OSSINING, N.Y. -- Ossining High School Basketball Standout Saniya Chong has been named a 2013 Girls Basketball Player of the Year by Parade Magazine.
Chong was among the players chosen from across the nation to be on the magazine's annual high school All-Americans Basketball Team .
"Chong’s scoring average is 34.4 points per game," wrote Parade columnist Brian McCloughlin. "If the opposition wants to try to hold that number down, she’s the kind of point guard who can make anybody else around her the game’s leading scorer. Foul her, and she’ll beat you from the free-throw line—she makes, oh, about 9 in every 10. Play soft defense on her, and she’ll destroy you from behind the 3-point arc."
Chong will attend the University of Connecticut and compete under coach Geno Auriemma this fall.
