2023 Moore Lions Boys Basketball Preview – Presented by Scott Smith – Shelter Insurance

MOORE LIONS

BOYS

Coach: Gregg Hardin

22-23 Record: 19-7

The Lions inherited a taste for the state tournament after appearing the 6A state championship in 2022, then finishing in the quarterfinals in 2023. It’s becoming a standard. “This year’s Lions will be ready to compete for another state run,” eighth-year head coach Gregg Hardin said. “The Lions are in a very tough district, which I feel will prepare them for the playoffs.” Harding University commit Darian Grant (6-4, Sr.), who Hardin called a “phenom” will lead the Lions this year. He’s a standout at all five positions, on either end of the floor, any night of the week. “He defends the opponent’s best player, regardless if it’s a point guard or post player, while averaging 19.0 points per game,” Hardin said. Tristan Hankins (6-2, Jr.), a sharpshooter and floor general, is considered one of the state’s top shooting guards. “He can score at will but is very unselfish. Look for him to be more aggressive his junior campaign and lead the Lions in all shooting categories.” Messiah Bunting (6-2, Sr.) will also be integral to the Lions’ success, particularly on the defensive side of the floor. “Messiah is a 6-foot-2 guard that defends well and can score the ball,” Hardin said. “Look for him to be an unsung hero this upcoming season taking charges, rebounding and being a vocal leader on the court.” The Lions open the season with a three-game road stretch starting Tuesday, Nov. 28 at Piedmont. They’ll open at home against Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Dec. 5 before hitting the road again for the Tahlequah Tournament and a regular season trip to Deer Creek on Tuesday, Dec. 12. Their route to the postseason will go through the self-hosted John Nobles Tournament on Jan. 18-20. “Overall, Moore should be in the hunt again barring injuries and the younger Lions maturing in time for the postseason,” Hardin said.
