UConn commit Samuelson hits the court at YOG

A day after earning a bronze medal in the shootout competition at the Youth Olympic Games UConn commit Katie Lou Samuelson was able to make her debut in the 3x3 basketball event.

Samuelson missed the first four U.S. games due to a sprained ankle but she returned in a major way in a showdown for first place in Pool B.

Samuelson hit four of five shots behind the 3-point line (worth two points in this competition) and finished with a team-leading nine points in a 21-6 win over previously undefeated Belgium. UConn commit Napheesa Collier, who led the U.S. in scoring in each of the first four games, finished with six points.

In the team's final preliminary round game of the day it was former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale who had a team-high nine points in a 22-4 win over Andorra. UConn commits Collier and Boykin finished with seven and five points respectively while Samuelson had the other point.

The U.S. is now 6-0 heading into the final two days of pool play.
