Future Husky Coombs steals the show

Not long after the UConn women's basketball team dispatched SMU to win its 99th game in a row a member of the Huskies' incoming freshman class led the way in securing a memorable win of her own.

Mikayla Coombs had 27 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals (including the 300th of her career) and 1 blocked shot to lead the Wesleyan School to a 59-50 win over Holy Innocents' Episcopal School in the Georgia Region 5-A championship game.

Holy Innocents' owns five wins against Wesleyan in the last two seasons including a pair of regular-season victories this season and wins in the regional and state championship games last season.

Next up is the state tournament for a 24-4 Wesleyan team.

Also, UConn signee Andra Espinoza-Hunter recorded her 11th 40-point game of her senior season with 48 points as Ossining (N.Y.) wrapped up the regular season with a 91-70 win over Gill St. Bernard's.

Espinoza-Hunter had six 3-pointers giving her 71 in 19 games and she ended the regular season averaging 37.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 3.3 steals per game.

How does GENO incorporate all of these players next year? Especially since he recently stated he prefers a rotation of EIGHT players
