First off, just want to re-emphasize that we love Shakeel Moore. His grit, hustle and basketball abilities were things that we had hoped would make him even more of a fan favorite than he already was. Today, however, Moore made it official that he will be leaving the Wolfpack for Mississippi State.

Moore led NC State with 1.4 steals per game. But it’s not just ‘steals’ that Moore produced. He led all NC State guards in rebounds, blocks and FG% (after Daniels went down) and averaged 7 ppg in only 18.5 minutes per game.
No doubt, he’ll get more playing time with the Bulldogs and projects to be an immediate starter in Starkville. Last season, Miss State was middle of the SEC with an 18-15 record.
