has opted to be home schooled and will not play as a high school senior.
In an email to the Register, he confirmed that Courtney is not going to return to St. Mary’s.
“Courtney is not going to be playing her senior year,” Curtis Ekmark said in the email. “She is going to home school and get ready for UConn.”
Curtis Ekmark, the 2013 WBCA national high school coach of the year, recently resigned to start his own AAU program after coaching his daughter at St. Mary’s High School to three straight Arizona Division I titles and posting a 154-21 record in six years at St. Mary’s.
Ekmark, a 6-foot wing, averaged 19.6 points, 5 rebounds and 4 steals as a junior leading the Knights to a 29-1 record and the No. 3 ranking in the final USA Today national poll. She has a 4.3 GPA and is set to arrive at UConn in 2014.
She joins fellow perimeter players Sadie Edwards and Gabby Williams are early commitments to UConn. The Huskies are hoping to add a couple of post players to the list of commitments.
