NEW YORK (AP) _ 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.
