UConn’s Paige Bueckers has taken the college basketball world by storm; just wait until best friend Azzi Fudd joins her next season

Though the NCAA made this a “free” year of eligibility for collegiate athletes, Fudd didn’t have a path to graduate early from Washington, D.C.’s St. John’s College High (Saylor Poffenbarger was the only 2021 UConn signee to join the team in January). Fudd is finishing her senior year coursework virtually, plays with her high school team in Maryland and Virginia and, in what’s become a Fudd family affair, watches a lot of UConn basketball. Fudd and Caroline Ducharme, another 2021 UConn signee, text back and forth during the games — during the close ones, “oh my gosh, we’re so nervous,” Fudd said, “and we’re not even playing.”
