Chuck Moore, the 6-foot-3 guard from Plymouth-Whitemarsh who elected to transfer after his sophomore season last winter at Seton Hall, has landed at Vanderbilt of the Southeastern Conference.

Under NCAA rules, Moore must sit out a season before becoming eligible in 2000-2001.

In the space of two seasons, Jim Foster, a Mr. Nice Guy with a scowl, has raised the status of the Vanderbilt women's basketball program from middle of the pack to elite. All the teams in this weekend's Final Four have made it this far for the first time, but Vanderbilt's arrival was no surprise. When Foster, a native of Elkins Park, outside Philadelphia, left St. Joseph's for Nashville two years ago, the Commodores already had good players. "It's going to take us five years to find out how good Foster really is, because he's stepping into a load of talent that can carry him that long," Mississippi coach Van Chancellor said at the time.

As expected, the 6-foot-11, 240-pound senior said yesterday that he would accept a scholarship offer from the school, which competes in the Southeastern Conference. He returned last weekend from his official visit to the Nashville campus. "I like what the coach is doing, and the academics are great," Skuchas said, referring to coach Kevin Stallings.
