KNIGHTSTOWN — Erica Moore didn’t watch the movie “Hoosiers” until she was an underclassman at Mt. Vernon High School. Part of a team-bonding day with the girls varsity basketball team three years ago, Moore immediately latched onto two lessons from the film.
To this day, they continue to motivate her.
“It showed me, there is always hard work to come, and you have to take advantage of every opportunity,” the Purdue-bound Moore remarked.
As part of the fabled Hickory Huskers during the Hoosiers Reunion All-Star Classic on Friday night, she accomplished both.
Scoring seven points to go with two rebounds in limited minutes, Moore impressed onlookers, including her showcase coach, despite the Huskers falling to the Terhune Tigers 116-101.
Logansport’s Whitney Jennings, the 2014 Indiana Miss Basketball winner, led the Tigers with 23 points. At one point, Terhune built their largest lead at 17 points in the first half behind Jennings’s strong performance, but Moore and the Huskers cut into the deficit in the second half.
