January 29, 2013
Junior Jessica Bandrowski (Center Moriches, NY/Center Moriches) averaged 24.3 points per game to lead Keuka College’s women’s basketball team to an undefeated 3-0 week, including a 102-98 overtime win over rival SUNYIT.
Bandrowski’s stellar play netted her Player of the Week accolades from both the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) and the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) as the NEAC’s Student-Athlete of the Week and the ECAC Division III Upstate Player of the Week.
In addition to scoring 73 points, Bandrowski averaged 7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 4.3 steals over three wins as Keuka (13-2, 10-1 NEAC) remained in first place in the NEAC North.
Bandrowski, a second-team All-NEAC guard last year, scored 27 points on 10 of 17 shooting, including hitting 6 of 10 three-pointers, during Wednesday’s 90-70 road win over Cazenovia College. She added 8 rebounds with 6 steals and 4 assists in the win.
Facing rival SUNYIT, Bandrowski had her best game of the season as the Storm defeated the Wildcats for the sixth straight time, and ninth time in the last 10 meetings.
Bandrowski scored a career-high 34 points to go with 8 rebounds, 6 steals and 4 assists as the Storm earned a thrilling overtime win over SUNYIT. Keuka snapped SUNYIT’s six-game conference winning streak while scoring the school’s most points in a game since a 101-35 win over Practical Bible during the 1993-94 season.
Leading 97-95 in OT, Bandrowski hit a pair of free throws and added a steal and a fast-break layup for a 101-95 lead with 22 seconds remaining. Following a SUNYIT ‘3’, Bandrowski went 1-for-2 at the free-throw line for a four-point lead, and SUNYIT missed a three-pointer to seal the win.
On Sunday, Bandrowski scored 12 points with 6 assists and 5 rebounds during a 72-56 win over Cobleskill as Keuka improved to 8-0 at home while picking up its seventh straight NEAC win.
For the season, Bandrowski leads Keuka in scoring (16.6 ppg.), assists (69) and steals (56), while shooting 44 percent from the field and 35.2 percent on three-pointers.
The quick guard has scored in double-figures in 14 of 15 games and is fourth in the NEAC in scoring, third in assists per game (4.6) and third in steals per game (3.7).
The Green and Gold travel to Morrisville State for a 5 p.m. game Wednesday night, before returning home to face Wilson College (Feb. 2) and Penn State-Abington (Feb. 3).
