2019 Scorebook Live All-State Girls Basketball
Noble, a 5-11 guard, is one of the most athletic players in the state. Her defense and rebounding were a big reason why Mt. Spokane went 24-2 and advanced to the 3A state championship game. She pulled down a remarkable 20 rebounds — including 10 offensive boards — in the Wildcats’ 37-35 title game loss to Prairie.
Patchen (No. 32) was named the MVP of the 1B girls basketball state tournament after leading the Wildcats to their 10th 1B state title in the last 11 years. Patchen, a 5-9 guard, had 11 points and 5 rebounds in Colton’s 51-43 victory over Pomeroy in the 1B championship game. She won three state championships and only lost seven games over her four-year career at Colton. Patchen plans to play for Walla Walla Community College next season.
Hull (No. 22) is another in a long list of small school underclassmen doing big things. A 6-2 forward, Hull averaged more than 17 points per game during the season as La Salle rolled to a perfect 27-0 record. In the 1A state championship game she had 19 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Lightning to a 56-49 win over Lynden Christian.
Burnham, a 6-foot forward, led Liberty to the 2B state championship game, where they lost to Tri-Cities Prep. She averaged more than 25 points and 8 rebounds a game for the Lancers this season, leading them to a 23-5 record. Over four game at Spokane Arena, she averaged 16.5 points and 9.8 rebounds and was named first team all-tournament.
Dykstra led the Lyncs to the brink of back-to-back 1A state titles, falling just short in the title game to La Salle. Dykstra, a 5-10 guard, is a lockdown defender and outstanding 3-point shooter. In a matchup with defending 3A state champion Gig Harbor and reigning 3A player of the year Brynna Maxwell in December, Dykstra held Maxwell in check and led the Lyncs to a 56-41 victory.
Maldonado had a stellar four-year career at Sunnyside, and it was capped off by being named the MVP and defensive player of the year in the 4A Columbia Basin Big-Nine League. Maldonado, who will play at Santa Clara next season, led Sunnyside to a league and district title and the No. 9 seed in the 4A state tournament. She had 32 points in Sunnyside’s last-second state tournament loss to No. 1 Woodinville.
