“One goal is not to play to the level of our competition,” Moore said. “If we play a not so great team we will play to their level but if we play a team that won state we will play to their level. We will look totally like two different teams. We’re trying to play to our capabilities against all teams no matter how good or bad they are.”
Even though Luella went just 12-12 overall and 6-5 in Region 2-AAAAAA, the Lady Lions still made the first round of the playoffs.
On Aug. 25, a day before her birthday, Moore decided she would attend Cincinnati instead of Boston College, Iona, North Florida or Tennessee-Chattanooga, and signed her letter of intent last week.
“All of the other colleges were great schools but when I went to Cincinnati I liked the academics,” Moore said. “When I was hanging out with the team, I just felt a bond with them and I liked their style of play and the coaches were all wonderful.”
Moore, who has a 3.7 grade-point average, plans to major in business.
Luella returns to the court next Wednesday against Stephenson.
“I’m really excited for that because they always have a good team,” Moore said.
