NBA projection:
Some mock drafts have Moore listed as a low second-round pick. If he can prove to NBA teams that he’s capable of playing the point, that’s a possibility. Moore put together some solid performances post college. At the NABC All-Star game, he helped lead the East All-Stars to the victory with 15 points and nine rebounds. At the Portsmouth Invitational, he tied for 16th in scoring (12.7 ppg), was ninth in field-goal percentage (.536, 15 of 28) and second in 3-point percentage (.556, 5 of 9).

2011-12 Season:
Moore was a first-team All-Atlantic 10 selection after leading Temple and finishing third in the league in scoring. He finished second in the league in minutes played and he was second on his team in 3-pointers made (57) and assists (110). Moore helped lead the Owls to the NCAA Tournament, but his last college game left a bitter taste. He scored just five points, on 2 of 10 shooting, in a 58-44 loss to USF.

Key statistics:
17.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 3.4 apg, 2.5 tpg, 1.1 spg, 36.6 mpg, .426 FG, .383 3PT, .763 FT

Cool statistic:
Moore established career highs in points (32 against Villanova) and assists (eight against Duquesne) this season.

What Insiders Say:
Temple coach Fran Dunphy
"[Moore] is the glue of our group. He’s the guy that everybody looks up to. … He has a scorer’s mentality. When you’re coaching someone like that, you get out of the way and let him make the plays he’s going to make."

What Outsiders Say:
Xavier coach Chris Mack
"He’s hard to defend. He can rise up right in front of his defender, he has great touch, gets to the free throw line, knows how to play. He’s a big-time matchup problem. He has good size for a guard, and we’re small and he takes advantage of that."
