  • Full Name: E'Twaun Moore
  • Position: Guard

Boston Celtics Round 2: Pick 55

Strengths:

  * Good shooter
  * Good rebounder for his position
  * Can move over and play the point
  * Tough
  * Solid defender

Weaknesses:

  * Good, but not great athlete
  * Needs to continue working on point guard skills
 

NBA projection:
Moore can score, but he will probably have to convince a team he's also capable of moving to the point, which he occasionally did at Purdue.

2010-11 Season:
Moore earned first-team All-Big Ten honors, becoming just the second player in Purdue history to earn some sort of all-conference recognition for straight seasons. Was also a third-team NABC All-America.

Key statistics:
18.0 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.8 tpg, 1.2 spg, 33.9 mpg, .447 FG, .400 3PT, .709 FT

Cool statistic:
Moore ended his career as Purdue's co-record holder, along with JaJuan Johnson, in victories (107), games played (140) and consecutive games played (140). He's the solo record holder in three-point field goals (243), games started (136) and minutes played (4,517).

Reminds me of:
Rodney Stuckey

What Insiders Say:
Purdue coach Matt Painter
"He gets in those rhythms and he gets going and he can score points in bunches. I've always felt he's one of the best guards in the country when he lets things come to him. Whether he takes 10 shots or 20 shots, that's his deal. When he can do that, he really, really helps our team."

Purdue assistant coach Jack Owens:
"An NBA scout told me you can't be that consistent and do the things he's done [in the Big Ten] and not have a chance to play in the NBA."

Chris Dortch is the editor of the Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook.
