Moon graduate Amirah Moore had a big week for the Washington & Jefferson women's basketball team.

She led the Presidents, 18-3 overall and 12-2 in the Presidents Athletic Conference, with 17.5 points per game in a pair of victories in PAC play.

For her efforts, Moore was named the PAC Women's Player of the Week for the first time in her career, the conference announced Monday.

Moore tallied a career-high 25 points against Westminster last Wednesday, and that total included her 1,000th collegiate point.

She finished 8 of 16 shooting from the floor and added three rebounds and two steals.

On Saturday, Moore collected 10 points on 5-for-6 shooting with five assists and two steals in the victory over Chatham.

She has started all 21 games this season and has scored in double figures in all but three of the contests.

Moore leads the team in scoring at 14.4 points a game.

Washington & Jefferson returns to action Wednesday at home against PAC foe Thiel.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
