Bueckers is entering her final season at UConn.

The immediate post-Caitlin Clark era in NCAA women’s basketball looks like it will be defined by two players: USC guard JuJu Watkins and Connecticut guard Paige Bueckers. The two squared off in an intense Elite Eight contest last season and are scheduled to meet again during the 2024/25 regular season in a potential preview of the 2025 national championship game.

Paige Bueckers issues a warning to NCAA opponents that should not be forgotten

While Bueckers has clearly been enjoying her offseason prior to her final year representing UConn, the projected top pick in the 2025 WNBA Draft has gone viral recently as she has sought to remind everyone — opponents especially — that she is a force they will have to reckon with next season.

Bueckers on Saturday uploaded six new photos to her Instagram page, which boasts two million followers. She captioned the collage by saying “still hoopin on the low,” which generated immediate reactions — including from Los Angeles Sparks rookie Cameron Brink, who wrote “miss bucket getter” in reference to Bueckers’ defining trait.

Bueckers last season averaged 21.9 points per game while shooting 53 percent from the floor — and better than 40 percent on her 3-point attempts. After she missed the entire 2022/23 season through injury, Bueckers guided UConn back to the Final Four — where the Huskies narrowly lost to Clark’s Iowa Hawkeyes.

With Clark, Brink, and Angel Reese now in the WNBA, Bueckers and the Huskies will have every chance to end a rare eight-year championship drought — although Watkins’ USC Trojans and the Dawn Staley-led South Carolina Gamecocks will make every effort to stop her.
