It turns out Randy Moss isn't the only athlete in the family.

Sydney Moss, the daughter of the talented former NFL receiver, exploded for 63 points in a game for Thomas More College in Division III basketball on Friday night. It marked a new record for D-III women's hoops, and also led her team to the final of the Presidents' Athletic Conference tournament with a 106-88 win over Waynesburg.

According to the Associated Press, Moss broke the record by hitting two free throws with 18 seconds left in the game, breaking a record set by Ann Gilbert more than 20 years ago.

Gilbert scored 61 points for Oberlin College against Allegheny College on Feb. 6, 1991.

Cindy Brown holds the Division I record with 60 points for Long Beach State against San Jose State on Feb. 16, 1987.

On Friday, Moss finished 24-of-41 with just one 3-pointer, but she also hit 14 of 16 free throws. For the season, Moss is averaging 28.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game for Thomas More, which is currently 27-0.

Moss is listed at 5'10" and spent her freshman season at Florida after being a heralded Kentucky high school recruit, but she eventually transferred in a move to get closer to her family. If you remember that old Nike commercial, Randy Moss was quite the prep basketball player himself along with Jason "White Chocolate" Williams.

As for the younger Moss, even though she might not be in the SEC, this is a nice accomplishment for her. She's also been very busy on Twitter thanking fans and followers.

Moss has been the MVP of her team; now let's see if she can cap it off with an undefeated season and a conference championship with a win over Washington & Jefferson on Saturday afternoon.

But the bigger question is, where do the Moss' fit in with father-kid combos of sports royalty?
