Athletes are considered for the weekly top performer poll only if their stats are entered on the MN Girls' Basketball Hub by 10 a.m. on Sundays. If coaches or members of their staffs need access to enter stats, please email mnhubs@sportngin.com.

Top performer winner

Tori Decent, Crosby-Ironton. The senior forward came through for the Rangers in their final win of the regular season on Feb. 17 against Ogilvie. She dropped 27 points, including eight three-pointers. To make matters even worse for her opponent, Decent crashed the boards and completed the double-double with 16 rebounds.

Top performer candidates

Lindsey Becher, Mounds View. Becher continued her senior-season scoring spree in the final week of the regular season against Irondale. The forward added a team-best 31 points as Mounds View won 67-48 on Feb. 21.

Maya Nnaji, Hopkins. Nnaji may often play second-fiddle to senior star Paige Bueckers, but don't think Nnaji still isn't racking up solid performances. The sophomore closed out the Royals' unbeaten regular season with 30-point performances against Lake Conference foes St. Michael-Albertville (93-81 on Feb. 18) and Minnetonka (77-49 on Feb. 21).

Gianna Kneepkens, Duluth Marshall. Kneepkens returns to this list one final time and for good reason. First, the junior guard put on a double-double performance against Esko as she tallied 28 points and 11 rebounds in a 69-56 win on Feb. 20. Two days later, Kneepkens took her game to another level with a triple-double. She added 39 points, 15 rebounds and 10 steals as the Hilltoppers defeated International Falls 86-46.

Olivia Johannes, Visitation. After a 25-point performance, it would've been easy to put this sophomore center on this list. However, Johannes made it an even better stat line with her rebounding performance. She grabbed 28 rebounds and helped Visitation to a 55-41 win against Columbia Heights on Feb. 18.

*Stats and records as of Feb. 23.

Voting ends Sunday, March 1 at noon.
