Once they got past the fear of actually speaking to Geno Auriemma, Connecticut recruits Katie Lou Samuelson, Napheesa Collier and De'Janae Boykin became fast friends while leading Team USA to a three-on-three gold medal.
Jon Samuelson has two daughters playing basketball at Stanford and another headed to UConn, and while he's helped hone their games in hidden gyms throughout Southern California, finding him at games is no easy task.
Connecticut scored another big win over the weekend, this time on the recruiting trail. Napheesa Collier, the No. 7 prospect in the 2015 class, gave a verbal commitment to Geno Auriemma and the Huskies.
