Senior Michal Alge, a forward on the Yeshiva University’s women’s basketball team, and Simcha Halpert, a junior guard on the YU men’s basketball team, both scored their 1,000th career points this month and earned spots on the Skyline Conference Weekly Honor Roll last week.
Michal Alge, a Boston native, became the second player in program history to achieve this milestone. She now has the most career rebounds in YU women’s basketball history and is the first player to both score 1,000 points and grab 1,000 rebounds for her career. Simcha Halpert, a Los Angeles native, was named Most Outstanding Player of the Skyline Conference championships; he led the Maccabees to their first Skyline Conference championship and NCAA tournament bid in program history, was named the 2017-18 Skyline Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, and was a Jewish Sports Review All-American. He is now 27th on the university’s men’s basketball all-time scoring list.
