Moody's 16 points brought the senior's career total to 1,013 and made him the ninth Patriot to reach the milestone.

"He's been a wonderful player for us for three years," Patriots coach Gary Grewe said. "He's gotten better every year. You can count on him to give solid production every night on both ends of the court.

"He's been an excellent team player for us, just a great team player. He's been a rock for us to build around."

Tomas Parker added 14 points for the Patriots, who led 17-0 before Aitkin's Danny Daily hit a 3-pointer with 10:10 remaining in the first half.
