WNBA.com: Maya Moore Named WNBA Rookie of the Month for July

Maya Moore's July wasn't necessarily a whole lot better than her June, statistically at least - she made small improvements here and there that added up to being among the few rookies whose VCR increased. But that Moore led all rookies in scoring and steals and was second in rebounds and assists is telling: while most of the top rookies entering the month cooled off a bit, Moore remained consistent and arguably became more efficient. A player to (continue) to watch: Danielle Robinson, who is having quite the rookie point guard season. The biggest improvements (by VCR): Danielle McCray and Jenna O'Hea.

Stanford-UConn Agree to Extend Series

As reported by the Hartford Courant's John Altavilla, Stanford and UConn have agreed to a two year extension to their regular season women's basketball series. Geno Auriemma: "We've played them in the last three Final Fours and I hope we make it four times this season."

"If she walked away today, she would still be in the top three."

An article from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about how Connecticut's Maya Moore stays in touch with her church in Atlanta provides some interesting quotes about Moore's place - current and historic - in college basketball from Georgia Tech coach MaChelle Joseph and Atlanta Dream coach Marynell Meadors. Joseph puts her up there with Teresa Edwards, Cheryl Miller and Lisa Leslie. "No doubt she’s on track to become the greatest player ever." (It was Joseph who provided the quote above.) Meadors said, "She’s the great one coming out this year." Meadors, if you remember, was a coach on the United States FIBA gold medal team.
