The team that’s been the face of women’s college basketball since the mid-90s is currently undefeated (7-0), but has had their schedule ravaged by COVID-19, like most teams playing during a pandemic. So far, at least six of UConn’s games have been canceled or postponed.
However, the games they have played have been a showcase for Bueckers who was heralded as the recruit that could end their five-year national championship drought. Up in Storrs, Connecticut, five years is an eternity, as it’s the longest they’ve gone without winning a title since their first in 1995. (And that’s a great trivia question.)
Bueckers, a 5-11 point guard, had a ton of hype surrounding her entering college due to her extensive preps resume. So far, she’s been just as good, or better, than advertised.
She currently leads UConn in points (18.9), assists (5.1), steals (2.7), 3-point percentage (50%), and minutes (34.9).
