Cochran and Moore Write the Samford Record Book

Aimee Cochran didn't rewrite the record book for Samford women's basketball. The constantly-in-motion senior guard penned a first edition.

Until Cochran and her seven senior teammates arrived four years ago, Samford women's basketball didn't exist. During the intervening four seasons, these eight worked hard to build the foundation for a solid program.

"I am very proud of our seniors, and they should be proud of what they have started," said Coach Janet Cone after the season. She spoke of Cochran, Cortney Moore, Wendi Wilcox, Jennifer Luttrell, Kelli Moore, Danielle Pinkston, Deon Cooper and Clarissa Clark, who suffered a season-ending injury in November.

Looking at what it took to get the program started, Cochran's contributions stand out. The 5-6 native of Starkville, Miss., played more minutes in more games and scored more points than anyone else associated with Samford women's basketball.

Cochran leaves with 1,247 points in 110 games, an average of 11.3 a game. She played 3,785 minutes, an average of more than 34 a game. And she holds career records for field goals (460), three-point goals (112), free throws (215), assists (463) and steals (289).

If they kept numbers on diving for loose basketballs, Cochran probably would hold that one, too.

Cortney Moore, another four-year starter, leaves with her name atop two significant career categories. The 6-3 center from Roswell, Ga., grabbed more rebounds (725) and blocked more shots (196) than any other Bulldog.

Cone's team peaked last year with a 19-10 record. This year, it struggled with offensive inconsistencies, lost some close games and finished 8-21. Clark's injury after five games was one of the factors that hurt the team offensively.
