The WNBA season is finally upon us and as always, former UConn stars will be front and center.

We preview all the former Huskies in the league, discussing whether or not anyone can stop Breanna Stewart, if Sue Bird’s legacy is bigger in the WNBA than at UConn, how Diana Taurasi is the entire Phoenix Mercury franchise, title aspirations for Napheesa Collier, Crystal Dangerfield and the Minnesota Lynx, if a change of scenery will help Kia Nurse, Megan Walker and Katie Lou Samuelson along with much more.

We also dive into the news of Paige Bueckers’ ankle surgery, talk about UConn’s new director of sports performance and shoutout Tamika Williams-Jeter’s new job as head coach of Wittenberg University.

Finally, we close the show with the moose spotted on UConn’s campus, have a review of the Geno Oreomma ice cream flavor and hit on a few major stories from around the sport.
