Yesterday we focused on the UConn men's basketball team and their impact players. We took a look at their impact players. Yes, a lot of great names were left off. Picking the top three is very challenging - because Jim Calhoun had the greatest impact on UConn basketball. Today, we look at the women's basketball team - that can even be more challenging, but maybe not.
Diana Taurasi - the Southern California girl - led UConn to three National Championships. Probably the greatest player to ever play the game. She went to four Final Fours, won four Big East Regular Season titles and two Big East Tournament Championships. She was apart of 70-game winning streak. Played on the greatest team to every play the game which was a perfect 39-0 and was named the Final Four MVP two years in a row.
Maya Moore was a winner. She went to four Final Fours, won two National Championships, and was a series of teams that won 90-games in a row. Moore was the National Player of the Year three times. Moore has the scoring record at UConn. She had one of the most successful college careers in the history of women's basketball. She continues to rewrite the history books at the pro level.
