On Tuesday night, William Paterson senior guard Floriana Borova may have had her best-game of her college career.

She came into the game with a 21.4 points per game average. But in the New Jersey Athletic Conference Tournament semifinal game against The College of New Jersey, she doubled her average in one game.

Borova scored 48 points against the Lions in their final regular season at Packer Hall. With just seconds left in the game, she had the ball in her hands, and went to the net.

She shot a jump shot over a Lions defender, and the ball would eventually go in the basket. However, those two points were waived off, because her head coach Erin Monahan called a time out after Borova shot the ball.

“I don’t know,” said New Jersey Athletic Conference commissioner Terry Small said. “Unfortunately, we don’t have tournament records. It was the most points in any game by an NJAC women’s basketball player since the conference began keeping statistics in 2003.”

Borova’s epic performance, included 34 points in the second half. Her teammates only scored 8 of the 42 points the Pioneers scored in the second half.

The 48 points are the most points ever scored at Packer Hall by a women’s basketball player. The previous high was by former Lions player Hillary Klimowicz on January 24, 2009, when she scored 35 points.
