Payton Moore making name as defender
One of 2018’s top defenders on the West Coast is 6-foot-4, 170-pound Los Angeles Windward shooting guard Payton Moore. The rising Cal Supreme sophomore plays with a relentless energy on both sides of the court. He’s all over the place on defense, menacing opponents the entire game. Offensively he’s best slashing to the basket but also is a very good passer and rebounder for the position. “I try to become a better rebounder every game, try to get other players involved and try to impact the game on defense,” Moore said. “I’m working on free throws, shooting, becoming a better leader and a better teammate.” Moore has heard from USC, Boise State and Stanford so far and has an idea of what he’s looking for in a school. “I want a good school that I can feel at home with a good coaching staff.” he said.
