ESPN Player Evaluations

March 09: Lindsay Moore's performance for Kentwood earned her the MVP award and deservedly so. She makes every player on the floor with her better and instantaneously exploits any mistake the defense makes. She has a knack for drawing fouls on her way to the basket, yet controls her body enough to get a solid attempt up after contact. She has 3-point range and an overall moxy on the court that makes her the best player in the state. The Nebraska-signee is also a capable defender. She's better off the ball utilizing her anticipation skills, but she's no slouch on the ball either. She fought through a hamstring injury to lead her team to a championship.

Jan. 08:Lindsey Moore is the point guard for Kentwood High School and this evaluation is based on her performance in a 71-34 home win on January 11. The disparity in competition made the game a less than perfect setting for an evaluation due to the number of turnovers and full court pressure.

The 5-foot-9 Moore is a tremendous passer. She is not a flashy passer but an accurate passer. She delivers the ball so well that the recipient usually has no problems converting on scoring opportunities. She has a knack for putting the ball in the right spot, even on dribble penetration-kick outs she hits the spot-up shooter right in the shooting pocket or target.

Moore has nice ball handling skills. She keeps the ball low and protects it, even on change of direciton moves. She doesn't have a ton of shake in her game. Most people in the area try to compare her to her teammate last year, Courtney Vandersloot, who is now a freshman starting at Gonzaga as a point guard. The two play very different styles at the point. Vandersloot was a scoring point guard who did a lot off the dribble both for herself and teammates where Moore is a distributor. She keeps good spacing, directs traffic and gets the job done in the traditional sense of a point guard.

Defensively this game showed she can get up in a press and make things happen, albeit against outmatched competition. She reads the eyes and shoulders of the ball handler well and has.

Moore is a very nice point guard prospect that has only one urgent area for improvement, which is her three-point consistency. She can knock the shot down occasionally but she needs to be come a solid three point threat for the college game
