Samuelson leads U.S. to emphatic win

UConn recruiting target Katie Lou Samuelson had 20 points, four 3-pointers and eight rebounds as the U.S. wrapped up the first round of the FIBA Americas U-16 Championship for Women with a 106-19 (yes you read that right) win over Costa Rica.

Fellow UConn Class of 2015 recruiting target Asia Durr added 12 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and a blocked shot.

After the round robin portion of the tournament Durr is the top scorer with an average of 18.3 points per game and is also averaging a tournament-best 4..3 3-pointers per game and is second in field-goal percentage (57.1). Samuelson ranks fifth in scoring (13.3) and is third in rebounding (7.3).

The U.S., which has qualified for the 2014 U-17 World Championships, will play Mexico in the semifinals on Saturday. Canada and Brazil will meet in the other semifinal with the gold-medal game set for Sunday.
