STORRS, Connecticut — UConn women’s basketball star Paige Bueckers may be helping the Huskies win from the sidelines this season, but that is not stopping her influence on the sport.
The 21-year-old, who turned down an opportunity to join the WNBA early to remain a Husky for another year, has made Fortune Magazine’s 40 Under 40 list.

The junior guard is listed under “culture and society” alongside singer Rihanna, filmmaker Lena Waithe, French soccer star Kylian Mbappe, social media star Khaby Lame, podcaster Alex Cooper, U.S. Department of Labor chief economist Joelle Gamble and Christian Smalls, interim president of the Amazon Labor Union.

In its write-up, the magazine praised Bueckers for taking advantage of the NCAA rule change that allows collegiate athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness.

Paige Bueckers, carrying a clipboard and whistle, humorously told her team in a photoshoot that she is now "Coach P."

In this ESPN video she posted, Bueckers wrote, "Was a pleasure to join the NBA Today and talk hoops and a little preview of Coach P🫡 Thank you @malika_andrews and @espn for having me!"

Bueckers said, "I’m really excited for the new perspective that I can bring to the game. For a lot of them, it’s an adjustment period. They’re going to have to listen to me. But I think I’m going to have a lot of words of wisdom.”
