Reggie Moore vs Isaiah Thomas
Written by Magic   
Friday, 26 February 2010 11:39

In case there is still any doubt about how good Reggie Moore is, I want you to think back to last season, and the experience of Huskies sophomore Isaiah Thomas.


If you live in the greater Seattle metro area, you no doubt were bombarded with pro-Husky propaganda about the great Isaiah Thomas and his glowing purple future. This hype carried through the 2008-2009 season and resulted in Thomas winning the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year and Second Team All Pac-10 External linkhonors. In the off-season, it only got louder and more visible-- as the Seattle media propelled him to national watch lists External link and even the cover of Sports Illustrated External link.


All that before this year even began.  This season, Thomas has done nothing but improve, posting improved stats nearly every major category:

  • PPG
  • Offensive Rating
  • Effective FG Pct
  • True Shooting PCT
  • FT Pct
  • FT Rate
  • 3pt Pct
  • Rebounds per Game
  • Assists per Game
  • Blocks per Game.


And tonight at Friel Court, he won't even be the best pure guard on the floor.  Find out why after the jump:



Because Reggie Moore is having a better season in his Freshman year than Thomas is having in his improved Sophomore year.  Moore is outpacing Thomas External link in:

  • Offensive Rating
  • Effective FG Pct
  • True Shooting Pct
  • FT Pct
  • FT Rate
  • FG Pct
  • 3pt Pct
  • Assists per Game
  • Assist Pct
  • Steals per Game
  • Steals Pct.
  • Assists/Turnover Ratio


Oh, and he plays more minutes for his team, too.



Maybe I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, but it's worth repeating, especially on this day when the two teams will face off.  Especially when Thomas is talking smack External link, saying that the last UW faced the Cougs, "we shut 'em up."  Especially when Thomas' Huskies, who started the pre-season ranked #9 in the nation in some polls, find themselves scratching and clawing to make the NCAA Tournament at all.


So it's nothing new-- those who've followed WSU 2009-2010 team know it, Pac-10 Coaches know it External link, and later today, Isaiah Thomas will know it.

I hope Moore is on today from the start. Oregon won again today so we need this W to continue to try and push out of that 8-9 game in the Pac-10 tourney. Plus, I'd really love to watch Thomas fail in Pullman. Guy is a massive dbag. The only thing that makes him less conspicuous on that team is the fact that they have the biggest clown in the Pac-10 with Overton.

Moore is also smarter then Thomas. Isaiah Thomas couldn't pass the WASL so he moved to Connecticutt for his final year. How embarassing!
Nice try Cougs

By the way Viking, before you start talking about smart, you may want to learn the difference "then" and "than". "Moore is smarter THAN Thomas." Is that what they teach at Coug U?
What good does that comment do Woofda?

1. It's a common mistake. 2. Why pick a fight?

It was simply a typo and i saw it right after i posted the comment. I need an edit button. Besides, Woofda is just mad because it is a true fact that he couldn't pass any section, not just math. It is funny because i have seen special ed kids pass. (My mom was a teacher.)
