Kiley Evans, of Cazenovia, recorded her second career double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds to take home the first Choice Hotels/Northeast Conference player of the week award of her career. Evans went 6-for-10 from the floor including 2-of-3 from beyond the arc in the Pioneers 65-48 opening night victory over Saint Peter's. Her second three ball triggered a 17-4 SHU run that opened up a 48-37 second half lead for the Pioneers.
The sophomore guard's 11 rebounds tied a career high set in her freshman year against Stony Brook. Evans point and rebound totals in her 37 minutes of action led all players on the floor. Evans is coming off of a solid freshmen campaign that saw her average 11.3 points per game en route to being named to the NEC All-Rookie squad.
The Pioneers return to action tomorrow night for a 7 p.m. clash in the William H. Pitt Center with the Saint Joseph's Hawks.
