Senior (2012-13)
One of the nation's top point guards, All-American Lindsey Moore produced the Nebraska career record with 699 assists, including 195 as a senior, while leading the Huskers to their first two NCAA Sweet 16 bids in school history (2010, 2013).

Moore capped her career by earning honorable-mention All-America accolades from the Associated Press. She joined teammate Jordan Hooper on the AP squad, becoming the first Huskers in history to claim All-America honors in the same season.

Moore finished her brilliant four-year campaign with Nebraska career records for victories (94), starts (132) and minutes played (4,360). She also broke her own single-season record for minutes played as a senior with 1,170, surpassing her previous school mark of 1,164 set in 2010-11.

A 2012 and 2013 Nancy Lieberman Award finalist, Moore was the No. 12 overall pick in the first round of the 2013 WNBA Draft by the Minnesota Lynx.

As a senior, Moore averaged 15.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.8 steals per game. She shot team bests of 46.8 percent from the field and 38.2 percent from three-point range. Moore ranked among the top 15 in the Big Ten in seven statistical categories, including No. 1 in assist-to-turnover ratio (2.14-to-1).

In 2013 NCAA Tournament play, the Wade, Naismith and Wooden preseason candidate averaged 14.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and 7.7 assists over three tournament games, while becoming the first Husker in history to start on a pair of Sweet 16 squads. Her seven career NCAA Tournament games (all starts) also were a school record.

Moore was at her best in Nebraska's 74-63 upset of No. 9 Texas A&M in the NCAA Tournament second round at College Station, Texas, March 25. She produced her fifth career double-double with 20 points and a season-high 10 assists while adding six rebounds. It was her ninth 20-point scoring performance of the season and 25th of her career. She produced a pair of 30-point performances among her 25 career 20-point games, and she owns the only triple-double in school history (vs. Florida A&M, Jan. 2, 2011).

She closed her career with team-highs of 11 points and six assists to go along with five rebounds in a loss to No. 5 Duke in the Norfolk Regional semifinals March 31. Although the Huskers came up short in advancing to their first-ever NCAA Elite Eight, Moore tied the Nebraska single-season record with 195 assists (Meggan Yedsena, 1991-92), while eclipsing Yedsena's previous NU career assist record (696, 1991-94). Moore finished with 699 career assists, while ranking 11th in school history with 1,673 points.

Moore also ranks fifth in school history with 173 career three-pointers, while ranking seventh in the NU record books in free throws made (402) and attempted (511). She also finished ninth in Nebraska history with 208 career steals.

Known for her fiery competitive spirit, Moore was a four-year fan favorite of the Husker faithful across Nebraska and especially at the Devaney Center, where she led the Huskers to a school-record 53 home wins in her four years. Big Red fans voted her one of five players on Nebraska's All-Devaney Team as part of NU's final season of competition at the Devaney Center in 2012-13.

Moore scored a season-high 26 points in NU's win over Wisconsin Jan. 2, when she tied a career high with five three-pointers. She added four assists and four steals against UW. She added 26 points and seven boards at Minnesota Jan. 20, sparking Nebraska's 10-game Big Ten winning streak than spanned the entire month of February. Moore also dished out seven assists and led NU with three steals against the Gophers.

Moore produced a 23-point effort against No. 7 Penn State March 3, and added a 22-point, eight-assist performance against Purdue March 9. She also had 22 points and eight assists in NU's overtime loss to No. 14 Purdue Jan. 5. In four career games against the Boilermakers, Moore averaged 24.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists.

She produced 23 points at USC Nov. 23, including 17 points in the final 6:06 to carry the Huskers to victory. She tied career bests against the Women of Troy by going 13-of-15 at the free throw line. Moore added 21 points and five assists at South Dakota State Nov. 18, before producing 20 points and three assists at South Florida Dec. 16.

In fact, in 18 games against 2013 NCAA Tournament teams, Moore averaged 16.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.8 steals - all numbers higher than her overall season averages. Even more impressively, 15 of those 18 games came against teams that advanced to the NCAA second round or farther.

Overall Moore scored double figures in each of the final 16 games of her career and 31 of 34 games as a senior. She also recorded seven or more assists on 13 occasions and five or more rebounds 12 times as a senior from her point guard spot.

Her clutch performances included 14 points, seven rebounds and seven assists while sealing a 76-75 win at Iowa with two free throws with 12 seconds left on Feb. 11.

The 2009 Washington High School Player of the Year and a Parade All-American, Moore helped the 2009-10 Huskers to the best season in school history alongside first-team All-American and 2010 WNBA All-Rookie selection Kelsey Griffin. Moore became the first freshman point guard in NCAA Division I history to start every game for a team that went undefeated in the regular season.

The 2010-11 Huskers went through a rebuilding phase after losing six prominent seniors, including a trio of first-team All-Big 12 selections to graduation. Moore was also left to deal with the loss of NU's lone senior starter, Dominique Kelley, to a season-ending injury at the start of conference play.

As a junior in 2011-12, Moore fueled Nebraska's return to national prominence. The Huskers returned to the NCAA Tournament, while Moore led NU to the second Associated Press final top-25 ranking in school history. Moore led NU to 24 wins and played a major role in the development of honorable-mention All-American and first-team All-Big Ten forward Jordan Hooper.

Moore led the Huskers back to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2012-13, guiding NU to the second-most victories in school history with 25. She also led the Huskers back to the final AP rankings for the third time in four years, finishing at No. 24 in the AP Poll. The Huskers finished second in the regular-season Big Ten standings at 12-4, the second-highest conference win total in school history. 

Junior (2011-12)
Moore earned second-team All-Big Ten honors by averaging 15.7 points, 5.1 assists and 2.2 steals per game as a junior. She produced double figures in 27 of 33 games, including a pair of double-doubles (points-assists).

For the season, Moore hit 42.6 percent of her field goal attempts, including 31.2 percent (48-154) of her three-pointers. Her shooting percentages dipped during the season because she was frequently Nebraska's final option in late-shot clock situations. She also hit a stellar 81.9 percent (145-177) of her free throws. Her free throws made and attempted both ranked among the top-10 single-season marks in Nebraska history.

Her 167 assists on the year ranked eighth in school history and third all-time among NU juniors. Her 72 steals just missed a top-10 season at Nebraska, as did her 48 three-pointers made.

She added a spot on the Big Ten All-Tournament Team by averaging 18.8 points, 4.8 assists and 2.8 steals while leading the the Huskers to the Big Ten title game.

Moore added 23 points against Michigan Feb. 9, including a career-high-matching five three-pointers.

The injury limited her effectiveness during a four-game stretch where she averaged just 8.8 points to close the regular-season Big Ten schedule.

She recovered to earn All-Big Ten Tournament honors. In four tournament games, Moore averaged 18.8 points, 4.8 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 steals.
