SCNext Top 25 – Best Women’s High School Basketball Teams

Westlake (Georgia) ran the board last year and won the Geico Nationals championship. Graduation and transfers make a repeat highly unlikely.

Sierra Canyon (California) defeated Archbishop Mitty at the CIF Open Division Championships 85-61 thanks to Judea Watkins’ 23 points, 19 rebounds and six assists.

Classen SAS (Okla.) won Division 4A over Tuttle 55-22. Baylor-bound Darianna Littlepage-Buggs had 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Stephen F. Austin-bound Jordan Harrison had 10 points and eight assists.
