UConn quartet members of WNBA championship team

Maya Moore can add another WNBA title to her collection of championships and she has plenty of company from UConn country.

Renee Montgomery, Asjha Jones and Kalana Greene were also members of the Minnesota team that defeated Indiana 69-52 in the deciding game in the best of five game WNBA championship series.

This is the ninth time in the last 10 years that the WNBA champ had at least one former Husky on the roster. Ironically, Indiana was the lone exception back in 2012.

It is the first title for Jones, Montgomery and Greene bringing the total of UConn products to win a WNBA title to 13.
