Adriana "Adrianinha" Moisés Pinto (born December 6, 1978) is a Brazilian female basketball player. She spent 17 years with the Brazil women's national basketball team, from 1997 to 2016. Among her accomplishments with the national team are participations in four Summer Olympics, winning a bronze at the 2000 edition in Sydney, four World Championship appearances – with her best position being a fourth place at home in 2006 – and titles in American and South American championships. Moisés retired from the national team following the 2014 FIBA World Championship for Women, expressing an interest in becoming a basketball coach.[1] However, coach Antonio Carlos Barbosa invited her in late 2015 to join the team that was preparing for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and Moisés felt interested in representing Brazil at home.[2]
