UConn's Breanna Stewart trying to buck history

It hasn't always been easy for the latest prodigy to deliver on the biggest stage.

In Nykesha Sales' first Final Four game she only had five points on 1 of 2 shooting in 1995. Six years later Diana Taurasi was 1 of 15. Seven years later Maya Moore's freshman season ended with her missing 13 of her 19 shots against Stanford.

Now it is time for Breanna Stewart to try to put forth another impactful NCAA tournament appearance.

She certainly sounds like she is ready to roll.

"I am anxious but at the same time it is something I am really looking forward to," Stewart said, "It is the Final Four and I think it is going to be really exciting. New Orleans has been great so far and I am looking forward to playing tomorrow.

"Just to get  to where we are right now makes it good. Obviously there is more that we want to do for this season and hopefully with a win tomorrow we will continue our season and go for a national championship (on Tuesday)."

Hopefully?? I love that Stewart kid. She said hopefully we'll win the next game. She's honest.

I forgot Sales and Maya's bad freshmen games--but I remembered the Diana's 1 for 15--she was so cocky, yet she was a kid. I remember saying to friends--there is too much hype about the kid-geno needs to get her out of St Louis and protect her. He didn't and she got freshmen nerves.

But who really cares if Stewies or MoJo is great this year. We know they'll be back next year and they will be great--39 and 0 next year, count on it.
