Reimer sits out last U.S. game

UConn recruiting target Taya Reimer injured her right ankle in the United States' win over Guam in the 3X3 World Youth Championships on Friday in Italy.

Reimer, who averaged 5 points in the first three games of the tournament, sat out the game against Italy and she will have her ankle examined to see if she can continue to play in the tournament.

Even without Reimer, the U.S. defeated Italy 16-13 to improve to 4-0 in Group 3. The U.S. wraps up pool play on Saturday against Sweden and has already secured a spot in the Round of 16. With a win in the Round of 16, the U.S. would advance to the quarterfinals on Saturday with the semifinals and championship game set for Sunday.

Pool play for the girls team wraps up Saturday against Sweden at 1 p.m. (times listed are CEST, which is +6 hours from EDT) on Sept. 10. The top four finishing teams from each of the four preliminary round pools will advance to a playoff Round of 16 that will be held at 2 p.m. on Sept. 10, with the medal quarterfinals at 4:30 p.m. The medal semifinals will be played at 1:30 and 2 p.m. on Sunday, with the bronze medal game at 6 p.m. and the gold medal game at 6:30 p.m.
