UConn freshman Paige Bueckers became the first woman to win the Wooden Award as a freshman on Monday. 

Bueckers joins former Huskies star Maya Moore as one of two women underclassmen to ever win the Wooden Award. UConn has claimed six Wooden Awards since the honor was first awarded to a woman in 2004. 

“It means everything to me to win these individual awards, but it’s a true testament to our whole team and everything that they’ve done for me,” Bueckers told ESPN. “The coaching staff, for them to put me in this position, I’m just extremely thankful.”
