DeShields returns to action

UConn recruiting target Diamond DeShields was back on the court for her Norcross (Ga.) team on Tuesday night after missing the final six games of the regular season with an injured left wrist.

The junior wing did not start but did have 10 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and three blocked shots as Norcross defeated Mountain View 52-38 in the 7-AAAAA quarterfinals. With the win Norcross advances to Friday's regional semifinals. Norcross will play the winner of tonight's game between Collins Hill (yes, the same school where UConn's all-time leading scorer Maya Moore played her high school ball) and Mill Creek.

UConn signee Morgan Tuck and her Bolingbrook (Ill.) team also opened postseason play on Tuesday. It wasn't much of a game as Bolingbrook defeated Downers Grove North either 92-19 or 92-17 depending on which website you happen to visit. Bolingbrook will play West Aurora on Thursday in the final of the Bolingbrook 4A regional.

Finally, UConn coach Geno Auriemma was in attendance at the Ridgeview/Mira Monte game on Tuesday night. Auriemma was there to see 6-foot-3 Ridgeview junior Erica McCall play. McCall had 17 points, 12 rebounds and six blocked shots.
