Who is Paige Bueckers dating?

Paige is best known for her faith and for her desire to keep her personal life separate from her time on the court, but she has been linked to several men throughout her time at UConn. The latest person that Paige is reportedly dating is fellow UConn student and basketball player Matt Freeman.

She was previously rumored to be dating Oklahoma's star quarterback Spencer Rattler, who she first met in high school.

Some have also speculated that Paige might be dating Gonzaga basketball star Jalen Suggs, although the two have maintained that they are just friends and support one another's careers.

"I think the coolest thing about Paige is how resilient she is," Caitlin said. "Obviously, she's kind of been dealt a tough hand. And you know, that girl only has positive things to say about her teammates. And the way she carries herself on and off the court, the way she works hard — none of that has changed since I've known her."

Caitlin added that she also admires Paige's relentless work ethic.

"Since she was in middle school, she's always worked that same way," Caitlin added. "She's always had that fire. She's always been a great leader. And I really, honestly, couldn't be happier for her, and the year that she's had, and the way she's led this team back to the Final Four when they've kind of been dealt a tough hand as a program.

Caitlin also added that she admires Paige in part because she takes full accountability for her team and how they play, whether that's good or bad. "And they never made excuses. And to me, I think that's something you just really admire as a competitor more than anything. So I think it's really cool."
