In the second edition of the Youth Olympic Games, the USA Basketball women’s 3x3 team claimed the USA’s first gold medal at the event after posting a 13-0 record from Aug. 18-26 in Nanjing, China.

The 2014 Youth Olympic Games women's 3x3 basketball competition featured 20 women’s teams as well as a Shootout competition, and athletes 14 to 18 years old (born between Jan. 1, 1996 and Dec. 31, 1997) were eligible to compete.

FIBA altered its rules after 2010, and in 2014 games were played in one 10-minute period (instead of two, five-minute periods), and the winner was the first team to 21 points (as opposed to 33 points in 2010), or the leading team when time expired.

Named to the 2014 U.S. Youth Olympic Women’s Basketball Team on July 7 were: De’Janae Boykin, Napheesa Collier, Arike Ogunbowale and Katie Lou Samuelson.

The team was led by head coach Dori Oldaker, who conducted training camp Aug. 11-13 in Colorado Springs, Colorado, prior to the competition, but as per 3x3 rules was not allowed to coach during games.

The U.S. roster featured experience and team chemistry as Boykin, Ogunbowale and Samuelson had won gold with USA Basketball at the 2013 FIBA Americas U16 Championship and 2014 FIBA U17 World Championship.

Ogunbowale and Samuelson also had 3x3 experience under their belts having won gold at the 2013 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Championship.

Although a newcomer to the group, Collier had USA Basketball experience with a gold medal at the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship and 3x3 experience from two USA Basketball tournaments in 2013.

Behind an 11-for-12 shooting effort from the field by Collier, the USA opened up preliminary play with a 21-3 victory over Romania on Aug. 18. Boykin and Ogunbowale added five points apiece while Samuelson did not play due to an ankle sprain.

On the second day of preliminary action, Collier again led all scorers with 12 points in a 21-2 win over Indoneisa and 11 points in a 21-6 win over Egypt. Samuelson remained sidelined by injury.

The USA topped Thailand 21-5 on Aug. 20, including 13 points from Collier and eight from Ogunbowale and still no playing time for Samuelson.

Samuelson returned to the court on Aug. 21, however, and won bronze in the Shootout competition.

On Aug. 22, the USA beat previously-undefeated Belgium 21-6 and Andorra 22-5; and after opening its game on Aug. 23 against Taiwan with a 12-0 run, won that contest 21-5.

The USA wrapped up preliminary round play on Aug. 24 with wins over Czech Republic 21-12 and Guam 21-10 that saw the USA remain unbeaten and advance to the quarterfinals.

A 21-7 victory over Venezuela in the round of 16, and a 21-12 win versus Estonia in the quarterfinals on Aug. 25 earned the USA a spot in the medal semifinals.

Defeating Hungary 21-14 on Aug. 26, the USA advanced to the gold-medal game, where it took down the Netherlands 19-10 in the only game in which the USA played the full 10 minutes.

With 8.9 points per game, Collier led the USA in scoring. Ogunbowale averaged 6.5 ppg., Samuelson, who played in only seven games overall, finished with 5.9 ppg. and Boykin added 2.5 ppg.

Spain topped Hungary 12-11 in the third-place game to earn the bronze medal.
