Yesterday was the 31st meeting all time between Suffolk and Emmanuel.

Before last night, Suffolk had only beaten Emmanuel one time-- that was a 66-55 win for the Rams at Regan Gym on Suffolk's campus on Feb. 9, 2008-- a GNAC regular season contest.

Suffolk never won on the Emmanuel campus until last night, when the Rams rode their starters to the win.  3 of 5 Suffolk's starters are underclassmen, and 4 of the 5 Suffolk starters played 35 min plus last night.  All of the starters for Suffolk came up with big games.

I was impressed with the double-double of Suffolk senior Georgia Bourikas, who had a 21 pt, 14 rebound game-- 9 of those 14 rebounds came on the offensive glass.

Also, Suffolk rookie point guard Jenni-Rose Dicecco proved with her 14 pt, 4 rebound game why she is going to be GNAC Rookie of the Year.  The GNAC has awarded her the Rookie of the Week honors several times this season.

Suffolk used 9 players in the win, with none of the bench players playing 10 min plus.

Suffolk out rebounded Emmanuel by 11, and shot 95% (19-20) from the FT line.

Overall, I felt that Suffolk showed more poise than Emmanuel last night and deserved the win.  I was a little disappointed in Emmanuel's Yuleska Ramirez- Tejeda's reaction to a foul call from one of the officials in the first half.  She reacted by slamming the ball down on the court-- thereby also earning a technical foul.  Suffolk hit all 4 of their FT attempts on that play.  As a result, Yuleska Ramirez-Tejeda will be joining the Emmanuel softball team as a utility player 1 game earlier than she would have liked.  She played shortstop in high school.

One of the reasons that Yuleska Ramirez-Tejeda transferred to Emmanuel was to be a 2 sport athlete in college-- she was not going to be able to do that at a low major d1 school.

The holidays are over and for many Division III basketball teams, the conference schedules are already in full swing. It doesn't take much time before a casual break ramps up into high-pressure games.

Hoopsville is also back from it's holiday "break" on Sunday evening. Dave tries to get caught up after a couple of weeks of action and wild results. Who impressed during the holidays? Who (re)started conference play with a bang? What does the final two months of the regular season have in store? What will the new year's first Top 25 ballots look like?

Plus, there is a new wins leader in Division III women's basketball. It's not Mike Strong. It's Andy Yosinoff of Emmanuel. We chat with the all-time winningest coach in DIII history.

Just saw a rare thing in basketball.  Emmanuel's  Yuleska Ramirez-Tejeda scored the equivalent of an own goal in soccer with 1:03 to go in the first half of the GNAC title game.😯  She was going for a defensive board but put the ball in her own hoop, and scored 2 pts for the Monks.

St Joe's Maine up 34-31 at the half.

Emmanuel was up 47-42 with 1:10 left in the 3rd quarter, but the Monks hit 2 straight 3 pointers to end the third.  The Monks open up the 4th quarter with a third straight 3 pointer.  Monks up 51-49 with 8:36 left in regulation.  Monks have a huge advantage with their 3 point shooting.

 Setting up for an excellent final 5 minutes.  Emmanuel up 56-54 with 5:29 remaining.

Congrats to Emmanuel on winning the GNAC!  Great defensive stop at the end for the 65-64 victory!

I have been encouraged by the placement of both Emmanuel and St Joe's Maine in their respective brackets.  Both teams have first and second round games that both the Saints and Monks can win and get to the sweet 16.  The other 2 top two teams in the GNAC (Albertus Magnus and Suffolk) are unsung teams, but play basketball at a very high d3 level.  This should be a very interesting weekend.
