BUTLER PRESS RELEASE
INDIANAPOLIS – Butler Head Coach Kurt Godlevske has announced that JUCO transfer Andriana Moore will be joining the women's basketball program this fall for the upcoming 2014-15 season. The 6-2 center comes to campus after spending the previous two seasons at Wabash Valley College.
Moore had interest from a few teams coming out of Wabash Valley, but decided on Butler. "I chose to attend Butler because I love Coach G [Godlevske]," Moore said. "He made me feel like I was at home."
A standout player at Wabash Valley College (Mount Carmel, Ill.), Moore was a NJCAA honorable mention All-American as a freshman, and improved her status during her sophomore campaign to earn Third-Team NJCAA All-America Team accolades.
She immediately impacted the program at Wabash Valley playing in 27 of 29 games during her freshman season, making 26 starts. She averaged 11.1 points and 7.8 rebounds per game, but upped her output during her sophomore season where she led the team in points and rebounds scoring 17.7 points per game while shooting 55.5 percent from the field, and pulling down 9.4 rebounds per contest.
"Andriana is an outstanding person with high character that will fit in well with the direction Coach G is taking the program," Wabash Valley Head Coach Zach Loll said. "She's been a winner at every level while playing at Wabash Valley as she helped lead the team to a 44-16 record over the course of two years."
An East Chicago Central graduate, Moore was a four-year starter while playing for head coach Eric Kundich. She guided the team to an 18-7 overall record during her senior season while averaging 20 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.
Moore played an important role for East Chicago Central as the Cardinals won their first sectional title since the 2006 season with her in the starting five. She walked away with 25 points and 19 rebounds in the sectional matchup which pushed her team through to the regional finals during her senior campaign. Moore was recognized by her peers following that season as she picked up First Team All-Area honors.
Moore left East Chicago Central as a member of the 1,000 point club. She eclipsed 20 points on multiple occasions during the 2012 season by notching 25 vs. Gary Westside and Hanover Central. She posted 24 points vs. Roosevelt, 23 points vs. South Bend St. Joseph and 21 points vs. South Ben Clay. The 6-2 center is more than just a scorer as she continually went off for double-doubles throughout her high school career with her outstanding ability to rebound the basketball.
Moore will be able to return to the state of Indiana to play basketball after signing her National Letter of Intent with Butler in May. She's excited about returning to her home state which will give her more opportunities to play in front of her family.
"Another reason on why I decided to play for Butler was to stay close to my family," Moore added. "Not only will I get to play basketball, but I knew I would be able to get a good education at Butler as well. With the help of my family and coaches I just felt like Butler was the best fit for me."
Moore will be majoring in Science and Art while attending Butler.
