Hails From: Jefferson City, Missouri
Olympic: Freshman, though she's already considered one of the best female basketball players of all time.
Why She's A Big Deal: Having recieved huge accolades, like WNBA's Rookie of The Year and an ESPY for Best Female College Athlete, it's no surprise Maya was the first pick of the '11 WNBA draft and will be a driving force for Team USA.
Could Be The Next: Remember that photo of Adele at the Grammys with all her trophies? Like that, just in basketball.
Bet You'll Never Guess That: Maya preps for games the same way she preps for school, which probably explains how she wound up with an unbelievable 4.0 GPA.
