Andrews entered the contest needing 25 points to become the 30th player in school history with 1,000 career points and finished the day with a game-high 25. He is the first Clarion player to hit 1,000 points since Mike Kromka (1,001) in 2014.

Unfortunately for the Golden Eagles (1-4 overall, 0-2 PSAC West) Andrews was pretty much all the offense. Cameron Grumley was the only other players in double figures for Clarion with 11 points, as the Golden Eagles shot 31.5 percent (17 of 54) from the field and 5 of 21 from 3-point range.

The shooting woes started from the start, as West Chester went on a 31-2 run to start the game and led 42-11 in the first half before holding a 49-23 halftime lead.

Malik Jackson led West Chester with 24 points, while Jackson Hyland added 16 points and nine rebounds. Thomas White (12 points), Matt Penecale (11 points) and Ryan Skovranko (10 points) also reached double digits for the Golden Rams.

Clarion returns to action at 5 p.m. Tuesday when it hosts Davis & Elkins.
