J.J. Moore Lands in Jersey

NCAA Basketball: Rider at Pittsburgh

It’s been a rough Thursday night for Pittsburgh basketball fans.

First, they learned that DeAndre Kane picked Iowa State over his hometown Panthers. Now, it’s official, J.J. Moore is gone.

Obviously the latter should not be surprising. It’s been known for a while that Jamie Dixon was personally helping Moore find a new home.

The senior small forward will go play for Eddie Jordan at Rutgers.

 

Last year, Moore played about 19 minutes off the bench for Pitt, averaging eight points and three boards per game.

However, in his final 18 games, his minutes were cut in half. He scored in double digits in just one game from that point on.

Although it was unlikely he would have earned a starting spot this coming season for the Panthers, he was expected to be a key reserve.

When you add in Moore’s departure with Tray Woodall graduating and Steven Adams going pro and Trey Zeigler transferring, head coach Jamie Dixon now only has one scholarship player left who has any playing time (Durand Johnson) under his belt. He’ll need to rely heavily on three true freshmen and redshirt rookie in Chris Jones.

Moore will apply for a hardship waiver because of his sick grandfather. If he is not granted the waiver, he will have to sit out a year.
