This past September I took a look at the top returning, most efficient, assist leaders heading into the 2020 season.   With the season behind us let us take a look at who the most efficient assists leaders actually turned out to be.  We will also learn which players continued to be among the best in the state.  Do note that all statistics studied were mined from the Kansas Girls Basketball statistics section of MaxPreps.

In September’s report all but three of the top ten were 2020s.  Then Highland Park point guard Ariayana GrassityAriayanaGrassity5'4" | PFTopeka | 2020StateKS rang up an astonishing 136 assists in 20 games and lead the state with a 2.96 assists-to-turnovers ratio.  None of the other top ten registered more than 100.

This update includes returners Grassity, Cheney’s Lexi ClineLexiCline5'6" | PGCheney | 2021StateKS, Rural Vista’s Hannah Riedy, and Topeka’s Talayah ThomasTalayahThomas5'6" | CGTopeka | 2022StateKS.  Several others from the previous list did not make this one for reasons ranging from not playing enough games, their assists per game ration was too low, or - through no fault of their own - not enough games were reported to reach the 20 game minimum. Players were selected using the same criteria
