UConn recruiting target gets defensive at U-17 tourney

UConn Class of 2013 recruiting target Linnae Harper had seven steals to go with seven points, four rebounds and four assists and helped keep the leading scorer in the tournament in check as the United States defeated Belgium 80-50 in the FIBA U-17 World Championship for Women on Tuesday.

Belgium's Hind Ken Abdelkader came into the game averaging 21 points per game but she finished with just seven points on 2 of 24 shooting including going 1 of 14 from 3-point range.

UConn Class of 2014 recruiting target Brianna Turner had eight points, three rebounds and four steals as the U.S. improved to 4-0 in pool play.

Rebecca Greenwell led three U.S. players in double figures with 17 points while former UConn recruiting target Diamond DeShields had 14 points and 11 rebounds.

The U.S. wraps up preliminary round play tomorrow against winless Mali. The U.S. will be the top seed out of Group A for the quarterfinals and play the No. 4 team in Group B which at the current time is Australia.
