UConn commit delivers on basketball court

UConn signee Jordan Fuchs earned all-tournament honors as Christ the King defeated Bishop Loughlin 78-63 to win its third CHSAA Class AA title in the last four years.

Fuchs, who could could compete for immediate playing time at tight end for the Huskies this season, had 17 points and seven rebounds in the championship game.

Fuchs and Christ the King advances to the New York Federation tournament which begins on Mar. 22 in Albany.

Closer to home, neither of the in-state commits were able to reach the CIAC state final.

Tommy Myers' Coventry team lost to Old Saybrook 64-62 in double overtime in the first round of the Class S tournament while Tim Boyle's Xavier team fell to Hillhouse 57-34 in yesterday's Class LL semifinals. Boyle, who had four points in the semifinal loss, helped Xavier upset third-seeded St. Joseph and No. 6 seed Windsor to advance to the semifinals.

UConn officially announced that its Pro Day will be held on Mar. 27.

UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni said he has encouraged all the seniors to take part although the players expected to draw the most attention figure to be NFL combine standouts Dwayne Gratz, Sio Moore, Trevardo Williams and Blidi Wreh-Wilson. It could be a great opportunity for tight end Ryan Griffin to impress the scouts after he failed to earn an invite to the NFL combine.

Stratford's Mark Harrison, who had a strong showing at the combine, injured his foot and was unable to take part in Rutgers' Pro Day today.
