Young Scores Game-High 9, But USAB Falls, 14-12, To Brazil In Quarterfinals

DOHA, QATAR (October 16, 2019)—Jackie Young scored a game-high 9 points, Wednesday, in USA Basketball’s 3×3 quarterfinal meeting vs. Brazil at the World Beach Games, but it wasn’t enough as the U.S. dropped a 14-12 decision, ending its run at a gold medal (box score).

Young made 7 of 11 shots on the day, but her teammates combined to go just 3 for 18. The U.S. also missed all five of its shots from beyond the arc.

Brazil moves on to face France in one semifinal match-up, while the winner of the China vs. Mali game will take on the winner of the Netherlands vs. the Russia Federation in the other semifinal.
