Adding to the same, she registered forty double-doubles and seven triple-doubles averaging 21 points, 7.7 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and five shots per game. Just at the age of 14, the BYU offered her a scholarship looking at her performance in the camp.
At the end of her high school, she won the 2017 Gatorade State Player of the Year and 2018 Arizona Republic State Player of the Year. Then, the athlete headed out to accept the challenges of the college competition and joined the BYU in the 2018-19 season.
As a freshman, the guard helped her team win the WCC Tournament Title and 2019 NCAA Tournament second round. That's not all; she was the all-time freshman record-setter for scoring.
However, things went downhill for the top scorer in mid-July in 2018 as she suffered from an ACL and lateral meniscus tear in the knee. Shaylee went onto have a successful surgery but was bound to miss the 2019-20 season due to the recovery period.
