Clay Kallam must be at the trials. He mentioned 4 players he was surprised didn't make the final 18. One of them is Destiny Adams.

Sounds like there was enough talent to take 2-3 dominant teams.

With the USA so dominant, I doubt FIBA would give us any advantages such as venue


Also, I would guess the kids enjoy the travel and the exotic feel of these events. As long as the living conditions and arena's are suitable.
true but then again Brooklyn is pretty exotic to somebody from Texas...... ;)

Both have UCONN offers and play different position. I don't see a need for UCONN to prioritize in this case.
I say that because I assume Fudd will be the most wanted recruit in the '21 class by UConn and it's competitors while DeBerry appears to be the top big forward available and UConn will likely need help at that position.......add a skilled wing if needed and that class would be truly outstanding...

I'd still say you don't prioritize anyone over Azzi because she has the potential to be a generational talent.

Azzi Fudd has previously said she longed to play at UConn. She has visited UConn at least four times, twice in Hartford for games, and twice on campus. Her best friend, who she is nearly inseparable from, is attending UConn next year and would be her teammate for three seasons if she were to come.

I think both sides have prioritized each other. I make the Huskies the betting favorite in that race.

Paige did say she was recruiting other players :cool:

But Deberry seems to have a lot of interest in UConn and I hope she comes. Miles is a stud too, but if anyone has not heard, we need height

Holy cow. Of the 12 UConn POI remaining, 11 made the team with just Hollingshead missing.

Verhulst the only non-UConn POI on the roster, for now.

Roster with pics and bios.



UConn should just set up camp in Chile next month.
