It went slightly under the radar due to Caitlin Clark, Angel Reese and South Carolina taking up most of the headlines, but Paige Bueckers was healthy and back to her very best throughout the 2023-24 season.

After a year recovering from knee surgery, Bueckers led UConn to the NCAA Tournament semi-finals, where the limping Huskies fell to Caitlin Clark and Iowa.

Despite the disappointment, it was an impressive season for UConn.

Paige Bueckers delivers positive message after Iowa loss

After taking some time to collect her thoughts, Bueckers posted an end-of-season message on Instagram.

“A full season of healthy basketball, I am forever grateful. Extremely proud, but far from satisfied.

A season of overcoming adversity, building character, faith, hope and strength. Against all odds, wouldn’t trade this team for the world. Still got a whole lot left to prove.”

With Clark out of the picture, Bueckers has a clear runway to turn into the most marketable player in women’s college basketball next season.

Bueckers and JuJu Watkins are probably the most talented players in the college scene heading into the 2024-25 season.

Bueckers is looking to get back to the National Championship, where she fell short in 2022 to South Carolina.

The loss to Clark this year looks likely to fuel Bueckers and UConn.
