Lindsey Becher, Mounds View. The junior scored a game-high 18 points in a Mustangs loss to East Ridge early last week, then followed up with a complete performance in Mounds Views' 50-45 win over White Bear Lake on Friday. Becher posted 24 points, 14 rebounds, seven blocks, and five steals in the Suburban East Conference win.
Carly Krsul, Robbinsdale Armstrong. Krsul recorded back-to-back double-doubles this week, bringing her to four in Robbinsdale Armstrong's six undefeated games this season. She scored 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in a win over Coon Rapids on Dec. 11, then added 25 points and 18 boards at Blaine on Dec. 14.
Joey Batt, New Ulm. The senior's high scoring has helped New Ulm reach the No. 10 ranking in the latest Class 3A poll. She scored 31 points and forced 10 steals in a 64-55 victory over St. Peter on Dec. 11. Batt then put up 26 points along with eight steals in the Eagles' win at Faribault on Dec. 15.
Sara Kottke, Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart. Kottke proved to be a threat to her opponents this week, as she scored 28 points — going 10-of-12 from the free-throw line — and grabbed 18 rebounds (10 offensive) in Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart's 60-57 win over Sleepy Eye on Dec. 11. In her next game, a 50-77 loss to Minnesota Valley Lutheran three days later, the guard nearly completed a triple-double — recording 20 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists — along with five steals.
