Former Washington State point guard Reggie Moore has transferred to across the state to Western Washington University, he said Thursday.
"The coaches at Western told me that they really wanted me and I think it will be a good fit for me," Moore told CougFan.com. "The biggest thing for me is that I found a place where I can be happy. I'm about to murder it when I go there. I'm focused."
The senior said he picked WWU, an NCAA Division II school that won the national championship last season, ahead of Miami and Virginia Tech, which are both Division I schools.
"It was down to Western and Miami, but I didn't want to have to sit out most of my senior season because of the transfer rules," he said. "At Miami, I would have had to sit out until next January, so I would have missed 10-12 games. At Western I can play the whole season."
Moore was dismissed for WSU on Sept. 24 for violating team rules. He averaged 10 points and five assists a game last season.
