Starting guard Bionca Chambers made a name for herself at Felician University her freshman and sophomore years. As a sophomore she earned 3rd Team CACC All-Conference, 2nd Team ALL-MET Women’s Division II, and Player of the Week.

Both seasons she helped Felician reach the play-offs and set a few records along the way. She scored a career-high 34 points, which was only the second time a Felician University women’s basketball player scored 34. The first time was in February 2015 and was scored by Felician’s current assistant coach Ashley Morris. Both Morris and Chambers tied for second-place most scored points. The most ever-scored was by Tyzell Bozeman in 2003 when she finished with 49 points. This was the second time Bionca had over 30 points for Felician. The last time a Felician women’s basketball player had 30+ points in two games was during the 2002-2003 season (record also set by Bozeman).

Although Bionca enjoyed her time playing for Felician University, a change in her academic major required her to look elsewhere. Bionca opted to switch to a computer-science based major that has ties to criminal justice, law, and intellectual property. Her ultimate goal is to attend law school after she graduates. She began looking for schools with strong computer science programs that would allow her to pursue this major while still graduating within four years. She chose New Haven and is looking forward to the challenges of competing in the NE-10 under Coach Deborah Buff.
