Bueckers, Boston, Clark top AP preseason All-americans
Paige Bueckers made history as a freshman and is poised for an even better sophomore season.
Uconn’s sensational guard was the latest Huskies player to be honored as a preseason Associated Press AllAmerica on Tuesday. She was a unanimous choice from the 29-member national media panel that selects the AP Top 25 each week.
Bueckers was joined on the fiveplayer team by fellow sophomore Caitlin Clark of Iowa, junior Aliyah Boston of South Carolina, and seniors Nalyssa Smith of Baylor and Rhyne Howard of Kentucky. Boston and Howard were on the preseason team last year.
Bueckers became the first freshman ever to win the AP’S Player of the Year award last March as she helped Uconn reach the Final Four.
