Sue Bird appears in a Corona ad alongside other college basketball legends like Devin Booker, Vince Carter, and Christian Laettner, but where did she go to school?
The “Shades of Blue” Corona commercial is well-known to everyone who has watched March Madness this year. It contains a slew of collegiate basketball legends debating whether the shade of blue is the greatest.
All three Vince Carters of North Carolina, Devin Booker of Kentucky, and Christian Laettner of Duke are featured in the advertisement as obvious “blue” blood products. Sue Bird, a legend in women’s basketball, also appears in the short commercial.
You can watch the commercial below (and should—it’s very good):
Some fans are wondering where Sue Bird played college ball because Carter, Booker, and Laettner have made it clear which colors of blue they prefer based on where they went to college.
Bird played college basketball for the Connecticut Huskies, which should come as no surprise to anyone. It’s only right that a legend of women’s basketball went to and played for the world’s best women’s basketball team.
Bird was a member of the UConn Huskies from 1998 to 2002, and he helped the team win two national championships, adding to the school’s already impressive trophy cabinet.
She went on to be the first overall choice in the WNBA Draft and has spent her whole professional career with the Seattle Storm, as well as playing overseas for a variety of clubs during the WNBA offseason.
Bird, a four-time WNBA champion and 12-time WNBA All-Star who also owns the league record for games played and games started, more than deserves to be in the Corona commercial alongside Carter, Booker, and Laettner.
