UConn’s Moore wins Honda Award
Senior named woman in college basketball for 2010-11
NEW YORK -- Maya Moore of Connecticut has won the Honda Sports Award as the top woman in college basketball.
The senior led UConn to four straight Final Four appearances and two NCAA titles in her college career. The Huskies had a 150-4 record during her four years.
The other finalists were Baylor’s Brittney Griner, Xavier’s Amber Harris and Stanford’s Nnemkadi Ogwumike. Moore was recently selected with the first pick in the WNBA draft by the Minnesota Lynx.
Moore becomes eligible for the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year honor, which will be awarded June 27 in New York. She won the Honda-Broderick Cup last year, and could join swimmer Tracy Caulkins (Florida 1982, ’84) as the only athlete to repeat that honor.
