Bio:
The reigning WNBA Rookie of the Year re-joins her college coach after the two helped to compile the most prolific run in women’s basketball history, winning 90 straight games and two NCAA titles at the University of Connecticut. Moore possesses a great all-around game, with the ability to shoot the three, get to the basket for her own shot or to set up her teammates with her great court vision.

The first-time Olympian helped lead the Minnesota Lynx to their first WNBA title in her rookie campaign and hopes to do the same as an Olympic rookie. The 6-foot wing is averaging 14.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game with Minnesota this season.

Quote:
On pressure to win a gold medal: "That’s probably the biggest blessing that we have is that pressure. I think that’s when we’re at our best. I think it’s when any competitor is at their best is when stakes are high."
