First round of cuts trims the number of players from 152 to 98.

Of the 19 known UConn POI, 18 made it through. Only 2023 Jordyn Griggs has been cut.

I say 19 but I still have a hunch UConn has interest in Kiki Iriafen who also remains.

Who is that to the right of Poffenbarger? Is that Verhulst?

Chris Hansen on the play though Friday:


Seeing Lauren Betts, Amari Deberry, Sania Fegin and a host of others all battle inside, in just the first group, was awesome. There are arguments galore to say who the best of that bunch is and will be. Tonight it was Feagin with the edge in impact by virtue of her ability to dominate defensively, start the break and make plays without scoring.

It would not be a shock to see post play the main focus of this year’s team based on the options the committee has. All those matchups above were just in the first group and didn’t include Timea Gardners of Odgen, Utah, who came in a favorite to make the squad. She too has shown her terrific touch around the basket and made a great opening argument to make the team.

I think it's critical that UConn recruit Wolfenbarger in addition to Poffenbarger just so I can chuckle for the next four years.......:)

Betts is REALLY tall. Maybe 4" taller than DeBerry ?
I had the opportunity to watch Olivia Miles play last year in one game. This might sound like heresy but, she's not that far behind Fudd.

Field cut to 68. Just two UConn POI miss this one: Jada Williams ('23) and Carleigh Wenzel ('22).

One more session tonight.
