Memorable day for future Huskies

It certainly was a Saturday to remember for UConn's incoming recruiting class.

First, Breanna Stewart set a New York Federation Class AA playoff scoring record with 42 points (on 15 of 20 shooting) and tied the single-game record with 23 rebounds (matching her own record) to go with six blocked shots in Cicero-North Syracuse's 80-55 win over Nazareth in the semifinals. The win moves Cicero-North Syracuse into today's championship game against Murry Bergtraum.

Shortly after Stewart wrapped up her breathtaking performance, Moriah Jefferson took the court for the final time as a member the THESA Riders. Jefferson had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead THESA to a 62-51 win over the MHEA Eagles in the  6A title game at the National Christian HomeSchool Basketball tournament. The victory gave the THESA Riders a sixth straight national title.

Not to miss out on the fun, the final member of the class was also in the news as Morgan Tuck was named the Ms. Illinois Basketball.

Tuck, a 6-2 forward out of Bolingbrook High who averaged 27.7 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.7 steals, finished with 287 points, beating out Notre Dame signee Jewell Loyd (159 points) out of Niles West and Mount Carmel sophomore Tyra Buss (94).
