Moore to Attend SEC Basketball Leadership Council Meeting

Sophomore forward Kristina Moore has been selected to represent the Florida women’s basketball program this weekend at the SEC Basketball Leadership Council meeting at conference headquarters in Birmingham.

Moore joins men’s basketball’s Dontay Bassett as the two Gators convene with fellow student-athletes from across the SEC to discuss issues related to student-athlete experience, student-athlete wellness, and to provide feedback on proposed rules governing the SEC and NCAA.

The council consists of one male representative and one female representative from each of the SEC’s 14 institutions. The goal of the Leadership Council is for student-athletes to serve as a conduit of communication from their teams to the conference office.

Among the agenda items for the group is dinner and a conversation with Commissioner Greg Sankey, a review of NCAA and SEC legislative items, and the 28 student-athletes will also have an opportunity to engage with men’s and women’s basketball officials on rules of the game, student-athlete/referee interaction and careers in officiating. Keyon Dooling, former Missouri student-athlete, author, motivational speaker and former NBA player, will speak to the group on Saturday on the topic of mental wellness.

The Men’s Basketball Leadership Council and the Women’s Basketball Leadership Council comprise two components of the SEC Student-Athlete Leadership Council. The third component is the Football Leadership Council, which meets each January.

Moore, a sport management major, started 20 games as a freshman averaging 4.9 points per game.
