FORMER RAM D’ANDRA MOSS SIGNS PROFESSIONAL CONTRACT IN FINLAND

RICHMOND, Va. – Former Virginia Commonwealth University women's basketball standout D'Andra Moss has extended her playing career after signing with Finnish club Torpan Pojat.  Moss is the latest Ram to turn pro and becomes the fifth VCU player in the last four years to ink a professional contract.

Quanitra Hollingsworth (WNBA), Krystal Vaughn (WNBA), Brittany Pinkney (overseas) and Michele Cosel (overseas) have also signed professional contracts under Rams' Head Coach Beth Cunningham in recent years.

"We're very excited for D'Andra and her opportunity to continue her career overseas," Cunningham said.  "She worked very hard during her four years at VCU and it's rewarding to see her effort pay off."

A 2010 First Team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection, Moss became the 18th player in program history to score 1,000 career points.  In her final season with the Rams, she ranked fourth in the CAA in scoring (17.7 ppg) and free throw percentage (.813), while finishing sixth in three-point field goal percentage (.357).

Moss' consistent approach to the game was on display several times last year.  She tied a VCU single-game record by hitting 10 of 10 from the free throw line at Winthrop before draining the game-winning 3-pointer with 0.4 seconds left to give the Black & Gold a one-point win over Delaware at home.  She scored a career-high 33 points, two shy of tying the VCU single-game record, against Morgan State and poured in 31 points and 12 rebounds at Syracuse in her final game as a Ram.

Moss averaged more than 10 points per game during her four-year VCU career and ranks 10th in program history with 1,216 points.
