Moore was named the boys player of year and first team all-state this spring by the N.C. Basketball Coaches Association.
He was also among four players receiving the most votes for inclusion on the Associated Press all-state boys team, alongside UNC signee Coby White. Moore was the only sophomore named to that list in 2017.
