STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn forward Megan Walker has decided to forgo her senior season and enter the WNBA draft.
The decision came a day after Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma told reporters he had no reason to believe that anyone on his team with remaining eligibility would not return next season.
“Due to the unfortunate circumstances that caused the cancellation of the NCAA Tournament, it saddens me that I was not able to finish my junior season in the way that I would have liked,” Walker said Saturday in a statement. “I am, however, ready to move on to the next phase of my life and career.”
The NCAA Tournament was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
