Another big game for UConn commit at YOG

UConn commit Napheesa Collier continues to be the go-to player for the U.S. in the 3x3 basketball competition at the Youth Olympic Games.

The rising high school senior from O'Fallon, Missouri made 10 of 11 shots from the field and both of her free throws to account for 13 points in a 21-5 win over Thailand as the U.S.improved to 4-0 in pool play. Former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale had the other eight U.S. points.

Collier has scored between 11-13 in each of the four games as she has accounted for 46 of her team's 84 points. She is shooting 77 from the field during the tournament.

 UConn commit Katie Lou Samuelson continues to be held out of the competition due to a minor ankle injury.

The big test could come Friday when the 4-0 U.S. team meets 4-0 Belgium. Pool play runs through Sunday. The round of 16 and quarterfinals are scheduled for Monday with the semifinals and finals on Tuesday.
