Coach Moore, a former recipient of both the USCAA DII Coach of the Year and PSUAC Coach of the Year, is entering his eleventh year with the Beaver women's basketball program and his eighth year as the head coach.
Moore returns to the program after a two year stint at USCAA Division 1/NAIA, Carlow University. Taking over at Carlow in 2017, Coach Moore amassed an overall record of 19-38 and guided his team to the USCAA National Tournament Quarterfinals last season. He also produced two USCAA All-Americans in the 18-19 season with Carlow.
Prior to his departure, in the 2016-17 season, the Lady Lions returned to the post season, looking to continue their championship streak from the 15-16 season but fell in the PSUAC semi-final against Penn State Hazleton ending their year with a 17-9 record overall and 12-2 in the PSUAC.
In the 2015-16 season, Coach Moore and the Lady Lions captured their 4th consecutive PSUAC Championship with a conference record of 13-1 (19-10 overall). The victory gave them an automatic bid back to the USCAA Women's Basketball Division II tournament where they attempted to defend their national championship, but fell to St. Joe's - Vermont in the semi-final round.
Under Moore, the Lady Lions won 7 of 10 conference championships and in the 2014-15 season they won their 1st National Tournament in the program's history. That also marked the first time any PSUAC school has won a championship in the USCAA.
During his first seven seasons as head coach with Beaver he held a record of 112-65 overall and 80-15 in the PSUAC. In his collegiate coaching career, he now holds an overall record of 131-103 (Beaver: 7 seasons, Carlow: 2 seasons)
