BREAKDOWN: Alexis Moore is a 6-foot-2, 180 pound guard who should be able to help the Trojans right away.

Poly was 31-2 and ended the season ranked No. 13 nationally. He scored a team-high 17 points to lead Poly past Byron Wesley's Etiwanda squad, 66-63 in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern California Regional state playoffs. Moore scored in double figures 17 times with a high of 19 points in wins over Bishop O'Dowd and Montebello. He made 35 percent of his three-point attempts (53-for-152). He also averaged 4.1 assists per game with a high of nine in a win over Cabrillo. He also helped lead Poly to tournament championships at the Pacific Shores Tournament, the National Prep Classic and the Torrey Pines Holiday Classic. As a junior, he led Long Beach Poly to a 28-5 record and to the Elite Eight in the California State Championships where they fell to eventual champion Westchester. In the quarterfinals win vs. Los Osos, Moore scored 13 fourth-quarter points, including the game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer in Poly's 61-58 win. He averaged 9.8 points, 4.9 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game
