Hard to see how Moriah is not top 10, or even top 5. She had more assists and steals than Sue or DT, and fewer career turnovers than both. She actually had 104 fewer turnovers than DT. Might begin to explain why she has four championship rings. And she was a better defensive player than both.

Moriah became an excellent player but not sure what you're watching. Absurd to compare her to Sue or DR using those stats.
DT is arguably the best woman's player to ever play. Sue is clearly the best point guard evidenced by is it four Olympic gold medals and even at their current ages likely to not only be on the next Olympic team but play meaningful roles. They also both won WNBA championships.
This in no way denigrates Moriahs role here in the four championships but she has a long ways to go to reach those two.

My comparisons only concerned performance at UConn. WNBA and Olympic accomplishments are not relevant. It is not absurd to use those stats; they are extremely relevant to point guard performance.

I loved Sveta, but anyone (are listening Megan Culmo) that would put Abrosimova over Mo Jeff is silly.. Moriah could dominate games on the defensive end and was the floor general of a great offensive attack. Not to mention 4 NC won. She was also the best at her position in the country. Sveta was never that.

I think Mojeff gets short changed because of the presence of Stewie and Tuck on those teams, but Moriah was the premier point guard in the country her junior and senior years. Her defensive game is also getting short changed, she is one of the best if not the best on ball defender the women's game has EVER seen. Her defense skills had to be accounted for by opposing teams, much like Gabby Williams today. Teams had to change how they ran their offense because of the presence of Moriah!

Kerry Bascom over Swin and Shea is ridiculous. Sure she was good and had a terrific 10 foot jump shot. Was she an All American in a week field? Was she a great player in a weak league and was she idolized by women’s analysts. No. She was a very good player on a weak team.
