Today UConn Sr. All-Everything (on and off the court) Maya Moore was named the 2010-11 Capitol One Academic All-America® of the Year (University Division) for the 2nd-consecutive season and to the 2010-11 Capitol One All-America® First Team (University Division) for the third year in a row. Moore becomes the first ever University Division athlete to win All-America® of the Year honors twice. Last year, Moore was the third UConn women’s basketball player to earn multiple first team Academic All-America® selections, joining Leigh Curl and Rebecca Lobo and the third UConn women’s basketball player to earn Academic All-American of the Year status joining Lobo (1995) and Jennifer Rizzotti (1996). She is an Individualized Major with a 3.70 GPA.
Congratulations Maya, for all your hardwork and dedication on the court and more importantly, in the classroom...you make us UConn fans very proud to call you one of "Our Girls"!!!! Your career is quickly winding down and I hope you savor ever last moment of it because I know I will and so will all of "your" fans.
