Penn State officially announces arrival of former UConn guard

Penn State made it official by putting out a release on the transfer of former UConn guard Brianna Banks, a member of two national championship teams with the Huskies.

Banks will need to sit out this season due to NCAA transfer regulations and will play her final season for the Lady Lions during the 2015-16 campaign.

While UConn commit Katie Lou Samuelson hasn't gotten onto the court for the undefeated U.S. team at the Youth Olympic Games due to a minor ankle injury, there is nothing wrong with her shooting form.

Samuelson emerged from a field of 62 to advance to the finals in the shootout competition. Samuelson, who made six 3-pointers in the preliminary portion of the event, hit four treys in 32 seconds to finish third.

Spain's Lucia Togores Carpintero won the competition with seven 3-pointers.

UConn commit De'Janae Boykin made four 3-pointers to finish 19 in the preliminaries.
