Toga,
   There was the thought that Katie C was going to be one of those frosh impact players; didn't work out that way.

Well, Landmark posters, along with leaving the league, i truly hope you haven't made a collective decision to leave the D3 website!   Yes, you can brag a little bit about beating King's (Scranton) and beating DeSales (Moravian).  It is however, a long season, so we'll see what transpires over the next three months.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Kate,
  Happy Thanksgiving to you, also! We haven't left the msg board, merely cautiously optimistic about the coming conference season. Both the Landmark and the Freedom ought to be competitive for the 4 conference tournament positions and home court advantage. Kings could have easily won the Royals game after playing well against Muhlenberg on Saturday.

  I'm watching the videocast of Scranton-Marywood and they(NMTV) do a good thing by superimposing the score, game clock, 30-sec clock, and team fouls while the game is in progress; no more having to wait for a timeout to get the info. Hope everybody employs the capability.
  Lady Royals getting outhustled on defensive board 14-11 at the half; it's a season-long if not multiple-year problem.

Ronk:
Right you are...out-hustled, confused on both offense & defense & substitution patterns that are down right scary.
Absolutely no maturity from the beginning of the season through tonights game.
Again, I can't even imagine how bad the team would be if two very-very good players didn't fall in his lap.
The recruiting efforts over the past 5 years by the newer coaches in DIII have made a definite impact.
Getting a call or the occasional visit at a game just doesn't cut it anymore.

Holy Cow:
A CJ sighting....and to think...... a post after a Wilkes win. Go figure.
Now where were your insights after the Scranton men easily handled the KFCers last year?
At any rate, I truly do applaud the Wilkes women on their win.
It may have been 35 years & 60 losses in between victories but, a win is a win.
They absolutely outplayed & out-hustled the Lady Royals...nice to see their teamwork pay off.
As for FDU...another great story developing before our eyes. Good for them as well.
A few more wins, especially on the road & they will start believing....if they aren't already.
Young, smart, aggressive coaches are making the most out of their opportunity.
The days of the part-time coach just rolling the balls out & letting superior talent do it all are coming to an end.
Colleges are finally realizing there are some really talented coaches willing to begin their journey at the DIII level...the young women that play for those coaches will be all the better.

  Dean Corwin mentioned during the videocast yesterday the roster addition of a sophomore transfer from D2 West Chester - Stephanie Keyes 5-9 SG from Archbishop Wood(PA).

Time for a certain coach to be sent to mandatory clinics on time management & when & how to use time outs.
Scranton had a clear advantage in this game yet, midway in the second half Cal Lutheran goes on a 15-0 run before our legend figures it's time to stop the bleeding.
They end up on a 23-4 run & win by a bucket...I honestly believe this guy must think he can cash in all his saved time outs through the years  for a cash refund.
I bet that time out he saved with 24 seconds left in Springfield during the Final Four a few years back will be worth quite a bit.
On another note...it will be interesting to see the final stats.
It certainly appeared CLU was on the line far more than the Lady Royals. It becomes even more curious when the Lady Royals were in a zone for most of the game.

   Lady Royals allowed 1 CLU player to get 7 offensive rebounds-season-long problem with inability/lack of concern in this regard. Also, inability to feed the post players in the paint;  Meredith has to work harder and smarter to get open, but no one has shown an ability to effectively get the ball to her, anyhow. Only saw one screen attempt in the lane away from the ball between the post players; it should happen on every possession.
  Defensively, the Lady Royals benefitted from numerous CLU misses from 3 feet; could have been worse. Emmanuel tomorrow is just as big as the Lady Royals on the frontline and have a top-notch scorer, to boot. Hoping the players refocus tomorrow.
   On a positive note, it's a pleasure to see the continual improvement in Lindsay as a PG.

  A quality turnaround for the Lady Royals in coming back from 31-17 deficit to beat a good Emmanuel team. Defensive effort was outstanding in the 2nd half, holding them to 13 points and their leading scorer to only 3. Shernai had a career defensive effort, limiting their high scorer and coming up with rebounds, steals, deflections, and a nice lefty hook basket. Players fought through a lot of aggressive defensive non-calls while dribbling; should prepare them for the conference battles with Catholic, Moravian, and Juniata.
  As usual, plenty(17 1st half turnovers;inbound plays under offensive basket) to work on before Juniata, but some optimistic developments to make the trip home much brighter.

Looking to remain unbeaten this season, No. 21 CUA shook off a tough shooting performance to down William Paterson 60-52 in the championship of the CUA Courtyard US Capital Holiday Tournament on Monday afternoon.  The Cardinals improve to 11-0 with the victory, after receiving 15 points and seven rebounds from tournament MVP Kelli Josephsen and 8 points, 13 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals from Emily Grabiak.

Both teams struggled to find their shooting after playing their second game in as many days.  CUA connected on only 28% from the floor, while the Pioneers hit on just 26%.  The game was tight throughout, with seven lead changes and two ties.

A jumper by William Paterson's Dana Jeter 4:23 into the game put the visitors on top 12-7, but CUA scored 9 of the next 11 points, capped by Karlyn Dixon's 3-pointer, to grab its first lead of the day, 16-14.

Floriana Borova's jumper with 4:50 remaining in the half gave William Paterson a one-point advantage, but Josephsen answered down the other end to give the lead back to the Cardinals.

A 3-pointer by Josephsen in the final 10 seconds then sent CUA into halftime with its largest lead up to that point, 26-20.

A layup by Josephine Migash early in the second gave CUA a double-digit lead, but the Pioneers were able to cut it to a six-point game with 15:30 remaining.

Two free throws by Jenny McGann again pushed the lead up to 10, before William Paterson responded by scoring 14 of the next 15 points to surge in front 41-38 with 8:30 on the clock.

Two minutes later, Josephsen tied things at 44 with 6:26 remaining, and Grabiak's basket two minutes after that put the Cards on top 46-44.

After a Migash layup pushed the lead up to four, Borova splashed a three down the other end to pull the Pioneers within one with 2:41 left to play.

From that point forward, CUA got the job done at the free throw line, sinking 12 of 12 attempts in the final 2:30 to seal the win and move to 11-0.

Josephsen sank 5 of 11 shots from the floor and all four of her free throw attempts to finish with 15 points.  That came on the heels of a 14-point, 14-rebound performance in Sunday's semifinal win over Pitt-Greensburg.

Woerner joined Josephsen in double figures with 14 points, while Migash finished with 11.

Jeter led the visitors with 16 points and 11 boards, while Borova scored 15, but she connected on only 6 of 24 shots.

In Monday's consolation game, Oswego defeated Pitt-Greensburg by a score of 63-51 in overtime.

CUA is now off until Saturday, January 5 when the Cardinals welcome Merchant Marine Academy to the DuFour Center for a Landmark Conference contest.  Start time is set for 4 p.m.

Cuabigdog,
  I noticed Katerina Owunna missing from the holiday games; do you know why? Looks like Josie Migash filled in capably, making the all-tourney team. Looking forward to the clash with Scranton in 2 1/2 weeks.

  I should mention Tayler's return to action with a fine effort, finishing a couple of transition baskets from passes from Lindsay(?), amid double-digit scoring.
  Also, the new foul-shooting coach should be pleased with the team's performance this season.
