U.S. finishes undefeated in pool play at Youth Olympic Games

UConn commit Napheesa Collier had 17 of the 42 points as the United States completed a perfect run through pool play at the Youth Olympic Games.

Collier had seven points while fellow UConn commits Katie Lou Samuelson and De'Janae Boykin finished with five and four points in a 21-12 win over the Czech Republic.

Collier and former UConn recruiting target Arike Ogunbowale had 10 points each in a 21-10 win over Guam. Samuelson was held out of the game.

The U.S. finished atop of Pool B with a 9-0 record and will play Venezuela in the Round of 16 tomorrow.

Collier accounted for 85 of her team's 190 points while shooting 76 percent from the field. Ogunbowale, the only U.S. play to get to the free-throw line in each game, added 59 points while Boykin had 25 points. Samuelson, who earned a bronze medal in the shootout competition, was held out of five of the nine pool play games due to a sprained ankle. In just four games she had seven of the team's 16 3-pointers (worth two points in the 3x3 scoring system) and had 21 points.
