Moriah Jefferson leads THESA Riders to regional title

As promised here's some info on how UConn signee Moriah Jefferson did in the Texas Home School Basketball Championships thanks to her coach Alan Burt.

Jefferson played in just the first quarter of the first two games as the Riders rolled to convincing wins over Victoria and Sulphur Springs. Jefferson had 17 points as the Riders defeated Abilene 67-47 in the semifinals. In the championship game she had 25 points, four rebounds, three assists, five steals, one turnover and three 3-pointers in a 58-39 win over the Lubbock Titans. The tournament also served as a regional qualifier for the nationals which begin on Mar. 19 in Springfield, Mo. She earned a spot on the all-tournament team and was named to the all-state and all-region teams.

Voting for the Naismith national player and coach of the year awards began today.

Bria Hartley and Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis are among 32 players on the ballot while Geno Auriemma is one of 32 coaches (including eight from the Big East) up for the national award.
