Moses Moody was projected to be a Top 10 in NBA Draft, but ended up going to Sacramento at 14.

Moses Moody was projected to be a Top 10 in NBA Draft on Thursday night, but ended up going to Sacramento with the 14th pick.

He is the first one-and-done player in Arkansas’ program history.

Moody just completed a sensational freshman campaign with the Razorbacks. Not only did he compile an impressive list of individual honors, but Moody also led Arkansas to the program’s first NCAA Elite 8 since 1995, a 25-win season — just the program’s 13th 25-win season in 97 years of basketball — and a top 10 final national ranking.

 Moody led the team, ranked third in the SEC and was fourth among NCAA freshmen in scoring (16.8 ppg).

He was 1 of 3 NCAA freshmen to average over 15.0 points and 5.0 rebounds; as 1 of 3 players in the SEC (only freshman) to average at least 16.0 points and 5.5 rebounds; was 1 of 2 players in the SEC (only freshman) in SEC top 20 in: PPG (3rd) • FG% (9th) • 3PT% (17th) • FT% (9th) • RPG (17th); and was 1 of 3 players in the SEC (only frosh) to shoot at least: 42% FG, 35% 3PT and 80% FT.
