U.S. team moves into YOG semifinals

UConn commits De'Janae Boykin, Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson moved two wins from another gold medal.

Collier had six points while Samuelson and Boykin had five and three respectively as the U.S. defeated Estonia 21-12 to advance to the semifinals of the 3x3 basketball event at the Youth Olympic Games. Former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale led the U.S. with seven points.

Collier had 11 points while Boykin and Ogunbowale added five points each in the 21-7 win over Venezuela. The U.S. got to the free throw line nine times and matched Venezuela's scoring output from the foul line Samuelson did not play..

The U.S. will play Hungary in tomorrow's semifinals and with a win would play for the gold medal tomorrow as well as either Spain or Netherlands.
