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).

Video: 'The Last Dance' high schools
See where Michael Jordan and eight teammates prepped via Google Earth.

Chicago's United Center has been known for many things since it was built in 1994. The UC. The Madhouse on Madison. The House that Jordan Built.

Specifically, it is the home of the Chicago Bulls, where Michael Jordan and his teammates won four of their six NBA championships.

It's also where much of the footage was shot for the ESPN documentary series "The Last Dance," which concludes Sunday with its final two episodes.

The following are the home high school gyms and prep careers of Jordan and several teammates featured in the 10-part documentary.

E.A. Laney (Wilmington, N.C.) — Michael Jordan: Widely regarded as the greatest basketball player to ever lace up a pair of sneakers, Jordan didn't make the varsity as a sophomore. That started his fire to become the very best. A four-inch growth spurt combined with his fire and work ethic led to back-to-back seasons of 25-points-per-game-plus, a McDonald's All-American honor and scholarship to North Carolina.
Hamburg (Ark.) — Scottie Pippen: Named one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, Pippen was an All-Conference player and led the Lions to the state playoffs, but he received no college offers. Like Jordan and Dennis Rodman — see below — a growth spurt literally helped elevate his game.
Palisades (Pacific Palisades, Calif.) — Steve Kerr: The greatest 3-point shooter (percentage wise) in NBA history and an 11-time NBA champion (as player and coach), Kerr was perhaps known more for his baseball prowess as a third baseman and pitcher than sharpshooter on the Palisades hardwood.
Kiser High School (Dayton, Ohio) — Ron Harper: The school was shut down and demolished the year Harper graduated in 1982 and now is site of the town's K-6 elementary. Harper averaged 20.5 points, 13.4 rebounds, five assists, five steals and six blocks as a senior and was named first-team All-Ohio.
Poway (Calif.) — Jud Buechler: Not only a top basketball prospect, earning a scholarship to the University of Arizona, the 6-6 forward was also a Top 50 national volleyball standout at Poway.
Long Island Lutheran (Brookville, N.Y.) — Bill Wennington: A native of Canada, the 7-foot post's family moved to Brookville where he led one of the nation's Top 10 teams. He later starred at St. John's before a 13-year NBA career.
South Oak Cliff (Dallas) — Dennis Rodman: The extravagant NBA Hall of Famer stood 5-6 as a high school freshman and was cut from making any teams there. A massive growth spurt led him to a spot at then Cooke County College and eventual NBA stardom.
Hancock Central (Sparta, Ga.) — Horace Grant: He and brother Harvey led the Bulldogs to back-to-back state titles before Horace earned a scholarship to Clemson, where he was the ACC Player of the Year. He won four NBA titles with the Bulls and Lakers.
Brother Rice (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) — B.J. Armstrong: The three-time NBA champion and point guard holds the Warriors' single-game scoring record at 51 points and is a member of the Catholic League Hall of Fame.
