back, Olympic track sprinter Jahvid Best takes over California program
Jahvid Best, whose promising NFL career was cut short by head injuries, will return to the field to coach high school football. The former Cal and Detroit Lions running back was named head coach Monday at Saint Mary's (Albany, Calif.), the rival of the school he attended as a prep.

Known for his blazing speed and big-play prowess, the 32-year-old Best takes over a program that hasn't had a winning season since 2015. Since that time, the Panthers have gone 18-28.

But winning championships or coaching at the next level is not on the mind of Best. He said he just wants to pass on his knowledge of the game, the value of hard work and more life lessons. 

"It's all about the culture," he said. "I want to create an environment that is about learning and growing, about the value of work ethic and dedication. A lot of people wrote about all the talent I had as a player, but everything I truly earned was through hard work. Football is no different than life. What you put into it, you'll get out of it."

Best rushed for a Bay Area prep record 3,325 yards and 48 touchdowns his senior year at Salesian College Preparatory (Richmond), leading the Pride to a North Coast Section title. He left as the region's career rushing leader at 6,379, which was later shattered by recent Steelers first-round selection Najee Harris of Antioch.

Also a track star, Best won the 2007 state track meet 100-meter finals in a wind-aided 10.31 seconds and was second in the 200 (20.65). After a stellar three seasons at Cal, where he accounted for more than 3,200 total yards and 35 touchdowns, he was a first-round pick of the Detroit Lions in 2010.
Jahvid Best rushed for more than 3,300 yards and 48 touchdowns as a senior at Salesian (Richmond, Calif.) high school.

Jahvid Best rushed for more than 3,300 yards and 48 touchdowns as a senior at Salesian (Richmond, Calif.) high school.
He started 15 of 16 games as a rookie, but suffered a concussion in the preseason of his second season. Midway through that 2011 campaign, he suffered another concussion, which ended a more than promising NFL career.

Best went back to track and eventually ran a personal best of 10.16 in the 100 and competed in the 2016 Summer Olympics for Saint Lucia. He plans to help out Jay Lawson and the St. Mary's track and field program as well.

Saint Mary's athletic director Casey Filson is thrilled to have Best on staff, but admitted a few alum were concerned to have a former athlete from a rival high school leading the program.

"Given his experience and who Jahvid Best is, those concerns were quickly put to rest," Filson said. "We're very excited to have Jahvid join the Panther community."

Said Best: "I've been hearing it from the other direction (laughing). It's all good. I was just looking for an opportunity to make my own path to influence young people by passing on the knowledge I gained from football to the next generation. I'm so thankful Saint Mary's has afforded it to me."

Best was a Salesian assistant coach under his old coach Chad Nightingale for three seasons, ending in 2019. Since Nightingale isn't going anywhere and former Panthers' head coach Connor Banks took an administrative position at Justin-Siena (Napa), this was a perfect fit for Best. 
Filson saw the former football and track star often on the sideline of Saint Mary's soccer games, where his wife Rachel Armstrong coached the girls team. She recently left on maternity leave, having her and Best's first child, daughter Kamiyah three months ago.

When Banks left, Best's interest grew in the position, communicating his desire to be in charge of all phases of a program.

"I'm taking this all step-by-step," Best said. "I'm not looking to advance to something else. It could take 15 years to build, I really don't know, but I'm going to enjoy the process of building this Panther football program."
High school baseball: Jesuit, IMG Academy, Buford among Florida, Georgia squads dominating HIGHSCORE Top 25 - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Jesuit, IMG Academy, Buford among Florida, Georgia squads dominating MaxPreps Top 25
The first national high school baseball rankings of the season find Florida and Georgia dominating the MaxPreps Top 25 as the Sunshine State logs seven teams, including three of the top four while the Peach State is next with five.

With a pair of season-opening wins Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.) holds on to the top spot while IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) started 3-0. The two teams are expected to meet April 20.

The Top 25 rankings only include teams that expect to begin play in the next month. As a result, several teams not expected to begin play until April have been dropped despite holding a spot in the preseason Top 25 rankings.

Dropped out: No. 3 JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.); No. 6 Baylor (Chattanooga, Tenn.); No. 10 Thousand Oaks (Calif.); No. 11 Parkview (Lilburn, Ga.); No. 14 Valley Christian (San Jose, Calif.); No. 18 American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.); Ronald Reagan (Pfafftown, N.C.).

Game of the Week: Buford 3, Parkview 0. In a game between Georgia's best, Buford pulled out the win over Parkview behind the pitching of MaxPreps Underclass All-American Dylan Lesko, who had nine strikeouts.

Player of the Week: Jackson Ferris, IMG Academy. Ferris tossed a five-inning no-hitter with 12 strikeouts against Palmetto.

Recruit Watch: Brady House, Winder-Barrow. Considered one of the top 10 players in the nation, House opened his senior year with five RBI in his first three games to boost Winder-Barrow into the rankings.

Game to Watch: IMG Academy vs. Southlake Carroll. The Florida-based school is scheduled to head to Texas this week to take on the Dragons, who have won two Class 6A state championships over the past three years.

Streaks: Webster (Wisc.), led by former MLB pitcher Jarrod Washburn, did not get to play a single game last year, but it has the nation's longest active win streak at 37 games dating back to the 2018 season. Webster is not scheduled to begin play until April 18.

Saniya Rivers of Ashley (Wilmington) is the 2020-21 MaxPreps North Carolina High School Basketball Player of the Year. The 6-foot-1 senior was the driving force behind a 15-2 season, which culminated with a trip to the 4A state semifinals.

Rivers averaged 36.8 points per game – more than a point a minute – to go along with 11.5 rebounds, 5.3 steals and 5.1 assists per game.

Rivers is rated the No. 3 prospect in the Class of 2021 by ESPN Hoopgurlz. She will take her explosive athleticism and all-around game to Dawn Staley and South Carolina next year.

Each state's MaxPreps Player of the Year will be considered for inclusion in the MaxPreps All-America Team.
