LOGAN, Utah – Utah State senior wing Jalen Moore has been named second-team all-district 17 by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), it was announced Wednesday by the NABC. The awards are voted upon by member coaches of the NABC and are spread among 25 districts, representing the various conferences across the country.
Moore is one of five on the second team comprised of all members of the Mountain West. Colorado State’s Emmanuel Omogbo and Gian Clavell were named to the first team, in addition to Boise State’s Chandler Hutchinson, San José State’s Brandon Clarke and Nevada’s Marcus Marshall. Moore was joined on the second team by New Mexico’s Elijah Brown and Tim Williams, San Diego State’s Trey Kell and Nevada’s Cameron Oliver.
Moore led Utah State with 17.0 points, fifth in the MW, and 5.5 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 in 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 and led the Aggies in points 16 times, logging a career-high of 27 points in the season finale against Nevada in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West Championships. Moore also paced Utah State on glass in 11 games this season, recording a season high of 15 rebounds against Nevada on Feb. 1.
Moore wrapped up his career at Utah State among the top 10 in nine career records and among the top 15 in career rebounds. Moore finished fifth in double-digit scoring (91 games), fifth in total minutes (3,815), seventh in blocks (69), field goal attempts (1,210), 3-point field goal attempts (449), consecutive double-digit scoring outings (34) and games played (125), eighth in 3-point field goals made (172), ninth in games started (97), 10th in field goals made (574) and 15th in career rebounds (654).
Located in Kansas City, Mo., the NABC was founded in 1927 by Phog Allen, the legendary basketball coach at the University of Kansas. Allen, a student of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball, organized coaches into this collective group to serve as Guardians of the Game. The NABC currently has nearly 5,000 members consisting primarily of university and college men’s basketball coaches. All members of the NABC are expected to uphold the core values of being a Guardian of the Game by bringing attention to the positive aspects of the sport of basketball and the role coaches play in the academic and athletic lives of today’s student-athletes. The four core values of being a Guardian of the Game are advocacy, leadership, service and education. Additional information about the NABC, its programs and membership, can be found at www.nabc.com.
