Bishop England's Leask earns soccer scholarship to The Citadel
Logan Leask totally understands the student-athlete concept. The Bishop England soccer player is a senior who is ready for her final go-round on the high school soccer pitch. And, what a ride it has been for Leask, who earned All-Lowcountry and all-state honors the past two seasons for one of the best teams in the Lowcountry. Here's the student part of her profile. She takes all AP classes and makes straight A's. "I love math, but even it is hard because the AP classes are hard work," said Leask, who proved last week that National Signing Day isn't for football players only. "I strive to succeed." Leask signed a scholarship to play soccer for The Citadel, which is the next step in her life. After that, expect Leask to join the U.S. Navy and work aboard a submarine. Leask said she's been inspired to join the Navy because both of her parents, Lisa and Noah, served in the Navy and told their daughter about their experiences and success. The scholarship The Citadel offered was the final part of the trifecta Leask was searching for as she takes the next step in life. "It's so crazy, but I wanted to attend a military school to further my career, and I wanted to play Division I soccer," Leask said. "And not only that, I wanted to stay local. It's great the way things worked out."

Furman hosts rival The Citadel
After avenging one road loss from earlier this season on Monday, the Furman men's basketball team will look to do so again Thursday when the Paladins host rival The Citadel at 7 p.m. On Monday, Stephen Croone scored 17 points to lead Furman to a 79-72 win over UNC Greensboro. That extended the Paladins' home winning streak to eight consecutive games. Kris Acox had 15 points and eight rebounds while freshman Matt Rafferty totaled 11 points and eight boards as Furman (15-11, 9-4 Southern Conference) split the season series with the Spartans and moved back into third place in the league standings. The Citadel (10-15, 3-9) is coming off a 95-86 loss to Samford in Charleston Monday. The Bulldogs led 70-66 with less than six minutes to play before Samford scored 29 points over the final 5:52 to rally for the win. Citadel leads all of Division I in scoring with an average of 88.6 points per game. Furman leads the SoCon in scoring defense allowing just 64.2 points per game. On Jan. 16 in Charleston, Citadel put up the most points Furman has allowed all season in an 89-86 win for the Bulldogs. Citadel led that game 87-77 with 36 seconds left before the Paladins nearly pulled off a miracle. A pair of Devin Sibley free throws cut the lead to 87-86 with 4.9 seconds left. After two free throws by the Bulldogs, Croone's desperation 3-pointer bounced off the rim as time expired.
