Paige Bueckers leads No. 2 UConn to win over No. 1 South Carolina


In Storrs, Connecticut, the legend of freshman Paige Bueckers continues to grow with each passing game.


In a game in which offense was hard to come by, with both teams shooting below 40% from the field, Bueckers knocked down 14 of 26 shot attempts.


Bueckers' shooting outburst carried a Huskies offense that didn't have another player score in double figures, and she managed to stuff the stat sheet in other ways to lead her team to a victory.


Bueckers' steals were a key factor in the Gamecocks' 22 turnovers, which helped keep their leading scorer, Zia Cooke, out of rhythm all night.


Bueckers' impressive all-around performance garnered reaction from two of the greatest UConn Huskies of all time, Breanna Stewart and Rebecca Lobo, and many others on Twitter.


In her past five games, three of which were against ranked opponents, she is averaging 28.4 points, including three 30-plus-point performances.
