Upstate Senior Should Be Solid D-1 Player

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a final look at the individual game of Pat Moore, a player who impressed us a couple of summers ago while playing for the Albany City Rocks AAU basketball program ...

Albany City Rocks head coach Jim Hart will certainly miss him. "Him" is Pat Moore, a player we grew fond of a couple of summers ago while he was competing for Hart's terrific AAU basketball program.

Pat does so many things on the court with purpose, reason, and without any panic associated with it. A tremendous student too, Moore has accepted a steep academic challenge, signing with Colgate.

WHAT JIM HART SAYS ABOUT PAT MOORE'S FUTURE:

"He'll be an impact player there. He does so many things well. He can hit a jumper, grab a rebound, make a pass to free up a teammate. He does everything a coach asks for.

"Pat has always been there for us when the game was on the line. He's going to have a wonderful career at Colgate both athletically and academically."

COLLEGE INTEREST:

A 6-foot-6 combo forward from Notre Dame High School in Utica, N.Y., Pat previously had some early interest from Providence, Ivy League, MAAC, and Atlantic Ten schools.

PREVIOUS EVALUATION REGARDING PAT MOORE'S INDIVIDUAL BASKETBALL GAME:

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.
