Death, taxes, Centennial girls basketball championships.

After four years in a row of winning the title, there’s not a high school athlete today that doesn’t know Nevada girls basketball without Centennial above all others.

Eboni Walker doesn’t want this year to be the first.

The five-star wing, ranked No. 43 in the country and No. 9 at her position, is now listed by ESPN at six feet tall. After she signed with Arizona State University on Thursday, Sun Devils head coach Charli Turner Thorne called her a scorer, rebounder and “tenacious” defender. Last year, Walker averaged 12.5 points and 8.5 rebounds. She wasn’t even the only player on Centennial to be named to the All-State first team, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Justice Ethridge graduated, but three-star Melanie Isbell, who signed with UNLV, remains.

So does sophomore Taylor Bigby, who had 15 scholarship offers as of Nov. 15, according to Review-Journal reporter Sam Gordon. Daejah Phillips is the fourth starter returning, leading to a stacked cast that may not look at that different from last season.
