CHICAGO, Ill. – Two Duke women’s basketball signees -- Alexis Jones and Sierra Moore -- competing in the 2012 McDonald’s All-America game on Wednesday evening at the United Center in Chicago, Ill., had solid outings for the East and West teams.
Jones, who is out of Irving MacArthur H.S., in Texas, saw action in 21 minutes for the West team, while totaling nine points, three rebounds, three assists and one steal. She hit four field goals, including one three-pointer on the night.
A product of Delone Catholic H.S., in Pennsylvania, Moore played 14 minutes for the East team and scored six points, had three rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal. She hit 3-of-8 field goals.
The East team registered a 79-78 victory, after holding a 40-31 halftime advantage. With the two selections, Duke has notched 19 McDonald’s All-America honorees since they started having a women’s game in 2002.
Jones and Moore will join fellow incoming freshman Katie Heckman as rookies in 2012-13 for Duke. The Blue Devils also return 10 letterwinners and four starters next season as two-time ACC Coach of the Year Joanne P. McCallie will enter her sixth year at Duke.
