Rebecca Lobo, Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore.

Probably the three biggest legends in the annals of UConn women's basketball, along with coach Geno Auriemma.

Breanna Stewart is right there with them; having accomplished her incoming freshman goal of winning four national championships.

She followed that last summer with a tremendous rookie year in the WNBA, winning rookie of the year honors and helping the Seattle Storm return to the playoffs.

An offseason in China further developed her game, but injury eliminated her from playing in the playoffs and brought her back to the United States early. With that return, Stewart has had the longest break from basketball she has had since, well, ever.

Now she is healthy, relaxed, and in Dallas cheering on her former teammates with a bunch of other alumni.

At the airport she took time to talk for this combined Dishin & Swishin podcast/StormCast. 

Topics include:

  • Health and preparation for the upcoming season
  • Thoughts on WNBA transactions and the addition of Carolyn Swords to Seattle
  • Playing overseas and how that has helped her game
  • What it is like watching UConn this year, staying in touch with the team, and being a spectator instead of a player at the Final Four
  • What the Final Four is like for the players, and the compressed schedule this year caused by the Friday/Sunday games
  • Thoughts on UConn and their season
  • What the WNBA draft is like as a player being drafted
  • All-star weekend coming to Seattle

We hope you have enjoyed our podcasts for Final Four week with Kelly Graves and Doug Bruno, and this one as well!

Let's hope for some great basketball this weekend, as they cut down the nets in Dallas!
