(WTNH)–In the wake of the tragic shooting of Philando Castile in Minnesota, former UConn stars Maya Moore and Renee Montgomery, now of the Minnesota Lynx, had more than just basketball on their minds as they got ready for their game against the Connecticut Sun on Thursday.
“It breaks your heart. My first thought is, I have four nephews,” Montgomery said. “My heart goes out because I know that could have been anyone in my family.”
“Heavy-hearted, for sure the last couple of days,” said Moore. “People have to step up in different capacities to lead in that change, and it doesn’t matter if you’re not in a powerful position in your community, you can do something.”
