NEW YORK -- Maya Moore's No. 23 again tops the list of the WNBA's most popular jerseys.
Minnesota's second-year guard was No. 1 on the tally released Thursday by the league. The list is based on sales on wnbastore.com from last October through August. Moore, the reigning Rookie of the Year after being the top pick in the 2011 draft, also had the top selling jersey last year.
Los Angeles' Candace Parker was second for the second straight year. Parker had been No. 1 from Oct. 2008 until she was replaced by Moore atop the list.
Phoenix's Diana Taurasi was third, followed by San Antonio's Becky Hammon and Seattle's Sue Bird.
Defending champion Minnesota was tops in team merchandise sales, followed by the Sparks and the Atlanta Dream.
