UNLV's Mike Moser Will Shine in the 2012-13 College Basketball Season

By Trevor Lowry

As a transfer student from UCLA, Mike Moser went off in his first season with the UNLV Rebels by scoring 14 points per game and grabbing 10.5 rebounds per game last year. Although a season like that is hard to duplicate, expect Moser to shine in the 2012-13 college basketball season.

The Rebels had a pretty good team last year, but expect them to be great in the upcoming season, thanks to a great recruit in Anthony Bennett and a couple of transfers in Khem Birch and Bryce Dejean-Jones. As a result of this, Moser and the Rebels will be on the national spotlight all season long.

The person leading the charge for UNLV will, of course, be Moser.

With some added weight, Moser would have the typical NBA body type, considering that he is 6’8” and 210 pounds.

What makes this kid so special though is his the fact that he rebounds like an absolute monster, he can play some pretty good D and he knows how to put the ball into the hoop.

Moser is very lengthy  which is a plus on both sides of the court. His size alone makes him a nightmare to guard, let alone being a very explosive athlete that definitely knows how to get to the basket. For being a power forward in college, it is also impressive to note that Moser shot 33.1 percent from the three-point line last year.

Although Moser gets most of his points around the basket, he can knock down shots around the perimeter all of the way to outside of the three-point line. Moser will be entering his junior year as the man for UNLV and he will shine all season long.
