UConn commit Dangerfield named national player of the year
The 5-foot-6 Dangerfield was one of five finalists for the McDonald's national player of the year as she beat out Baylor signees Lauren Cox and Natalie Chou, Notre Dame recruit Jackie Young and Texas incoming freshman Joyner Holmes for the award.
Dangerfield averaged 23.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 2.5 steals as a senior at Blackman High in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. She finished her career with 2,186 points, 171 3-pointers, 507 assists and 503 steals. One of her most impressive stats might be that she shot 164 free throws in 30 games as a senior and 403 in 129 career games so she is not afraid to drive the ball to the basket.
