March 22, 2009
March 22, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — DePauw senior guard Mike Moore has been named to the 2009 State Farm Coaches' Division III All-America Second Team as selected and voted on by member coaches of the National Association Basketball Coaches Association.
Moore paced the 19-7 Tigers with 20.2 points per game and hit a team-high 86 three-pointers, while averaging 3.3 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
The 2009 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year, Moore finished his career as the SCAC's all-time assists leader with 545 which also ranked second in school history. He also finished as DePauw's sixth all-time leading scorer with 1,505 points which is 12th in SCAC history. He is the Tigers' all-time leader with 254 career three-pointers made.
Moore is the first DePauw player to average at least 20 points per game in a season since Jeff Bibbs scored 23.0 during the 1979-80 season. He also is the first player in DePauw and SCAC history with at least 1,500 points and 500 assists.
Moore is just the sixth player in DePauw men's history to earn the distinction since the NABC first selected a team in 1967. Past DePauw honorees include: Tom McCormick (2nd team, 1969), Dave Hathaway (third team, 1984), Phil Wendel (second team, 1986), David Galle (first team, 1987) and Mike Howland (second team, 2002).
Moore earlier was named an NABC First Team All-South District selection marking the 16th all-district honor for a Tiger dating back to 1950 when the first teams were chosen.Back
