     Luther helped the Mountain Cats to a 1-0 week with a 106-94 win over the Bulldogs.  He  registered a career-high 34 points on 11-14 shooting from the floor and 10-13 (76.9%) from behind the 3-point line.  His 10 3-pointers tied Jordan Miller's (Vinco, Pa.) school record set in 2009. In addition, Luther added a pair of free-throws, two rebounds, and a block. The 10 three-point field goals are the most by a WVIAC student-athlete since West Liberty’s Barry Shetzer made 12 on Feb. 15, 2010.
     Hester, a 6’4” sophomore guard from West Mifflin, Pa., led the top-ranked Hilltoppers to a 2-0 week. He amassed two double-doubles on the week. In a win over West Virginia State, he scored 10 points on 5-7 shooting and grabbed 10 boards in just 20 minutes of action. Hester followed-that up with 30 points and 14 rebounds against Glenville State (WV) College. He drained 15-20 shots from the field, and six of his rebounds were on the offensive glass.
