When a team needs a stop at the end of a game to preserve at lead, they usually try to place their best defender on the best offensive player from the opposite team. Some defenders step up to this challenge while others fold. The ones who rise to the challenge a lot of the time get deemed as lockdown defenders. Take a look at some of the players in Louisiana who get it done on the defensive end.

Moore is one of the first players that I think about when I think of lockdown defender skills.  He takes either the point guard or the other team’s go-to player and gives them fits in every contest.  Moore has a combination of quick hands and a large wing span which translates into plenty of tipped passes or straight up steals from who he is defending.  He is competitive on every possession and wins many of them because of it.  If Washington-Marion needs a stop in the upcoming playoffs, best believe Moore will be the one taking the challenge to make that stop.
