Moore scored a season-high 30 points in DePauw's 78-74 win over 18th-ranked Centre. The win snapped Centre's 22-game regular season SCAC winning streak.

During the span, the Tigers also captured their second straight Tampa Shootout title and Moore was named to the all-tournament team.

Moore averaged 20.3 points in the three games along with  5.3 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game. With a near triple-double of 10 points, nine rebounds and nine assists against Drew, he also broke the SCAC career assists record of 499 and now has 508.

In the three wins, Moore shot 40 percent from beyond the arc (8-20) and connected on 18-of-46 shots from the floor (39.1 percent).

The honor is the fourth of Moore's career as he earned the distinction once as a sophomore and twice last year. Moore entered the season as a preseason all-America selection.

The 8-4 Tigers host Birmingham-Southern on Friday, January 9, at 6 p.m.
