OXFORD, Miss. – Brandy Broome (Natchitoches, La.) and Diara Moore (Cedar Hill, Texas) have each signed a National Letter of Intent, Ole Miss head women’s basketball coach Adrian Wiggins announced Wednesday.

Both Broome and Moore will be juniors in 2012-13 and will have two years of eligibility with the Rebels.

Broome, a 5-9 guard, comes to Ole Miss from Pensacola (Fla.) State College where she led the Lady Pirates to back-to-back semifinal appearances in the NJCAA Women’s National Championship as a freshman and sophomore.  As a sophomore, she led her team to a 29-5 record and was named to the WBCA Coaches’ All-America Honorable Mention team in the junior/community college division. 

Broome played in 34 games for Pensacola State College last season and averaged 13.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game.  She shot 44 percent (180-of-406) from the field and 72 percent (58-of-81) from the free throw line.  As a freshman, she played in 29 games and averaged 11.4 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. 

Prior to attending Pensacola State College, Broome attended Natchitoches Central High School in Natchitoches, La. As a senior in 2009-10 she averaged 19.9 points. 4.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game while leading her team to a Class 5A girls state title.

“Brandy provides an immediate defensive presence and will fit nicely in our dribble-drive motion offense,” Wiggins said.  

Moore, a 5-8 point guard from Cedar Hill, Texas, spent the 2011-12 season playing at Independence Community College in Independence, Kan., and spent the 2010-11 season playing at the University of Kansas.

Last season, at Independence Community College, Moore played in 27 games and averaged 11.9 point, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.  She shot 74 percent (96-of-130) from the free throw line.

While at Kansas as a freshman, Moore played in 33 games while making 14 starts as the team advanced to the WNIT.  Moore averaged 3.8 points and 2.2 rebounds per game while shooting 72.7 percent from the free throw line (52-of-72).  She attended Cedar Hill High School in Cedar Hill, Texas where she averaged 17.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game as a senior.

“Diara has experience at the BCS level and will provide an offensive spark to our lineup,” Wiggins said. “We are thrilled to have both of these student-athletes join Ole Miss.”
