ESPN says Maya Moore should be like Candace Parker and Epiphany Prince and go pro – forget that senior year.
The Connecticut Sun must have tanked last year so they could get Tina Charles. (*wink*) The LA Times points out that the Sun will draft her tomorrow, and asserts that the Sparks need guards. Aside from the terrific lead on that story, they’re off.
Hoopfeed reports two interesting items:
1. President Obama called the UConn team this morning to congratulate them, and called their winning streak “unreal.”
2. UCLA Coach Nikki Caldwell tweeted yesterday that she was going to meet former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Hoopfeed says Caldwell was “speechless” when Rice said, “I know who you are – great season.”
Hoopfeed also picked this up: The Connecticut Sun has traded Chante Black and Amber Holt to the Tulsa Shock in exchange for the number 7 pick tomorrow, and their second-round pick next year. Wow! Wonder who they’ve got their eyes on?
