Jacobo, recognized as one of the best players in the Atlantic Region and in the entirety of Division II, was named the 2017 PSAC West Athlete of the Year. In January 2017, he was one of 100 players named to the Bevo Francis Award Watch List, which honors the best player in Division II, Division III, and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics. Jacobo and the fourth-seeded Crimson Hawks will play Kutztown University in the opener of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, March 11.

Lauren, a guard for the PSAC Champion IUP women’s basketball team, earned her first postseason award being named to the 2017 All-PSAC West second team. She leads the team in three-point percentage and ranks 10th in the conference for three-point shots. Lauren and the second-seeded Crimson Hawks will play Johnson C.
