UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Maya Moore scored a record 30 points to lead the West to a 117-112 victory over the East on Saturday in the WNBA All-Star Game.
The league's reigning MVP scored eight straight points in the final 2 minutes to turn a one-point deficit into a 113-106 advantage. After a basket by the East cut it to a four-point game, the Minnesota forward hit another deep 3 to seal the victory.
Moore surpassed Shoni Schimmel's 29 points in last year's overtime game. The former UConn great was honored as the game's MVP.
Brittney Griner added 21 points, including a two-handed dunk, for the West.
Alex Bentley scored 23 for the East.
