Pair of UConn commits shine in postseason

UConn incoming freshman Katie Lou Samuelson is known as an extraordinary 3-point shooter but in her quest to lead Mater Dei High School to the CIF Southern Section Open Division title, she is proving to be more than just somebody making a living from beyond the 3-point line.

Samuelson has been awarded 29 free throws in the last two games including 19 during the Monarchs' 59-37 victory over Alemany in Friday night's semifinals. Samuelson finished with 30 points, 16 of them coming from the foul line.

Samuelson's 15th 30-point game of the season set up a rematch against Chaminade in the Open Division title game. Chaminade is the only team to beat Mater Dei, posting a 60-59 win on Nov. 29 despite 27 points from Samuelson.

UConn Class of 2016  commit Crystal Dangerfield had 11 of her 15 points in the second half and finished with six assists to lead Blackman High School to a 67-44 win over Oakland in the Tennessee Region 4-AAAA title game on Friday. Blackman will play either Cumberland County or White County in a sectional game on Monday.
