Future Husky gets state title and scoring record

UConn signee Saniya Chong had 34 points to set the New York girls' basketball single-scoring record to lead her Ossining (N.Y.) team to an 86-69 win over Gates Chili to win the New York Class AA championship.

Chong now has 902 points this season, breaking the mark of 892 set by Caryn Schoff of St. Johnsville during the 1994-95 season. She also 38 points shy of becoming the fourth girls' player in New York history to score 3,000 career points with just one game remaining as Ossining receives a bye into the New York Federation Class AA tournament. Murry Bergtraum and Bishop Ford play on Friday in Albany with the winner meeting Ossining for the Federation title.

Also, UConn Class of 2014 recruiting targets Kathryn Westbeld and Jordin Canada led their teams to titles.

Westbeld had 13 points and 12 rebounds (for her 16th double-double of the season) as her Fairmont squad defeated two-time defending champion Twinsburg 52-48 in the Ohio Division I final. Twinsburg had defeated Fairmont in the 2011 and 2012 Division I title games.

Canada had 17 points and 14 assists as Windward defeated Mater Dei 81-71 to win the CIF South Section Open Division title. UConn Class of 2015 recruiting target Katie Lou Samuelson led Mater Dei with 23 points.

Windward will play North Division champion Bishop O'Dowd for the CIF title on Mar. 23

High school tough competition might not be enough to prepare Chong. Despite success with USA Basketball on various U- teams, Stewart is still not comfortable with college bodies. Jefferson is further behind dealing with bigger and stronger opponents.
