Heavy UConn Presence – Bird, Taurasi, Moore, Cash – On WNBA's List Of Best Ever

There is a strong Connecticut flavor on the WNBA's list of the 20 greatest and most influential players in the league's history.

The list, announced Tuesday morning on ESPN, includes former UConn players Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Maya Moore and Diana Taurasi. Also on the list is former Connecticut Sun guard Lindsay Whalen.

The league unveiled the names on the anniversary of the WNBA's first game: New York Liberty vs. Los Angeles Sparks on June 21, 1997. The league is celebrating its 20th season and recently announced plans to honor the 20 most important players, a list selected by a 15-member panel of media members, former players and coaches.
