How to watch: Allen Iverson Roundball Classic featuring MaxPreps National Players of the Year Chet Holmgren and Raven Johnson
The Allen Iverson Roundball Classic takes place Saturday in Tennessee as the only true high school basketball postseason showcase on the slate after the McDonald's All-American Game, Jordan Brand Classic and Nike Hoops Summit were called off due to the pandemic for a second consecutive year.

Among the storylines will be girls basketball MaxPreps National Player of the Year Raven Johnson stepping on the floor to compete with the best boys players in the country. The 5-foot-8 point guard led Westlake (Atlanta) to back-to-back unbeaten state championship seasons.

The game will also feature the boys MaxPreps National Player of the Year in Chet Holmgren, who just led Minnehaha Academy to a fourth consecutive state championship in Minnesota and will play at Gonzaga next season.

How to watch

Date: Saturday, May 8 | Time: 6 p.m. local time
Location: Bartlett High School (Bartlett, Tenn.)
Live stream: SUVtv

Holmgren will be matched up against top-ranked senior forward Paolo Banchero, who missed his senior season of high school and instead competed for club team BFL Prep. A strong performance for Banchero head-to-head against Holmgren could leave the door open for the Duke bound forward to supplant the 7-foot center for top spot in the Class of 2021.

Other players to watch include MaxPreps All-Americans Kendall Brown, Kennedy Chandler, Matthew Cleveland, Daimion Collins, Jerddarian Davison, Nolan Hickman, Hunter Sallis, Terquavion Smith and TyTy Washington.

High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball: Teams with the most state championships
It's been 34 seasons since Tucson won an Arizona state baseball championship, and the Badgers have won only won four since 1957. Yet, Tucson has heads MaxPreps list of teams with the most high school baseball championships.

The Badgers won their first state title in 1912, but the greatest stretch of sustained excellence for Tucson came between 1939 and 1956. During that 18-year period, Tucson won 15 state crowns, including eight in a row from 1939 to 1946. The greatest Tucson team, however, might be the 1972 team that went 25-0. Tucson has rebounded to appear in the Class 5A state finals in 2018 and 2019, finishing as the runner-up each time.

Woodrow Wilson (Washington, D.C.) is closing in on Tucson and might have tied the Badgers by now if not for COVID. Wilson has won every DCIAA championship since 1993 and it would have been the favorite in 2020 and 2021. Wilson plays in an association with just 15 schools.

Asher (Okla.) is one of three schools tied with 22 state championships. That total is actually a bit misleading since Asher has won a total of 45 baseball championships. However only 22 of them have come in the spring. With no football program, Asher also plays baseball in the fall and has racked up 23 championships during that season as well.

Other teams with 22 championships include Bishop Hendricken (Warwick, R.I.) and Jackson Prep (Miss.).

The championships listed are based on information found on state association websites. Not all state websites had complete lists of past champions. MaxPreps also included independent and private school championships, including TAPPS in Texas, the MAIS in Mississippi and the NCISAA in North Carolina.

Past champion lists were unavailable for AISA in Alabama, the SCISA in South Carolina and the VISAA in Virginia. California is not included because it does not hold state championships in baseball (although a few championships seasons were held in the 1920s.). The Inter-AC in Pennsylvania is also not included, although Penn Charter holds the record there with 46 championships dating back to the late 1800s.

High school girls basketball rankings: Lake Highland Prep extends win streak to 32 games, remains No. 1 in this week's HIGHSCORE Top 25 - HIGHSCORE
High school girls basketball rankings: Lake Highland Prep extends win streak to 32 games, remains No. 1 in this week's MaxPreps Top 25
State championship banners don't have an asterisk on them — nor do national rankings. As many of the teams in this week's MaxPreps Top 25 high school girls basketball rankings begin navigating the always treacherous waters of postseason play, their goal is to win a state title, no matter what the circumstances.

If they do, the banner that goes up in the gym isn't going to note that COVID changed everything in 2020-21 – nor should it.

And the same applies to the MaxPreps Top 25. Sure, a couple California teams would likely have bumped some teams out, and certainly a few DMV schools would be taking up spots, plus there would likely be entries from unrepresented states such as Illinois and New York.

But every year is different. Key players get hurt. Banked 3-pointers go in at the buzzer. Officials make goofy calls. This season is unique for other reasons, but regardless, every team on the list below has had a very good, if not great, year. And every team on the list below deserves its spot and the recognition that goes along with it.

There are always caveats, strange occurrences, inexplicable upsets and those that manage to end the season in the MaxPreps Top 25 have somehow found a way to earn a ranking. And in that regard, this year is no different – and there's no asterisk on these rankings, just as there won't be on that banner in the gym.

It's not the circumstances that define teams — it's how they respond.

NOTE: Coaches and team personnel are encouraged to update schedules and results on MaxPreps – especially those in the mix for MaxPreps Top 25 consideration. For assistance or questions, please reach out to [email protected]

MaxPreps Top 25 Girls Basketball Rankings

Record: 16-0 | Last week: 1
The Lake Highland Prep train is rolling, and there doesn't seem to be anything short of GEICO Nationals that can derail it. The Highlanders trounced Anclote 88-17 last Thursday in the Class 4A regional quarterfinals and beat Eustis 67-57 in the regional semifinals Tuesday.

2. Westlake (Atlanta)
Record: 15-0 | Last week: 2
Westlake has had nearly three weeks off but will finally get back on the court this weekend in the AAAAAA playoffs – which makes it time for our annual question: Why doesn't Georgia just call them the 6A playoffs instead of making us count the "A"s?

3. Mount Notre Dame (Cincinnati)
Record: 21-0 | Last week: 3
Mount Notre Dame will continue to feast on low seeds for a few more games, but there are a bunch of good teams in Ohio and the road to the state title will surely have a few bumps.

4. Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.)
Record: 8-0 | Last week: 4
It could be that Hopkins was distracted the last time it played Minnetonka and the one-point win was an aberration. And then Minnetonka lost to Chaska and dropped out of the MaxPreps Top 25. Still, Hopkins' game at Minnetonka Thursday definitely qualifies as a big one.

5. Edison Academy (Detroit)
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 5
A game at Renaissance on Saturday should be the toughest so far.

6. Incarnate Word Academy (St. Louis)
Record: 18-0 | Last week: 6
Incarnate Word continues to show the Show Me State who's boss, though no games are on the schedule until Feb. 24. At that point, 8-1 Burroughs will be the opponent, which will likely be the last real test until postseason.

7. Cypress Creek (Houston)
Record: 27-0 | Last week: 7
The Cougars are 68-1 over the past two seasons.

8. Norman (Okla.)
Record: 13-0 | Last week: 8
Norman only beat Edmond Memorial by 12 the first time around and that game was in the friendly confines. Friday's rematch is at Edmond Memorial.

9. St. John-Vianney (Holmdel, N.J.)
Record: 6-0 | Last week: 9
The Garden State's best hosts unbeaten Red Bank Catholic on Saturday. New Jersey's postseason will be brief and local, so the usual playoff pressure will be much reduced.

10. Paul VI (Chantilly, Va.)
Record: 10-0 | Last week: 10
Ten games isn't very many but it's enough to convince us Paul VI is a top 10 team.

11. Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.)
Record: 19-1 | Last week: 11
The Eagles have added three games to their schedule, playing in the Independent School Nationals this weekend. Along with New Hope (ranked in preseason), the event will bring in other quality teams as well, giving Montverde a chance to jump into the top 10 – or conceivably drop down in the rankings.

12. DeSoto (Texas)
Record: 21-2 | Last week: 13
Before any shot at No. 7 Cypress Creek is possible, a third win over Duncanville will likely be required.

13. Newark (Ohio)
Record: 21-1 | Last week: 14
Newark and No. 3 Mount Notre Dame are the favorites in Ohio, and though both won't be tested for a while, there's no guarantee the two can navigate the tricky shoals of Ohio girls basketball long enough to get the matchup fans want to see.

14. Grandview (Aurora, Colo.)
Record: 4-0 | Last week: 17
Mullen's only loss of the season came to Grandview and those two teams meet again Friday.

15. Fremont (Plain City, Utah)
Record: 20-0 | Last week: 15
The regular season ends Thursday for Fremont with the 6A playoffs to follow. It looks like the path to an unbeaten season has few potholes.

16. Archbishop Wood (Warminster, Pa.)
Record: 4-0 | Last week: 16
Continues to handle the competition in the Philadelphia Catholic League but Neumann-Goretti could be a more than a handful come Feb. 23.

17. Princess Anne (Virginia Beach, Va.)
Record: 8-0 | Last week: NR
The Cavaliers are averaging 80.5 points per game so far this season.

18. Anderson County (Lawrenceburg, Ky.)
Record: 15-0 | Last week: 20
We'll find out just how good Anderson County is this week. First up is 12-0 Elizabethtown on Thursday and then a trip to 11-3 Sacred Heart on Saturday.

19. Rutgers Prep (Somerset, N.J.)
Record: 4-0 | Last week: 19
Due to New Jersey's limited postseason, Rutgers Prep may not be seriously tested all year.

20. Chaska (Minn.)
Record: 8-0 | Last week: NR
Chaska burst the bubble of previous No. 25 Minnetonka with a 71-66 overtime win and jumped into the MaxPreps Top 25. But Hopkins shows up on the schedule in early March, so residence in the rankings after that is uncertain.

21. Hazel Green (Ala.)
Record: 31-1 | Last week: 21
The Trojans will likely face some teams with gaudy records — Mortimer Jordan and Hartselle among them — but so far, no one in the Yellowhammer State has been able to turn Hazel Green blue.

22. Ponchatoula (La.)
Record: 28-0 | Last week: 22
The 32-team 5A playoffs begin Friday. Ponchatoula is unlikely to be challenged until the third-round game on Feb. 26.

23. Bearden (Knoxville, Tenn.)
Record: 23-1 | Last week: 24
District play is under way in Tennessee and Bearden will likely have to get past 15-5 Farragut to advance to the regionals. Bearden only beat Farragut by one and by six in the first two meetings.

24. American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.)
Record: 21-2 | Last week: NR
A third Florida team cracks the MaxPreps Top 25. Both of American Heritage's losses are to to-shelf teams and it also is the only team to have beaten Blanche Ely. A healthy Palm Bay will likely be the biggest challenge in the 5A playoffs.

25. Pius X (Lincoln, Neb.)
Record: 18-0 | Last week: NR
The only team that has given Pius X any trouble is Fremont, as every other win has been by 12 points or more. Since Fremont isn't in the same division, it looks like Pius X is on track for a state title and a permanent home in the MaxPreps Top 25.

Dropped out: No. 12 North Central (Indianapolis); No. 18 Valley Vista (Surprise, Ariz.); No. 23 Upperman (Baxter, Tenn.); No. 25 Minnetonka (Minn.)

Jackson Ferris, IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)
He opened the season with a no-hitter against Palmetto and followed that up with a perfect game against Flower Mound (Texas).

Cooper Kinney, Baylor (Chattanooga, Tenn.)
The Red Raiders picked up a big win last week, 5-2 over Farragut. Kinney had a double, a home run and three RBI in the win, a performance that has become typical for the Baylor infielder. Kinney is batting .468 with 26 runs, 37 RBI, 16 doubles and seven home runs.

Braden Montgomery, Madison Central (Madison, Miss.)
The Jaguars got off to a 24-0 start to the season and rose all the way to No. 3 in the national rankings before falling back following a loss.

He came up big in Westminster Christian's win over nationally-ranked Stoneman Douglas with a home run and a pair of RBI.

Drake Varnado, IMG Academy
On a team loaded with potential first-round MLB draft picks, Varnado has been the consistent threat for the Ascenders. He leads IMG starters in batting average (.434), runs (33), hits (36), and home runs (7). He had two home runs in wins over Florence and Montverde Academy.

Jack Walker, Barbe (Lake Charles, La.)
After sitting out his junior season with an arm injury, Walker has returned to form this year leading Barbe to a 35-2 record. He is 12-0 with a 0.44 ERA. In 63.2 innings pitched, has 97 strikeouts. Walker has thrown two no-hitters on the season, including one in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs.
California high school football: Defending HIGHSCORE National Champion St. John Bosco doubles up Sierra Canyon in season opener - HIGHSCORE
California high school football: Defending MaxPreps National Champion St. John Bosco doubles up Sierra Canyon in season opener
It had been 455 days since defending MaxPreps National Champion St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) took the field in a high school football game that counted. No worries as the Braves cruised to a 42-21 win Saturday night over Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.) to begin the 2021 spring season.

The Trailblazers scored on their opening drive as Daniel Duran found Virginia Tech signee DJ Harvey for a 26-yard score but the Braves would answer with three straight touchdowns to take a 21-7 lead. Rayshon Luke, Michael Hayes and sophomore quarterback Pierce Clarkson all rushed for a score in the first half.

Clarkson and junior Katin Houser alternated possessions under center and both played well. Replacing DJ Uiagalelei at quarterback is a steep hill, but both showed why FBS offers are starting to pile up.

Sierra Canyon cut the deficit to 21-14 in the final minutes of the opening half when Duran found tight end Henry Deakins from 19-yards out for his second scoring strike.

Pierce Clarkson, St. John Bosco quarterback
Those would be the final points the Braves defense allowed outside of a late, fourth-quarter touchdown with the reserves playing.

St. John Bosco dominated the second half as Luke rushed for a 67-yard score on the opening possession after Clarkson found sophomore standout Matayo Uiagalelei on a third-down conversion. DJ's younger brother stood out on both sides of the ball and showed why he's the fifth-rated recruit in California from the Class of 2023.

Houser made a big-time play alluding pressure and rolling outside the pocket to find Chedon James for a 21-yard touchdown that increased the Braves lead to 35-14 with 4:28 left in the third quarter. The pair connected on a 41-yard touchdown late in the fourth.

Sierra Canyon freshman quarterback Alonzo Contreras connected with Jason Jones for the final score of the night with seven seconds remaining.

Jason Negro's squad dominated in the trenches. Four-star junior Earnest Greene, USC signee Maximus Gibbs and senior Edward Riley created huge holes for the running game while also allowing Houser and Clarkson plenty of time in the pocket.

The Brave's defense forced three turnovers and shined on all three levels.

The Braves next face Santa Margarita (Rancho Santa Margarita) on March 20 while Sierra Canyon looks to bounce back March 19 against St. Bernard (Playa del Rey).
