Competition

In two seasons, Jalen has already established himself as one of the CIAA’s top three-point marksmen. As a junior last season, Jalen ranked fourth in the conference in three-point field goals made per game (2.48) and fifth in three-point field goals made (67). He capped a tremendous first season with the Falcons by earning All-CIAA Tournament honors after averaging 22.5 points and 5.5 rebounds in two games, including a career-high 30 points on 8 of 10 three-point shooting in a first-round win over Lincoln (Pa.) University. He was second on the team in scoring (10.9).

Jalen is off to a fast start in the 2019-20 season, leading the Falcons in scoring (19.0 ppg) on 52.5 percent shooting, including 41.2 percent behind the three-point arc. He ranks sixth in the CIAA in scoring, sixth in field goal percentage and ninth in three-point field goals per game (2.3). He is a big reason why the Falcons lead the CIAA in points per game, field goal percentage and three-point field goal percentage after three games.
