USA Women Finish Pool Play 4-0 at 3x3 U18 World Cup

  • Date:
    Aug 25, 2022

Behind leadership from Mikaylah Williams, the USA Basketball 3x3 U18 women’s team continued pool play with a pair of wins over Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine at the 2022 FIBA 3x3 U18 World Cup in Debrecen, Hungary, on Wednesday. The U.S. closes qualifying at the top of Pool D with a 4-0 record. 

In their first win of the day, the Americans got to 21 points in just 6:02 while holding Kyrgyzstan to four points in that span. Mikaylah Williams led all scorers with 10 points (5 1FG, 2 2FG). The game is the second-fastest of the tournament – men and women – through three days of competition.

Mikaylah Williams added 10 more points in the 21-12 victory over Ukraine. Through four games, she is averaging 9.3 points (37 total) and is the fourth-leading scorer among all athletes, and second amongst the women. 

She drained six one-pointers and a pair of two-pointers, with her second long range shot putting the U.S. up four (10-6) after a 3-0 Ukrainian run had cut the U.S. lead to two. The Americans capped off the win from there, finishing the game on an 11-6 run through the final three minutes of the contest. Kamorea ‘KK’ Arnold and Sarah Strong added four points apiece, with Sahara Williams following close behind with three.

Along with Ukraine (3-1), the USA qualified for the quarterfinals out of Pool D. The Americans are slated to face Netherlands at 3:40 a.m. ET on Saturday.

USA Basketball will be back in action Friday as the men tip off with Dominican Republic at 12:15 p.m. ET and Estonia at 2:05 p.m. ET on Friday in the conclusion of pool play.
