WNBA star Stewart says she was abused

WNBA star Breanna Stewart says she was sexually abused as a child.

The Seattle Storm forward describes the abuse in an essay posted Monday on the Players' Tribune website.

Stewart says she was first molested at a relative's house in upstate New York when she was 9 by a man who continued the abuse for two years.

Stewart says she eventually told her parents, who called police. She says the man was arrested and confessed but doesn't indicate what happened to him.

Her essay is titled ''Me Too,'' a nod to the social media movement started following abuse allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

She says her father told her that what happened to her is not a ''dirty little secret'' and that when she was comfortable telling her story, it might save someone's life.

Stewart led UConn to four national championships, was the No. 1 pick in the 2016 WNBA draft and was the WNBA rookie of the year.
