He followed that performance with a then career-high 19 points and nine rebounds in the Runnin' Rebels' 95-70 triumph over Canisius, going 8-of-12 from the field. Moser also dished out a then career-best five assists to go with three steals and two blocked shots against the Griffins. In his final outing of the week, a 92-55 victory over Morgan State, Moser recorded his second career double-double, establishing a new career-high with 23 points and 17 rebounds. He also topped his previous personal-best with six assists and matched a career-high with five steals.
