BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) As Karlie Samuelson's Stanford team was taking down Notre Dame in the Lexington Regional, her self-described biggest fan was watching on a computer, about 800 miles away inside a locker room in Connecticut.
"It's very nerve-wracking," said UConn guard Katie Lou Samuelson, as the Cardinal climbed back into what would eventually be a 76-75 win. "Right now, I feel very sick to my stomach watching their game. But I get that nervous for every game she plays. It's harder to watch."
Katie Lou is the youngest of three Samuelson sisters. Karlie, who scored 15 points against the Irish on Sunday, is a senior at Stanford. Bonnie, who also played for the Cardinal, graduated in 2015.
