Hi, I'm Ayanna Patterson. I am currently a freshman forward on the UConn women's basketball team. I am originally from Fort Wayne Indiana where I attended Homestead High School. Before college I was the No. 4-ranked recruit by ESPN … No. 1 wing in the 2022 senior class … 2022 McDonald's, Jordan Brand, and SLAM All-American … averaged 25.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks as a senior at Homestead High … 2022 Indiana Miss Basketball and won a gold medal with the USA U19 3x3 team in 2021. Outside of basketball, I enjoy playing video games like Fifa 23 and Fortnite. I also am a big sneaker collector. I own all the Jordan 1's through 14s. I am also big in volunteering with children in my local community back home and here in Connecticut at the Boys and girls club in Hartford. I am also fighting and helping create a positive change in the world helping children and people with autism.
