Saniya Chong’s Other Suitor Still Loves Her (Game)

Louisville was one of Saniya Chong’s major suitors when during her All-American high school career. And UConn’s recruitment of her made perfect sense to Cardinals coach Jeff Walz.
“UConn does a great job of not just going after the top player in the country every year,” Walz said. “We went to Ossining, N.Y., to see Saniya Chong play. And when you looked at her, you thought; here’s a shooter who understands the game. But if you wanted her to be your go-to player, then maybe a school [at a level lower than UConn] may have not been the best place for her. But she is awfully good at everything that she does. She reminds me very much of Mel Thomas.”
