USBWA Release

LOGAN, Utah – Utah State senior wing Jalen Moore has been named to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association all-District VIII team, comprising just 11 players from Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada and Montana, as released by the USBWA on Tuesday.

Moore is one of six Mountain West athletes on the list, joining New Mexico’s Elijah Brown, Colorado State’s Gian Clavell and Emmanuel Omogbo, Boise State’s Chandler Hutchison, and Nevada’s Marcus Marshall and Cameron Oliver. Nevada head coach Eric Musselman was named the District VIII Coach of the Year and BYU’s Eric Mika was named the District VIII Player of the Year.

Moore has led Utah State with 16.6 points, fifth in the MW, and 5.6 rebounds per game, 11th in the MW, during the season and is just the third Aggie in school history to lead the team in both scoring and rebounding three separate years, joining Greg Grant (1982-84, 1985-86) and Marvin Roberts (1968-71) with that distinction.

Moore had the seventh-longest double-digit scoring streak in school history during the season, scoring in double figures in 34 consecutive games. In all, Moore scored in double figures in all but one game this season and led the Aggies in points 15 times, logging a season-high of 24 points in two different games. Moore also paced Utah State on glass in 11 games this season, recording a season high of 15 points against Nevada on Feb. 1.

Moore will wrap up his career at Utah State among the top 10 in nine career records and could also finish among the top 15 in career rebounds. Moore is currently sixth with 89 career games scoring in double figures, seventh in games played (123), career blocks (69), career field goal attempts (1,179), career 3-point field goal attempts (439) and career minutes (3,739), eighth in career 3-point field goals (167), ninth in points (1,599) and 10th in career starts (95). Moore is currently No. 19 in career rebounds with 643.


 

 

Moore will return to the court for the Aggies when Utah State opens its Mountain West Men’s Basketball Championship run against No. 9 San José State on Wednesday, March 8 at Noon (MT) at the Thomas & Mack Center.
