The Minnesota Girls Basketball Coaches Association released its all-state teams and honorable mention lists via social media earlier this month.

Class 3A is headlined by four picks from the two teams that were slated to play each other in the state championship game last weekend: DeLaSalle and Becker. 

Nurjei Weems and Kiani Lockett represent the Islanders, while Becker had Julia Bengtson and Adeline Kent chosen. The athletes never got to play each other on the big stage for the championship hardware due to the remainder of the state tourney being canceled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic but they do get to exit the season having gotten some recognition for their individual achievements.

Aside from DeLaSalle and Becker, no other teams in Class 3A feature multiple all-state picks.

From the Class 4A all-state team, undefeated Hopkins is represented by the Star Tribune's Metro Player of the Year, Paige Bueckers, a UConn commit, and her 6-foot-4 sophomore sidekick, Maya Nnaji. 

Hopkins' Lake Conference and Class 4A, Section 6 nemesis Wayzata also has a pair of picks in forwards Jenna Johnson, who stands 6-foot-2, and the 6-foot-4 Annika Stewart. South Suburban Conference champion Farmington, meanwhile, also has two all-state selections in Molly Mogensen and Sophie Hart.
