Moses Decides On Palm Beach State

After a monstrous senior season in which his play propelled Inlet Grove back into the realm of South Florida relevance, Dante Moses will continue his career at nearby Palm Beach State.

Moses averaged 19 points, nine boards, and four steals in catapulting Inlet Grove to a regional playoff berth for the first time in nearly 10 years.

Knifing to the rim and scoring in traffic are the finer points of Moses' trade. During critical sequences, Moses commandeered the offense with tactical and timely surges to the rim.

Possessing the type of dazzling athleticism that made for wild open court finishes and allowed him to levitate above rim protectors, Moses has some burst to him.

He culminated his senior campaign by taking home PBCHoops MVP honors.

Turning a once cringeworthy jumper into a fluid weapon was instrumental in his growth.

"Dante is a versatile player capable of playing and defending multiple positions," Palm Beach State head coach Martin McCann said.

"Dante is a wonderful kid and epitomizes the quality of student-athlete we desire in our program."


Eastern Wyoming will utilize a perimeter oriented four in 7-foot-1 David Appelgren of NTSI Orlando.

A native of Sweden, Appelgren averaged 14 points and 7.5 boards in his first-ever experience in the United States.

A unique challenge for Appelgren will be transforming from a European guard skill set to an interior presence. While he oozes of potential as a multi-layered big, he must get tougher in the trenches.
