It’s a bit lopsided.

The 2B Braves, who went undefeated in league, then finished fourth at state, have seven selections, including MVP Sarah Cook.

MVC, which only lost to La Conner and 1A power King’s before going on to claim the 1B hoops crown, have four players and their coach on the list of honorees.

Coupeville, which finished third in the seven-team league, was the only other school to land recognition for more than one player.

Whether playing in Coupeville or Britain, Makana Stone is among the best on the hardwood.

The American assassin scores one more time.

Coupeville High School grad Makana Stone capped a whirlwind first season of overseas basketball by being named Friday to the Women’s National Basketball League Team of the Year in England.

Repping Loughborough University, the former Wolf finished second in WNBL coaches voting.

Harriet Welham, who led Ipswich to the league title, claimed Player of the Year honors for a second-straight season.

Stone, Esther Little of Ipswich, Isi Ozzy-Momodu of CoLA Southwark, and Sitota Gines Espinosa of Reading round out the All-League squad.

Three of the five honorees are from England, with Stone springing from Cow Town, USA, and Gines Espinosa a Spaniard.

Welham, who topped all WNBL scorers at 25.9 points per game, received five first-place votes from coaches, and 40 total points, with Stone edging out Little 24-23 in voting.

After graduating from Coupeville, Josh and Eileen Stone’s daughter had an impressive four-year run at Whitman College in Walla Walla, then headed off to the land of tea and crumpets, basketball in hand.

She had an immediate impact at Loughborough, helping the Riders go 13-6 and finish third in a 10-team league.

Loughborough, which advanced to the semifinals of the postseason tourney, was 13-4 when Stone suited up, and 0-2 without her.

Andre Stone’s lil’ sis hit the shot of the year — banking in a buzzer beater to KO Ipswich in the team’s first meeting — and routinely threw down double-doubles all season.

She finished with 270 points, 231 rebounds, 33 assists, 58 steals, and eight blocked shots.
