Notre Dame, Ind. (Feb. 6, 2019) – Keysha Streater was 10 points shy of becoming the Holy Cross College women’s basketball all-time scoring leader, coming into Wednesday’s game against Robert Morris University. Streater broke the record scoring 17 points in the game, surpassing Lindsey Steffen (2010-2014). She now has a career point’s total of 1,716 points.

Streater, from Sapulpa, Oklahoma, is a senior and a two-year captain on the women’s basketball team. For her career she has averaged 14.7 points per game. Keysha made an immediate impact for the Saints in her debut season, averaging 11.1 points and 5.6 rebounds. In her sophomore year, she averaged 14 points and 7 rebounds, and was named to the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s Honorable Mention All-Conference Team. Last season, Keysha was also named CCAC Honorable Mention All-Conference while averaging 16.1 points and 7.9 rebounds. Currently the Saints are 13-14 on the season, behind Streater’s 17.2 points per game and 7.4 rebounds.

Keysha also ranks first in the Holy Cross College women’s basketball career record book with field goals made (697), field goal percentage (58.4%), and games started (110).

She would finish the game with 17 points, giving her 1,716 points with three regular season games to play.

Coach Litka on Keysha becoming the all-time scoring leader, “I am so proud of Keysha for this accomplishment. When she arrived four years ago from Oklahoma, I knew she had the potential to do great things. This is one of many great things she has accomplished as a student-athlete here at Holy Cross, but being able to leave a mark like this on our program is something special.”

“I am very excited and honored to have accomplished something like this,” said Keysha Streater on becoming the all-time scoring leader. “Achieving this is something I never imagined possible, but I could not have done it without my coaches and teammate pushing me and believe in my along the way.”
