Penn State basketball: Former Pa. high school standout Moore transferring from Duke to join Lady Lions

From CDT staff reportsMay 1, 2013 

— The Penn State women’s basketball team has another high-profile student athlete transferring to the Lady Lions this fall.

Former Delone Catholic standout Sierra Moore will transfer from Duke to Penn State. She will sit out the coming season, per NCAA transfer rules, and be eligible in the fall of 2014 with three years of eligibility remaining.

Moore played in 25 games for the Blue Devils, averaging 2.5 points and 1.0 rebounds per game as a freshman.

The 5-foot-10 guard and Hanover native was a standout at Delone Catholic, amassing 2,595 career points, 1,031 rebounds, 432 assists, 360 steals and 150 blocks while earning Associated Pres Class AA and Gatorade state Player of the Year honors as a senior in 2012.

She also was a Parade Magazine and McDonald’s All-American and will be the fourth McDonald’s All-American on the roster this fall, joining Maggie Lucas, Candice Agee and Dara Taylor. Taylor transferred from Maryland two years ago.

“We are really excited to have Sierra join our program,” Lady Lions coach Coquese Washington said. “She brings tremendous defensive ability and is an outstanding athlete. It’s great to have her back in home in Pennsylvania.”
