Sidney graduate Gravel, Keuka women start strong

Staff Report

Danielle Gravel came through for the Keuka College women’s basketball team Monday.

Sidney graduate Gravel scored a season-high 20 points and went 4-for-4 at the foul line in overtime to lead the Storm to a 75-67 victory over visiting Hilbert College.

Junior guard Gravel also had five assists and four steals for Keuka (3-1), which went 10-for-10 from the free-throw line in the extra period after rallying from a 15-point halftime deficit to tie the score by the end of regulation.

Gravel earned co-athlete of the week honors from Keuka earlier Monday.

Gravel scored a game-high 19 points Nov. 20 to lead the Storm (2-1) to a 61-56 victory over the University of Pitt-Bradford. She scored 11 points — including three three-pointers — in the first half, which ended with Keuka ahead, 35-23.

Gravel, who shared the Storm’s weekly honor with men’s basketball player Jared Wagner, was a First Team selection in the North Eastern Athletic Conference last season.

She also had 11 points, five rebounds and two steals in a 63-54 defeat of Brockport in the second round of the Onnie’s Classic at Nazareth College on Nov. 18. Gravel scored 13 points in the opening round, a 58-55 loss to Nazareth that marked the Storm’s season opener.

Keuka opens its North Eastern Athletic Conference schedule against Morrisville State at 5 p.m. today.
