SBVC Men’s Basketball sophomore forward Aaron Moore (Compton Dominguez) has signed a letter of intent with Portland State University.
Moore was named first team All-Conference along with two other players from the 2011-2012 team. Moore was named first team all-Foothill Conference for the 2010-2011 season as well. SBVC grabbed their third Men’s Basketball Foothill Conference title in four years, also capturing Conference MVP and Conference Coach of the Year honors. Additionally, Moore received a Certificate of Recognition from California State Assemblyman, Mike Morrell. Moore averaged 14.0 points per game and had a 78% free throw percentage his sophomore year. He also averaged 7.3 boards per game and tied the team lead in blocked shots with 74.
SBVC Men’s Basketball ended the 2011-2012 season having won 25 games,
on their way to making their fourth straight playoff appearance. Continuing to cement its reputation as a dominant program in the region, the team was within one victory of heading back to the State Finals for the first time since 2009-2010 season.
According to goviks.com, Head Coach Tyler Geving said of Moore, "The best thing that Aaron brings to our team is a lot of versatility. He can face up and shoot it out to 18 feet, and he can also get a basket down on the block for us. He is a good athlete and a very good rebounder. Losing Chehales (Tapscott to graduation), that is something we need to address is rebounding. We have to make sure we are getting the job done on the boards and Aaron can do that.
Geving continued saying "We are excited to have Aaron. He is a guy that is going to come in and have a big impact on our team next year."
