UConn commit honored

UConn incoming freshman Morgan Tuck has been named the Herald-News Player of the Year following a spectacular senior season at Bolingbrook (Ill.) High.

As impressive as her statistics were (27.7 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2.7 steals), the comments of Bolingbrook head coach Anthony Smith about Tuck's work ethic.

Here is the snippet of what Smith had to say about his senior star "most kids work out, get it over with, go home and want to do something else. But, basketball is her true passion, seven days a week. It will be tough to fill her shoes because those kinds of kids don’t come around too often. We’re hoping her ways rubbed off on the rest of the kids because they want to be like her."
