U.S. U-17 team falls to France; World Championships up next

UConn commit De'Janae Boykin scored in double digits
in two of the three games in exhibition tournament.
The U.S. U-17 team lost to host France 78-72 in the final day of an exhibition tournament despite a huge game from UConn recruiting target Asia Durr.

Durr had 22 points (on 9 of 13 shooting) and six assists. Fellow Class of 2015 UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale added 12 points while UConn commit De'Janae Boykin and Kristine Anigwe finished with 10 points and seven rebounds each.

Durr, who led the U.S. in scoring by averaging 15 points per game, was joined on the all-tournament team by Joyner Holmes who averaged 12.7 points and a team-leading 6.7 rebounds a game. Boykin averaged 9 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, Ogunbowale's 12.7 scoring average was tied for second on the team. UConn commit Katie Lou Samuelson did not play in any of the three games due to illness. She is considered to be day for day as the U.S. heads to Czech Republic for the FIBA U-17 World Championshups.

The U.S. opens play in the World Championships on Saturday. A rematch with France will be on Sunday and preliminary round play ends on Tuesday when the U.S. meets Mali.
