Seattle Storm’s Nika Muhl Has WNBA Fans In Awe After Insane Half-Court Shot

Nika Muhl has become a women’s basketball fan favorite over the past two months. 

While the Croatian guard was already popular among UConn fans during her NCAA tenure, Muhl’s excellent defense against Caitlin Clark during the 2024 NCAA tournament made fans fall in love.

And it’s this defensive performance which catapulted Muhl to the WNBA draft, and got her selected by the Seattle Storm with the No. 14 overall pick.

Even then, it wasn’t guaranteed that Muhl would make their team in 2024. But she defied the odds once again, and made the Storm’s roster for the 2024 WNBA season.

And with her WNBA regular season debut taking place on Tuesday, Muhl has fans eager to see what she can do.

If Muhl’s pregame performance during a half-court shooting contest is any indication, she seems locked in.

The Seattle Storm posted a video of Muhl tying her teammate during the contest.

Fans are loving Muhl’s drained shot.

“nikaaaa!!! always killing it” one Storm fan wrote.

“I love Nika!! The team is going to be great this year!” sand another.

Muhl seems to be the perfect fit for Seattle, and appears poised for a breakout rookie season.
