Two Connecticut players still in contention for U-17 team

There were two cuts today as USA Basketball continues the process of cutting down the roster from its original number of 144.

While many of the names including UConn commits De'Janae Boykin and Katie Lou Samuelson as well as recruiting targets Erin Boley, Lauren Cox, Asia Durr, Sabrina Ionescu and Arike Ogunbowale making the cut were hardly surprising, it was a nice feather in the cap of Connecticut girls' basketball that two of the final 70 are Nutmeg State products.

Capital Prep Kiah Gillespie and Avon's Abby Laszewski survived both cuts and are in contention for the team. The next round of cuts will be posted before the first session on Sunday morning.

Look for more about the experience of competing against the nation's top players for Gillespie, Laszewski and Capital Prep's Desiree Elmore, who was cut earlier today, in Monday's New Haven Register.
