File this one under too close to call between girls’ basketball stars Mir McLean (Roland Park) and Angel Reese (St. Frances). McLean (18.3 points, 12.9 rebounds per game) led the Reds to the IAAM A Conference regular-season championship in 2019, while Reese (22.6 points, 19.3 rebounds) and the Panthers won the conference tournament.

McLean and Reese will play hoops at UConn and Maryland, respectively, after graduating in the spring.
