Classroom

Trey Moses is following his passion for helping kids by pursuing a degree in child development and will graduate in the spring. He posted a 3.18 GPA in the recent fall semester. To gain experience outside of the classroom, Moses works as a teacher’s assistant at the Child Study Center, a preschool near Ball State’s campus, and as an intern at Head Start, another preschool facility in Muncie.

Character

Moses is a team leader for Ball State, both vocally and by example. He is always eager to teach or encourage other players on the team. That rings true away from the court, as well. When Ball State players speak at local elementary schools or conduct clinics in the community, it is not unusual for Moses to spend extra time talking with the kids. After games, he takes pictures with fans, signs autographs and greets Best Buddies participants who have come to watch him play. Moses has also been public about his personal struggle against depression with the goal of showing others who share that battle that they are not alone. He views his position as a student-athlete as a platform to help others.

Community

Moses has dedicated himself to service dating back to his high school days when he began working with Best Buddies, a program designed to create opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He continues to volunteer with the program with a special passion for developing relationships with those who have Down syndrome. Throughout college, he has organized and implemented his own basketball camps in his hometown of Louisville, Indiana, and even in Canada, with an emphasis on using the game to create a fun and nurturing environment for those with special needs. Moses has also taken a prominent role in Dance Marathon, one of the largest charitable efforts on Ball State’s campus. Dance Marathon brings students together in a mass philanthropic effort to support Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis. Moses serves on the Riley Relations Committee, working with families of sick children and helping coordinate items for the Inspiration Room at Riley.

Competition

Moses recently surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career. He ranks second in school history in blocked shots (125), sixth in field goal percentage (.541) and seventh in rebounds (792). His 238 assists are the most of any true center in program history, and his 10 helpers against Eastern Michigan this year are the most ever by a BSU big man in a single game. Moses was a third-team All-MAC selection as a junior and a MAC All-Defensive Team choice as a sophomore. He owns 21 career double-doubles, including 10 last year as a junior. He averaged 14.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists in MAC play last year and tied the school record with 13 consecutive made baskets.

As a sophomore, he led the MAC in blocks during conference play and was the only player in the league to rank among the top five in rebounds, blocks and field goal percentage. Moses has played 116 career games for the Cardinals, missing just one due to injury. He has played on two MAC West Division championship teams, and last year he helped the Cardinals knock off No. 9 Notre Dame for the program’s first ever true road win over a top-10 team. This year, he has helped the Cardinals to a high mark of No. 49 in the NCAA’s NET rankings.
