Moore Helps Team To Title In Pittsburgh

Quadri Moore helped his Sports U team to a second consecutive U17 title at Hoop Group's Pitt JamFest this weekend. Afterwards, he gave us a little recruiting update.

Quadri Moore came up big on the glass when he needed to, but didn't score as much as he would have liked, helping his team in a close win over Virginia's Team Loaded on Saturday night.

The 6-9 junior standout scored an easy bucket late in that game to keep his team ahead, but came up more on the defensive end. He was a little hard on himself, expecting a better shooting performance.

"I just have to shoot the ball well," Moore said, also citing the number-one thing he wants to work on this summer. "I just couldn't finish."

After you hear that, you understand how Moore can help his team to another U-17 title at the Pitt JamFest, in addition to seeing why a number of schools are talking interest in him. He might sound like he's being hard on himself, but it goes in line with his work ethic.

"I feel like I've been playing pretty good, getting after it, in games," Moore added. "I just want to help my team out. I've found within myself I have a lot to bring. There's a lot of good players here. There's good competition."

Cincinnati head coach Mick Cronin was one of those coaches in attendance at Saturday's game. Moore currently lists offers from Wake Forest, Providence and Seton Hall. He also said he's starting to hear from Duke and Florida.

Pittsburgh was a school he heard from early on, but one he hasn't heard from in awhile.

"They told me they were interested a while back, but I haven't talked to them for awhile," Moore added.

As for what he's looking in a school?

"Basically just a good program with academics," Moore said. "Location isn't a real problem for me."
