Ten players from each of the state’s four classes were selected to Minnesota’s 2021 all-state teams by the Minnesota Girls Basketball Coaches Association in mid-March.

Five of the 10 Class 4A honorees play out of the Lake Conference, including Wayzata’s Jenna Johnson and Mara Braun. Johnson produced a team-best 21.5 points per game this season for the Trojans while Braun dropped 18.2 points a game. The duo powered Wayzata to an 11-7 overall record this year and a runner-up finish to Hopkins in the Class 4A, Section 6 playoffs.

Hopkins, the top-ranked team in Class 4A, has won 78 consecutive games and boasts Maya Nnaji, the Star Tribune Metro Player of the Year. The 6-foot-4 center averages 20.3 points and eight rebounds per game. Amaya Battle, an all-metro second team pick, is the other Royals player chosen all-state with 12.9 points per contest.

Kiani Lockett of Minnetonka, a second team all-metro honoree, is the fifth Lake player to make the cut. Lockett was the Skippers’ top scorer this year with 14.9 points per game. She helped guide Minnetonka to a 15-5 overall record, which includes a loss to Chaska in the Class 4A, Section 2 championship game. Lockett had 18 points in the 61-43 defeat while Chaska’s Mallory Heyer, an all-state and all-metro first team honoree, scored 14 points. Heyer’s Hawks soared into the Class 4A state tournament with Heyer recording 21.7 points per game.
