Ekmark delivers for St. Mary's

UConn commit Courtney Ekmark is already earning a reputation of delivering when it counts the most.

Ekmark, a 6-foot junior for St. Mary's out of Phoenix, scored 10 of her 17 points after Pinnacle had pulled within four points.

It was pretty interesting that Pinnacle is the last Arizona team to beat St. Mary's and that happened two years to the day.There would be no repeat on Monday as St. Mary's won 63-43.

I reached out to Courtney's dad Curtis, who is also the St. Mary's head coach and he said organizers from the HoopHall Classic in Springfield, Mass. have reached out to him about having St. Mary's play in the 2014 event but that he won't start discussing next year's schedule with the St. Mary's athletic director until the end of the state tournament. He also said that while Courtney is not planning to make trips east to see UConn play during the season, they are planning to attend the Final Four in New Orleans in April.
