Jayda Adams (Mater Dei, Santa Ana)
Setting up shop from behind the 3-point line, the three-year standout for the Monarchs knocked down six 3-pointers and finished with a season-high 28 points during a 77-35 win over Glendora. With a winning week, Mater Dei went back into this week’s State Top 20 after a brief hiatus.

Christine Buksa (Foothills Christian, El Cajon)
While the boys team may be better known, this 5-foot-5 senior had a big game for the girls team when she nearly outscored San Diego Academy by herself with 41 points in an easy 76-42 win.

Cailyn Crocker (Los Alamitos)
She had a tough first three quarters but would end up with a game-high 27 points and made three field goals and all seven of her free throw attempts in the final quarter during a 56-52 victory for the Griffins over Huntington Beach to start Sunset League play.

Shanaijah Davison (Pioneer, Woodland)
Scoring over 30 points for the second game in a row, Davidson’s her 38 points was not enough to prevent a 71-58 loss to Inderkum of Sacramento. She remains among the state scoring leaders with 37.2 points per game.

Kirsten Dubberke (Mariposa County, Mariposa)
The 5-foot-8 guard has been leading the Grizzlies all year with a 20 ppg scoring average and filled up the stat sheet last week in a 59-42 victory over Waterford. She finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and seven steals.

Ava Galpin (Immanuel, Reedley) 
A 6-foot-2 junior, she scored 18 points in the opening game of the Immanuel Tournament in a 47-25 win over Frontier. In the second game, Galpin scored a season high of 31 points in a 57-30 over Mendota.

Anyssia Gibbs (Granite Hills, Apple Valley)
It was almost a triple-double for the super-productive Gibbs when Granite Hills rolled past Hesperia 49-20 last week. She posted 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds but just missed the triple-double with nine steals.

Chelsey Gipson (Palisades, Pacific Palisades)
All-State candidate got the Dolphins out to a great start in their first home game of the season and finished with 36 points in a 81-53 victory against Venice. Gipson also made eight 3-pointers. According to her father, 36 points also is her career high.

Marissa Holt (Yucaipa)
San Bernardino Cajon’s 24-game league winning streak came to an end in a 56-49 loss to Yucaipa and Holt, who had nine of her 25 points in the fourth quarter. Holt also has been scoring in other outings for the Thunderbirds with 29, 37 and 25 points in the three previous games before facing Cajon.

Shyla Latone (Bonita Vista, Chula Vista)
There continue to be some huge offensive performances being put up in San Diego on a weekly basis. In Latone’s first game of 2017, she scored 41 points during a 67-64 win over Olympian of Chula Vista.

Destiny Littleton (Bishop’s, La Jolla)
She had just one game last week but Littleton didn’t fail to score in a big way as she scored 52 points to go with 11 rebounds in a 70-65 win over Eastlake of Chula Vista. Littleton may become the all-time state career scoring leader within a week and is the national reported scoring leader for this season so far with an average still above 50 ppg.

Hannah Nugen (Freedom Christian, Fair Oaks)
A scorer coming up the charts in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section, Nugen nailed most of her shots en route to 41 points in a 67-30 triumph against Trinity Prep of Napa. She also pulled down 17 rebounds.

Lauren Richter (Providence, Orland)
Despite being a low-scoring 43-26 contest (a win) over Maxwell, Richter was just over her scoring average of 21.4 ppg with 22 points and also nearly triple-doubled with 14 rebounds (a season high) and eight steals.

Janelle Sumilong (Hanford)
Sumilong continues to be something else and began a solid week by scoring 23 points with eight rebounds and seven steals in a 74-45 over Golden West of Visalia. She then scored 26 points with eight rebounds and six assists in a 72-35 over Garces of Bakersfield and finished the week with 25 points, six assists and seven steals in a 64-37 win over El Diamante of Visalia. Janelle also is approaching 2,000 career points.

Kameron Taylor (Bakersfield Christian)
Already a NorCal Player of the Week honoree from this season, Taylor scored a game high of 34 points and went 12-of-17 at the free-throw line in a 74-40 victory against Fresno Christian. She also had 14 rebounds, eight assists and five steals steals. Kameron also still leads the Central Section in scoring with a 24.8 average.

Aubrey Wagner (Campolindo, Moraga)
It’s not Haley Van Dyke for a change getting onto this honor roll for this week from Campo. Wagner, a 5-10 junior point guard, recorded her first triple double of the season last Friday night against Concord High with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to go along with three blocked shots. The Cougars won that game as well, 75-64, against Campolindo of Moraga.

Two of this week’s best are Sebastian Much from JSerra of San Juan Capistrano and Anyssia Gibbs from Granite Hills of Apple Valley. Much was a key player two years ago at his previous school, Archbishop Mitty, when it nearly won a CIF Division II state title. Gibbs, meanwhile, is leading her league in every statistical category.

Amazing season for junior Anyssia Gibbs from Granite Hills of Apple Valley continues with 48-point outing vs. Silverado. This week’s best also includes a 52-point performance in a 109-100 four-overtime game from Calvary Murrieta’s Ryley Collom, who only averages 13 ppg, plus we have a triple-double from Saratoga’s Joel Schneidmiller, who also happens to be one of the top volleyball players in Northern California.

Note: We will collect totals from MaxPreps, newspapers, tweets and from those sent in to us. We also will compile single-game highs from this post throughout the season and of course we use our weekly State Stat Stars collection as an aid for the Cal-Hi Sports State Record Book. That is the only state record book anyone has ever done and we have published it seven times with full copyright protection. To report totals to us for this feature and for the record book, email or call 209-608-1317. You can also text to 209-608-1317.

Kim Aiken (Redlands East Valley, Redlands)
The 6-foot-7 senior capped a strong week with 32 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks as the Wildcats beat Citrus Valley of Redlands 68-42 in their Citrus Belt League final game. Aiken, who is averaging 25 points and 11.7 rebounds per game, had 23 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks earlier in the week against Cajon of San Bernardino.

Description: Antunez (Clovis West, Fresno)
He scored a game high of 30 points in a 74-62 win over Buchanan of Clovis and scored another 30 points in winning fashion against host Clovis East in leading the Golden Eagles to a 64-59 triumph. The senior also now has scored 1,612 points, which according to CIF Central Section historian Bob Barnett is third best in school history.


Riley Battin (Oak Park)
Oak Park and its junior standout are one of those teams that could lose twice early in the loaded CIF Southern Section Open Division playoffs and then make a big run at one of the CIF divisional state titles. Battin had a dominant outing last week with 35 points and 14 rebounds as the Eagles blew out Simi Valley 92-46.

Thomas Brown (Menlo School, Atherton)
Despite scoring his career-high of 30 points, it was not enough to prevent a 74-59 loss to Pinewood of Los Altos Hills. On the season, this junior is averaging 13.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per game for the Knights.

Ryley Collom (Calvary Murrieta, Murrieta)
In a wild-and-wacky 109-100 game that went to four overtimes with Calvary Murrieta on top of Santa Rosa Academy, you’d expect a stat star or two and Collom was it. He is only averaging about 13 ppg, but on that night he made eight 3-pointers and racked up 52 points. Collom’s previous high was 28.

Avo Danielian (Grant, Van Nuys)
Averaging nearly 20 points per game during his senior season playing for legendary San Fernando Valley coaching icon Howie Levine (who won his 500th game earlier this season), Avo had 30 points during a 80-56 win for the Lancers over Chavez of San Fernando.

Dameane Douglas (Hanford West, Hanford)
One of the top grid-hoopers in the CIF Central Section, Douglas scored a game high of 38 points in a 66-53 win by the Huskies over Mt. Whitney of Visalia.

George Ellegood (Cupertino)
This junior’s previous career-high was just 23 points but he had a big night during a 48-46 win over Los Altos as he made six three-pointers and finished with 30 points. His dad, Craig Ellegood, is the head coach of the Pioneers.

Luke Enthoven (Los Altos)
Coming up just two blocks shy of a triple-double, Enthoven had 30 points and 14 rebounds to go along with his eight blocks during a 69-54 win over Milpitas.

Jacob Halderman (Hayfork)
For the second time this season, this senior scored 44 points in a game as he matched his season-high while also grabbing 11 rebounds and seven steals during a 66-51 win over Dunsmuir. This multi-sport athlete is averaging 27.8 points and 11.9 rebounds per game on the court after a football season that saw him rush for 1,538 yards and 17 touchdowns with 134 total tackles on defense.

Gyse Hulsebosch (East Union, Manteca)
While his impressive performances actually came two weeks ago, we wanted to get him in as he set back to back season highs when he scored 40 points during a 79-76 win over Lathrop and two nights later he had 42 points during a 75-70 win over Sierra of Manteca.

Matt Martinez (Oakwood, North Hollywood)
It wasn’t more than 30 points and it was a loss, but Martinez makes the honor roll with 29 points for the Gorillas in their 68-58 defeat at the hands of Encino Holy Martyrs. What he did do was go past 2,000 career points in that game and ended the regular season with 2,023.

Sebastian Much (JSerra, San Juan Capistrano)
Orange Lutheran had a little more than they could handle against Much. The talented big man scored 30 points during a 70-66 win for the Lions over the Lancers in the Trinity League.

Charles Neal (Rancho Mirage)
Making sure the Rattlers would finish a perfect 10-0 in the De Anza League, one of our recent SoCal Players of the Week scored 35 points during a 69-67 win over Twentynine Palms.

A.J. Perry (Canyon, Anaheim)
The Comanches ended the regular season by winning eight of their final 10 games and last week defeated Foothill pf Tustin 78-73 with Perry leading the offense (29 points).

Joel Schneidmiller (Saratoga)
Spiking volleyballs or blocking shots, Schneidmiller is a standout on the court as he had a triple-double during a 48-46 loss to Mountain View. Schneidmiller totaled 14 points, 12 rebounds and 10 blocks. Listed at 6-foot-6, he was the Mercury News boys volleyball player of the year last spring.

Brandon Unaka (Washington Prep, Los Angeles)
The Generals pulled into a first place tie in the Marine League with an impressive 66-62 win over Narbonne of Harbor City as he had a big double-double during the win with 19 points and 21 rebounds.

Enriguez Vallecillo (Avenal)
Helped by making 10-of-13 from the free throw line, Vallecillo scored 32 points as the Buccaneers nipped Dos Palos 57-56. Enriguez leads the CIF Central Section in scoring with a 26.4 average.

Shannon Wafer (North, Bakersfield)
A star for the Stars, Wafer broke the school record for points scored in a career after he scored 26 points against Mira Monte of Bakersfield in a 96-95 loss. He also had 17 points in a return game vs. Mira Monte that North won 65-63 and upped his career total to 1,547 points. Johnny Machado had the previous school record with 1,540 points.

Shanaijah Davison (Pioneer, Woodland)
Nearly outscoring Yuba City on her own, Davidson had 31 points, six steals and five rebounds as the Patriots defeated the Honkers 52-36. In 18 games, this senior captain is averaging 34.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 5.2 steals per game.

Camara Douglas (Mt. Miguel, Spring Valley)
Here’s yet another standout from one of the top programs in the San Diego area that has been led for many years by head coach Robbie Sandoval. In her biggest game of last week, Douglas went for 36 points and nine rebounds in a 74-26 triumph over Granite Hills of El Cajon. She also had 25 points and 17 rebounds in a 76-55 win vs. Mater Dei Catholic of Chula

Vista plus 17 points and 17 rebounds vs. Helix of La Mesa (60-34 win).

Naelene Garcia (Downey)
In a 85-30 win vs. Paramount that enabled the Vikings to wrap up their first San Gabriel Valley League title in school history, this senior guard came through with a career high 30 points. She bounced back after not scoring at all in her previous game.

Anyssia Gibbs (Granite Hills, Apple Valley)
This high-scoring junior lit up the high desert last Friday with a career-high 48 points to lead her team past Silverado of Victorville 75-50. She also made a career-high nine 3-point baskets. Gibbs has been one of the state’s top scorers all season and headed into the CIF Southern Section playoffs averaging 30.2 ppg. She’s led the Desert Sky League in all statistical categories (except turnovers). In addition to the scoring, Gibbs was at 11.8 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 9.0 steals per game.

Hannah Hurley (Kern Valley, Lake Isabella)
The standout sophomore, who sat out her previous game vs. Frazier Mountain to nurse an injury, came out hot on last Friday scoring the first 12 points for the Lady Broncs in an eventual 67-50 win vs. Rosamond. Hurley finished with a game high 31 points and had four assists and six rebounds. Freshman teammate Aliyah Johnson had 29 points and nine rebounds in the same game.

Angel Jackson (Salesian, Richmond)
Just a sophomore, she came up two points shy of her third triple-double this season as she scored eight points to go along with 10 rebounds and 10 blocked shots during a 65-32 win over Hercules. The game before she matched her season-high with 21 points during a 70-65 loss to Sacred Heart Cathedral of San Francisco.

Kayla Konrad (Valencia)
Make it five straight league titles in a row for the Vikings with the last four including Konrad on the squad. In a 79-21 win last week over Hart of Newhall, Konrad was stellar with 39 points to set a career best. Konrad also came within two points of tying the Foothill League record of 41 set in 1990. She will play next at UC Davis.
Destiny Littleton (Bishop’s, La Jolla)
For the third time this season, she scored over 60 points in a game. Littleton also outscored Horizon Christian Academy of San Diego on her own as she scored 61 points during the 81-51 win. Littleton also had a triple-double with 32 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists during a 81-51 win over Santa Fe Christian of Solana Beach.

Austyn Masuno (Oxford Academy)
This sophomore center has had several big games this season for the Academy League champions, including last week which saw her score 17 points and grab 23 rebounds as the Patriots extended their winning streak to seven games with a 45-34 win over Whitney of Cerritos. The Patriots are the No. 2 seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 5AA playoffs.

Hannah McArthur (La Habra)
Selected by OC Varsity as its player of the week, this senior center had three double-doubles in one week with her biggest performance coming during a loss to Sunny Hills of Fullerton. In that game, she scored 27 points and grabbed 18 rebounds during the 52-51 loss in overtime. McArthur came back with 22 points and 18 rebounds the next night against the Lancers to win a battle for third-place in the Freeway League that clinched third a playoff spot.

Gabrielle Patton (Hayfork)
One of the leading shot-blockers in the state, Patton had her fifth game this season with at least 10 blocks when she blocked 10 to go with eight points and eight rebounds during a 47-44 loss to Tulelake. For the season, this senior center is averaging 13.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.2 blocks per game.

Ashanti Sticklen (Kennedy, Richmond)
If you go see the Eagles play, it is hard to miss this 6-foot-1 freshman who has made an impact early on in her high school career. Sticklen had two career-highs during a 65-21 win against Richmond as she scored 14 points and grabbed 18 rebounds to go along with seven blocks. In 18 games played this season, she is averaging 11.5 rebounds and 5.8 blocks per game.

Perris 4 9 14 15 — 42
G. Hills 12 22 12 12 — 58

Name: Anyssia Gibbs
Sport: Basketball
School: Granite Hills High School
Grade: Junior

This week's accomplishment: Gibbs broke the school record for points in a game with 48 against Silverado on Friday. She also put up 18 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists against Barstow on Wednesday.

What do you like most about your sport: I like the fact that in my sport there are always more records to break and accomplishments to meet. There's never a time where you can say "That's as far as I can get." There's always more.

How long have you been playing your sport and how did you get started: I began playing basketball in elementary school. I'm pretty sure it was second grade. When my dad noticed that I really did like it he began to get involved, teaching me new things and it went up from there.

Pregame ritual: Before the game, I like to go home by myself and get in the zone. No one's there so I can talk to God out loud with no interruption and get mentally prepared for the game.

Most memorable sports moment: I've had many memorable moments but the most memorable is probably in my last game against Silverado. I had 48 points and fouled out with probably four minutes left in the game, and when I got my fifth foul the crowd went wild. You would have thought a celebrity had just walked in.

If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be and why: I wouldn't want to be anyone but me. No one can be a better me than I can, so I wouldn't change that.
Something most people don't know about you: Many people assume that I'm just this arrogant, prideful, selfish person and actually contrary to popular belief I'm really humble. I give all the glory to God regarding everything, and I'm not the egotistical person that I'm made out to be.

How would you spend $1 million: If I got $1 million, I'd probably contribute a portion of it to my church and set some aside for a rainy day. The majority of it would go to my family. I'd make sure they had everything they needed, bills paid and stuff like that.

Where would you go if you could travel anywhere in the world: I'd probably go to Europe. I really like Italian cuisine so maybe there. Or maybe Great Britain.

If you had an extra hour every day, how would you spend it: I'd spend an extra hour a day perfecting my eyebrows.

What superpower do you wish you had: I wish I could read minds. I'd love to see the difference between what people say and what they're actually thinking.

Favorite sports team: Male: Cleveland Cavaliers; Female: Minnesota Lynx
Favorite athlete: Male: LeBron James — he's my best friend; Female: Maya Moore
Favorite superhero: None
Favorite TV show: "Star" and "Law & Order: SVU"
Favorite movie: "Hidden Figures"
Favorite song: "Breathe Into Me Oh Lord" by Fred Hammond. I love listening to it before games because it reminds me where I get my ability from.
Favorite meal: Doughnuts
Favorite local restaurant: Neil's Donuts
Favorite app: I play Tetris a lot, but my favorite social media app is SnapChat @miss.lbj)">(@miss.lbj)

Prep Girls Basketball: Barstow outlasts Granite Hills to secure outright DSL championship

APPLE VALLEY — Mark Fraser admits that his Barstow girls basketball team might be just the second most talented team in the Desert Sky League.
Fortunately for Fraser and the Aztecs, even if that assessment is true, talent and results don't necessarily go hand in hand.
Barstow edged Granite Hills 47-41 Wednesday on the road to wrap up the outright DSL title for the first time since 2010.
Barstow (17-6) currently sits atop the league with an 10-1 record with one game to go in the regular season. Barstow closes out the season at home against Adelanto on Friday.

But just because the record looks dominant doesn't mean the journey hasn't been a battle. The Aztecs needed a modest second half rally to put Granite Hills (12-7, 5-6 DSL) away after holding on to beat the Cougars by just a point in their last meeting.
"I'm going to be honest with you. This year has been exhausting," said Fraser, the Barstow coach. "We are probably the second best team in the league. Arguably, Granite can say they are better than us. They literally beat us and gave us the second game we played them and they had us tonight too. Just our wherewithal paid off.

"We are the DSL champs, but I'll tell you we earned every bit of it," Fraser said. "There's no doubt that these girls fought and they had to take it. No one gave it to us."
Granite Hills took control of the game in the second quarter. The Cougars limited Barstow to just four points for the quarter on their way to a 22-20 lead at halftime.
Then Granite Hills started the second half on a 8-4 run and opened a six-point lead on Barstow. But that was as big as the lead got.
Barstow sophomore Amanda Wilson tied the game at 3:21 with about minute left in the third quarter. Senior Tasha Jackson gave Barstow a two-point edge before the end of the third quarter and the Aztecs didn't trail again. Senior Annemarie Hernandez, who tied for the team lead with 12 points, made it a two-possession game at 43-39 with about three and half minutes left.

"Honestly, I knew we were going to get it together eventually," Hernandez said. "I knew we had it in us. We start off slow but then we pick it up and it all falls together."
Granite Hills' Ocheanna Evans hit a jumper with 1:10 left to make it a three-point game, but the Cougars weren't able to get any closer than that. They struggled at the foul line late in the game, making just 5 of 12 free throws in the fourth quarter.

"The game before they beat us by one," Granite Hills coach Robert Gibbs said. "This game we didn't make our free throws. They didn't give up. They played through it made a couple baskets down the stretch, got a few tough rebounds on us and that's what it boils down to."

Brooke Fraser also scored 12 points for Barstow and Inayalena Paopao added 11 points.
Anyssia Gibbs led Granite Hills with 18 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists and eight steals. Kayla Cady had 13 points, six rebounds, four assists and six steals and Evans chipped in four points, 17 rebounds and three steals.

Gibbs finished that game with 15 points, 16 rebounds, 11 steals, 10 blocks and nine assists.
