| Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, 8:56 p.m.

Emily Daugherty, a redshirt sophomore women's basketball player at Lock Haven University and the third-leading all-time girls basketball scorer at Ligonier Valley High School, recently was recognized by the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

Daugherty scored 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting to power Lock Haven to a 80-75 victory at Pitt-Johnstown. She also recorded seven rebounds and three steals.

The performance helped earn her PSAC Western Division player-of-the-week honors.

Daugherty's scoring total was three points shy of a career-high 26, which she scored on Jan. 22, 2011, against Edinboro.

At Ligonier Valley, Daugherty earned three Heritage Conference player of the year awards from 2008-10.

Leader of the pack

St. Vincent College earned a 69-66 victory over Bethany (W.Va.) in men's basketball on Saturday to seize first place in the Presidents' Athletic Conference heading into this week's schedule.

The Bearcats, who benefitted by five players' double-figure scoring outputs, were led by Isaac Turner's 14 points and improved to 10-4 overall and 5-0 in the PAC.

The St. Vincent women's team was in second place in the PAC after beating Bethany, 58-46, on Saturday.

Both St. Vincent teams will welcome Geneva Wednesday night to the Carey Center for a PAC doubleheader.

Both teams returned home over the holiday break from tournaments, where they dropped decisions in championship games.

The men's team lost to Hood, 73-65, in the title game of the Rotary Club of Frederick (Md.) Holiday Tournament after defeating Penn State-Harrisburg, 78-68, in the tournament's first game.

Edmond Wright II and Dillon Stith were named to the all-tournament team.

The women's team split a pair of games at the Classic in Las Vegas, beating Denison, 58-50, before losing in the championship game to Coe, 57-42.

Seton Hill junior honored

Seton Hill forward Katie Gattuso, a junior, was named co-WVIAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

The 6-footer scored 21 points and grabbed 18 rebounds against Wheeling Jesuit for her fourth straight double-double. The Griffins have won eight in a row.

Gattuso's 18 rebounds were the most in the WVIAC this season and the most by a WVIAC player since last March.
