UConn star Paige Bueckers and former Huskies guard Nika Muhl are close friends. But she admits they are stubborn and hard-headed people, so there are times when they engage in friendly banter that leads to playful arguments.

In one interview, the two recall one such moment when they argued about whether sharks lived in Croatian seas. Bueckers was apparently trying to make Muhl, who lives in Croatia, understand that there were sharks in their sea.

"Meanwhile, I live in Croatia and I know that there's no dangerous sharks in the Croatian sea," said Muhl.
"Yes, there's sharks in the Croatia sea. That's the argument that I won," Bueckers said laughingly.
"These arguments can go on forever. Nobody opens up the Google though," Muhl continued.

But Paige said that her findings were based on her Google research.

"I looked it up on Google and it said there's sharks in Croatia sea," Paige replied.

Nika Muhl ended the interview by saying that their arguments can go on for a long period of time but she always wins them at the end.

Fans may never know who actually wins the argument between the two, but they have seen them support each other like good friends.

Bueckers attended the 2024 WNBA draft in order to support Nika and Aaliyah Edwards on their special day. The 22-year-old was seen recording her friends when their names were called up on the stage.
