Moton named UAA Athlete of the Week
Playing in the team's second, third and fourth games of the season, Moton continued what has been a sizzling start to the campaign for both him and the Judges. After recording 12 points, 12 rebounds and five assists in just 17 minutes played during a 111-59 victory over Curry College two weeks ago, Moton averaged 21 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in three contests last week.
The senior poured in a career-high 32 points during a 96-90 victory at UMass Dartmouth last Tuesday. Moton singlehandedly kept the Judges in the game during the first half, scoring 20 points in the final 7:22 of the frame to turn a 14-point deficit into a 6-point lead. In addition to shooting 10-for-14 from the field and 11-for-14 at the line, Moton finished with five rebounds and a team-high four assists.
Moton led the charge last Thursday against Framingham State, scoring 13 points in on 5-of-7 shooting in the first half alone. Brandeis comfortably defeated the Rams, 104-66, and Moton played just seven minutes after the break.
Moton stuffed the stat sheet against Rhode Island College on Saturday, a last-second, 73-72, loss for the Judges. The transfer from Boston College finished with 16 points and team-highs of 11 rebounds, six assists and four steals.
The Judges are off to a 3-1 start this season under head coach Brian Meehan. Brandeis established a school record in scoring over its first three games, pouring in 111, 96 and 104 points. It is the first time since 1994-95 that the team has had two 100-point games in a season. It is also the most points the Judges have scored in a three-game span since 1992-93, and a school record for points in the first three games of the season. Brandeis 95.8 points per game through four contests is the 11th-best mark in the country.
Moton is a 2010 graduate of St. Petersburg High School. He led the Green Devils to a FHSAA Class 6A championship game as a senior, earning All-Pinellas County first-team and St. Petersburg Times All-Suncoast second-team honors. He played in 63 games over his first two years at Boston College, including three starts before transferring to Brandeis last season.
