Maya Moore put up incredible numbers all season for Minnesota and now she’s got her first WNBA MVP award.

Moore earned the league’s most valuable player on Thursday, hours before the Lynx opened their Western Conference semifinals playoff series with the San Antonio Stars.

 

Moore led the league in scoring, averaging a career-best 23.9 points. She set a WNBA record by scoring at least 30 points 12 times, including in four straight games. The scoring mark was the third-highest average in league history, trailing only Phoenix’s Diana Taurasi’s 25.3 points in 2006 and 24.1 points in 2008.

Moore received 35 of the 38 first place votes, surpassing Taurasi and Atlanta’s Angel McCoughtry. Los Angeles’ Candace Parker was fourth and Phoenix’s Brittney Griner finished fifth.
