Hot-shooting Biss tabbed PSAC East player of week
At Shippensburg, happiness is Biss.
Sophomore basketball player Jake Biss continues to assert himself into a viable go-to role for the Raiders (22-6, 16-4 PSAC East), and is developing into one of the PSAC’s top scorers.
His scoring average has been on a steady incline, a result of his well-rounded game that includes a syrupy pull-up jumper, deep-range potential and a get-to-the-rim approach when needed.
His recent offensive tear landed him PSAC East Athlete of the Week recognition.
