TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State University women’s basketball Head Coach Sue Semrau has announced the signing of Trinetta Moore, a 6-2 post player from Cowley County (KS) Community College and former teammate of Seminole Petra Hofmann, to a National Letter of Intent.
Moore attended Rowland High School in Rowland, Calif., but now calls Atlanta, Ga., her home. As a freshman at Cowley County, Moore averaged a double-double at 11.0 points and 10.0 rebounds per game, while shooting 58 percent from the field, and earned all-region and all-league honors in the Jayhawk Conference — one of the top junior college conferences in the nation. She appeared to be on the same pace her sophomore season before suffering a torn ACL to her knee four games into the season.
“We are very pleased to have Trinetta join our program,” Semrau said. “Her versatility in the post position, especially her ability to rebound, will help fill the void left by Levys Torres. Averaging a double-double at any level of collegiate basketball is a tremendous feat. We’ve had very positive experiences with our junior college players and look forward to having Trinetta continue that tradition. The fact that she is a former teammate of Petra’s (Hofmann) will also be an asset to our team chemistry which has proven to be vital to our program.”
Moore intends on majoring in education. Her brother Terrance, also a basketball player, recently completed his eligibility at Cal State Bakersfield.
Moore joins Genesis Choice (6-2, post, Orlando, Fla.), Jamil Burrell (5-10, guard, Bartow, Fla.) and LaQuinta Neely (5-8, point guard, Laurens, SC), who signed with FSU in the fall. Florida State will return seven letterwinners from last year’s squad that went 19-12, advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament and finished the season ranked No. 25. Sophomore Tasheika Morris, who sat out last season after transferring from Tennessee, will also be eligible.
