UConn fans patiently awaiting top recruit Bueckers

Sports

She grew up rooting for UConn and the all-time greats.

5’11” Minnesota native Paige Bueckers glides up and down the floor. 

She can fill it up, but the long, lanky combo guard can do a lot more.

If you’re looking for a comparison, Bueckers likes to play like a combo of former Huskies.

Watching her run the show with a confident stride does resemble Taurasi.

With over 2,000 players at one tournament, Bueckers drew a lot of attention. Everyone wanted to get a glimpse of the #1 high school player in the country.

Her AAU coach, Tara Starks, said UConn is getting a complete player.

Husky fans and the coaching staff will have to wait for Bueckers, she still has a whole year of high school to go.

By the looks of things, it will be worth the wait for UConn.
