JACKSONVILLE -- Former University of North Florida basketball standout Dallas Moore was picked by the Denver Nuggets to play for their NBA Summer League team in Las Vegas on July 7-17.
Moore, the most decorated Osprey player ever, becomes just the second player in UNF program history to participate in the NBA's Summer League, joining former teammate Beau Beech, who played last season for the Brooklyn Nets.
"Dallas is a great example for so many young people demonstrating how endurance and perseverance are the keys to success because nothing exceptional in life is easy to obtain," said UNF head coach Matthew Driscoll. "All the NBA front office people that we communicated with were so impressed with his servant mentality, his confidence in his shot making ability and by his IQ for the game, which translates to every level of competition. Throughout this entire journey, Dallas has clearly understood the critical advice we share with all our guys, which is to control what you can control and then attack with passion your opportunity when it presents itself because this allows you to reap what you sow."
Moore, the two-time ASUN Player of the Year and a three-time All-ASUN selection, completed an historic four-year career with the Ospreys that included back-to-back Atlantic Sun Conference titles and a pair of national postseason tournament appearances. In addition, Moore twice garnered NABC All-District 1st-team honors, AP All-American honorable mention and Lou Henson Award Finalist status. He finished his career ranked as the UNF program leader in scoring (2,437), FGM (904), FGA (1870), Assists (551), Games Played (135) and Games Started (135). Moore also finished second all-time in scoring in the ASUN and ended his career as the all-time leading scorer for the state of Florida Division I programs.
As a senior, Moore led the ASUN in scoring at 23.9 points per game and ended the year ranked 4th nationally in scoring. He also set a new single season scoring record for the ASUN and UNF with 812 points this year. Moore reached double figures in 33 of 34 games played this season including 21 games with 20 or more and 10 with more than 30 points. He scored a career best 39 against Lipscomb during the regular season and added 37 versus the Bisons in the ASUN Tournament semifinals. He also led the league in three-pointers made and was listed among the conference leaders in assists and steals.
"I'm just excited to get out there and play," said Moore. "I am looking forward to this opportunity to showcase my skills and show what I can do because that's really all I can ask for. I thought my workout with Denver went well and I also got great feedback from their staff and during my interview process with their front office. I'm ready to get this next step started."
