Jefferson, Stewart, Tuck to play in WBCA game

UConn's entire incoming freshman class has been selected to play in the WBCA High School All-American Game, which will be played on Mar. 31 at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

Moriah Jefferson, a 5-foot-7 guard from Glenn Heights, Tex., Breanna Stewart, a 6-foot-4 forward from North Syracuse, N.Y., and Morgan Tuck, a 6-foot-2 forward from Bolingbrook, Ill. are among the 20 players named to play in the game. Also, Stewart has been named the WBCA National High School Player of the Year. This is the fifth time in the last seven years that a Connecticut signee has won this award as Stewart joins Maya Moore, Tina Charles, Elena Delle Donne (who never played for the Huskies) and last year's winner Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis as winners of the award.

Barring a stunning turn of events, all three should be named to play in the McDonald's All-American game. That announcement is coming tomorrow from 5-5:30 p.m. during a special on ESPNU.
