3 UConn commits on Naismith watch list

UConn incoming freshmen Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson and 2016 commit Crystal Dangerfield are among 20 players on the Naismith Girls' High School Player of the Year watch list.

Also on the watch list are Class of 2016 UConn recruiting targets Lauren Cox, Joyner Holmes and Sabrina Ionescu.

Collier, a 6-foot-1 forward at Incarnate Word Academy in St. Louis, is averaging 20.3 points, 9 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.7 blocks per game. Samuelson, a 6-foot-3 wing at Mater Dei High in Santa Ana, Calif., has five 30-point games in the first eight games of the season as she is averaging 31.1 points per game. Dangerfield, a 5-foot-5 guard at Blackman HS in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, is averaging 16.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 8.4 assists and 3.6 steals per game.

Samuelson and Dangerfield will be among the showcase players at the upcoming Nike Tournament of Champions in Arizona. Blackman will open up against Hamilton HS in Chandler, Arizona on Thursday. Mater Dei joins Blackman in the Joe Smith Division and will open against Skyline High out of Dallas. Mater Dei and Blackman are on opposite sides of the bracket and could meet in the Joe Smith championship game on Monday.

Speaking of recruiting targets, Shea Ralph watched Greenwich HS v Stamford HS last week, most likely to watch 2016 6-4 post Abbie Wolf. Story in Greenwich times said UConn is recruiting her, as are several other big-time schools. This seems to be a recent development.
