MAYA MOOREGame 775 | June 28, 2011 | Maya Moore, Cheryl Reeve
After 12 seasons as one of the worst teams in the WNBA, everything came together for the Lynx in 2011. Moore, the league's number one draft choice, was named Rookie of the Year and Reeve was Coach of the Year as the team finished 27-7 and rolled through the WNBA playoffs. Former Gopher star Lindsay Whalen was named to the WNBA fist team, and Seimone Augustus was named Playoff MVP. The championship team received a welcome parade through the streets of downtown Minneapolis.
Game 793 | June 26, 2012 | Maya Moore, Devereaux Peters, Alan Horton
As the defending WNBA champions, the Lynx were heavily favored to repeat in 2012. Horton, the team's play-by-play voice, asked Moore to share memories of her recent Gold Medal as a member of the U.S. Women's Basketball Team. Moore, the WNBA Rookie of the Year in 20ll, once again made the All-WNBA team as the Lynx recorded the league's best regular-season record before losing to Indiana in the playoff finals. Peters, the team's first-round draft choice out of Notre Dame, played sparingly on the veteran-dominated team.
