Deandre Moore

Overcame significant injuries the last two seasons to become a staple at the point position for the Aztecs... Has played in more San Diego State games (58) and started more contests (42) than any other current Aztec player... A true point guard who makes excellent decisions... Had two turnovers or less in 27 of 33 games last season... If forgotten, he has the ability to torch opponents from long range like when he went 4-for-4 from bonus distance against BYU... Excellent off the dribble, making him extremely difficult to guard... His personal late-season run corresponded with the Aztecs? surge to the Mountain West Conf-erence Championship and the NCAA Tournament... Saw a glimpse of his abilities when he was completely healthy when he had 30 assists and just 10 turnovers in 30.7 minutes as the Aztecs entered the NCAA Tournament having won eight of nine games... If he remains healthy, the point position will be a strength for the Aztecs... His three-year career totals (including his freshman campaign at Vanderbilt) have yielded some impressive numbers including 86 games, 51 starts, 2,081 minutes played, 295 assists and 385 points... Has a career assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.03-to-1.

As A Junior (2001-02 Season)
One of six players to see action in all 33 games, he made 19 starts during the season (fifth-highest total on the squad)... Started the first eight games of the season and 12 of the final 14 games... The Aztecs were 13-6 in games in which Moore started... Was second on the team in assists (93), second in three-point field goal percentage (39.0), third in three-point field goals made (39.0 percent), fourth in steals (33) and fifth in scoring (119 points/3.6 ppg)... Led San Diego State in assists 10 times (second on the squad) and has now done so in 27 games in his two-year Aztec career... His 829 minutes were fourth highest on the team, despite overcoming shin splints in the opening half of the season that not only limited his playing time, but also his practice time... When he was completely healthy, he proved to be as good as any point guard in the league... That statement can be verified by his numbers during the last 14 games of the season when he was finally approaching 100 percent: 5.7 ppg, 2.9 apg, 1.4 rpg, 16-of-37 3FGs (43.2 percent) and 12 steals (the Aztecs went 10-4 during that stretch)... Needless to say, he was a major reason for the Aztecs? late season surge that resulted in the Mountain West Conference Championship and a trip to the NCAA Tournament... How important was Moore to the overall success of the Aztecs?... SDSU went 18-6 when he had at least as many assists as turnovers, including five straight victories to close the season, while the Aztecs were 3-6 when he had more turnovers than assists... San Diego State was 10-3 in contests in which he made a three-point field goal (11-9 when he did not connect from long range)... The Aztecs were 8-2 in games when he played more than 30 minutes and posted a 13-10 record when he played 30 minutes or less... Scored in double figures four times in the final 14 games after failing to do so in the first 19 games of the season... Ended the season by committing just three turnovers in the final six games covering 187 minutes (one turnover every 31.2 minutes)... Scored a season-high 13 points against Brigham Young (2-11-02), connecting on all four of his three-point field goal attempts in the contest... Also dished six assists without a turnover in 25 minutes of action in that game against the Cougars... Secured the victory at UNLV (3-9-02) in the Mountain West Conference championship game by connecting on 4-of-4 from the free-throw line in the final 90 seconds of the contest... He had 11 points in that win over the Rebels... Had 10 points and a season-high seven assists with just one turnover in the Aztecs? victory over Houston (1-29-02).

As A Sophomore (2000-01 Season) MWC All-Games Rankings: 1st in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.21), 2nd in assists (4.96), 3rd in steals (1.52). Played in 25 games, starting 24 contests... Team leader in assists (124) and steals (38)... Missed three games due to slightly separated left shoulder (at Loyola Marymount, 1-6-01; vs. Brigham Young, 2-12-01; and at New Mexico, 2-17-01)... Played most of the season through pain stemming from a slight left shoulder separation suffered in the Jan. 4 game against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi... That injury forced him to miss more than half of the team's practices through the remainder of the season... Despite playing with that injury, Moore continued to handle the point-guard duties for the Aztecs and recorded 124 assists, the most by an Aztec player since Raymond King had 150 during the 1995-96 campaign (five seasons ago)... Joined David Abramowitz as the first players in school history to record more than twice as many assists (124) as turnovers (56) (Abramowitz also did it with 53 assists and 24 turnovers in 2000-01)... Tied his season- and career-high assists mark with 11 vs. Wyoming (3-1-01)... Also scored 11 points in that contest for his first career double-double... Originally dished out 11 assists in just 25 minutes of action against Sacramento State (12-2-00)... Those 11-assist performances were the second most by a Mountain West Conference player in 2000-01 and the most by an Aztec since Bradley Jackson dished out 11 vs. High Point (1-2-00)... Scored a season- and career-high 20 points against Oklahoma State... Scored in double-digits nine times... Set career mark in field goals made (6) and three-pointers made (4) vs. Oklahoma State... Did not commit a foul in 35 minutes of play against the Cowboys... Recorded consecutive double-digit scoring games for the first time in his career against New Mexico State (11/21) and Fresno State (11/27)... Hit the game-winning shot with 2.1 seconds remaining to defeat Arizona State (12-16-00)... Was a perfect 4-of-4 from the line against Norfolk State (12-28-00)... Recorded 16 points and six rebounds in 43 minutes of action in the triple-overtime game against UC Santa Barbara (12-6-00)... Did all of that despite being struck by a backboard during pregame warm-ups... 32-for-65 (49.2 percent) from inside the arc, 20-for-73 (27.4 percent) from outside... Engineered the offense to 422 assists, with the Aztecs shooting 44.5 percent from the floor (in 1999-2000 the Aztecs shot 40.9 percent from the field)... Reached the career 100- and 200-assist marks... His 200th assist came against Colorado State (3-3-01).

As A Fr. at Vanderbilt (1998-99 Season)
Saw action in all 29 games for the Commodores...Was in the starting lineup nine times... Averaged 3.3 points and 1.3 rebounds for the 14-15 SEC squad... Had 78 assists to 45 turnovers... Picked up 24 steals... Averaged 2.7 assists per contest... Best scoring outing was 14 points vs. Oregon... Had seven assists against Morehead State... Shot 37.7 percent from the floor and 55.3 percent from the line... Struggled with a groin pull for a portion of his freshman season.

High School
Prepped at Compton High School... Averaged 16 points, eight assists, four rebounds and three steals for a 27-6 squad... Was named all-Moore League, all city and all-state... One of three players who signed Division I letters from his high school team.
