Chattanooga fans have been thrilled to witness a 12 20-win seasons by the Lady Mocs since Moore’s arrival and are the only women’s team in Southern Conference history to post 10 consecutive years with 20plus wins. Moore has been named the Southern Conference Coach of the Year five times since his arrival at UTC. With a winning percentage of .762, he is ranked in the Top 10 by the NCAA for winning percentage among active coaches as well as among all-time coaches with 10 or more years of coaching experience at the Division I level. Over the last 11 years, the Lady Mocs have had seven SoCon Players of the Year, six SoCon Tournament MVP’s, 25 SoCon coaches AllConference selections and and 28 All-Tournament honorees. Two-time SoCon Player of the Year Alex Anderson was drafted by the WNBA. She was selected 39th overall by the San Antonio Silver Stars and currently plays professional overseas. Teammate Laura Hall, an All-Conference athlete, was invited by the Connecticut Sun to participate in camp tryouts. Moore’s 50- and 100-win milestones at Chattanooga have happened faster than any other Lady Mocs coach. He reached No. 100 in just 140 games when UTC topped College of Charleston 85-75 on Feb. 3, 2003. He won No. 50 in his 75th game, a 78-60 victory over Davidson on Jan. 20, 2000. In the 2010-11 season Moore became the ninth fastest coach in NCAA history to reach the 500-win plateau. Moore’s accomplishments started by orchestrating the best turnaround in NCAA Division I women’s basketball. Chattanooga’s women’s basketball team improved its record by 16 games in 1999-2000 over the 1998-99 season. Moore was a unanimous choice as the 1999-2000 Southern Conference Coach of the Year after leading UTC to a 26-5 overall mark and 17-1 record in league play while guiding UTC to the school’s first conference title since 1992. The 17 wins were the most by any team in school and SoCon history. The Lady Mocs hold 11 Southern Conference records including the the top seven in number of wins,
