Meet your Big Ten Leading Scorer: Purdue’s E’Twaun Moore


By Paul M. Banks

Just like Britney Spears, “Gimme More” has been a phrase often repeated by Purdue Coach Matt Painter. He’s utilized the talents of E’Twaun Moore so effectively; the junior swingman currently leads the conference in scoring at 21.2 points per game, and has scored in double figures the past 17 straight games.

“Getting to the hole, getting to the free throw line,” that’s what Moore said has been the key to his prolific scoring ability.I also asked him what he thinks needs the most improvement in his game. “I need to make sure to keep my midrange up, and maybe make my ball-handling skills tighter,” he responded. Moore has scored in double figures 71 times in his career, and the Boilermakers are 55-16 when he reaches double digits. The 6’4″, 184lb three from East Chicago, IN was awarded the Paradise Jam Tournament MVP earlier this season.

E’Twaun led the Boilers in scoring in each of his first two seasons on campus. Should he finish the season ranked number one on the squad in points, he would be the first Boilermaker to do so since Troy Lewis in ’86-’88.
