A high school classmate of mine lives near the high school where the 6-5, 240-pound Tucker rules the roost and comments that the senior is a Charles Barkley-type who absolutely is a monster on the glass. His numbers from his junior season validate the props: 27 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots per game. In short, he sounds tailor-made for Barnes system.
"He brings excellent toughness and competitiveness," Barnes said. "He has the ability to rebound and score with the ball."
A native of Choco, Colombia, the 6-3, 200 Moreno averaged 14 points and six assists as a freshman in helping lead the team to the quarter-finals of the National Junior College Athletic Association Division I tournament.
"Edgar is a guy who can run the offense and play without the ball," Barnes said. "He really gets into people on the defensive end."
