In a heartwarming display of camaraderie and support, UConn star Paige Bueckers took to social media to cheer on her ex-teammate Nika Mühl during her WNBA preseason debut with the Seattle Storm.

“Look at her go,” Bueckers exclaimed in a post in his X, foermerly Twitter account, capturing the essence of Mühl’s milestone moment as she stepped onto the WNBA court for the first time.

Despite having the talent to be a top pick in the WNBA draft, Bueckers opted to return to UConn for another college season, a decision that resonated with her fans and teammates alike.

The fan’s reactions

The basketball community was quick to notice Bueckers’ supportive gesture, with fans praising her bond with Mühl. “Paige proud of her twin Nika Mühl’s #WNBA debut,” one fan commented, highlighting the deep connection between the former teammates.

“You’re so supportive,” added another netizen, while someone else stated, “I miss you guys already.”

Fans also recognized Mühl’s debut with the Storm, with one saying “So proud of Nika!” while one more echoed the sentiment, “YES SEATTLE!! YAY NIKA!!! I need to go to a game asap.” “Ayee, let’s go Nika,” and “Let’s go Nika Mühl, you got this,” were some more comments praising Mühl’sWNBA debut.

The Storm closed the preseason strongly

Mühl, selected by the Storm as the No. 14 overall pick in this year’s draft, showcased her skills in the preseason game, contributing six points, three rebounds, and two assists in the Storm’s 85-59 victory against the Phoenix Mercury.

In the Storm’s preseason finale, Jewell Loyd led the charge with 18 points, while Nneka Ogwumike added 15, securing a dominant win over the Mercury at Climate Pledge Arena.

Seattle’s strong performance, fueled by Mühl’s impactful debut, sets the stage for an exciting regular season opener against the Minnesota Lynx next Tuesday, a game eagerly anticipated by fans and players alike.
