RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Sage Surratt of Lincolnton and Mikayla Boykin of Clinton headline the 2016-17 Associated Press all-state high school basketball teams for North Carolina.

Surratt and Clinton were joined by Charlotte Providence's Janelle Bailey and Northern Guilford's Elissa Cunane as the unanimous selections by 14 sports writers across the state in results released Wednesday for the 15-player men's team and the 14-player women's team.

Surratt, a senior guard-forward, was both a unanimous pick and a two-sport selection for the second straight year, dating to his time at East Lincoln. He scored 2,951 points in his career - in state history, trailing only JamesOn Curry, who scored 3,307 - and will play football at Wake Forest.

Boykin is a Duke signee who twice set the North Carolina High School Athletic Association single-game scoring record, topping out with 63 points against Pender County on Jan. 20. She scored an NCHSAA-record 1,159 points this season.
