Apr 6, 2024 2:02 PM

Sarah Strong, the top-ranked recruit in the class of 2024, committed to UConn at halftime of the Chipotle Nationals championship Saturday.

Strong was the last recruit to commit from the ESPN 100 and was deciding from among UConn, Duke and North Carolina. She joins a loaded 2024 class for the Huskies that also includes No. 4 Allie Ziebell and No. 18 Morgan Cheli.

"Just watching them play ... watching and realizing I can help them and be there. I'm just ready to be there and practice and play," Strong said of her decision to choose UConn, adding she felt the Huskies can help her reach her goal of playing in the WNBA. "I like the style and feel like I fill a need there. I'm drawn to the championship culture."

Bronny James Could Transfer From USC

Apr 3, 2024 11:20 AM

Bronny James is expected to enter the college basketball transfer portal following his freshman season at USC. Andy Enfield left USC for the head coaching vacancy at SMU.

“At the end of the day, Bronny’s his own man,” said LeBron James when asked about his son on Tuesday.

“He has some tough decisions to make, and when he’s ready to make those decisions, he’ll let us all know. But as his family, we’re going to support whatever he does.”

James averaged 4.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 25 games this season.

In February, ESPN moved James to the 39th pick in their 2025 NBA mock draft. Before his health issue last July and his freshman season at USC, James was regarded as a possible lottery pick.
