Monster games for UConn recruits Irwin and Dangerfield

It was a night of offensive explosions for a pair of UConn signees.

Crystal Dangerfield netted a career-high 38 points as Blackman High School defeated Smyrna 68-55 to improve to 23-3.

Coming into the season Dangerfield's career high was 26 against Myers Park on Dec. 31, 2013. She topped that with 34 points against Brentwood Academy in the first game of her senior season and matched it in a January win over Whitney Young.

Dangerfield has scored at least 20 points a total of 19 times in 25 games as a senior including seven 30-point contests.

Speaking of lighting it up, with UConn assistant coach Marisa Moseley looking on, Kyla Irwin matched her career high with 43 points and added 14 rebounds and nine steals in State College's 76-23 win over Hollidaysburg in her final home game.

It is the second time this month Irwin had 43 points which matches the school's single-season scoring record set by Katie Glusko. In a current eight-game winning streak Irwin is averaging 32.3 points per game. She is just 52 points shy of 2,000.
