Some random facts and figures about the All-Met basketball teams:


The 2011 All-Met boys’ basketball team (Jonathan Newton/WASHINGTON POST)

* Gonzaga guard Nate Britt is just the eighth sophomore to be named All-Met in boys’ basketball since 1957. He joins a very select group: Mike Beasley (Riverdale Baptist, 2005), Chris Wright (St. John’s, 2005), Cliff Hawkins (Potomac, Va., 1998), Adrian Dantley (DeMatha, 1971), Harold Fox (Northwestern, 1966), Willie Allen (Richard Montgomery, 1965), and Fred Hetzel (Landon, 1959).

* St. John’s guard Lindsay Allen is the eighth sophomore to be named All-Met in girls’ basketball since 1985. This is also an elite group, considering that six girls who were named All-Met as sophomores went on to become three-time All-Mets and Players of the Year: Tierra Ruffin-Pratt (T.C. Williams, 2007), Jasmine Thomas (Oakton, 2005), Monica Wright (Forest Park, 2004), Kara Lawson (West Springfield, 1997), Amy Duran (Stone Ridge, 1993) and Penny Moore (Stuart, 1985).

* Montrose Christian put two players on the All-Met first team: senior guard Tyrone Johnson and junior forward Michael Carrera. Since 2000, the Rockville private school has produced 13 All-Mets, more than any other school: Carrera, Johnson, Josh Hairston (2010), Terrence Ross (2009), Mouphtaou Yarou (2009), Terrell Vinson (2008), Adrian Bowie (2007), Kevin Durant (2006), Greivis Vasquez (2006), Uche Echefu (2005), Linas Kleiza (2003), Levi Watkins (2001) and Mohamed Diakite (2000).
