The LA Daily News' Scott Wolf reported Saturday that University of Southern California freshman Alexis Moore will transfer to Penn. The Daily Pennsylvanian has confirmed the report.
Moore is a 6-foot-2, 180-pound guard from Long Beach, Calif. In his freshman campaign, he averaged 24.8 minutes, 4.3 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
Moore was supposed to be a backup point guard behind senior Jio Fontan, but got a significant amount of playing time when Fontan went down with a torn ACL in August.
The Trojans went 6-26 in the 2011-12 season, with a 1-17 record in the Pac-12, last in the conference.
The only team both the Quakers and Trojans played this season was UCLA. Penn fell to the Bruins, 77-73, on Dec. 10. USC lost both its games to UCLA, 66-47 and 55-40.
