The 2014 Youth Olympic Women’s Basketball Team, made up of De’Janae Boykin, Napheesa Collier, Arike Ogunbowale and Katie Lou Samuelson, took a break from training to visit the scenic mountains of Colorado Springs.
Members of the 2018 U.S. Youth Olympic Team shadow the 2018 USA National Team and find out what being a member of the world's most elite basketball team is all about.
Katie Lou Samuelson has enjoyed quite an illustrious basketball career, and the Huntington Beach, California, native hasn't even graduated high school yet. Samuelson, a senior at Mater Dei High School, has already won four gold medals with USA Basketball, including two in 2014 -- first as a member of the 2014 U17 World Championship Team and then with the 3x3 team that took gold at the Youth Olympic Games. Samuelson, who is committed to play for the University of Connecticut next fall, talks about her USA Basketball experience and what drives her to succeed.
