Maya Moore to miss China's all-star game

Former UConn star Maya Moore won't play in the China's WCBA All-Star game this weekend because of an ankle injury.

Moore who has been putting up incredible statistics (even for her) is to top vote-getter for the all-star game but rather than risk a setback which would limit her participation in the playoffs, she won't play in the all-star game.

Moore, playing for the Shanxi Xing Rui Flame, is leading the WCBA in scoring averaging 39.7 points per game. She is also averaging 12.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 3.7 steals and 1.3 blocks per game.

Closer to home, the Atlanta Journal Constitution had a story on Moore's Olympic ring being stolen and sold for $144.

Former Connecticut Sun draft pick Alba Torrens returned to action after nearly an entire calendar year leading to the possibility that she could make her way over to Connecticut for training camp.

The 6-foot-2 small forward plays for Galatsaray in Turkey and following the press conference announcing Anne Donovan as the new Connecticut Sun head coach, Sun general manager Chris Sienko said the franchise is hopeful that Torrens will come over to the U.S. to make her WNBA debut.
