Former UConn star Breanna Stewart wins Honda Cup
Baylor's Brittney Griner, the 2012 winner,was the last basketball player to earn the honor. Rebecca Lobo and Jen Rizzotti gave UConn back to back winners in 1995 and 1996 while Maya Moore won in 2010 and 2011 to join swimming legend Tracy Caulkins as the only two-time winner of the Honda Cup.
Stewart was a finalist for the award for the third straight season as gymnast Kim Jacob was the winner in 2014 and swimmer Missy Franklin was the honoree last season.
Stewart had 20 games with at least 20 points as a senior with 16 double doubles as she headlined a senior class that was the first in Division I history to win four consecutive national titles.
Stewart finished as UConn's career leader with 414 blocked shots, was second with 2,676 points, third with 1,179 rebounds.
She was taken first overall in the WNBA Draft by the Seattle Storm and is currently second in the WNBA in rebounding and eighth in scoring.
