*Good shot blocker

*Defending physical post players
Moore didn’t exactly dominate at the Portsmouth Invitational, but he did finish 11th among all players in the tournament in rebounding (8.0 rpg) and 14th in blocked shots (1.0 bpg). Some mock drafts have Moore going in the second round. Some don’t include him. He’ll have to boost his stock in individual workouts, but he’s got a solid package of skills, and he’s not afraid of hard work. He showed up at UAB as a preferred walk-on, turning down other scholarship offers, and he made himself into a first-team all-conference pick.
Moore was chosen Conference USA’s defensive player of the year and he also made first-team all-conference after leading the league in rebounding and blocked shots and finishing fourth in scoring.
16.1 ppg, 10.5 rpg, 1.2 apg, 2.0 tpg, 2.4 bpg, 35.8 mpg, .483 FG, .217 3PT, .613 FT
In 2012, Moore became only the third player in UAB history to amass at least 1,000 points (1,060) and 700 rebounds (747) in his career. The others were Jerome Mincy (1982-86, 1,473/933) and Lawrence Kinnard (2005-09, 1,413/806).
Reminds me of:
What Insiders Say:
Former UAB coach Mike Davis
“He has the ability to affect a game without scoring. He is one of the top shot-blockers in the country and the shots he doesn't get, he alters.”
UTEP coach Tim Floyd:
“We got too much of Cameron Moore defensively. He changed a lot of shots and did a nice job on the boards. … We didn't get to the line enough tonight and I credit that to [Moore]. He did a good job on the interior, blocking shots and keeping his body away from fouling."
