Saniya Chong continues to climb NY career charts

UConn signee Saniya Chong posted her seventh 40-point game of her senior season with 42 points in her final regular-season home game for Ossining (N.Y.) High School. Chong also had 11 assists and finiished two rebounds shy of a triple-double in a 92-71 win over Irvington.

Chong now has 2,706 points which allowed her to pass Hannah Kimmel and Katrina Springer to move into sixth place on the New York career scoring charts. However, all the players ahead of her had scoring totals from when they were in seventh and/or eighth grade included into their final numbers meaning that Chong has scored more points in four years of high school than any other New York girls' high school basketball player.

Chong has some work to do to move into the top five as former University of Virginia star Tammi Reiss is next up with 2,871 points. Caryn Schoff has the all-time record with 3,548 at St. Johnsville from 1989-95.

Chong, a 5-foot-9 guard averaging 35.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 9.5 assists and 4.3 steals, has already been selected to play in the WBCA High School All-American game which will be played at the New Orleans Arena on Apr. 6. She will find out on Thursday if she was selected to play in the McDonald's All-American game as the list of players will be announced live at 5 p.m. on ESPNU.
