Maya Moore named WNBA Rookie of the Month

Former UConn star Maya Moore was named the WNBA's Rookie of the Month for August
as she led all rookies with a 12.3 scoring average and also was No. 1 in rebounding (4.6), steals (1.8) and minutes played (27.2). She was also in the top three in assists (2.2) and with a .424 mark from 3-point range.

It is the second straight month in which Moore, who the Minnesota Lynx took with the top overall pick in April's WNBA draft, was named the league's top rookie.

Perhaps the most important statistic in Moore's eyes is that she is a major reason why Minnesota is in first place in the Western Conference with a 24-6 record.
