Former MSU star Moria Joiner gets pro basketball shot in Spain

Coming off an outstanding career at Michigan State, where she proved to be one of the toughest to wear the green and white, Moira Joiner will get the opportunity to go to Spain to pursue a pro basketball career.

Michigan State Women's Basketball is coming off a great first season under head coach Robyn Fralick. One player who has graduated after an outstanding Spartan career is Moira Joiner.

Joiner was able to have a great five years at Michigan State, despite facing several ailments throughout her career including a very severe concussion. Despite those setbacks, Joiner was able to become a real scoring threat in her final couple seasons in East Lansing.

That included her final season in 2023-24, where she was one of the top scorers on a very explosive team, that won 22 games. Joiner was the second leading scorer on the team averaging nearly 15 points per game, as she also took home All-Big Ten second-team honors.

All that hard work and effort by Joiner has resulted in a pro basketball shot in Spain.

Moira has officially joined Baxi Ferrol for the 2024-25 season in the Spanish First League. Michigan State Women's Basketball made the news official on their X page congratulating Joiner.

That wasn't only congratulations via social media, as Baxi Ferrol shared a little video of Joiner sharing the news and how she can't wait to get to Spain and suit up for the team.

You can tell the excitement in Moira's voice and she's going to make a great pro.

She was a fun player to watch at Michigan State, and her all-around game makes her a threat from anywhere on the floor. But her three-point shot can be lethal.

Baxi Ferrol is very familiar with Michigan State, as former Spartan Jenna Allen played four seasons for the club. Allen and Joiner missed being teammates at Michigan State by a year, as Allen graduated the season before Joiner arrived to campus.

They do have one thing in common they were both hardworking and tough players during their Spartan careers.

Good Luck, Mo.
