As a freshman in college, Bueckers was called “the best player in basketball” by former UConn star Diana Taurasi, and a “generational player” by South Carolina coach Dawn Staley. Bueckers stands 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) and plays the point guard position.
Five seconds into the game, the 5’11” guard scores on a mid-range pull-up. On the ensuing Buffalo possession, she intercepts a pass at midcourt and jogs in for a layup. On defense, the Royals are pressing, and Bueckers is everywhere.
The Paige Bueckers set the women’s basketball scene on fire last season with one of the greatest freshman seasons in history.
For most of the men’s game, a debut season with unanimous All-American honors and a handful of National Player of the Year awards will precede the journey to the NBA Draft.
She will turn 21 next year, so she still won’t meet the age requirement, but she can complete her degree in three years and move on to professionals. It is not uncommon for college athletes to earn a bachelor’s degree in the first three years of their eligibility, then take graduate courses in their fourth year.
