Solid start for UConn duo at FIBA U19 World Cup

UConn's Megan Walker and Crystal Dangerfield were among four players to score in double figures as the six-time defending champion United States squad opened play in the FIBA U19 World Cup with a 95-58 win over Mali.

Walker, an incoming freshman, came off the bench to score 15 points and added three rebounds, one assist and one steal. Dangerfield, the team captain and starting point guard, had 10 points, two rebounds and three assists.

Texas rising sophomore Alecia Sutton had 19 points, four rebounds and three assists while Texas A&M incoming freshman Chennedy Carter finished with 14 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Next up is a game against China on Sunday beginning at noon before wrapping up pool play against host Italy on Monday at 2:45 p.m.

Also, Walker is one of the finalists for USA Today's Girls high school athlete of the year. Voting runs through Wednesday and Walker is currently trailing hockey player Grace Zumwinkle in the voting.
