UConn commit Collier continues to shine at YOG

UConn commit Napheesa Collier, fresh off an impressive showing at the FIBA Americas U18 Championships, is putting on a show for the United States team in the 3x3 competition at the Youth Olympic Games.

Collier had 23 of the team's 42 points in a pair of wins in preliminary round play on Tuesday.

Collier had 12 points (going 11 of 15 from the field) in a 21-2 victory over Indonesia while former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale had six points and UConn commit De'Janae Boykin three points.

In the 21-6 win over Egypt Collier had 11 points on 8 of 14 shooting while Ogunbowale and Boykin added seven and three points respectively.

They were both (Indonesia and Egypt) very tough teams, so we can't come out slacking; we played pretty hard," Boykin said. "Our second game was physical. We just have to come out and do our best."

UConn commit Katie Lou Samuelson continues to be held out of the competition as she recovers from a sprained ankle suffered in a scrimmage shortly before the tournament began.

Former Bridgeport Central star Nadine Domond posted on her Instagram account that she has been named the head coach at Grambling.

Domond has been involved with basketball since her playing days ended and has been a well respected trainer with Duke rising senior Elizabeth Williams, who is expected to be a lottery pick in the 2015 WNBA Draft, among her most prominent clients.
