    Breanna Stewart spent four years playing at UConn and won a national championship in all four years.

    In 2016, Stewart became the first-ever unanimous Associated Press Player of the Year. She won the award in 2014 and 2015 as well. She is also the only four-time Final Four Most Outstanding Player in NCAA history.

    Although this is her first Olympics, Stewart is no USA Basketball rookie. She won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2014 FIBA World Championships and has twice been named the USA Basketball Female Athlete of the Year.

    Seattle made Stewart the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 WNBA Draft. She is averaging 19.2 points per game for the Storm.
