Bern’s take: Moser nearly jumped to the NBA after one season in Las Vegas. Now that he’s back expectations are for him to carry this team to heights unseen in the last 20 years. A first-team all-league pick who’s been mentioned as a potential All-American, Moser will be the focal point of opponents’ defensive schemes. His development from a stellar sophomore season and production in the second half of the season will be crucial.
