After beginning his college career at UNC-Wilmington, sophomore guard helps Niagara get a rare road victory in front of family in Baltimore.
There was a lot of noise, and shouts, coming from the visiting locker room in the basement of the Reitz Arena at Loyola University in north Baltimore late Friday night. That was because the men's basketball team at Niagara University, which includes Kevon Moore of Bowie, won just its sixth game of the season (and second on the road) against the host Greyhounds.
