Sydney Moss poured in a Division III single-game record 63 points as No. 3 Thomas More eased past Waynesburg 106-88 in a Presidents' Athletic Conference semifinal on Friday night.

The previous record holder, Oberlin's Ann Gilbert, scored 61 points in a game vs. Allegheny on Feb. 6, 1991.

Moss was 24-for-41 from the floor, 1-for-4 from 3-point range and made 14 of 16 free throws in 35 minutes. The record breaker came on a pair of free throws with 18 seconds left.

Moss, who transferred to Thomas More from the University of Florida before this season, averages 28.6 points for the unbeaten Saints. She has scored 17 or more points in every game. The daughter of NFL star Randy Moss, Sydney Moss was Miss Basketball for the state of Kentucky in 2012, capping a high school career in which she scored 2,997 career points.

The Division III single-season scoring record is within sight for Moss as well. She has 772 points on the season, 119 short of what Jeannie Demers put in for Buena Vista in 1987.
