Freshman Breanna Stewart was one of the best players on a UConn team that won the national championship last night.
After Brittney Griner’s Baylor team was upset by Louisville, Stewart’s UConn Huskies stepped in to seize the title. She had 23 points in the final game and 29 in the semis, making 7 of 8 three-pointers between the two contests.
There isn’t a lot of video documentation of Stewart’s play at UConn this year, but based entirely on two clips of her high school days, we imagine you’ll be seeing a lot of Stewart highlights in years to come.
For one, this Hakeem-level post fake into an off-hand lefty hook at the McDonald’s All-American game.
For another, this alley-oop.
As the kids on the schoolyard would say, “Mama, how she do that?”
