Major honor for UConn recruiting target

UConn Class of 2014 recruiting target A'ja Wilson has been named the WBCA National Player of the Year.

The 6-foot-4 Wilson was averaging 34.4 points, 14.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.1 steals and 5.1 blocks per game after Heathwood Hall's 79-42 win over Porter-Gaud in the SCISA Class AAA quarterfinals on Tuesday with seven 40-point games and five games with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds. Next up for Wilson (who had 33 points in last night's win on 14 of 19 shooting, 20 rebounds and seven blocks) and Heathwood Hall is Friday's semifinals.

 UConn signee Sadie Edwards was an honorable mention All-American after the Meriden native led Blair Academy to the New Jersey Prep Class A title.
