WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue senior Courtney Moses earned a spot on the 2014 Allstate Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Good Works Team, as announced by the WBCA and the National Association of Basketball Coaches this morning in Indianapolis. Following former teammate Drey Mingo, Moses' honor marks the second straight year a Boilermaker has earned a spot on the national team, which recognizes college basketball players who have made a commitment to improving their communities and the lives of others.
Moses and the nine other members of the Allstate WBCA Good Works Team will be recognized during the 2014 WBCA Convention and at the 2014 NCAA Women's Final Four® in Nashville, and will also participate in a local community project benefitting the city. She is joined on the Division I team by Kentucky's Kastine Evans, Hartford's Alyssa Englert, NeTanya Jones of McNesse State and Georgia Tech's Shayla Bivins, while Jasmine Brewer of Loyola (New Orleans), Union's Amy Loya, Worcester State's Michel'le St. Pierre, Alexandra Wilkinson of Minnesota State (Mankato) and Alexa Baltes of Illinois Wesleyan make up the Division II, III and NAIA squad.
"It's great to see another Boilermaker earn such a prestigious and well-deserved award," said Purdue head coach Sharon Versyp. "Courtney is one of the most giving and charitable individuals I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, let alone coaching, and I couldn't be more excited for her."
In addition to her numerous works off the court, which include co-founding a pair of community student organizations, missionary trips around the world and a strong influence in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Moses has been very successful on the court as well. She was named to the preseason Naismith Award Trophy Watch List and All-Big Ten squad this season, in addition to third team All-Big Ten honors in 2013. The two-year team captain is the No. 14 scorer in Purdue history, posting more than 1,500 points for her career, is second all-time at Purdue with 218 career three-pointers and is the top free throw shooter to ever wear the Old Gold and Black, cashing in better than 90 percent for her career.
Moses and the Boilermakers return to action on Sunday, hosting Iowa for their annual "Pink Zone" game. The first 2,500 fans in attendance will receive pink Purdue t-shirts, and the Boilermakers' special edition jerseys will be auctioned off with proceeds going to Community Cancer Network.
