Sydney Moss, the daughter of former NFL receiving great Randy Moss, set the NCAA Division III record for single-game scoring with 63 points for Thomas More College on Friday night in a semifinal win in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference tournament.
Moss broke Ann Gilbert’s mark of 61 points when she made two free throws with 18 seconds remaining in the Saints’ 106-88 win over Waynesburg (Pa.) University in Crestview Hills, Ky. Thomas More improved to 27-0 and advanced to Saturday’s championship game against Washington & Jefferson College.
Moss, a 5-foot-11 sophomore guard, is a former Kentucky prep basketball star, and averaged 22.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game in her junior year at Boone County High School. She went to the University of Florida and played as a freshman before transferring to the school in Crestview Hills, a suburb southwest of Cincinnati. She and her father have had very little interaction during her life, according to several reports.
Moss surpassed the 23-year-old mark set by Gilbert for Oberlin College against Allegheny College on Feb. 6, 1991.
Cindy Brown holds the Division I record with 60 points for Long Beach State against San Jose State on Feb. 16, 1987.
Randy Moss was an All-Pro wide receiver with the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots during an NFL career that lasted from 1998 to 2012.
