After not hitting double-digit scoring in three straight games, Central York High School graduate Aurielle Mosley got back on track in a big way last week.
She averaged 20 points and 10.5 rebounds per game in a 2-0 week for Millersville University. For her efforts, the Marauders' leading scorer was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East Division Women's Basketball Athlete of the Week for a career-best fourth time this season. It is the ninth time of her career that she has garnered the award.
Mosley posted back-to-back 20-point outings against East Stroudsburg and Kutztown, respectively. Against the Warriors last Wednesday, Mosley led the team in scoring with her 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting and a perfect 6-for-6 from the line. She also posted eight boards and two blocks in 26 minutes.
Against the Golden Bears at home on Saturday, the redshirt senior helped break a tie in the standings with the Golden Bears for second place in the East standings by putting up her fifth double-double performance of the season with 20 points and 13 rebounds. More importantly, 14 of those 20 points came after halftime when the Marauders trailed by two at the break.
The bump in scoring puts Mosley on the cusp of the top five in scoring in the PSAC. She has a 14.2 points-per-game average, which ranks sixth, just one-tenth of a point behind fifth-place Hannah Heeter of Clarion.
Mosley is also tied for sixth in the PSAC in rebounding at 8.2 rebounds per contest and tied-for-second in blocks per game at 2.5 rejections per outing. Mosley and Heeter are the only two players to rank in the top six of the conference in all three categories.
Mosley is the only PSAC East player to be named as the PSAC East Athlete of the Week more than one time.
