Future River Hawk

Moore signs national letter of intent for 
UMass Lowell

(Continued)

Moore said being tapped to guard the best players means she’s won the respect of her coach who expects her to get the job done.

“I take pride in that, because if I don’t get the job done, then I’ve disappointed Mr. Mac, and so I push myself to shut them down and have a good game and everyone will be pleased with me,” she said. “I think defense really gets the team going. Playing defense really makes the game more enjoyable because when you play good defense, there’s steals, there’s traps; it just gets the crowd going and I just really enjoy playing defense.”

The future River Hawk thanked both her coach and teammates for helping to prepare her for the next step in her playing career.

“Well, I couldn’t have gotten this far without my teammates, and they help me and they did a great job getting me to be the player that I am now,” Moore said. “My coach, John McNamara, really has made me the player that I am, and I couldn’t have gotten as far without him. He’s just a great coach and sees potential in everybody, and he tries to focus on what we have.”
