Charles wins Wooden Award

Tina Charles beat out her former UConn teammate Maya Moore and future Connecticut Sun teammate Kelsey Griffin to win the women's Wooden Award.

Charles, who also won the Associated Press, Naismith and United States Basketball Writers Association player of the year awards, leaves UConn as the Huskies' all-time leading scorer and rebounder. She was also a driving force behind Connecticut teams which posted back to back 39-0 seasons.

Charles beat out Moore 252-251 in the closest voting in the seven years that there has been a women's Wooden Award winner. Griffin was a distant third with 114 points.
