Fellow athletes and teammates reacted to her post, with UConn alumnus and Dallas Wings captain Lou Lopez Senechal saying she couldn’t wait for the second half of Bueckers’ message.

“Can’t wait for part 2,” Lopez Senechal wrote.

Lopez Senechal could be referring to another senior night next year, as Bueckers has declared that she will remain with UConn for the 2024–25 season.

Hungarian player and Minnesota Lynx forward Dorka Juhasz delved into Beuckers’ remaining two years with UConn after spending her first three years with Ohio State.

“I guess I started a movement with two senior nights,” she posted.

During her speech on the Huskies’ senior night, Bueckers addressed the crowd and told them she would return for another year.

“I know everybody wants me to address the elephant in the room. This will not be my last senior night for UConn basketball. I’m coming back,” Bueckers said.

An additional year could earn her more money before she sets foot in the pro ranks.

Bueckers is listed as a redshirt junior on UConn’s website; however, she has four years of NCAA basketball eligibility.
