SU guard Ariel Jones totaled 57 points (28.5 PPG) in Raider wins over Wheeling and Frostburg State, garnering her PSAC vs. CIAA Conference Challenge MVP honors.


The Shippensburg University women’s basketball team opened the fourth quarter on a 14-6 run and shot 61 percent from the field in the second half Saturday night to rally and defeat Frostburg State, 80-68, to cap off the 2019 Conference Challenge from Heiges Field House.

Shippensburg (2-0) overcame 18 turnovers by shooting 48 percent from the field, scoring 22 fast-break points and making 24-of-33 (73 percent) at the free-throw line. SU trailed by five points in both the second and third quarter but overcame the skittish start with strong shooting down the stretch.
