We found out that the AIA season is cancelled on Friday, but we still take a look at some of the top players in every conference. 

There still may be a glimmer of hope the season actually still goes on with a possible re-vote by the AIA committee or having it as an AAU season or the ABCA will just run it like they ran the Section-7 or Border League. 

 

We move over to the top PG’s in 5A. Multiple POY candidates in this group!

 

Here are some of the top ones that will impact their teams:

Tony Elliott JrTonyElliott Jr6'2" | PGDesert Mountain | 2021StateAZ (Desert Mountain) (Pictured) 

-A long and athletic PG has grown his game and height. He plays the passing lanes and can get into the paint and flush it down. He can hit the 3 and he showed off his passing skills this off season.  

Montez TaylorMontezTaylor5'8" | PGWilliams Field | 2021StateAZ (Williams Field)   

-A jet quick PG can score it plus make plays for others. He is a blur in the open court, and arguably the fastest end to end player in the AIA. He uses his lateral quickness to be a ball hawk defensively.

He is tough and fearless from both ends of the court. He has good speed and can defend on the ball with quick feet and hands. He can shoot it from mid to the 3pt line and use a burst to get into the lane.  Ahamed MohamedAhamedMohamed5'10" | PGApollo | 2022StateAZ (Apollo)  -A top-tier two-way PG and shooter. He can pull-up at anytime and he has a shifty handle to get passed his defender. He can make plays for others but he will be leaned on to score it for the Hawks.  Jake LifgrenJakeLifgren6'0" | PGCentennial | 2022StateAZ (Centennial) -Another top scoring lead guard had some monster games in the Border League. He will be one of the main reasons the Coyotes make a deep playoff run, if they do have the season.   Pascal VolzPascalVolz6'0" | PGMcClintock | 2022StateAZ (McClintock) -The pure PG is about ready to breakout. He sees plays developing quickly and is one of the better 5A passers. His athleticism is slowly kicking in and he can shoot it from the perimeter.   Gabe PickensGabePickens5'10" | PGMillennium | 2024StateAZ (Millennium)   -A rare freshman PG starter in a big school is something you don't see often, but Pickens is about to do just that. He has a tight handle and good strength already for his age. He gets through the hole quickly and can find open shooters. He can hit the 3 plus score it inside using his gifts.
