How did women's basketball phenom Breanna Stewart make history? Her success has been a long time coming.
Most college basketball players set out to win a national title during their college careers. But four years ago, when Breanna Stewart said she came to Connecticut to win four national titles, that seemed a little extreme. Not anymore.
The 6'4" senior forward ended her college career by leading the Huskies to a win over the Syracuse Orange to claim a fourth straight championship. Stewart is the only college player — male or female — to win four national titles. She amassed a seemingly never-ending list of personal accolades. And she fundamentally altered women's basketball.
When people talk about a once-in-a-generation talent, Breanna Stewart is the kind of player they mean.
So how did Stewart make history? Her success has been a long time coming.
