Panthers Hangs Tough with Nation's #3 Team

Saturday, December 03, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Boxscore

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team pushed the third-ranked team in the nation to its limits on Saturday. The Panthers went toe-to-toe with Mohawk Valley Community College Saturday before falling by a final score of 61-52. The loss, the first at home this season, drops the Panthers’ overall record to 5-3 and Region III record to 3-3. Mohawk Valley is now 9-2 overall and 8-1 in Region III.

The Panthers fell behind 13-6 after the first quarter, but came back in the second, outscoring the Hawks 17-13 to head to the half trailing by just three points. The margin was just two points, 29-27, in the middle of the third when Tompkins Cortland’s strongest post defender, Jaida Washington (Elmira H.S./Elmira), picked up her fourth foul and had to go to the bench. Mohawk Valley took advantage over the final minutes of the quarter to push the lead to 34-26 heading into the final quarter.

The Panthers opened the fourth quarter with a 9-5 run, pulling with three points on a three-pointer by Tatiana Minnick (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) with 7:13 left. The deficit held at three points at 50-47 with 4:00 left on the clock, and after Mohawk Valley pushed it back to seven, a three-pointer from Anasah DeMember (Elmira H.S./Elmira) made the score 54-50 with 2:08 left. The two teams traded baskets over the next 30 seconds before Mohawk Valley sealed the win at the free throw line, making five from the charity stripe in the closing two minutes.

The final stats showed how close the game was. Tompkins Cortland finished the game 20-of-63 from the floor, including 6-of-17 from three-point range; Mohawk Valley was 20-of-64 and 5-of-18. The biggest difference came from the number of trips to the free throw line, where Mohawk Valley made 16-of-30 and Tompkins Cortland was only 6-of-15.

DeMember led the Panthers with 17 points, helping the home team to a 23-10 advantage in bench points. Tyler Evans (Westhill H.S./Stamford, Conn.) had 10 points and six rebounds, and Washington finished with 10 rebounds and five blocked shots, despite playing just 16 minutes.

Next up for the Panthers is a Tuesday home date with Finger Lakes Community College.

Coaches–Women's Basketball

David Stevenson

Head Coach

Dave StevensonMSAC Coach of the Year
2010, 2013, 2014

Coach Stevenson enters his third season with the women's basketball program, following a similar track as he used during the most successful run in the history of the College's men's basketball program. In both cases, Stevenson inherited a program in need of rebuilding, and did so quickly. In 2015-16, the Panthers women's team posted the best winning percentage in over a decade, making both the conference and regional playoffs. During his decade directing the men's program, Coach Stevenson's teams established new records for wins, topping 20 victories three times, and won the Mid-State Athletic Conference championship three times (including his last two seasons). The goals for the women are similar, and the foundation is being laid.

Stevenson joined the men's basketball staff as an assistant in 2003-04, bringing a strong work ethic and knowledge of the game to the floor each night. He is well known for caring for his students both on and off the court, tracking academic progress as well as developing basketball skills. He has worked hard to bring quality players into the program, and to help those players continue their careers at the four-year level. In his time with the program, he has helped players earn scholarships to Mercy College in New York, Drake University in Iowa, and Avila University in Kansas. His former players have also shown up on the rosters at Buffalo State, Oneonta State, Oswego State, Old Westbury College, Morrisville State, Southwestern Oklahoma State, SUNY Fredonia, and Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire. A former standout athlete at Trumansburg High and a college baseball player, Coach Stevenson is Tompkins Cortland's assistant athletic director.

Jeff Riker

Assistant Coach

Jeff Riker

Coach Riker returns for his seventh season on the bench with the women's program. A strong recruiter and teacher on the court, he has been instrumental in bringing in the program's top players and helping them reach their potential. His passion for the game extends back to when he was an IAC all-star at Dryden High. He played college ball at Onondaga Community College, appearing the Region III All-Star Game, and at SUNY Potsdam.

Coach Riker has consistently been supportive of Tompkins Cortland's student-athletes, both on and off the court, a quality he shares with Head Coach Stevenson.

Panthers Hangs Tough with Nation's #3 Team

Saturday, December 03, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Boxscore

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team pushed the third-ranked team in the nation to its limits on Saturday. The Panthers went toe-to-toe with Mohawk Valley Community College Saturday before falling by a final score of 61-52. The loss, the first at home this season, drops the Panthers’ overall record to 5-3 and Region III record to 3-3. Mohawk Valley is now 9-2 overall and 8-1 in Region III.

The Panthers fell behind 13-6 after the first quarter, but came back in the second, outscoring the Hawks 17-13 to head to the half trailing by just three points. The margin was just two points, 29-27, in the middle of the third when Tompkins Cortland’s strongest post defender, Jaida Washington (Elmira H.S./Elmira), picked up her fourth foul and had to go to the bench. Mohawk Valley took advantage over the final minutes of the quarter to push the lead to 34-26 heading into the final quarter.

The Panthers opened the fourth quarter with a 9-5 run, pulling with three points on a three-pointer by Tatiana Minnick (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) with 7:13 left. The deficit held at three points at 50-47 with 4:00 left on the clock, and after Mohawk Valley pushed it back to seven, a three-pointer from Anasah DeMember (Elmira H.S./Elmira) made the score 54-50 with 2:08 left. The two teams traded baskets over the next 30 seconds before Mohawk Valley sealed the win at the free throw line, making five from the charity stripe in the closing two minutes.

The final stats showed how close the game was. Tompkins Cortland finished the game 20-of-63 from the floor, including 6-of-17 from three-point range; Mohawk Valley was 20-of-64 and 5-of-18. The biggest difference came from the number of trips to the free throw line, where Mohawk Valley made 16-of-30 and Tompkins Cortland was only 6-of-15.

DeMember led the Panthers with 17 points, helping the home team to a 23-10 advantage in bench points. Tyler Evans (Westhill H.S./Stamford, Conn.) had 10 points and six rebounds, and Washington finished with 10 rebounds and five blocked shots, despite playing just 16 minutes.

Next up for the Panthers is a Tuesday home date with Finger Lakes Community College.


Record-Setting Performance Leads Panthers to Win

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Boxscore

A record-setting performance from freshman Jaida Washington (Elmira H.S./Elmira) highlighted the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball 62-53 win over Jefferson Community College Tuesday. The game was the Mid-State Athletic Conference opener for both team. Tompkins Cortland’s overall record is now 5-2 while the Region III mark is 3-2. Jefferson is 2-5 overall and 1-3 in region.

It was the first game in over a week for each team, and both offenses showed some rust. After the Panthers took a 16-14 lead at the end of the first quarter, the two teams combined to make just 3-of-32 shots in the second quarter, each team scoring just nine points. In the third quarter each team scored just 11 points, leaving Tompkins Cortland with a 36-34 lead. In the final quarter, the offenses finally came to life.

In the fourth, both teams started to make some shots, especially the Panthers. The home team made 53% of its shots in the fourth, stretching the lead to as 11 points before settling at the nine-point final spread. By the time the final horn sounded, the Panthers had post a final shooting percentage of 30.8% compared to 22.5% for Jefferson.

Washington had a lot to do with Jefferson’s struggles. She blocked a school-record 13 shots, including nine in the first half. And when Jefferson did manage to get a shot off, Washington did her part to limit their chances, collecting 18 rebounds, including 14 on the defensive end. She added seven points to her amazing stat line. Tyler Evans (Westhill H.S./Stamford, Conn.) led the offense, scoring 18 points and just missing a double-double with nine rebounds. Tatiana Minnick (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) had a strong line of 10 points, five rebounds, five steals, and four assists.

Tompkins Cortland is back in action Saturday, hosting Mohawk Valley Community College at 3 p.m.
