WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – A career-high 32 points and nine rebounds at Susquehanna earned sophomore guard D’Yante Doughty (Baltimore, Md./Calvert Hall) his first MAC Commonwealth Player of the Week honor, the conference office in Annville, Pa. announced on Monday, Nov. 26.

He shot 10-of-14 from the field including 5-of-9 from 3-point land, as well as hitting seven free throws to make up his 32 points in an 80-68 loss to Susquehanna. The 5-10 guard added a career-high nine rebounds, three assists, three steals.

Doughty became the first Warrior to score 30 points in a game since David Johnson had 31 against Stevenson in the 2016-17 season finale. He is just the sixth Warrior in the past 10 years to post 30 points in a game.

The 5-10 guard is fourth in the MAC Commonwealth in scoring, averaging 18.7 points per game, fourth in 3-point field goals per game (2.3), 10th in field goal percentage (.457) and 11thin steals per game (1.8).

Doughty is the second Warrior to earn the award this season, with senior forward Darius James (Brooklyn, N.Y./Bishop Loughlin) bringing home the honor on Nov. 12. 

The Warriors are back on the court on Monday, Nov. 26 when they head to crosstown rival Penn College for a 6 p.m. non-conference game in the Bardo Gymnasium.
