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

Francesca Vascellaro, Holy Angels. The Stars went 2-0 this week behind scoring from Vascellaro. The sophomore guard scored 36 points for No. 5-3A Holy Angels, which downed previously unbeaten St. Paul Como Park 90-88 in overtime on Dec. 18. 

Top performer candidates

Mia Curtis, Minnehaha Academy. Twenty-nine points, 10 assists, six rebounds and four steals from the guard was too much for Heritage Christian to handle on Dec. 21. Curtis' all-around performance led No. 6-2A Minnehaha Academy to an 84-50 win and a 5-5 record.

Makenna Johnson, Jordan. Johnson was on fire from behind the arc in back-to-back games — converting on 15 of 20 shots from deep — to lead her team to a 7-1 record. On Dec. 18, Johnson scored 37 points in a 74-69 victory over Norwood Young America. She followed up two days later with 25 points in Jordan's 72-38 win against Christ's Household of Faith.

Kya Phillips, Cristo Rey Jesuit. The senior found her scoring touch this week, as she hit the 30-point mark in two wins for Cristo Rey Jesuit. Phillips recorded 31 points at St. Paul Washington on Dec. 18 and 37 points versus Legacy Christian on Dec. 21. She also totaled 18 rebounds and 13 steals in the two games.

Mallory Brake, Hastings. The forward showed she was dangerous in multiple ways by recording 19 points, 15 rebounds, six steals and three blocks in a 62-58 loss to Hudson on Dec. 18. Brake scored 20 points two days later against Prescott.

Lauren Jensen, Lakeville North. Two high-scoring nights from Jensen set the No. 10-4A Panthers on a three-game win streak. The guard scored 37 points in a 63-56 win over Minnetonka on Dec. 17. In the next game, on Dec. 19, she recorded 31 points to lead Lakeville North to a 56-55 win over No. 3-4A Eastview.
