Tough day for UConn commits at Nike TOC

It was not the best of times for UConn commits Courtney Ekmark and Saniya Chong on Friday at the Nike Tournament of Champions.

Ekmark's St. Mary's of Phoenix squad lost to Mater Dei out of Santa Ana, Calif. 57-54 in the semifinals of Division E. The loss snapped a 48-game winning streak for St. Mary's. Ekmark finished with 15 points in the loss. Former UConn recruiting target Karlie Samuelson led Mater Dei with 18 points. St. Mary's will play Bishop O'Dowd in the third place game at 4:15 p.m. local time (6:15 p.m. in Connecticut).

UConn signee Saniya Chong had 24 points but her Ossining (N.Y.) team fell to Dr. Phillips out of Orlando 86-57. Ossining will play Las Vegas's Centennial High at 4:15 p.m. in the seventh-place game.

UConn recruiting targets Jordin Canada and Sierra Calhoun led their team to wins on Friday.

Canada's Windward School defeated Pinnacle 52-46 to reach the championship game in Division G. The title game against Miramonte is set for 1:45 p.m.

In the Joe Smith Division, Calhoun's Christ the King squad defeated La Jolla Country Day 67-62 and will play St. Mary's out of Stockton, Cal. in the fifth-place game.
