Bloody nose doesn't slow down UConn commit

Courtney Ekmark, the first member of the current high school junior class, had 23 points in less than three quarters of play despite suffering a bloody nose during an 80-34 win over Desert Vista of Phoenix in the second round of the AIA Division I tournament on Friday night.

In a report on the AIA365.com site, her father and St. Mary's coach Curtis Ekmark said “I think that (cut) made her mad,’’ Curtis Ekmark said. “She came back and played like nobody was going to stop her.
“She’s a tough kid, though. She takes a lot worse from her brother at home."

St. Mary's will play Chandler in the quarterfinals on Monday.

UConn signee Saniya Chong was also in action on Friday night as she had 25 points and 10 assists as Ossining (N.Y.) defeated Mamaroneck 84-37 in the first round of the New York AA tournament. Ossining will host Scarsdale on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.
