Hopkins girls basketball too much for Wayzata, extend winning streak to 64 games

The Hopkins Royals girls basketball team defeated the Wayzata Trojans, 102-52, Tuesday evening at Wayzata High School. Hopkins has now won 64 consecutive games.


Hopkins showed just how talented they are against the Trojans. After losing Paige Bueckers, the number ranked high school girls basketball player last year, to the University of Connecticut, one would think that Hopkins would be in for a dip in talent.

But Hopkins is now led by star juniors Maya Nnaji and Amaya Battle. The Royals also include great players like sophomore Taylor Woodson, sophomore Nu Nu Agara, junior Alayna Contreras, and freshman Liv McGill.

Nnaji led the way with 25 points, followed by 18 from McGill. But, the balanced attack continued with 16 points from Contreras, 13 points from Woodson, 12 points from Battle, and 10 points from Agara. Behind a balanced offense, the Royals led 61-22 at halftime.

Wayzata is led by junior guard Mara Braun, who is committed to the University of Minnesota.

Hopkins improves to 2-0 on the season, winning by an average of 42 points per contest.
