Destiny Jefferson (Scranton, Pa./West Scranton) had a great week this week to help West Chester go 1-1 on the week. Jefferson began her week with a historic performance opposite East Stroudsburg on Wednesday evening as she poured in 33 points, which is the most a Golden Ram has scored since the 2004 season when Kiesha Mack registered 33 in a victory over Bloomsburg. This performance makes Jefferson just the third Golden Ram in the last two seasons to eclipse the 30-point barrier. This is also the second highest scoring output by a PSAC East player this season. Jefferson also registered seven rebounds and three steals.

Hyland was instrumental in two crucial victories that pushed West Chester to the top of the PSAC East. Dropped season-high 30 points of East Stroudsburg and led all players with five assists in WCU’s 88-87 victory on the road. Fueled by Hyland’s 30, West Chester snapped a six-game losing streak against East Stroudsburg inside the Koehler Fieldhouse. Hyland also put up 19 and six in a win over Shippenbsurg that gave the Golden Rams sole possession of the top spot in the division.
