No question this has been a special, if not magical, freshman season for UConn's Maya Moore. Consider what she's done to date:

*Big East Player of the Year, the first time a freshman has ever won the award
*Big East Freshman of the Year
*Named Big East Freshman of the Week a record 10 times
*Named to the Big East's All-Freshman Team
*Set a new UConn freshman scoring record, passing Svetlana Abrosimova's old mark in seven fewer games
*Set the new team record for most consecutive games scoring in double figures to start a career

Tonight, if Moore scores 10 points or, er, more, she will break the program record by scoring in double figures in 32 consecutive games. Currently Moore shares the record with Diana Taurasi, arguably the greatest player in school history. Taurasi set the mark from Feb. 19, 2003 to Jan. 27, 2004.
