Ohio State transfer Dorka Juhász hopes playing for UConn women’s basketball will help her achieve her WNBA dreams and make her home country of Hungary proud

Juhász, a 6-foot-4 forward, comes from a big basketball family, her mother, Hajnalka Balazs, one of Hungary’s best players during her prime. Juhász’s dad, now a pediatric surgeon, was on a practice squad facing off against Balazs’s team when they first met.
