Moran became only the fifth women's basketball player to score at least 1,000 career points, currently standing at 1,004 with 10 more games to play this season. Scoring 12.2 points per game, Moran could easily eclipse Sarah Feyerherm (1982-86) who sits in fourth place on the career-scoring list with 1,057 markers. Continentals' head coach Julie Diehl (1989-93) holds the record for most points scored in a season with 1,451.
Four-time player of the week…For the fourth time this season, senior forward Michael Schantz (Sharon, MA/Sharon) has earned Player of the Week honors from the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) for the Division III Upstate New York region.
Schantz shot better than 52% from the field in three games this week, averaging 24.7 points and eight rebounds per contest, including a 35-point explosion in a 117-78 rout of Bates College. Schantz leads the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) in points (24.1 per game) and rebounds (12.3 per game).
The Continentals show a ledger of 10-4 after splitting their first two games against NESCAC opponents this past weekend (66-74 loss at Bates; 117-78 win at Tufts). After playing Hobart and Skidmore, Hamilton will complete its schedule playing NESCAC teams.
