Two UConn recruiting targets squaring off tonight

Highly-touted juniors Taya Reimer and Stephanie Mavunga will be the centers of attention when their teams meet today.

Reimer has led Hamilton Southeastern of Fishers, Ind. to a 5-0 start but the toughest test to date will come tonight at 7:30 p.m. when they travel to meet the Mavunga-led Brownsburg (Ind.) team.

While I was unable to locate season stats for Reimer, Mavunga is averaging 21.8 points (on 63 percent shooting), 10.2 rebounds and 3.6 blocked shots.

They were teammates on the U.S. U-16 national team as Mavunga averaged 10.6 points and 6.4 rebounds with Reimer contributing 4.8 and 5 rebounds as the United States squad swept through five games to win the FIBA Americas 16 title in June.

Jim, off the record, do you know if UConn is actively recruiting other true centers - besides Taya Reimer and Stephanie Mavunga - to replace Dolson when she graduates? Hope UConn signs a very good one for 2012-13 or 2013-14. Thanks.

Reimer is the post UConn wants the most out of next year's class. I know they've looked at the Russell kid from Oregon but I have no real sense of how seriously they are going to pursue her. They are bringing in Breanna Stewart and Morgan Tuck next year so regardless of what future recruits are signed, they won't be lacking for posts after Stefanie Dolson graduates.
