Chong is New York's Miss Basketball winner

Not sure how I missed this one but since I haven't seen any official releases or stories on UConn incoming freshman Saniya Chong being named the winner of New York's Miss Basketball award, I reached out to Ossining High coach Dan Ricci to see if the award has already been announced. He said Chong was named the winner of the award during the state tournament..

The 5-foot-9 senior guard at Ossining set a New York single-season record with 928 points and is New York's fourth all-time leading scorer with 2,988 points.

Chong is averaging 34.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 9.1 assists and 4.8 steals per game. She has scored at least 20 points in every game this season including 18 30-point efforts and a high of 51 against Irvington and she a state record with 108 3-pointers as a senior.

She is the sixth UConn recruit to win the award joining last year's winner Breanna Stewart, Bria Hartley, Lorin Dixon, Tina Charles and Sue Bird.
