Three finalists named for N.D. Miss Basketball

JAMESTOWN, N.D.—Three finalists have been chosen for the North Dakota Miss Basketball award.

Seniors Anna Holen from LaMoure-Litchville-Marion, North Star's Stephanie Miller and Raegan Linster of Fargo Davies have been nominated by the North Dakota Associated Press Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

The award will be announced after the Class A girls state championship game on Saturday, March 10, at North Dakota State's Scheels Center.

Linster, a 5-foot-10 forward, led the Eagles to their first East Region championship in girls basketball last Saturday, posting per-game averages of 16 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.1 steals.

Holen, a 5-8 guard, is a two-time first team all-state honoree who reached 2,001 career points. The Region 3 senior athlete of the year led the Loboes to a third-place state tournament finish as a freshman in 2015, while guiding the team to 95 victories since her eighth-grade season.

Miller, a 5-7 guard for North Star, helped guide the Bearcats to a pair of Region 4 tournament championships and an overall record of 105-22 as a five-year starter. She posted per-game averages of 21.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.2 steals during her senior season.
