In our second installment of the Introducing series we present Astraea Moore (2016) Guard/ Forward from Southaven High (MS). This will be Astraea’s third summer with the Lady Mambas after coming off a superb junior season where she made the MS North/South All Star game and was placed on the All-Tournament team for the More than Basketball Classic. Astraea is a “walking mismatch.” She is almost unguardable with her frame and low post moves she is a nightmare for guards but her ball handling and jump shot gives forwards tons of problems on the offensive end. Ash displays a high basketball IQ that is rarely seen in young players and literally plays and defends all five positions. Its is not uncommon to look at the box score after the game and see her leading the team in points, rebounds, assists and blocks all in the same game. She is “Ms. Versatile” and we cant wait to see her on the collegiate level.
