Minnesota Lynx guard Maya Moore has received the June WNBA Cares Community Assist Award presented by State Farm for inspiring youth, supporting underprivileged children and improving criminal justice reform.
Before Minnesota’s 2018 home opener, a poster of Moore debuted outside Target Center. After a picture of 5-year-old Liliana Sikakane posing in front of the billboard went viral, Moore and the Lynx invited Liliana and her father, Justice, to their practice facility, where she received a surprise meet-and-greet from the five-time WNBA All-Star as well as a signed Moore poster. Liliana and her family were also invited to Minnesota’s game on June 1, where they sat courtside for pregame warmups.
