Another honor for Sanya Chong

UConn signee Saniya Chong continues to pile up the postseason honors.

The 5-foot-9 guard out of Ossining, N.Y. won both the Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of New York and was named New York's Miss Basketball and now MSG Varsity named her as its All-Metro Player of the Year.

She was joined on the first team by Class of 2014 UConn recruiting targets Taylor Rooks and Sierra Calhoun.

The only Connecticut player to make the list is Lauralton Hall's Michelle DeSantis.

Also, I wanted to clarify the time frame of UConn recruiting target Gabby Williams' recent unofficial visit. I originally thought she was going to be here for the Idaho game on Saturday but she actually flew into Connecticut on Sunday and was in attendance for Monday's game against Vanderbilt and she left with a scholarship offer and it might not be a reach to say that other than Heathwood Hall's A'ja Wilson, there might not be another uncommitted high school junior any higher on UConn's wish list than the 5-foot-11 Williams who is also an Olympic caliber high jumper who finished fifth in that event at the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials.

While Williams, Rooks and 2014 commit Sadie Edwards were all recent visitors to UConn, don't expect to see too many recruits at the upcoming games in Bridgeport. Since Webster Bank Arena is not one of UConn's home courts, if a recruit wants to come see the Huskies pay they need to purchase whatever available seats they can get just like any other member of the general public.

Ossining coach Dan Ricci said there is a possibility Chong could make it to Bridgeport for either the regional semifinals on Saturday or Elite Eight game if the Huskies get by Maryland.
