In recruiting news, UConn received its 2nd verbal commitment today from 5'11 SG Tiffany Hayes from Winter Haven H.S. in Florida. Those who watched the T-Mobile Invitational to watch UConn-signee POTY Maya Moore saw Hayes light it up for 15th-ranked Winter Haven as they almost narrowly pulled off the upset (if not for the late-game heroics from Moore) of Collins Hill 60-58.
