Douglas’ Joslin Igo: Wyoming’s Assist Queen [VIDEO]
With a pass that resulted in a lay-up, Douglas senior Joslin Igo became the all-time assists leader in Wyoming High School girls’ basketball history last Saturday.
It’s been a steady progression of new marks for Igo, from single-game to single-season to career record holder.
The one that broke the all-time mark came in the 3A East Regional Final in Cheyenne against Torrington. Igo got a kick-out pass from the right baseline and immediately passed the ball back inside to teammate Lanie Bauersachs. She turned around and made a lay-up with 32 seconds left, and that was the one.

Igo broke the mark of Campbell County High School great Molly Goodrich (Marso). She had 558 career assists from 1994-1998. Ironically, Goodrich went on to coach at Douglas High School for five seasons from 2003-2007 and even won a pair of titles with the Bearcats.
The first assist of Joslin’s career came on Dec. 8, 2017, in a game against Lander. Now, 558 later, she’s No. 1 in state history, according to records kept by wyoming-basketball.com.
Igo also has the single-game and single-season assists records.
Earlier this year, Joslin set a new single-game record with 18 assists against Buffalo in a 67-44 victory on Jan. 22, 2021. That came after a junior year (2019-2020) where Igo tied the single-game record of 15 assists in one contest. She had another game with 14 assists last season.
Recently, Igo topped the single-season record of 171 assists set by Erika Warren of Riverton that was established in the 1999-2000 season. She passed that mark in the northeast regional quadrant title game against Newcastle on March 4, 2021. Igo is now at 180 assists and counting for this season. She came close to breaking that record last season. Joslin accumulated 161s assist before the 2020 Class 3A state tournament. It was canceled due to COVID-19, and thus, she didn’t get to play three additional games last season.
Known for her passing skills, Igo has also surpassed 1,000 points in her prep career. She accomplished that feat just a few weeks ago.
Joslin has left an impressive footprint on Wyoming High School girls’ basketball and will go down as one of the best floor generals in state history.
