LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alex Morgan won female athlete of the year and shared the best team award with her U.S. women's national soccer teammates at The ESPYS, hours after the group was honored with a ticker-tape parade in New York City to celebrate their Women's World Cup championship.

Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks won male athlete of the year Wednesday night at the show honoring the past year's top athletes and moments in sports.

Comedian Tracy Morgan presided over the show at Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Zion Williamson, the No. 1 pick in last month's NBA draft, earned best college athlete honors for his one-and-done season at Duke.

The best moment award was shared by a trio of recent retirees: Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, NFL player Rob Gronkowski and NBA player Dwyane Wade.
