Mariya Moore

2013 End of the Trail

Moore, of fairly muscular build, is a high IQ player. The No. 25 player in the 2014 Full Court Fresh 50 plays within the system, runs well for her body type and is very willing to be physical in the paint. She can step outside and score there as well. If there is a problem, it may be that she is sometimes not involved in the offense.  She is getting major Division I offers and may be looking East Coast. - Bob Corwin

2013 West Coast Premier Invitational

Moore was the most explosive point guard in the tournament. She is not afraid to drive and attack in the paint against bigger opponents. She has developed a good outside perimeter game as well. She helped lead her team over the Cal Swish and NY Gauchos to a 3-0 record in pool play. Unfortunately, the Cal Stars lost to West Coast Premier in the final game. - Jerry Howard

2013 California State Tournament

Based on high school production, Moore is one of the best 2014's in the country. She is tall, strong, skilled and rises to the occasion. She can score inside and out, sees the court, and has worked hard to develop her game. The only question is her position in college: Is she quick enough to defend threes, or will she have to be an undersized four?  Either way, she’s going to be a very good player – the only difference will be whether she’s an all-American or merely all-conference. - Clay Kallam

2012 California State Tournament

Moore is a solid six-footer who is probably more comfortable at the four right now but could conceivably move to the three. If she stays at the four, she’ll be a good college player, but if she can make the difficult four-three transition – and there’s reason to believe she can, because she can shoot the three – she is now a matchup nightmare. - Clay Kallam
