Salesian alum Mariya Moore has continued to shine in college, earning all-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) second team and freshman team honors at the University of Louisville.
ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced the selections earlier this month.
Moore was one of just three conference players to be selected to both teams. She leads No. 10 Louisville in scoring (13.9), 3-pointers (52), and free throws (108), and is second in assists (108), according to her school.
She has scored in double digits 23 times this season and recently became the sixth player in school history to score at least 400 points in their freshman campaign, her school added.
Additionally, Moore ranks in the top 15 in the ACC in assists per game (No. 6, 3.7; highest among all freshmen), assist-turnover ratio (No. 7, 1.7; highest among all freshmen), free throw percentage (No. 10, 78.8), and 3-point field goals per game (1.8).
Also, Moore steps up against the top teams, averaging 14.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.4 assists against eight ranked opponents and collecting 10 steals.
“She poured in 28 points against North Carolina, the most by a freshman in a game since Shoni Schimmel totaled 33 against Xavier on March 22, 2011, to help UofL advance to the Sweet 16,” the university boasted.
Louisville won its first game of the ACC Tournament against North Carolina on March 6 in an OT thriller, but then lost its second round game the following day to Florida State.
