GRAMBLING, La. - Prince Moss flashed incredible skills during his time in a Triton uniform.
And that has only continued since making his arrival at Div. I Grambling State.
Moss and the Tigers are currently 9-9 overall and 7-4 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. They will face Jackson State on Monday in the first-ever collegiate doubleheader televised on NBA TV.
"This season has been going well for me individually and as a team," Moss said. "I feel like this year as a senior I have to play a big role. Even though we are coming off a tough loss to Texas Southern, we are in a good position to set ourselves up in a great sport for the conference tournament.
"But we must finish the season strong."
Moss is averaging almost 26 minutes per game, scoring 8.5 points a night on 44 percent shooting from the field. He is also shooting 44 percent from the 3-point line with 65 total rebounds, 24 assists, 10 steals and seven blocks.
The 6-foot-7 Alabama native started 20 games and played in 31 last year for Grambling State, helping them to 17 wins. He finished with 256 points, 101 rebounds, 30 assists, 21 steals and 11 blocks.
Moss also played in 34 games as a sophomore with 235 points, 98 boards, 23 assists, 21 steals and four blocks.
Like those around the country at all levels of play, including Iowa Central, battling through COVID restrictions have been a priority for Moss and the Tigers.
"It's been pretty decent. Our training staff and athletic department have been doing everything for us to stay safe from COVID," he said. "We get tested four days out of the week. They make sure every athlete on campus is okay and available to practice every day by checking our temperatures every morning.
"Having a season this year with my teammates is a blessing with all that is going on right now. I am thankful that I am able to finish my senior season during this pandemic and thankful for all the risks and sacrifices my coaches and teammates have been going through to make it through this season. I pray we finish the year hoisting up that trophy."
In his one season as a Triton, Moss averaged nearly 15 points and over five rebounds per game.
