UConn commit De'Janae Boykin and former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale added five points each for the U.S. in the 3x3 event in Nanjing, China.

UConn commit Katie Lou Samuelson sprained an ankle during a team scrimmage and although she was taped up and likely could have played, the decision was made to sit her out of the game.

"I think we played really well, especially with Katie Lou being out," Collier said. "We had to play really smart, and I think we did. I think we adjusted pretty well. We rebounded really well, which is what we've been working on and trying to do."

The U.S. will play Indonesia and Egypt on Tuesday as play continues in the preliminary round portion of the event.
