UConn women's basketball: Huskies make history in WNBA Draft

  Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson and Morgan Tuck won four championships at UConn.

The UConn women's basketball program has made history once again.

Nine days after UConn became the first women's team to win four championships in a row, the Huskies became the first program to have three of their players selected to start the WNBA Draft. 

The Seattle Storm led the draft off by selecting Breanna Stewart, followed by the San Antonio Stars taking Moriah Jefferson and the Connecticut Sun selecting Morgan Tuck.

It should come as little surprise to see Stewart, Jefferson and Tuck make their mark like this.

The trio will go down as the most accomplished senior class ever in women's basketball. They became the first class to win four championships and set a record with 151 career wins. 

UConn has built an incredible dynasty under coach Geno Auriemma, and Thursday's draft serves as the latest proof.
