In his second season, Moore brings an impressive collegiate and professional playing career to the Big Green, having served as a co-captain for the University of Connecticut for three seasons, including 1999 when the Huskies won their first national championship. In his four seasons at UConn, Moore helped his squad win the Big East title three times. He was the runner-up for Mr. Georgia Basketball as a prep in 1995, and went on to be the National Defensive Player of the Year as selected by Basketball News in 1999. In the championship run, Moore was named to the All-West Region Team as well as the All-NCAA Tournament Team. For his career, he averaged 6.9 points and 3.8 assists while playing close to 29 minutes per game, plus was selected as one of the 10 guards for the 25-member UConn Basketball All-Century Team.

After graduating with a degree in social and political history in 1999, Moore played professionally in numerous places, including tryouts with the Detroit Pistons (twice) and the New Orleans Hornets. First came a season with the Connecticut Pride of the CBA before a year in the German Bonus League with DJK Wurzburg where he averaged 19.4 points and 3.8 assists over 26 games. Moore returned stateside playing for the Roanoke Dazzle in the NBDL and the Sioux Falls Sky Force in the CBA. In 2004 he went back overseas, playing in the Austrian League, the Ukraine and then Sweden with the Sodertalje Kings in 2006. From March through August of 2008, Moore served as an AAU coach with the Charlotte Royals before returning to Austria with his former team, WBC Wels, which he helped win the league championship in 2009. During his stays in Europe, he spent countless hours coaching basketball to the local youths as well.
