Paige Bueckers opts for UConn over WNBA

Paige Bueckers has long been regarded by many as one of the best college basketball players, known for her dangerous and versatile playing style. Instead of declaring for the 2024 WNBA draft, she announced her decision to return to play for the UConn Huskies for another year.

The star guard dealt with injury issues in the past few seasons and had to only play for a limited period of time. However, she stayed healthy this past season, averaging 21.9 points on 53% shooting from the floor, 5.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists.

The Huskies celebrated some of her best moments from the sensational season with a reel on their official Instagram account. The caption of the post showed how much the team trusted in its star player. “Art.”


The head coach of the team, Geno Auriemma, has always supported the star player even when her career was about to derail because of her ACL injuries. The coach is also responsible for bringing out the best of Paige Bueckers to the court.

Following UConn’s second-round win against Syracuse, Auriemma praised Paige.

“We have the best player in America,” Auriemma said. “And, you know, just saying that because the numbers in this world of analytics, the numbers say that she is.”

“And the whole stat sheet says that she is. And everybody that watched knows it, and we’re fortunate. And we get to go back to where it ended for us last year, and I think we’re a different team, different mindset, and we’re hoping for a different outcome.”
