Lynx sign top pick Maya Moore

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Lynx have signed Maya Moore, the first pick in this year's WNBA draft.

The team announced the signing Thursday. Terms were not disclosed.

Moore won two national championships at Connecticut, and is a four-time
All-American who averaged 22.8 points this season.

She also was the
only collegian to play on the U.S. women's national team that won a
gold medal at the world championship in October.

Moore was part of a record 90-game winning streak during her
college career. She joins a Lynx team that has made the playoffs
just twice since entering the league in 1999.

Moore's first on-court action with the Lynx will be May 24 in an exhibition game against the Indiana Fever.

Minnesota's regular
season begins June 3 at Los Angeles, followed by a home game
against the Sparks June 5.
