Andriana Moore made her coaches at Wabash Valley promise not to tell her if any Division I offers were coming in until her season ended.

By April 1, she learned how wanted she really was.

The E.C. Central graduate spent most of April visiting her top three colleges and on Monday night picked Butler to finish her education and play basketball.

"At the end of the season, a bunch of coaches came to may games and started talking to me," Moore said. "I just wanted to finish out the season and not focus on what's next.

"I liked (Butler) because I liked the coaches, and I feel like it would be the best fit for me."

Moore will complete her associate's degree in science and art next week and immediately begin summer workouts at Butler. Her previous hope was to become an ultrasound technician, but an aversion to science has made her change her mind.

Twice named to the NJCAA all-American team (honorable mention as a freshman and to the third-team this year) and all-conference selection at Wabash Valley, Moore scored in double figures in every game she played and averaged 18 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.

Moore led E.C. Central to a regional final in her senior season with the Cardinals, and was named to The Times all-area first team.
