    ATLANTA (February 5, 2013) – Saniya Chong, joining the UConn women’s basketball team in 2013-14, was chosen to play in the 2013 Women’s Basketball Coaches Association high school All-America game as announced by the WBCA on Tuesday morning.

    The 22nd annual High School All-America Game, which is held as part of the WBCA National Convention, will be played Saturday, April 6, 2013, at the New Orleans Arena, site of the 2013 NCAA® Women’s Final Four®.  Tipoff is set for 4:30 p.m. CT.  For the fourth consecutive year, the game will be played on the official NCAA Women’s Final Four court. The 20 players will be divided into two 10-player teams for the game, which will be played according to NCAA rules. 

    “The 20 members of this year’s High School All-America Team have been great leaders for their teams and for the game of girls’ and women’s basketball as it continues to grow,” said WBCA CEO Beth Bass.  “I am excited to see how these young women perform this year in New Orleans at the WBCA High School All-America Game presented by NIKE.”

    Any graduating senior can be nominated for the WBCA High School All-America Team by a high school or AAU coach who is an active WBCA member. College coaches are not eligible to nominate a player for consideration.  The 20-player All-America team and a 20-player honorable mention team are selected from the nominees by a selection committee composed of WBCA-member girls’ high school basketball coaches who represent nine geographical districts across the country.
