UConn recruiting targets go after state titles today

On a day when UConn seniors Heather Buck, Caroline Doty and Kelly Faris are honored as part of Senior Day festivities, a pair of potential future Huskies will have a chance to end their junior seasons in style.

Courtney Ekmark, the only member from the Class of 2014 committed to UConn, will lead her St. Mary's team against fellow Phoenix school Pinnacle in Arizona's Division I state championship game. The game, which starts at 4 p.m., will be live streams on the site.

A'ja Wilson, who is at the top of UConn's wish list among the uncommitted high school juniors, had 33 points (on 16 of 24 shooting), 13 rebounds and four blocked shots to lead Heathwood Hall out of Columbia, S.C. to a 63-47 win over Northwood Academy on Friday night. UConn coach Geno Auriemma and South Carolina coach Dawn Staley were among those in attendance according to media reports from the game.

Heathwood Hall will face defending champion Pinewood Prep tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the South Carolina Independent School Association Class AAA championship game.

In two tournament games Wilson is averaging 34 points while shooting 70.7 percent from the field, 14.5 rebounds and 5 blocks per game. On the season she is averaging 28.6 points (shooting 68.7 shooting), 14.4 rebounds and 5.5 blocks per game.
