VIDEO: MN native Paige Bueckers talks ahead of NCAA game
(ABC 6 News) – Four of women’s college basketball powerhouses are set to put on some shows Friday at the Target Center in Minneapolis for the Women’s NCAA Tournament.
Paige Bueckers of University of Connecticut is the only native Minnesotan playing, and says she’s here to win a title.
"I think there’s a reason why I’m back here and why I’m getting this opportunity again. Like I said, it’s crazy what God does in your life. And just to be back here to get that opportunity and experience again, and obviously want a different outcome. I’m hoping to see a lot of Minnesota basketball fans… it’s an awesome experience and opportunity for the state. I’ve been in this locker room before during a state tournament in high school, so it’s all familiar," said Bueckers.
