Miami Country Day has high hopes for this girls’ basketball season coming off a state runner-up finish in Class 3A. One of the big reasons is guard Danielle Minott. On Wednesday, Minott was one of several Miami-Dade County athletes in different sports who signed with colleges on the first day of the early signing period.

Minott, who averaged 14 points, seven rebounds and five steals per game last season, signed with Syracuse University.
