UConn signee Coombs off to an impressive start

We're still about three weeks away from the girls' high school basketball season starting up in Connecticut but a couple of recent UConn signees have already embarked on their senior seasons.

Recently, Lexi Gordon scored the 2,000th point of her career as she is averaging more than 20 points per game in the early stages this season.

Mikayla Coombs is also off to a strong start for the undefeated Wesleyan School.

Coombs has flirted with double-doubles in her last two games and through three games this season she is averaging 17.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 4.7 steals per game.

In her most recent game Coombs had 25 points, eight rebounds, four assists and six steals in a 90-38 win over Tattnall County. Wesleyan has scored more than 90 points in the last two games.

The seasons for the other two signees (Andra Espinoza-Hunter and Megan Walker) won't start until next month.

It should be noted that Walker's Monacan High and Coombs' Wesleyan School teams will both be playing in the CresCom Bank Holiday Invitational next month at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and there's a chance the teams could meet up on the final day of the tournament on Dec. 22.
