At Missouri State
Davida Moore played in 18 games as a freshman, averaging 0.8 points and 1.8 rebounds per contest. Her rebounding skills and versatility should lead to an increase in playing time as a sophomore.
Moore came on strong the second half of 2005-06, seeing action in 12 MVC games during her freshman campaign. In the Lady Bears' 76-46 victory over Indiana State (Feb. 17), Davida pulled down four rebounds and blocked a shot, then grabbed three boards a week later against Northern Iowa. Moore sparked the Lady Bears with five rebounds, including three offensive boards, to match her career high in MSU's 70-63 win over Creighton (Feb. 2). Davida played a career-high 11 minutes and grabbed a career-best five rebouds in a 66-45 win over Bradley (Jan. 26). Against Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Moore scored her first collegiate points and hauled in three rebounds in the Lady Bears' 72-45 win over the Golden Lions.
A Minneapolis, Minn. native, Moore helped win a state championship for North Community High School after competing her first three years for De La Salle High. As a senior, the 6-0 forward averaged eight points and 10 rebounds for the Minnesota Class 3A state champion Lady Polars. At De La Salle, Moore averaged seven points and seven rebounds per game as a junior, earning honorable mention all-conference honors. As a sophomore, she averaged 8.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game. Also as a member of the Minnesota SUGAA Storm AAU team, Davida averaged eight points and 10 rebounds per game in 2004.
