Huskers' Moore invited to attend WNBA draft

Nebraska's Lindsey Moore is one of 12 collegiate women's basketball players invited to attend the WNBA Draft presented at the ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn.

Moore, a 5-9 senior point guard from Covington, Wash., received her official invitation Thursday. The draft will be televised live by ESPN2 at 7 p.m. Monday.

Moore will join Brittney Griner (Baylor), Elena Delle Donne (Delaware), Skylar Diggins (Notre Dame), Alex Bentley (Penn State), Kelsey Bone (Texas A&M), Layshia Clarendon (California), Kelly Faris (Connecticut), Tianna Hawkins (Maryland), Tayler Hill (Ohio State), Sugar Rodgers (Georgetown) and Toni Young (Oklahoma State) at the draft.

Moore was a two-time finalist for the Nancy Lieberman Award, presented to the nation's top point guard. She earned honorable-mention All-America accolades from the Associated Press in 2013, after leading the Huskers to their second NCAA Sweet 16 in her four years in Lincoln. Before Moore's arrival, Nebraska had never advanced to the Sweet 16.

She closed her career as Nebraska's all-time leader in assists (699), games started (132), minutes played (4,360) and victories (94). Moore ended her Nebraska career ranked No. 11 in scoring (1,673), No. 9 in steals (208) and No. 4 in three-pointers made (173).

As a senior, Moore averaged 15.1 points, 5.7 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.8 steals while leading the Huskers in overall field goal percentage (.468) and three-point field goal percentage (.382). She also hit 80.7 percent of her free throws.
