She received a heroes welcome from the Storrs crowd and responded with USA fourth-best eight points and a pair of boards. Including Elliott and Rizzotti, UConn’s five starters all aided USA Basketball in one form or another in international competition. 2018 USA Basketball Developmental Coach of the Year Carla Berube finished with four points and six rebounds; Nykesha Sales, who played on several USA junior teams had nine points and eight boards; and 2000 Olympic gold medalist Kara Wolters scored six points and grabbed three rebounds.
