Breanna Stewart brought home both the awards she was nominated for individually Wednesday night, with 'Best Female Athlete' and 'Best Collegiate Athlete' during the 2016 ESPY Awards ceremony, as well as Best Team with her teammates from the University of Connecticut, the team announced.

This is not Stewart's first time winning "Best Female Collegiate Athlete" as she won the award following her sophomore season back in 2014.

The Seattle Storm rookie is leading the league in rebounds per game with 9.7, comes in at fourth in scoring racking up 19.5 points per game, and with her 1.9 blocks per game, she is third in the league. Thus far in the season, Stewart has been named the WNBA Rookie of the Month two times in May and June. With the numbers she is currently putting up, she is a favorite to win the WNBA Rookie of the Year this season.

Her career at UConn is one that will forever be remembered, as she is one of three players to have won four straight NCAA Division one championships. During her four years as a Huskie, she had an overall record of 151-5 and led her team in scoring the last three seasons at the University.
