UConn star Aaliyah Edwards declares for WNBA

Aaliyah Edwards

UConn forward Aaliyah Edwards declared her intention to enter the 2024 WNBA Draft on Thursday.

Edwards had the option of returning for one more season due to the NCAA’s COVID-19 exemption, but declined. In doing so, she assured fans that she was committed to seeing the Huskies’ tournament appearance through to the end.

“I’m all in, ready to bring that championship glory back to Storrs with my squad by my side,” Edwards said in her announcement video. “Let’s have one last dance.”

A third-team AP All-American in 2022-23, Edwards was named first-team All-Big East this season after averaging 17.8 points and 9.3 rebounds for the 10th-ranked Huskies.

After debuting as a freshman in a reserve role, Edwards has started 95 games over the last three seasons. For her career, she has averaged 13.3 points and 7.3 rebounds per contest.

The No. 3 seeded Huskies will begin their tournament with a game Saturday afternoon against Jackson State.
