Day to remember for UConn's Samuelson

UConn rising sophomore Katie Lou Samuelson has earned her share of honors in her playing career but today had to be extra special as she had her No. 33 retired at California powerhouse Mater Dei High School.

Samuelson set Mater Dei single-season records with a 29.2 scoring average, field-goal percentage of 62.0, an 89.4 free-throw percentage, 117 3-pointers made, 178 free throws made and 211 foul shots attempted. Her 42 points, 10 3-pointers made and 16 foul shots made are single-game program records (the latter being tied with her sister Karlie). Although she only played her final three seasons at Mater Dei after playing at Edison High as a freshman, Samuelson ranks second behind former UConn star Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis in Mater Dei High with 2,244 points, 760 rebounds and 297 3-pointers.

As a freshman at UConn Samuelson scored 408 points, the ninth most for a freshman in program history. Samuelson had a team-leading 78 3-pointers despite missing the national title game and second half of the national semifinals with a broken foot. Mosqueda-Lewis is the only UConn player with more 3-pointers as a freshman.
