Elite Girls 50: Counting down best Arizona high school girls basketball players in 2022-23 (Arizona Republic, 12/14/2022)

1. Shay Ijiwoye, Phoenix Desert Vista, G, Jr.

Ijiwoye is the state’s most talented player and the player most recruited by high major schools. She’s a 5-foot-6 point guard with strong upper body strength to initiate and accept contact on her penetration drives and rebounding, stellar ball-handling skills, cheetah-like speed in the open floor, solid jumpshooter and finisher in the paint, and great court vision to find open teammates. Ijiwoye averaged 18 points, 6.2 boards, and 4.3 assists last season for the now-defunct Arizona Elite Prep. This season, Ijiwoye is playing for the loaded Desert Vista squad (5-1) that has four of its starting five in the Elite 50 list. She was named to the prestigious La Jolla Country Day (San Diego, Cali.) Sweet 16 All-Tournament Team earlier this month.
