Ashton Moore Named Among Finalist for Senior CLASS Award


OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – The Citadel’s senior shooting guard Ashton Moore was named on Friday as one of 30 finalists for the 2014-15 Senior CLASS Award, sponsored by Premier Sports Management. Former Citadel standout Mike Groselle (2012-13) was eventually named as a Senior CLASS first team All-American alongside C.J. McCollum (Lehigh), Mike Muscala (Bucknell), Mason Plumlee (Duke) and overall award winner Jordan Hulls of Indiana.

The Citadel is the only Southern Conference school to have two players advance this far over the past four years.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

Moore, a native of Suffolk, Va., is a health, exercise, sport science major with a 3.29 GPA. Since coming to The Citadel in 2011, Moore has been named to the Dean’s List on five occasions, which he achieved by carrying a GPA of 3.2 of better for a semester. On the court, Moore ranks in the top 20 of four Citadel career categories including 3-point field goals made (7th-181), assists (13th-243), points (17th-1,198) and field goals made (20th-402).

The 31st player in program history to eclipse the 1,000-point mark, Moore enters the meeting with VMI on Saturday ranked tops on the team this season in six statistical categories including field goals made (113-1st), field goals attempted (273-1st), 3-point field goals made (53), 3-point field goals attempted (138), points (340) and points per game (17.9).
