Varnado’s Tarralyn Moses signed a letter of intent to attend Delgado Community College in New Orleans and play basketball for the Lady Dolphins.

“I’m very excited that I get to pursue the rest of my basketball career in college,” Moses said. “I’m looking forward to playing with them and going on after my two years at Delgado to a university.”

Moses put a solid career together at Varnado. She averaged 29.5 points, seven assists and 6.3 steals per game and she made 78.6 percent of her free throws.

For her career, Moses, who started five years at Varnado, tallied about 2,320 points. Every year she played, Moses was either first-or-second team all-district. This year, Moses was the District 8-1A MVP and she was Class 1A All-State Honorable Mention as voted on by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.

This season, Varnado reached the first round of the playoffs.

Lubertha Peters, who coached Moses at Varnado, said she’s very excited for Moses.

“She can shoot, she can penetrate and she can play defense,” Peters said.

Peters said Moses is well rounded and knows the game.

“Offensively, she knows the game and she catches on fast, so she can make transitions very well,” Peters said.

One of the main reasons Moses chose Delgado was because it’s close to home and that allows her family to come see her play.

She said she’s very excited about next season.

“I don’t want to stop playing basketball. I want to continue to play,” Moses said.

Moses said her strength in basketball is getting to the basket.

Delgado women’s coach Edward Fields praised Moses.

“She shoots it pretty good. I think she can play both the one guard and two guard,” Fields said. “She’s a strong competitor. She handles the ball very nicely.”

Fields also said Moses does a good job of putting the ball on the floor and gets to the basket. He noted that she also finishes well.
