Moore honored by Big East

UConn junior forward Maya Moore was named the Big East Player of the Week for the second time this season after averaging 22 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4.5 3-pointers per game in wins over Duke and Villanova.

It's the fifth straight time a player from UConn has won the award as Tina Charles won it the previous three weeks and Moore began the run by earning the honor on Dec. 28.

Moore's big week helped UConn maintain a stranglehold on the top spot in the Associated Press national poll. UConn is the unanimous No. 1 again and its 36th straight week atop the poll equals the longest continuous run at No. 1 set by Louisiana Tech in the early 1980s.
