Moores to Love: Paths Bring Brothers Together
Three gentlemen, brothers all, two of them twins, entered the Warsaw Tigers boys’ basketball locker room for the beginning of a free flow discussion on family, basketball, coaching and other matters. However, the first 4 ½ minutes were spent at the white board with magnetic pieces reviewing an offensive set fresh on their minds.
Grace College men’s head coach Scott Moore, his twin brother Marcus Moore (Grace women’s tennis coach, and second leading scorer in Grace’s history), and Warsaw boys’ basketball coach and older brother Matt Moore were the three gentlemen.
In true gentlemanly form, they quickly apologized for the delayed beginning and resumed their energetic discussion of a very impressive offensive play with at least three options I could discern as an on-looking layman. I thought it was apropos for the next hour laying ahead for each of us.
Further to that, Marcus Moore, the storied “scorer” among the three Columbia City High School and Grace College basketball alumni isn’t coaching basketball anymore, but he was certainly an integral part of the evening’s opening discussion of the new offensive wrinkle.
Marcus said, “(Coaching) was the time of my life, but I kind of grew away from the coaching aspect and found out once I started having a family, I enjoyed kind of like the outside perspective of stuff. I missed the grind, but I can taste that through these guys. It is nice just to go to two games, and then come home and not figure out how to guard somebody, or just stay up all hours. I can just text then and tell them what they did wrong all the time, and my feedback has no repercussions.”
At age 40, Matt is 5 ½ years older than the twins. Although there is a distinct age difference their endeavors in playing and coaching college basketball brought them together in multiple locations, sometimes two of the three or all three.
