    Breanna Stewart is a Senior for the UConn women's basketball team.

    What is her greatness you ask ?

    She has won 3 national titles in 3 years at UConn, going for her 4th title in the next two weeks. She has won MOP for those 3 Final Fours, already won 2X National player of the year. Her Career record is 147-5.Currently on a 71 winning streak.


    Has any player in College Basketball history ever won 4/4 titles in their career?

    Great player, tall, shoots well from the outside, rebounds and defends. Also benefits from playing for UCONN which is the most dominant sports team in all sports (of course she has contributed greatly to that dominance). She will have a big impact on WNBA (though my favorite will continue to be Elena Della Donne... for more reasons than playing ability).

    I know women's basketball gets laughed at on Clutch but I really like women's college basketball and even girls high school ball ('course, biased as my daughter plays high school ball).

    No, but UCLA won 7 titles in a row. The only reason guys like Lew Alcindor did not win 4/4 was because UCLA/Wooden had a rule that freshmen were not allowed to play on the Varsity team. So, Alcindor and scores of other UCLA players won 3/3. btw: Walton got beat as a senior to end the streak, by David Thompson and NC State. That was fun to watch.

    There are only about 6-7 schools that actually compete in women's college basketball. Its what makes records like this and pat summit's not that meaningful. You can't compare to men's college basketball where there are about 50 competitive programs.

    One other factor... college women will play all four years, while college men will play a year or two before going pro.

    For some reason I'm thinking about that radio spot Bryce Drew did with Sheryl Swoopes, where he was saying "wimmynzz" every three seconds.
