Brittney Griner has had no equal in her stellar career at Baylor. Now she's part of a very select group. The 6-foot-8 senior star earned The Associated Press Player of the Year award for the second straight season Saturday.
As her UConn teammates struggled in the first half against Stanford on Monday, freshman Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis rose to the occasion -- just like another former Huskies player who once wore No. 23.
There were no surprises at the top of the 2011 WNBA Draft as the Minnesota Lynx selected Connecticut senior Maya Moore with the first overall pick.
Mechelle Voepel, Graham Hays and Charlie Creme take a look at the national semifinals on Sunday. One team is a unanimous favorite to reach the title game, but it's not UConn.
Connecticut's Maya Moore was named the national player of the year by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.
Connecticut's Maya Moore joins select company as only the second women's basketball player honored as a four-time All-American by The Associated Press.

Mechelle Voepel and Graham Hays go region-by-region to preview this weekend's Sweet 16 contests, which begin Saturday at noon ET on ESPN.
The Sweet 16 is set. Time for some first impressions, including the fact the tournament has a much less predictable plot than the past two seasons.
It's no secret that President Barack Obama is a big fan of Maya Moore, so it's no wonder that he's picked Connecticut to win the women's NCAA championship.
Monday's No. 1 seeds were no surprise. And it wouldn't be shocking to see all four reach the Final Four in Indianapolis.
As we prepare for the NCAA tournament, UConn isn't the overwhelming favorite it has been the past two seasons. But no one is going to be surprised if Maya Moore leads the Huskies to a three-peat.
With UConn's NCAA-record 90-game run over, coach Geno Auriemma can get back to his primary goal -- winning a third straight national title.
The past two seasons, there was a sense of inevitability about the Huskies. So Stanford's win Thursday over UConn gave the rest of the country what it needed: proof that the Huskies can be beaten.
