2013 WNBA Finals MVP Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx has been explosive during her time across the pond playing for the Shanxi Xing RUI Flame. She is currently averaging 39 pts, 12.1 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4.3 steals a game, and has led the Flame to a 19-3 record as well as a trip to the China-WCBA Finals.
Needless to say it has been quite an offseason for the WNBA star. In January, Moore followed up a 33 point, 11 board, 11 steal triple-double against Shandong with a 54 point 20 rebound outing while facing Guangdong.
The sheer dominance she is displaying on the court, in addition to her positive attitude, drive, and commitment to the game make Moore a fierce competitor. The amount of respect she shows to both her teammates and her opposition is quite remarkable, Maya truly understands how to be both great and humble simultaneously.
Evan though Shanxi lost in game 1 of the WCBA Finals to Beijing 88-86, Moore had a spectacular outing posting 46 points, 11 steals, 8 boards, and adding 6 assists. Maya shot 62% from the field and shot an astonishing 14-14 from the free throw stripe.
Shanxi will play Beijing tonight in game 2 of the WCBA Finals, with a potential game 3 on March 2nd. Maya Moore, the two-time WNBA Champion; will try to help the Flame earn a WCBA title by contributing every way she can.
