Why would the UConn fans suddenly chant that the best player on their team "sucks"?

their=UConn (or rather the UConn team)

Does "suck", in this case, have a meaning other than being bad?

Do the fans do the chant in every game?
Or they do it in a certain situation only?
When the player messed up something?
Or when he played particularly well?

Is the chant actually directed at the player?
Or at a player of the opposite team bearing the same name?

Is a pun involved?
Is the player's name relevant?

Is it someone on the women's basketball team? Does the specific sport matter?

Is it someone on the women's basketball team? Yes - Maya Moore Does the specific sport matter? It could also work for men's basketball if the proper circumstances arose, however they did not and likely won't for a while. Also, if those circumstances had arisen this year, it still wouldn't have occurred in exactly the same way (i.e. one portion of the puzzle statement would be different).

Is the chant inspired by something that she did on the court of play during a game? Or something done not on the court? Something done during a game, just not while she was on the court? Something done that doesn't involve basketball but is/was known by people who attend basketball games?

Do the fans intend to tell her that she sucks?
Or are they just teasing her?
Is it some irony because she actually does so well?

Is it a reference to something that happened earlier (like, maybe months or years before, not during the game)?

When doing the chant, do the UConn fans put themselves into the opponent's place?

Is her position relevant?
If so, does she play *looks up basketball positions*
...center?
...small forward?
...power forward?
...point guard?
...shooting guard?

Do the fans do the chant
...before the game starts?
...shortly after the beginning?
...near the end?
...after the end of the game?
...if the team wins?
...if the team loses?
...after she scored two points?
...after she scored three points?
...after she takes the ball from an opponent?
...after she makes a particularly impressive move?
...when she's involved in a foul?

Do the fans intend to tell her that she sucks? Noish/yope
Or are they just teasing her? No
Is it some irony because she actually does so well? No, or at least not intentionally

Is it a reference to something that happened earlier (like, maybe months or years before, not during the game)? No

When doing the chant, do the UConn fans put themselves into the opponent's place?

Is her position relevant? Yes
If so, does she play *looks up basketball positions*
...center?
...small forward?
...power forward?
...point guard?
...shooting guard? Either forward would be possible, and I'm not sure women's basketball distinguishes much between small forward and power forward. However, at the same time, it could not happen to both forwards, at least not at the same game.

Do the fans do the chant
...before the game starts? This, no to rest. Also, possible FA.
...shortly after the beginning?
...near the end?
...after the end of the game?
...if the team wins?
...if the team loses?
...after she scored two points?
...after she scored three points?

...when she's involved in a foul?

I still sense an overlying FA here.

Is the chant always done inside an arena, or in whichever building the UConn team is playing a game? Is it ever done outdoors? At pep rallies? Outside of a building in which a basketball game will be played? Is it somehow done online/over the internet? On blogs?

Outside of a building in which a basketball game will be played? Is it somehow done online/over the internet? On blogs? It is only done at UConn games, typically home games (though not necessarily - it was done at the Final Four this year as well), which would be at either Gampel or XL Center. However, I feel that this answer could lead to an FA, and you probably already were making that FA when you asked it, so you might want to look into it further.

Slight blooper: this chant does occur at several other sports, however it is unlikely this scenario could have occurred in any of them.

Allright...so is it correct to assume that:
fans chant this from the seats at home games?
fans chant this prior to the start of a game?
not all fans chant this?
all fans chant this?
this is chanted while Maya is standing on the basketball court? During the opening introductions as players run onto the court?
Is the chant a response to something that is said about Moore?

all fans chant this? generally just the students
this is chanted while Maya is standing on the basketball court? See below During the opening introductions as players run onto the court? I'm not sure what you mean by this. It's chanted during player introductions, but they're usually already physically on the court before they are introduced. However, the only relevant part is that it is during player introductions. Where the players are is irr that is said about Moore? No, with a slight -ish. Explore this.

I was picturing the kind of introduction where the 5 starting players emerge from a tunnel as they are introduced, and this may not be done at all games.

So is her name announced over the sound system when she is introduced? Is that when the chant is done? Does she perform some kind of action that inspires the chant?

Is she one of the two players who are at center court for the opening jump ball? Is it relevant where she is standing when the opening tip takes place?
Was the chant originated by only one person? A group of people? Was it inspired by an action? By something that someone said? Based on an observation about the player? Based on the fans' opinion about this player? About the team?

I wish I could clear up this FA. Am I wrong in assuming that UConn fans are the ones who say the word? Only some of them say it? That it's always said at the same time?

Is any element of the game of basketball related to the motive for the fans saying this? If so, is it...
shooting? dribbling? passing? dunking? fouling? free throws?

I realized that one of my answers to a question of the top might be leading to this FA. It's not exactly a blooper, but a poor way to answer it. Reposting from Potato's questions above:

Do the fans do the chant in every game? Yope would be a better answer than yesish

Is the FA lurking because we're assuming that this chant is done repeatedly?
If I were at a UConn game at the point where one or more people also at the game said "Sucks," would I only hear the word once?
Is it said in a mocking way to complete a sentence (like if a player's name is announced and immediately after the last name is spoken the response is "sucks")?
Is the word yelled out? Is it whispered? Is it spoken by portions of people at different times? Is it said aloud and pronounced normally? Or is it spoken aloud and drawn out, like "Suuuuuuuuuuuucks"?

Does her name rhyme with the word "Sucks"? If so, her first name? last name? No, her name is "Maya Moore". We have already accomplished this. But her name is irrelevant. If her name was Bozo McFudge, this would still work just as well. But this question is most likely still based on the same FA that you have been making this whole puzzle

Is the FA related to the motive, or inspiration for the chant?

Your answer above indicated that the word is yelled out as a response to a name. Is it in response to Maya Moore's name? Is there another player on the UConn team that is relevant at all to the chant?

Maybe this is related to the FA - at a typical game, is the word yelled out only once? twice? three times? four times? Is there some factor which determines how many times the word is spoken?

Is the FA related to the motive, or inspiration for the chant? Not really, but OTRT

Your answer above indicated that the word is yelled out as a response to a name. Indeed Is it in response to Maya Moore's name? Noish, good question, explore this and you can clear up the FA Is there another player on the UConn team that is relevant at all to the chant? Not the UConn team, but ...

Maybe this is related to the FA - at a typical game, is the word yelled out only once? twice? three times? four times? Six times at a typical game. And emphasis on "a typical game" Is there some factor which determines how many times the word is spoken? Not really, for the most part. At a typical game, it will be said six times. However, you should explore this to clear up the FA.

And for the record, we do have a player whose name rhymes with "Suck". Heather Buck. However, as she is not a forward (and we have already accomplished that this is relevant) this would not work with her.

So does it matter which team UConn is playing against as to when the word is spoken?

If the word is spoken six times at a game, is it done all before the game starts? Is it ever done after the game is over? Is it done only when a certain person is talking? When a certain announcement is made to the fans?

If the word is spoken six times at a game, is it done all before the game starts? Yes Is it ever done after the game is over? No Is it done only when a certain person is talking? See below... When a certain announcement is made to the fans? Yes, DOYD of "announcement". Which answers the above because it would be when the PA announcer is speaking. However, I suppose if we had a substitute PA announcer it would still happen.

Is the word yelled out six times in a row?
Or on six different occassions?
Does it depend on who else plays for UConn?
Does it depend on which is the other team?
Does it depend on where the game takes place?

Or on six different occassions? Somewhere in between these two, though you still haven't cleared up the FA
Does it depend on who else plays for UConn? No, same FA
Does it depend on which is the other team? No
Does it depend on where the game takes place? Well it would be home games only. As for whether it's Gampel or XL, no, it doesn't matter.
On when it takes place? <b> No, although the chant would be less prominent over winter break when there are fewer students there. Still need to clear up FA </b.

Hmm, looks like we're stuck. Could you maybe give us a hint about what this mysterious FA might be? Ok... This is a big hint since I can't figure out a good small one... When they say it, it's usually referring to the opposing players and the coach. But not at a certain game (the one in this problem). Now find out why. Sorry, I probably gave away too much, but you wanted a hint, and I couldn't think of a smaller one that wouldn't be too small.

sry greg kitteh...I iz nawt gud at this...but I try.

OK, so is it a *tradition* to shout "SUCKS!!!" at these games? But usually it's at the opposing players and the coach? And this time it was shouted at one of your best players instead? Was she from the other school originally? Was she wearing something that (seemed like) she supported the opposing team? Was there a set time to shout "SUCKS!!!" only it happened that she came in at that time instead of the opposing team, so it looked like the "SUCKS!!" was directed at her personally?

***************SPOILER*************

Normally at UConn basketball games, the players for the visiting team are announced first, followed by the coach. After each one, the student section yells "SUCKS!" for instance "At Center, Brittney Griner ... SUCKS!". However, at the First Round of the NCAA women's tournament against Hartford, at Gampel Pavilion, the PA announcer followed NCAA tournament protocol and announced the visiting team's forward, followed by OUR Forward (Maya Moore) then their other forward, our other forward, and so on. However, the student section wasn't really paying attention as it went something like
PA: Starting at Forward for UConn, number 23 Maya Moore
Student Section: SUCKS! (Thinking it was Hartford's other forward)

I was planning to make a new puzzle called "Not insulting the Not
