Olivia Nelson-Ododa put up 21 points Tuesday.
Christyn Williams scored 18 points in a 50-point win Tuesday. Probably didn't play much.
Olivia Nelson-Ododa named athlete of the week in Atlanta Journal Constitution. Here's a video of the announcement with ONO talking about her school goals outside of basketball:
Winder Barrow's Olivia Nelson-Ododa: Montlick & Associates Athlete of the Week
21 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocks
Christyn and Liv both nominated today for possible selection to the McDonald's AA game along with almost 700 others.
Olivia Nelson-Ododa with 30 points and 13 rebounds Friday night.
Christyn Williams didn't play for CAC.
Big game for Liv!
Any idea why CWill didn't play?
For the curious, @christyn2000 was out doing other BB business. All good!
If CAC won by 80-23, Christyn wasn't exactly needed.
7-hour drive from Little Rock to Houston. ?
I never thought of that. Not a bad guess.
Houston & Austin are about as close as UConn will get to Arkansas this year other than Memphis (Jan 24). Memphis is only 2 hours away, but that's a Wednesday afternoon game and hardly the attraction of a weekend topped of with UConn-Texas.
Maybe she'll be at both. CAC doesn't play again until next Friday.
Bret McCormick released his ranking of the best 125 recruiting classes of 2018. He has UConn #1.
He has them both being from Texas, however, which is probably a surprise to them.

Bret appears to prefer quality to quantity. Both the Baylor and Texas classes are much larger and very good.
There's a case for that logic. Think it depends on how big one perceives the gaps are between some of the top players.
McCormick had UConn #1 this year too but he includes transfers in his rankings.
I understand the logic. He must think that Liv is really, really good.
Not many schools had a player like Z coming in this year. Probably none.
Nelson-Ododa had a mixed bag performance against one of the top-5 teams in the nation Tuesday:
12 points (4-12 FG, 4-7 FT), 14 rebounds, 2 blocks
Nelson-Ododa highlights from three games last week. A couple of threes, some long jumpers, and some nice post moves included.
ONO apparently had 20 rebounds in this game as well.
Liv can dribble the ball pretty well and shows nice form on her midrange shot. The spin move in the 3rd video is sweet!
Is Uconn done with it 2018 recruiting?
