ALL-COUNTY FIRST TEAM

Victorie Franklin, Sr., F, Bloomfield Hills

STATS: 14 ppg., 4.95 rpg., 3 spg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; BCAM’s Best Class A; All-OAA White

Franklin made a big step forward in her senior season, and finished as Bloomfield Hills’ all-time leader in 3-point field goals made. She showed up in big games, too, notching 27 against North Farmington and 23 in a win over eventual Class C champion Detroit Edison.

Maddie Beck, Jr., G/F Clarkston

STATS: 18 ppg., 5 rpg, 3 spg., 2 apg., 1 bpg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; BCAM’s Best Class A honorable mention; All-OAA Red

Beck went from just being on the floor to being oftentimes the best player on the floor as a junior, after committing herself to basketball in the offseason. (Before that, she was a potential Division I softball recruit.) Ended up as the second-leading scorer in the OAA Red, as well as drawing the defensive assignment of the opponent’s best player.

Kayla Luchenbach, Jr., F, Clarkston

STATS: 16 ppg., 9 rpg, 2 apg, 2 spg, 2 bpg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; BCAM’s Best Class A honorable mention; BCAM academic all-state; All-OAA Red

While others have led the Wolves in scoring in Luchenbach’s three years on varsity, she’s been the constant rock, averaging a near-double-double for her career. The Oakland University commit had some of her best games in big games, going for 28 points, 21 rebounds in a Roundball Classic win over Cass Tech, and a combined 43 points, 21 rebounds in two games against eventual Class A semifinalist Southfield A&T.

Amanda Sape, Sr., C, Bloomfield Hills

STATS: 13 ppg., 9 rpg., 3 bpg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; BCAM’s Best Class A honorable mention; All-OAA White

At 6-foot-3, Sape was one of the toughest match-ups for the majority of high school defenders throughout her career. The Kent State signee finishes as Bloomfield Hills’ career leader in points, rebounds and blocks.

Mallory Barrett, Sr., G, Milford

STATS: 16.5 ppg., 9.5 rpg., 3.6 spg., 2.5 apg., 0.5 bpg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; all-KLAA; BCAM academic all-state

Had 16 double-doubles, and scored 20 or more four times. Finished third in program history in scoring (814) and assists (171), first in steals (267), fourth in 3-pointers made (72).

A two-time all-KLAA performer, Barrett was also honorable mentionAP all-state, and BCAM academic all-state, and will run track and cross country for the University of Michigan.

ALL-COUNTY SECOND TEAM

Quinoche ‘Sha’ Carter, Jr., Birmingham Groves

STATS: 19.1 ppg., 8.8 rpg., 5.9 spg., 3.6 apg., 1.4 bpg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; BCAM’s Best Class A; BCAM academic All-State; All-OAA Gold

Carter scored in double digits in all 20 games for Groves, with five double-doubles and 12 triple-doubles. She’s reportedly got several Division I offers on the table, but has transferred out of the Groves program, and will finish high school in North Carolina. She was a three-time captain for Groves, leading the Falcons to back-to-back first-place finishes in the OAA Gold, and a school-record 18 wins this season.

Tylar Bennett, Sr., Birmingham Detroit Country Day

STATS: 8.7 ppg., 6.5 rpg., 3.2 bpg, 0.96 spg.

HONORS: AP Class B all-state honorable mention; BCAM’s Best Class B

The 6-foot-4 Bennett went from being simply a defensive presence as an underclassmen, to developing into a viable (and even deadly at times) post option for the Yellowjackets. Still changed games with her wingspan, though, altering far more shots than the 83 she blocked in her senior season. Bennett is bound for Clemson next fall.

Maggie Rogers, Sr., Rochester Adams

STATS: 12.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg., 2.6 spg., 1.0 bpg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; All-OAA Red

One of the area’s best shooters, Rogers scored in double digits in 16 of 22 games, with three double-doubles (North Farmington, Clarkston, Rochester). Finished with 844 points in her three-year varsity career. Will play soccer at Western Michigan.

Olivia Moore, Soph., Birmingham Marian

STATS: 12.6 ppg., 2.5 rpg., 2.3 apg., 2.0 spg.

HONORS: AP Class A all-state honorable mention; CHSL All-Catholic

The floor general of a sometimes scoring-challenged (but stout defensive) Marian club, Moore helped lead the Mustangs to the CHSL A-B finals, and a district championship, before bowing out in regionals to the defending Class A champs.

Janara Flowers, Jr., Walled Lake Western

STATS: 12.5 ppg., 80% FT

HONORS: All-KLAA, KLAA scholar athlete

Flowers was the go-to scorer on a very methodical, purposely low-scoring Western offense, and drew the opposing team’s best defender every night. Western’s captain, she helped lead the Warriors to a 20-win season (second-most in program history; 23 is the record), their first district title since 1988, and their first in a regional game since 1983. Already signed with Indiana State.
