Ariel Jones

The SU women's basketball team features two All-PSAC guards in junior All-American Ariel Jones, pictured, and West Chester transfer Destiny Jefferson.

With the addition of transfers Destiny Jefferson and Erin Gibbons to a backcourt that already includes All-PSAC East First Team and All-American guard Ariel Jones, the Shippensburg University women's basketball team boasts on paper one of the best guard combinations in the PSAC.

Goals and expectations have no doubt been raised for the Raiders, who return a total of 11 players – including all five starters – from last year's team that finished 12-16 overall and 8-12 in the PSAC. They were tabbed third in the PSAC East, behind only Kutztown and Bloomsburg, in the PSAC East Preseason Coaches Poll.
