Can Oregon Ducks' Mike Moser Be the Best Player in the Pac-12?

Mike Moser transferring to the Oregon Ducks was probably the best news that Oregon fans could have heard–that was actually a possibility that is. The Ducks are losing a ton of seniors for the 2013-14 college basketball season, so Moser was a huge grab for this team. However, can Moser be the best player in the Pac-12 Conference?

There is so much talent in the Pac-12, but Moser is definitely part of that talent. It all depends which Moser shows up. If he can return back to his sophomore season form, where he averaged 14 points and 10.5 points per game, then he could definitely be the best player in the conference.

Moser is a great player that can drain the three-ball, which makes him very hard to guard on offense, given his 6’8” stature.

He missed some time last year and when he was good enough to play, he did not see the court as much and he was simply not as effective. Some stats naturally went down with less playing time, but Moser’s shooting also got much worse.

Like I said before, if he can be the Moser of old, teams are going to have a very tough time guarding him. Not to mention, he is a beast on the boards.

This is it for Moser. He will be playing for his third school and he will be playing in his senior year. Moser needs his draft stock to increase, and what better way for that to happen than for him to be the best player in the conference?
