Elizabeth Williams dishes on Breanna Stewart

I just got back from Cameron Indoor Stadium for a sit-down interview with Duke freshman phenom Elizabeth Williams. While the main purpose of the interview was to do an advance on Williams and UConn freshman Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis, I did have a chance to talk to Williams about UConn recruit Breanna Stewart.

The two post players were teammates on the U.S. U-16 team in 2009, the U-17 squad in 2010 and last summer helped the U.S. win the U-19 World Championship,

"She has unlimited potential, she is a great player and person," said Williams of Stewart, who led the U.S. U-19 team in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots. "I was just talking to her yesterday. She is a great kid and is a really good player. She is a quick learner and she is eager to get better, definitely."

Stewart, a senior at Cicero-North Syracuse (N.Y.) High, was named the USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year, the first time an active high school player won that prestigious honor.

"To earn such an award at such a young age really shows the type of player that she is and all types of people are starting to see that," Williams said.

As of Thursday, there were about 5,000 tickets sold for tomorrow's game being played in the 9,314 seat Cameron Indoor Stadium. While tickets are being steadily sold, it might be pushing it to expect a sellout for the nationally-televised game.
