Upstate Prospect Has More D-1 Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan has an update on upstate senior prospect Pat Moore, who is also a solid baseball player too. Moore has more interest after his work this summer ...

Pat Moore, a 6-foot-6 combo forward from Notre Dame High School in Utica, N.Y., has had a solid summer so far, according to his AAU coach, Jim Hart of the Albany City Rocks.

A terrific baseball player too, Moore has opened up many options for him on the next level. "He's had some recent interest from Providence," said Hart. "But let's see where it stands in about two weeks."

This week, Moore will play with the Albany City Rocks AAU program at the Super Showcase at the Wide World of Sports complex in Orlando, Florida.

An excellent student, Pat already has offers from the Ivy League and Patriot League schools. Atlantic Ten and MAAC schools are also following his progress during the July evaluation period.

"He had a great Eastern Invitational camp," Hart state. "He helps us win games in so many ways. He's reliable and can be an asset on both ends of the floor."


A gifted athlete who seems to succeed in the most stressful sport challenges, Moore will have many options as he moves towards a decision regarding his college career.

Moore has the basketball smarts and skill level to help his teams win close contests. Pat has down it a number of ways too from our personal experience of watching him compete mainly on the AAU level.

Pat, in the past, has hit clutch free throws, dived on a floor to get a loose ball, grab rebounds in traffic, or hit a corner jumper.

Moore was a key player in the summer for the Albany City Rocks basketball program for 16 and under age category.
