Americans win FIBA U19 title with a 69-46 win over Spain on Sunday.
It's been a good year for Bolingbrook High School Lady Raiders standouts Ariel Massengale and Morgan Tuck. In November both signed letters of intent to play for two of the top NCAA women's basketball programs in the nation—Massengale to the University of Tennessee and Tuck to the University of Connecticut. The dynamic duo helped the Lady Raiders cruise to a near-flawless regular season before helping the team win its third state championship in as many years. After the season, Massengale was named a McDonald's All-American. Just consider their most recent accomplishment—helping the U.S. U19 women's national team to a world championship over the weekend—the icing on their otherwise very large cake. Both Massengale, now a former Lady …

National team will play for fourth-straight world championship in Chile in July.
From one three-peat squad to another, it seems to make on difference for Ariel Massengale or Morgan Tuck. Massengale and Tuck—two pillars of the Bolingbrook High School girls basketball team over the years—have been invited to try out for the USA U19 World Championship team. Both were included in the elite roster of 34 of the nation’s best girl basketball players ages 19 and under, which was released last week by USA Basketball. Massengale and Tuck, who helped lead the Lady Raiders to a third-straight state championship in March, will travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., on May 22 to try out for one of 12 roster spots. The announcement of up to 16 team finalists will be made in the morning of May 25, a USA Basketball release said. If …

Ariel Massengale was full of smiles Monday during the skills competition at Chicago State University.
CHICAGO—Anyone who has crossed paths with the Bolingbrook High School girls basketball program knows Ariel Massengale's name is synonymous with winning. The Lady Raiders point guard has been a part of 83 wins and three Class 4A state championships over the last three years. So maybe that's why it might have been a little surprising to see Massengale come up short in the 3-point contest during Monday's skills competition portion of the McDonald's All-American Games. "It was fun. This was my first ever 3-point contest," she said. "But I'm looking forward to the big game Wednesday." Massengale, who will be attending the University of Tennessee and playing under legendary coach Pat Summitt and the Lady Vols, scored 15 points -- narrowly …
