Buffalo, NY - Led by their sophomore point guard Danielle Hore, the D'Youville women's basketball team earned back-to-back wins last week to help move into third place in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC). 

The Spartans led off the week with a 75-68 victory over Penn State-Behrend in the AMCC Game of the Week where Danielle led the way for D'Youville. She nearly recorded her second triple-double of the season with 15 points, 16 rebounds, and eight assists in the team's victory over the Lions. She added five steals and a block.

Then on Saturday, Hore recorded her second consecutive double-double in the 62-58 win over Penn State-Altoona. She tallied 19 points with 14 rebounds, five assists, and four steals.

Danielle played 39 minutes in both games as she currently leads the team in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and minutes per game amongst players that have played in at least 60% of the team's games.

As a freshman last season, Danielle flirted with a triple-double three times while tallying eight double-doubles. Hore started all 25 games as a freshman and led the team in points (14.7), rebounds (9.7), and assists (5.6) and scored double-figures in 23 games. By season’s end, Danielle was recognized as one of the best in the conference as she was an AMCC Second Team All-Conference player. She was also acknowledged as the AMCC’s best freshman as she was named AMCC Newcomer of the Year.

A four-year basketball player at Orchard Park High School, Hore was named an All-WNY Second Team player and her team’s MVP. She played club basketball for I-90 Elite and played one year of soccer while at Orchard Park.

Danielle is an Exercise Sport Studies major at D’Youville with the career goal of becoming a personal trainer or a Physical Therapy assistant.

Danielle is the daughter of David and Shari Hore.
