Saniya Chong gets top honor from Parade Magazine

UConn incoming freshman Saniya Chong was named the national high school player of the year by Parade Magazine and headlines the All-American team which will be published in Sunday's magazine.

Other finalists for the award was North Carolina signee and former UConn recruiting target Diamond DeShields, Duke incoming freshman Kianna Holland as well as Rebekah Dahlman and Toni Jankoska, who have signed with Vanderbilt and Michigan State respectively.

Chong, who averaged nearly 35 points and more than 9 assists as a senior at Ossining (N.Y.) High, is the third straight UConn recruit to win the award following Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis and Breanna Stewart.

The Connecticut Sun moved a step closer to finalizing its opening-day roster by cutting Chatilla van Grinsven, who was signed out of Saint Joseph's University as an undrafted rookie free agent.

The 6-foot-3 forward and member of the Netherlands' national team had six points and three rebounds in Connecticut's preseason opener against New York on May 11.

Barring any signings, the Sun will need to cut two more players to get down to the opening-day maximum of 11.
