About Maya

After winning two NCAA titles at UCONN and captaining the team that set the the NCAA record for most games won in a row (90), Maya was the NCAA Academic All-American of the Year and drafted #1 by the Minnesota Lynx in the 2011 WNBA Draft. As 2011 WNBA Rookie of the Year and an All-Star starter, it was only five months after graduating from college that she helped her team capture the franchise’s first WNBA Championship. That Spring, with Ros Casares Valencia, Spain she added Euroleague Champion and Spanish League Champion to her resume. Then, in the summer of 2012 she captured Olympic gold with Team USA. After a second visit to the WNBA Finals, Maya joined the Shanxi Flame in China where she led the team to its first ever WBCA championship title. In 2013 Maya captured her second WNBA Championship, leading the Lynx in a sweep of the WNBA Finals where she was awarded the Finals MVP.

Armed with fire, polish and integrity, Maya is Generation Next; repping the Jordan Brand and chosen by Michael himself, she is the game’s most amplified crossover star.
