U.S. bounces back

Led by 18 points and 14 rebounds from Stanford rising sophomore Nneka Ogwumike, the United States defeated China 88-53 to move to 1-1 in Group D play at the FIBA Under-19 World Championship for Women.

Former UConn recruiting targets Kelsey Bone and Skylar Diggins, who will be freshmen at South Carolina and Notre Dame respectively, added 16 and 13 points.

UConn incoming freshman Kelly Faris had four points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 14 minutes.

The U.S. will wrap up preliminary play against winless Mali on Saturday. The U.S. will finish second in Pool D with a win.
