Latrobe grad Biss nabs PSAC East player of week honors for Shippensburg
A head-turning performance Saturday — and a quality three-game stretch in general — earned Jake Biss some conference-wide attention Monday.
Biss, a sophomore point guard from Shippensburg and a Latrobe graduate, was named Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division Athlete of the Week after his 30-point game — and a game-high five assists — in a 76-70 win against East Stroudsburg.
Biss totaled 52 points and 16 assists across three games for the 25th-ranked Raiders (12-2).
He had 12 points in a 74-67 loss to Shepherd, and 10 points and eight assists in a 62-60 victory over Mercyhurst. He played all 40 minutes.
The win over East Stroudsburg snapped the Warriors’ 19-game winning streak in conference games. Biss shot 13 of 23 from the field and made three 3-pointers in the victory.
