PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Women's Basketball) – For the first time in nearly four years, a Shawnee State women's basketball player has been named the NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Player of the Week, as Ali Zieverink (SR/West Chester, Ohio) earned the distinction, the national office announced Tuesday evening.

On the week, Zieverink averaged 20.3 points per contest to go along with 10 rebounds in three victories for the No. 7-ranked Bears. Perhaps most impressive was her 73.5 shooting percentage from the field, as the senior forward connected on 25-of-34 attempts from the field.

COCHRAN, Ga. (Baseball) – Early offense from Middle Georgia State led to a lead of three after two innings played and the Shawnee State baseball team scored to tighten the game, but a two run-fifth inning from the Knights led them to a 5-2 victory over the Bears Saturday afternoon at Stucky Field.

Portsmouth, Ohio (Men's Basketball) – The Shawnee State men's basketball team led early in the game, taking a six point lead into the half, but with 11:26 remaining on the clock, the Bears surrendered the lead following a 13-point run by the visiting University of Pikeville en route to a 75-68 defeat on Saturday afternoon at Frank & Janis Waller Gymnasium.

Frederick Moore (SO/Cincinnati, Ohio) finished the contest with a team-high 17 points and nine rebounds. Moore tallied a majority of his points in the first half, as Pikeville tightened up on the defensive end in the second half, forcing Shawnee to shoot only 40.6 percent from the field.

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (Women's Basketball) – Despite a tight first half, some stout defense and a motivated offense allows the Bears to regroup and go on to defeat the University of Pikeville, 93-75, on Saturday afternoon on Senior Day at Frank & Janis Waller Gymnasium.

Prior to the contest, seniors Ali Zieverink (SR/West Chester, Ohio) and Abby Feuchter (SR/Cincinnati, Ohio) were honored for their tremendous careers donning the Shawnee State uniform.

Madison Ridout (SO/Jackson, Ohio) was dialed in early, shooting a perfect 3-for-3 and 2-for-2 from the three point range, but the highlight of the half came as time expired in the first quarter, Feuchter sank a three from just past half-court as the clock hit triple-zero to pull the Bears within three of Pikeville's 25-22 advantage.
