Chong To Sign National Letter Of Intent Wednesday

UConn commit Saniya Chong, a 5-foot-9 guard from Ossining, N.Y., will sign her National Letter of Intent Wednesday on the first day of the NCAA early signing period. She is the lone member of UConn’s 2013 recruiting class.

According to Ossining coach Dan Ricci, Chong will sign the NLI during a “small get-together’’ at the high school with her parents and her school counselor at 1:45 p.m.

“Nothing elaborate, just kind of the way she is,’’ Ricci said.

Chong averaged 33.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 9.7 assists, 5.0 steals and 1.4 blocks last season in leading Ossining to a 23-1 record and its second straight Section 1 Class AA championship. The Pride ultimately advanced to the Class AA state semifinals.

Through 70 career games at Ossining, Chong has amassed 2,060 points (29.4), 412 rebounds (5.9), 473 assists (6.8) and 362 steals (5.2).
