UConn Huskies women’s basketball star Paige Bueckers is one of the best in the game. She worked her way back from an injury in December of 2021, and it was a long, long road.

Bueckers suffered a tibial plateau fracture and meniscus tear and was able to return in the 2022 season. Unfortunately, Bueckers now faces another long, winding road to recovery. According to ESPN, Bueckers suffered a torn ACL during a pickup game.

This is devastating news for everybody involved in sports and the sports world in general. Huskies head coach Geno Auriemma spoke on the news and wished the best recovery for Bueckers.
