U.S. won't have Reimer tomorrow

According to the release sent out by USA Basketball, UConn recruiting target Taya Reimer's injured right ankle will sideline her for the remainder of the 3X3 World Youth Championships.

Reimer, a 6-foot-3 forward from Fishers, Ind., played in the first three games for the U.S. squad and averaged 5 points per game before getting hurt.

The U.S. needed overtime to beat the Czech Republic 25-23 in the quarterfinals and advance to Sunday's semifinals against host Italy. The team will not be able to substitute and will rely exclusively on Linnae Harper, Rebecca Greenwell and Kaela Davis in the semifinals and if it wins, in Sunday's championship game.

Sidelined with a sprained right ankle suffered on Friday, Taya Reimer (Hamilton Southeastern H.S. /Fishers, Ind.) did not play on Saturday and will not return to the court on Sunday is how the release addressed Reimer's situation.

Spain and Japan will play in the other medal semifinal with the winner playing the U.S./Italy winner for the gold medal.
