Maya Moore made big headlines yesterday after the women's college basketball megastar became the first women's basketball player to ink a deal with Michael Jordan's Jumpman brand of apparel and shoes.

Given Moore's star power, the move comes as little surprise. The former UConn star was the dominant force in women's college basketball for four years, winning two titles, making four Final Four appearances and becoming the first four-time first team All-American in the history of the sport. She also scored more than 3,000 points in her career with the Huskies.
