Big night for UConn commits

There's been plenty of news about UConn's incoming freshmen De'Janae Boykin, Napheesa Collier and Katie Samuelson in recent days thanks to all three being named as candidates for the Naismith national player of the year and being selected to play in the McDoinald's All-American Game. However, UConn has three other commitments who have a longer wait before suiting up for the Huskies.

It wasn't a bad couple of days for that trio.

On Thursday, with UConn coach Geno Auriemma in the stands, sophomore Andra Espinoza-Hunter had 18 points and hit three 3-pointers as Blair Academy defeated Life Center Academy 63-57.

Fast forwarding to yesterday, junior Crystal Dangerfield had 21 points and eight assists as Blackman High defeated rival Riverdale 64-53 to wrap up the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Tennessee District 7-AAA tournament.

Kyla Irwin had 24 points as her State College (Pa.) HS team defeated Carlisle 61-15. It was the best scoring output for Irwin in more than a month as she had games of 31, 26 and 26 in three consecutive games from Dec. 16-23.
