A trio of players on St. Joseph’s College basketball teams – two in Long Island and one in Brooklyn – have each eclipsed 1,000 career points this season.
Victoria Porcasi, a junior from Franklin Square, New York, hit 1,000 with a three-pointer midway through the fourth quarter of SJC Brooklyn’s 78-55 win over Purchase State College on Jan. 13. At SJC Long Island five days later, senior Isaiah Moore scored his 1,000th point during the Eagles’ 61-53 win over Purchase.
Back in November, senior Andrea Iavarone became the eighth player in SJC Long Island women’s basketball program history to eclipse the 1,000 career point mark. She hit the milestone during the Eagles’ season-opening 103-55 victory at Medgar Evers College.
The Miller Place resident is averaging 19.6 points per game this season. She broke the program’s single-game rebound record earlier this month, grabbing 27 boards during an 83-69 victory over Farmingdale State College.
Porcasi passed 1,000 points in just her 66th collegiate game. The team captain has averaged 15.2 points per game over her first three seasons with SJC Brooklyn. Earlier this month, she scored a career-high 28 points during a Bears’ win over Sarah Lawrence, shooting 52.6 percent from the field. She has scored at least 20 points in eight contests this season.
Moore Scoring More Than Ever
Moore also made a three-point shot to reach 1,000 career points. The North Babylon senior’s first-half trey was part of his game-high 18 points. The four-year starter is averaging a career-high 13.8 points per game this season. He leads the team in scoring and is second on the team in rebounding.
