Jordan Gatchell (Manheim, Pa.) has been selected as the NEAC Men’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for his tremendously efficient week for the Penn State Harrisburg Nittany Lions.  The junior guard led the Lions to a 2-0 week after posting two-game averages of 18 points, 7 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 3 steals and a 7-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio per game while nailing six 3-pointers and going a perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line.  Gatchell helped the Lions pick up their first-ever victory over non-conference rival Lebanon Valley College with 18 points, seven assists, six boards and no turnovers in the 92-77 victory last Tuesday, and followed that up with 18 points, seven assists, four steals and a perfect 10-for-10 night from the free throw line in a 87-77 victory over NEAC foe SUNY Institute of Technology on Saturday.  Gatchell is currently second in the NEAC in both assists (4.8) and assist-to-turnover ratio (3.2) per game.

Lyndsey Brognano (Rome, N.Y.) has earned her second straight selection as the NEAC Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week after helping the SUNY Institute of Technology Wildcats open their conference play with two victories and leading her squad to a perfect 3-0 week overall.  The junior guard finished the week with three-game averages of 18 points, 4.3 assists and 3 steals per contest while shooting 47 percent (17-for-36) from the field and 83 percent (15-for-18) from the free throw line.   After beginning the week with game highs of 27 points and six assists to help the Wildcats defeat local rival Utica College 71-55 last Tuesday, Brognano went a perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line and finished with 17 points, five assists and four steals to help SUNYIT hand conference rival Penn State Harrisburg its first NEAC loss of the season with a 73-68 victory Saturday.  She finished the week with 10 points in just 27 minutes of action during a 51-30 victory over Gallaudet Sunday to give her a conference-leading 206 total points on the season thus far.
