Paige Bueckers and Azzi Fudd on the power of music

UConn Huskies basketball stars Paige Bueckers and Azzi Fudd get geared up for games — and life’s moments — through music. These amazing women are not only elite athletes but also stellar students, with cool taste in music to boot. How do they do it all? Turns out, music is key.

“Music I probably use every day as a way to find peace”

– Paige Bueckers

Paige relies on the uplifting jams that push her to make it to class, soothing melodies to calm pre-game jitters, and energetic beats to hype up before practice. According to Azzi, “[music] can really help set the tone of the day [and] help with my mood.” Perhaps most importantly, music creates a sense of calm within the women’s hectic day-to-day. “I like to listen to a lot of R&B because it just brings me a sort of peace,” reflects Paige.

“I think it’s also important … that I have those moments to myself where I can just enjoy my alone time with my music.”

– Azzi Fudd

As athletes and scholars, these music lovers need quality sound that carries them throughout their busy days. The Bose Ultra Open Earbuds are Paige’s new essential earbuds for doing it all. “You can sort of forget that you have them on because it feels really like nothing’s even there,” says Paige. “I can still hear if coaches are talking to me, but I can also listen to my music at the same time.” For Azzi, “the Ultra Open Earbuds are going to be life and game changing, because [she’ll] be wearing them throughout [her] entire day on the court and off the court.”
