Candace Parker, Maya Moore show out on National Team camp, day one

Day one practice report:

Parker, Moore Put on a Show

It makes sense that USA Basketball’s veterans would be the ones best equipped to shine in camp and that was the case Monday as Candace Parker and Maya Moore earned accolades from Auriemma for their performances.

Parker won gold at the last two Olympics while Moore was on that 2012 U.S. Olympic team plus the 2010 USA World Championship squad. During the scrimmages they stood out from the crowd, at times dominating players in one-on-one battles or setting up easy shots out of double teams.

“Those two are able to do a variety of things and it makes it easier for them because they know the system, they know the drills,” Auriemma said. “Those two had really good days.”
