BasketballAaliyah

Bre Bolden

South River, senior, guard

A smooth 5-foot-11 shooting guard who can also handle the ball, Bolden averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds last season and will lead the Seahawks this winter. She signed early with the College of Charleston in South Carolina.

Dyzhanay Burton

City, junior, guard

The 5-3 point guard is a third-year starter and savvy team leader who has an exceptional eye for the cutters, excels at running the floor and also led the Knights in scoring last season. She averaged 15.4 points and 4.9 assists as a sophomore.

Camille Calhoun

Archbishop Spalding, senior, forward

A powerful 5-11 post presence, Calhoun faced constant double teams last season, often from much taller players, and still averaged 12 points, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks. She signed early with Virginia Commonwealth.

Danielle Edwards

McDonogh, sophomore, guard

The floor leader for last year's IAAM A Conference champions, Edwards showed poise beyond her years with an assist-to-turnover ratio of almost 2 to 1. An All-Metro second-team selection, the 5-6 point guard averaged 10.2 points per game, and had 81 assists and 115 steals last season.

A'Lexus Harrison

Digital Harbor, senior, forward-guard

A two-time All-Metro selection who committed to Maryland as a freshman, Harrison averaged 15 points and 16 rebounds and has over 1,000 of each in her career. The 6-1 dynamo can do almost anything offensively, from driving hard to the hoop to hitting the 3-pointer.

Bri Jones

Aberdeen, senior, center

Last season's All-Metro Player of the Year led the No. 1 Eagles to their first girls basketball state championship. At 6-3 with soft hands and excellent positioning, Jones averaged 23.5 points, 11.6 rebounds and 4.2 blocks. She has 1,627 career points and has signed with Maryland.

Tyshell King

St. Frances, senior, guard

An All-Metro second-team selection two years ago, King continued to stand out on a struggling team last year. The 5-10 guard averaged 16.5 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. She signed early to play for Georgetown.

Taylor Murray

Annapolis Area Christian, sophomore, guard

An All-Metro second-team pick as a freshman, the 5-6 guard led the Eagles to the IAAM C Conference championship and a school record for wins (25). Murray set eight individual single-season school records while averaging 18.9 points, 4.7 assists and 7 steals last season.

Emily Russo

Glenelg, senior, guard

A two-time All-Metro selection, the 5-6 lefty excelled at both ends of the court. In addition to defending the opposition's top player, she averaged 16.2 points and shot 60 percent form the floor. She needs 35 points to hit 1,000 in her career. Russo is set to play in college at UMBC next year.

Dionna White

Milford Mill, sophomore, forward-guard

The first freshman to make the All-Metro first team in nine years, the 5-8 swing player averaged 17.9 points and 6.8 rebounds in leading the Millers to their best record in the 63-year history of the program. She led the team in every major statistic.
