Walker, Coombs team up for win at McDonald's All-American Game

UConn incoming freshmen Megan Walker and Mikayla Coombs were members of the winning East team at the McDonald's All-American Game played in Chicago today.

Walker had a couple of chance to put the East ahead in the closing seconds of regulation before the East pulled away for the 80-74 victory.

Walker finished with 13 points, five rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes while Coombs had two points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Coombs and Walker will team up again in the Jordan Brand Classic in New York next month and fellow UConn signee Lexi Gordon has also been selected to play in the game.

Another day and more All-American honors for UConn's newest terrific trio.

Napheesa Collier, Katie Lou Samuelson and Gabby Williams were named to the 10-member United States Basketball Writers Association All-American team joining Washington's Kelsey Plum, Kelsey Mitchell of Ohio State, South Carolina's A'ja Wilson, Oregon State's Sydney Wiese, Brianna Turner of Notre Dame and the Maryland duo of Brionna Jones and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough.

Collier, Jones, Mitchell, Plum and Wilson are finalists for the USBWA Player of Year award.
