After an illustrious four-year college career with the Connecticut Huskies, Maya Moore has another feat to be proud of. The Minnesota Lynx made the superstar guard the number one overall pick in the WNBA draft Monday
Moore led UConn to two national titles, a 90-game winning streak and a 150-4 record during her four-year tenure, according to a Star Tribune report. The former two-time AP player of the year averaged 22.8 points-per-game this season, according to a ESPN article.
The Lynx organization now has something to smile about and can finally be optimistic coming off another dismal season where the Lynx went 13-21, according to ESPN. The franchise has made only two playoff appearances and has yet to win a playoff series, according to the Star Tribune.
The Star Tribune reported Moore's college career came to close after losing to Notre Dame 72-63 in the Final Four. Moore put up 36 points in the Huskies' loss.
ESPN reported Moore is the second straight number one overall pick out of UConn. Tina Charles was selected with the first pick by the Connecticut Sun in 2010 and went on to win the WNBA's rookie of the year award.
