UConn star guard Paige Bueckers underwent surgery to repair an osteochondral defect on her right ankle, The Athletic reported.

The surgery took place Friday, and the school expects her to take part in preseason camp in September.

A freshman in 2020-21, Bueckers swept the major postseason honors, winning the Wooden Award and Naismith Trophy and being named Associated Press Player of the Year.

The 5-foot-11 Minnesota native led the Huskies in points (20.0), assists (5.8) and three-point field goal percentage (46.4 percent). She scored 18 points in UConn’s 69-59 loss in a national semifinal to Arizona on April 2 at San Antonio.
