Sue Bird joins fellow college basketball legends Devin Booker, Vince Carter and Christian Laettner in a Corona commercial, but where did she go to school?
Anyone watching March Madness this year is well-familiarized with the “Shades of Blue” Corona commercial. It features a bevy of college basketball legends arguing about the best shade of blue.
The advertisement has some obvious “blue” blood products with Vince Carter out of North Carolina, Devin Booker out of Kentucky, and Christian Laettner out of Duke. The other star of the short advert is women’s hoops legend Sue Bird.
You can watch the ad below (and you should — it’s pretty well done):
However, with Carter, Booker and Laettner being obvious as to which shades of blue they consider the best based on where they went to college, some fans are asking where exactly Sue Bird played her college ball.
Where did Sue Bird go to college?
Not that this should be a surprise to anyone, but Bird attended UConn for her college basketball career. It goes to figure that an icon of women’s basketball attended and played for the most iconic women’s basketball program on the planet.
While playing for the Huskies from 1998-2002, Bird helped capture two national championships, adding to UConn’s wide collection of banners. She went on to be the No. 1 pick in the WNBA Draft thereafter and has spent her entire pro career playing for the Seattle Storm — in addition to playing overseas in the WNBA offseason for a variety of teams.
A four-time WNBA Champion and 12-time WNBA All-Star who also holds the league record for games played and games started, suffice it to say that Bird more than deserves to be among Carter, Booker and Laettner in the Corona commercial.
