UConn's Azura' Stevens and Gabby Williams helped their teams reach the finals of a tournament being held in conjunction with the U23 national team trials.

Stevens had 15 points to lead Team 2 to a 79-71 victory over Team 4 in the semifinals of the tournament held in conjunction with the U.S. U23 trials in Colorado Springs. Ariel Atkins of Texas, UCLA's Jordin Canada and Notre Dame's Arike Ogunbowale added 14 points each.

Williams had 12 points as Team 3 defeated Team 1 65-60 in the first semifinal. Ohio State's Kelsey Mitchell had 13 points and Michigan's Hallie Thome finished with 12 points for Team 3.

The bronze-medal game is set for Friday at 10 a.m. with the gold-medal game scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Both games will be streamed live at Per Doug Feinberg of the Associated Press, the UConn players are expected to return home tomorrow and will not be playing in medal-round games.

When the trials are over, the 12-player team which will represent the U.S. at the U23 Four Nations Tournament will be announced. Stevens, Williams, Napheesa Collier and Katie Lou Samuelson will not be on that team since UConn will be heading to Italy for a tour including four exhibition games.
