Stephanie Moore
          NEW ORLEANS — Stephanie Moore, a 6-foot-1 forward/center from St. Louis, has signed a women's basketball scholarship with Xavier University of Louisiana.
     Moore, a May graduate of Lafayette High School in suburan Wildwood, Mo., is the Gold Nuggets' first signee for 2009-10. She averaged 4.5 points, three rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 2008-09 for the Lady Lancers, who were 18-8. Moore was the team's No. 3 rebounder and No. 2 shot-blocker.
     "We wanted to sign a big player," Xavier coach Bo Browder said, "We were blessed to sign Stephanie. She has a tremendous wingspan and a nice touch around the basket. Johnna Williams, one of our bigs, told us last month she was quitting basketball, so Stephanie will have an even greater chance to contribute next season."
     Moore, who graduated with a 3.8 grade-point average, previously attended Metro High School in St. Louis. She grew up playing in coach Gary Glasscock's program at the Mathews-Dickey Boys' and Girls' Club.
     Moore will be the Nuggets' first St. Louisan since another 6-1 player, Carol Tillman (1982-86). She will join a Xavier program whose tradition includes:
     •  13 appearances in the NAIA Division I National Championship the past 15 seasons.
     •  A 216-15 record at The Barn the past 17 seasons.
     •  11 Gulf Coast Athletic Conference regular-season championships and 10 GCAC tournament championships.
     •  16 20-game winners the past 17 seasons. Xavier was 23-9 in 2008-09.
     Xavier will return 12 letterwinners, including LaTashia Wise and honorable-mention All-American Brittany Powell, both seniors.
