GEORGETOWN, Ky. -- Vic Moses becomes the 46th Georgetown (Ky.) Tiger, and fourth in the past two seasons, to sign a professional basketball contract. The Lexington native will be heading to England, signing with Cheshire Phoenix of the British Basketball League.
“Cheshire has gotten a steal with Victor Moses,” said GC coach Chris Briggs. “There is no doubt in my mind he will be one of, if not the best, player in that league.
“Vic will make the most of this opportunity and move up the ladder in his professional career. I am very proud of him and excited to follow his progress in pro basketball.”
As a senior, Moses led the Tigers to a national championship and earned NAIA Player of the Year honors. He is a four-time All-American honoree and scored 2,106 points in that span. He averaged 15.6 points and 7.9 rebounds for his career, highlighted by 17.0 and 9.8 respectively in 2012-13.
The forward averaged a double-double as Georgetown won five games in Kansas City to win the toughest national tournaments.
Moses was ranked first nationally in field goal percentage and total total rebounds and third in total rebounds per game and offensive rebounds per game. For his career, Moses hit 65.8 percent of his shots.
“Vic has been a huge piece of Georgetown’s success over the past five years,” Briggs said. “He is one of the most talented players to ever put on the Tiger uniform; even better than that he is such a wonderful young man.
“I could not be more proud of the success he led us to, especially after dealing with the injury. It was a dream ending to his career and he absolutely deserved every bit of it.”
The Tigers tallied 113 wins, two conference titles, four national tournament appearances, one semifinalist finish and a national title.
He led the team in points and rebounds all four-years and also led in blocks his senior season. He battled back from a torn Achilles during the spring of his junior season to return for a red-shirt senior year to still be the most dominate player on the team and one of the most dominate in the nation.
