Editor’s note: The Deseret News picks the MVPs, but the remainder of the all-state teams are based on coaches' votes. Here’s a more in-depth look at all of the first-, second- and third-teamers, including a scouting report comment from an opposing coach.

Kemery Martin, Corner Canyon

Ms. Basketball
Sr., 6-0, Guard
2018-2019 statistics
21.3 points per game

47 points at Brighton on Jan. 31
Opposing coach scouting report
“I’m not sure the state of Utah is going to see a player of Kemery Martin’s caliber for a very, very, long time. If ever. She has set a new standard for what an elite player looks like. If I could create the formula for a perfect basketball player, it would basically be a carbon copy of Kemery. She’s long, but she’s quick. She’s strong, but has unreal coordination and body-control to add on top of that. She can finish at the rim with such efficiency, but she can torch you from NBA range before you can blink. Kemery makes everything she does look smooth and effortless. She’s so tough to game plan for, and I have no doubt college coaches are going to feel the same way for years to come.”

Lealani Falatea, East

5A MVP

15.0 points per game
2.6 rebounds per game
1.8 assists per game
2.2 steals per game
Season high
24 points vs. Murray on Feb. 5
Opposing coach scouting report
“She loves the right-to-left crossover step-back 3-point shot to a fault, and is an extremely skilled deep shooter with unlimited range and has the ability to finish on drives to the rim. She has a higher percentage shooting from the left-wing area which must be taken away. In my opinion Nani has an extremely high potential to her game which hasn’t yet been realized, and I look forward to seeing her accomplish great things throughout her junior and senior seasons.”

Jaeden Vaifanua, Corner Canyon

5A First Team
Sr., 6-1, Center
2018-2019 statistics
17.6 points per game
9.8 rebounds per game
2.8 bpg
2.0 steals per game
Season high
32 points vs. East on Feb. 23
Opposing coach scouting report
"Jaeden is a versatile player who effects the game in many ways. Defensively her length and good positioning allowed her to alter or block many shots, making it tough for teams to work the ball inside. She dominated the boards on both ends of the floor, her offensive rebounds often resulted in a basket. Offensively she has the ability to go inside and out. Her soft touch around the rim helped her to score inside while her quick and high release on her shot made her extremely hard to guard on the outside. Jaeden is a great player with a bright future."

2018 — 5A Second Team
2017 — 4A Second Team

Shalyn Fano, Timpview

5A First Team
Sr., 6-0, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
19.6 points per game
9.7 rebounds per game
2.8 assists per game
1.4 steals per game
Season high
29 points at Jordan on Jan. 31
Opposing coach scouting report
“She is a polished four-year varsity starter which has developed extensive skill sets which makes her a threat anywhere on the floor. She prefers to drive hard left before spinning back to her right-hand finish but is capable in completing her spin move either direction. When pushing the fast break, she prefers to finish on the right side with a rip through or sprint through finish which must be walled off to force her laterally. Finally, she loves to work from the middle of the floor offensively to easily attack off the dribble but we must defend the left wing and top of the arc as her perimeter shooting is extremely efficient even with a hand in her face. In my opinion Shay is one of the top 5 talents in the state of Utah and arguably in the conversation for the best small forward in the state. It’s been challenging, exciting, and yet, so much fun preparing for her twice each season these past four years and watching her develop over this time I can attest to the amount of heart, dedication and effort she has put into her game on a daily basis has surely paid off.”

“Isis Beh was a matchup nightmare for our team. She is so athletic and strong. Her leadership and ability to get everyone to play at higher level was amazing.”

Emily Isaacson, Box Elder

2018-2019 statistics
16.9 points per game
10.1 rebounds per game
2.8 assists per game
2.1 steals per game
Season high
26 points at Corner Canyon on Dec. 28
Opposing coach scouting report
“Emily Isaacson is an excellent player. Teams have run a box-and-one on her, they have double-teamed her, they have done everything possible to stop her and she still gets around 17 points per game. She can shoot the 3-pointer, she can hit the mid-range shot, she can go to the basket. She leads her team in rebounding and is hard to keep her off the boards. She is one of the finest players in the state and definitely will take her game to the next level.”

28 points vs. Corner Canyon on Dec. 7
Opposing coach scouting report
“This girl is a silent killer. Her shot is consistent and she sees the court so well that you don't realize she is killing you until it is too late. She has great ball-handling skills and speed that her strength is getting to the basket, but if you play the drive too much, she will shoot it in your face and swoosh it. Great fluid athlete, who will do a great job at the next level.”

Opposing coach scouting report
“Preparing for Ella is a challenge. She can score, defend and create opportunities for herself and teammates. Her presence on the court is visible from blocking shots, steals, rebounding, or making the extra pass. Her length and athleticism is hard to compete against, but that is what made it fun to watch her play. She will do great playing basketball at the next level.”

10.8 points per game
5.4 rebounds per game
3.2 assists per game
2.7 steals per game
Season high
24 points at Hunter on Nov. 27
Opposing coach scouting report
“Ally Blackham is a guard with tremendous ability to get to the rim. Her size and athleticism create a huge upside for her. She is able to spread the defense with her shooting but also has the ability to really attack the rim in both transition and the half-court game. She has a big upside and will continue to improve the next few years.”

Whitney Banz, West

Jr., 5-6, Guard
2018-2019 statistics

Opposing coach scouting report
“Whitney Banz has been a problem for us the past few years. She plays with heart and grit no matter what the score is. I’m impressed how hard she plays on both sides of the ball. She is a great kid off the court that has made me a fan of her.”

2017 — 5A Honorable Mention

Margarita Satini, East

5A Second Team
Sr., 5-7, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
10.8 points per game
5.4 rebounds per game
3.2 assists per game
2.7 steals per game
Season high
24 points vs. Olympus on Feb. 12
Opposing coach scouting report
“Margarita is a very deceptive basketball player. She quietly controls the game from running the offense to making her teammates better. Her unique passing ability with precision shooting makes her extremely hard to game plan for. When you think she is not looking to score she will take it to the basket or step back and hit a 3-pointer. It seems time and time again she makes big plays when her team needs it the most. Defensively she was always in the passing lanes making it difficult to start an offense. Margarita, was the heart and soul of the East Leopards.”

2018-2019 statistics
11.5 points per game
7.0 rebounds per game
Season high
20 points vs. Box Elder on Feb. 21
Opposing coach scouting report
“Tori was a great post player that had great touch around the rim. She understood positioning and how to catch the ball in spots on the floor where she can be successful. On top of that she was a great rebounder and cleaned up the glass. Her size made it difficult to guard and she was great on the defensive end not by just blocking shots but altering many others as well. She was definitely someone that makes an impact anytime she is on the floor.”

Kaija Glasker, Highland

5A Second Team
Jr., 5-10, Forward
2018-2019 statistics
13.0 points per game
6.5 rebounds per game

Opposing coach scouting report
“Morgan Reeder is that type of player that everyone would love to have on their own team. She shoots the ball well, rebounds well, has lots of assists, gets lots of steals. One of her greatest strengths is she plays great defense. What more can you say about her. She is the complete package.”

Valerie Kunzler, Farmington

Season high
19 points vs. Viewmont on Feb. 5
Opposing coach scouting report
“Valerie is a great shooter that can knock big shots with little space. She has the ability to change the feeling of a game in two shots. Defenses have to have her mind as they prepare a game plan. She can stretch the floor and open opportunities for her teammates or make you pay if you leave her to help inside.”

Alyssa Blanck, Olympus

5A Third Team
Fr., 6-1, Forward/Guard
2018-2019 statistics
11.5 points per game
7.4 rebounds per game
3.1 assists per game
Season high
23 points at Skyridge on Dec. 14
Opposing coach scouting report
“Alyssa Blanck is a really tough matchup. She’s got the length and height to play a post, but can shoot from distance and handle the ball like a guard. She’s fearless, and has a terrific, natural feel for the game and she’s highly competitive. She is going to be a dominant player.”

Skylee Gray, Skyridge

5A Third Team
Sr., 5-8, G
2018-2019 statistics

20 points at Maple Mountain on Jan. 25
Opposing coach scouting report
“Skylee's length and athleticism make her a great player on anyone’s team. She has a great 3-point shot and if you zone her she will make you pay with great range. Her quickness and athleticism on defense make her really good at contesting every shot, and creating a lot of problems for the opposing team.”

Faith Fitzgerald, Wasatch

5A Third Team
Sr., 5-2, G
2018-2019 statistics
7.4 points per game

16 points vs. Bountiful on Dec. 28
Opposing coach scouting report
“The floor general of the Wasps, she was the fuel for her team. She was a pest on defense and made life difficult for opposing guards. She was unselfish and made her teammates better. She was a player who showed a lot of heart on the floor. She created the tempo for her squad and as she went her team went. She created many opportunities for herself and her teammates. She's definitely going to give teams a breath of relief when she isn't on the floor next year. A fun player to watch.”

Precious Faamausili, East

5A Third Team
Jr., 6-2, F/C
2018-2019 statistics
8.4 points per game
5.3 rebounds per game
Season high
21 points at West on Jan. 8
Opposing coach scouting report
“Precious is a really athletic, long player that is tough to guard. She gets a ton of offensive rebounds and either converts them to buckets herself, or it creates those open kick-out 3s for her teammates. She’s hard to score against and she ends up blocking or altering a lot of shots because of her length.”
