Maya Moore: Georgia High School Star Became Nation's Most Dominant College Basketball Player

The Connecticut Huskies won a Division I college basketball record 89th-straight game last night as guard Maya Moore dropped 41 points on the Florida St. Seminoles. She extended her nearly four-points-per-game lead over the next best major-conference player, and also chipped in a game-high 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, and a steal.

As a Georgia high school player Moore led Lawrenceville's Collins Hill Eagles to a 125-3 record. The school earned USA Today's 2007 national championship honors and three straight state titles. She and Candace Parker are the only two-time winners of the Naismith Prep Player of the Year Award, whose one-time honorees include LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Dwight Howard, plus Georgia Tech players Dennis Scott, Kenny Anderson, and Derrick Favors.

The Huskies went 36-2 in her freshman season, meaning she's gone 250-5 since middle school. Have you gone 250-5 since middle school? You have not.
