Maya Moore thrilled to witness title No. 8

It goes without saying that Maya Moore had a part of UConn's sixth and seventh national titles and she was downright giddy about having the chance to be at New Orleans Arena when the Huskies captured their record-tying eighth national title on Tuesday night.

"It is amazing and I am really grateful to have played for him and be here in person to watch him win his eighth," Moore said.

"They don't quit, as hard as it is and the expectations, the struggles, they don't quit and I am so happy to see them finish it off."

It was especially gratifying for Moore to see former teammate Kelly Faris leave UConn as a national champion.

"It is so sweet," Moore said. "I remember sitting on that podium with Kelly next to me and we just lost to Notre Dame and for her to go out, not the way I went out, but to achieve it and the way they did it, it is great."

Kalana Greene and Mel Thomas were among the other former Huskies who were in UConn's locker room following the national championship game.
