Jan. 9: Fourteen 3-pointers from seven different shooters helped the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team break out of a mini-slump from long-range as the Golden Knights  tied their season-high in points during an 86-58 win over St. Lawrence on Tuesday evening at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights broke into the win column in conference play with the victory, moving to 5-7 overall and 1-4 in the Liberty League. St. Lawrence fell to 3-9 overall and 1-4 in conference games. Clarkson is just beginning a lengthy home stand, and will host Union and Ithaca this weekend. After averaging only seven 3-point makes per game in its last four games, Clarkson shot well from the get-go against St. Lawrence, hitting on five of 11 attempts in the first half. However, it was in the second half that Clarkson pulled away thanks to 3-pointers from a variety of sources. Six players hit a least one 3-pointer in the second half for the Knights. Things got off to a slow start for both teams, as neither scored on its first two possessions, but St. Lawrence broke through with a 3-pointer at the 18:25 mark. Clarkson would tie the game 15 seconds later and would never trail again, combining an inside-outside effort that focused on Gary Hanley making moves on the block and Clarkson's shooters hitting from the perimeter, both inside the arc and out.  There was never one big run that led to the Golden Knights rolling out to a double digit lead, just a steady run with drives to the basket and 3-point field goals. Clarkson did end the half with a fastbreak dunk from Matt Higgins, giving the Knights a 16-point lead at intermission. Matthew Hornak hit a 3-pointer from the corner in the early portion of the second half to put Clarkson up by 19 and a few moments later the Knights led by 20-plus. That would be the case for most of the second half, as St. Lawrence was able to get within less than 20 for only a total of 54 seconds in the final 17 minutes of the game. Sophomore Matt Higgins led the Knights with 21 points, scoring 14 of his game-high total in the second half, marking his third consecutive 20-point game. Playing extended minutes for the first time all season, freshman Jason Phelps scored 11 points in 21 minutes, including three 3-point field goals. Liam Ellis also added 11 points while Gary Hanley picked up his first double-double of the season, recording 11 points and 10 rebounds. It marked the fifth time in the past six games that Hanley has reached double digits in rebounds. For St. Lawrence, Ben Crawford had a double-double on 11 points and 10 boards and Chris Miner scored a team-best 15 points. Dom DeRegis also chipped in 11 points for the Saints.

Jan. 6: A last second tip attempt was broken up on what could have been a game-tying layup as the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team came up empty on the road this weekend, dropping a 61-59 decision to Bard College on Saturday afternoon. The Golden Knights fell to 4-7 overall and 0-4 in Liberty League games while the Raptors moved to 4-7 and 2-2 in conference contests. Clarkson looks to pick up its first league win when it starts a seven-game run of home games against St. Lawrence on Tuesday. The final minute of Saturday's contest took much longer than the normal 60 seconds as Bard was able to hold off the Knights with just enough free throws. Clarkson trailed by five with 12 seconds to go (59-54) but Matt Higgins hit a 3-pointer with five seconds remaining to cut the deficit to just two. After a quick foul, Bard made just one of its free throw chances at the other end. When the Knights sprinted up the court the other way, the Raptors wisely fouled to put Malaquias Canery on the line rather than see him take a long 3-pointer. Canery made both, and the Knights were again forced to foul, with the Raptors making one of two free throws. With just a little over a second to go, Clarkson heaved the ball down court, made a quick catch and called timeout to set up a more manageable shot attempt. Just five-tenths of a second remained, and Liam Ellis's pass from the scorers' table to the rim was tipped away to allow the Raptors to gain the win. The opening minutes of the contest did not make it appear as if the game would be a nail-biter. Clarkson opened with a basket on its first possession, but missed its next seven shots and found itself trailing in the early going. Although the offense did pick up the pace after the first five minutes, the Knights still trailed by one at the midway point of the half, 15-14. That small deficit quickly grew to double figures as Bard made four straight 3-pointers to stretch its advantage to 29-14 by the 7:21 mark, and although Clarkson was able to chip away, a Matt Higgins dunk in the final minute drew the Knights back to just eight at the break. Bard made seven of its first 10 3-pointers in the first half, but missed its next six to end the half. Clarkson made only two of its 13 3-point field goal attempts in the first 20 minutes and shot only 9-for-31 overall, with Higgins going 5-for-10 and the rest of the team struggling at a rate of 4-for-21. The Raptors continued to hold the advantage at the start of the second half, but Clarkson quietly snuck back into the game, pulling to within a single possession of tying the contest on multiple occasions, including a two-point margin after Malaquias Canery scored his first basket of the game at the 10:32 mark of the second half. Bard had answers on its next few possessions to keep Clarkson at bay, but the Knights finally tied the game up when Matthew Hornak buried a 3-pointer at the 6:46 mark. The Raptors responded with two baskets from Emmanuel Oyakhilome in the next few minutes to regain their advantage. Gary Hanley scored a basket to get the Knights to within two again and less than a minute later Matt Higgins buried another jumper to once again place Clarkson within a single point (52-51). With the Raptors up by one, Alijah Rue picked up a steal and on the ensuing fast break was fouled, allowing Bard to push its lead back up to two thanks to the free throw. However, Clarkson missed four shots on its next possession despite several quality looks. The break finally came through in the last minute when two Bard defenders tripped over one another on a screen, giving Liam Ellis a wide open look from beyond the arc, which the junior guard buried with just 49 seconds to play. Clarkson's lead (54-53) would be short lived, though, as Justyn Rogers converted two free throws only eight seconds later to return the advantage to the Raptors. On Clarkson's next possession, Higgins saw his 3-point attempt rattle in and out, and the Knights were forced to foul, allowing Rogers to make two more freebies to extend Bard's lead back to three. Rogers made two more free throws a few seconds later to put the lead at five and those two shots, along with the final two free throws made by the Raptors, proved to be the difference. Higgins scored a career-high 29 points on 10-for-22 shooting to lead the Knights, but no other Clarkson player finished in double figures. Four of Bard's five starters finished in double figures, led by Justyn Rogers' 15 points.

Joe Lucas finished a seven-point run for Clarkson with a jumper from outside the paint, giving the Golden Knights a 12-5 advantage. Gary Hanley extended Clarkson's lead to 11 points going 2-for-2 from the free throw line. The Golden Knights continued to pull away and amassed a 44-28 lead at halftime. Despite multiple comeback attempts from the Saints, they were unable to hold off Clarksons' high-scoring offense. The Golden Knights shot 46 percent from the field and 50 percent from the arc, landing nine 3-pointers for 42 points in the second half. Matt Higgins led the Golden Knights to their first Liberty League win with 21 points, four rebounds and two blocks. Liam Ellis, Jason Phelps and Hanley all added 11 points for Clarkson. The Scarlet and Brown moved to 3-9 on the season and 1-4 in conference play, while Clarkson improved to 5-7 and 1-4. Up next, the Saints will continue conference play, hosting Ithaca and Union on January 12th and 13th, respectively.

April 29: SUNY Potsdam Athletic Director James Zalacca has announced James Bechtel as the Bears men's basketball program's 10th head coach. Bechtel comes to SUNY Potsdam after building a strong program at SUNY Canton. He has NCAA Division I, II and III experience. "Jim's proven success and experience as a head coach clearly separated him from an otherwise extremely strong pool of candidates," said Zalacca. "He has demonstrated an ability to establish strong relationships not only with his athletes, both current and former, but also with the campus at large. His knowledge of the game is outstanding. His passion for teaching the game and recruiting high caliber student-athletes is unparalleled and his energy and work ethic are infectious. We're thrilled to have Jim join our team and look forward to him beginning his work with our program. " Bechtel spent the last four seasons coaching the Kangaroos, overseeing the program's transition into the Division III ranks. Canton posted a 54-36 record for a .600 winning percentage under his leadership. Bechtel's Roos broke out this season with a 20-4 mark, the most by a Canton team in 30 years. "I'm very honored and humbled to be chosen as the next head men's basketball coach at SUNY Potsdam," Bechtel said. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to lead such a storied program and compete in the SUNYAC conference. I look forward to building a program that the Potsdam community is proud of." Before joining the Kangaroos, Bechtel spent two seasons across town as the assistant coach and strength and conditioning coordinator for St. Lawrence University. With his tutelage, the Saints defense thrived, finishing 2011-12 in the top five for all defensive categories in the Liberty League. Bechtel began his basketball coaching career as the graduate assistant for Division I Coastal Carolina in 2004-05. He spent the next three seasons as an assistant coach and assistant director of summer camps at Susquehanna University. There he helped the Crusaders capture the 2008 Landmark Conference regular season championship. His last stop before the North Country was a two-year stint as the assistant coach for Division II Shepherd University from 2008-10. Bechtel also served as the assistant strength and conditioning coach and an academic counselor at his alma mater Penn State from 2000-2002. With the Nittany Lions he was responsible for monitoring the academic progress of the football and men's basketball teams throughout the year. During his 16-year collegiate coaching career, Bechtel has recruited and coached nine All-Americans, multiple all-conference selections as well as a conference player of the year and rookie of the year. Bechtel earned a bachelor's degree in kinesiology from Penn State in 2000 and a master's in advanced level coaching from Springfield College in 2006.

March 4: The Plattsburgh State men's basketball team saw its season come to an abrupt end at the hands of Fitchburg State on Friday night as the Falcons took down the No. 23 ranked Cardinals 84-81 in the first round of the NCAA Division III Men's Basketball Tournament at Memorial Hall.   The Cardinals committed 19 turnovers on Friday, including three crucial blunders in the game's final two minutes and change.   Needing a three to tie Fitchburg State at the end of regulation and force overtime, Plattsburgh State had nine seconds to work with coming out of a timeout. The Cardinals unfortunately never got a great attempt as Eli Bryant was forced to put up a prayer from way beyond the arc. The shot was no good and Plattsburgh State would not get another chance to tie as time ran out.   After the visiting Falcons registered the first points of the game, the Cardinals quickly took a 3-2 lead thanks to Edward Correa's first of four triples on the evening. Correa was the main reason why Plattsburgh State only trailed one time the rest of the first half as he netted 17 points in shooting 6-of-9 from the floor, including 3-of-6 from three-point range in the opening stanza.   While the Cardinals held the advantage for most of the first, their lead never grew over seven points, as Jaleel Bell kept his team right in the mix.   Bell exploded in the second half with 19 points, going 7-for-10 and a perfect 2-for-2 from long range. The junior finished with a game-high 30 points and tied for a team-high five rebounds.   The end of the first half featured a quick change of momentum as the Falcons blew a chance at taking a lead into halftime by missing a layup with 10 seconds left. Kyle Richardson grabbed the rebound and found Xavier Thomas, who then found Edward Correa for a layup with three seconds left. The Cardinals took a 37-34 lead into the locker room.   Plattsburgh State built on its momentum early in the second as it took a double-digit lead for the first time in the game 3 ½ minutes in. Xavier Thomas found Majestic Grigg underneath the basket for an easy layup to make the score 49-38 in favor of the Cardinals. Grigg had his best game of the season on Friday night as he totaled 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting.   At that point, the Falcons began to find themselves and rattled off a 10-2 run to cut their deficit to just three. Plattsburgh State responded with a layup by freshman Ian Howard, but Bell answered right back with one of his two threes in the second half to make it a two-point game at 13:31.   After Correa starred with 17 points in the first half, Richardson one upped him with 20 in the second, highlighted by a nifty lay-up while getting fouled to put the Cardinals up 59-51 with 12:50 showing on the clock.   The Plattsburgh State offense went cold following that sequence, as the team missed its next four shots as well as a pair of free throws. With just a tick under nine minutes left, an Anthony Muccoli three gave Fitchburg State the lead at 62-61; the Falcons' first lead of the game since the 6:23 mark of the first half. Back-to-back triples from Lance Hill and Jaleel Bell would up the Falcons' lead to 70-65.   Fitchburg State got to the foul line 18 times in the second half, and made Plattsburgh State pay by making 15 of those 18 attempts.   The Memorial Hall crowed needed something to get them going, and Richardson provided a spark by hitting a three with 4:12 left that got the Cardinals to within four points at 78-74. Following a pair of missed jumpers on the other end, sandwiched by two Richardson free throws, Eli Bryant sunk a triple to give Plattsburgh State a 79-78 lead.   From the point on however, the Cardinals shot just 1-for-5 and turned the ball over three times. The Falcons meanwhile went 4-for-5 from the free throw line and got a big layup from Bell with just over a minute left to give them an 82-79 lead.   Instead of going for a quick score down by three now with 30 seconds remaining, the Cardinals took over 20 seconds to complete their possession, which culminated with a Richardson layup to make the score 82-81 in favor of Fitchburg State. Plattsburgh State was now forced to immediately foul and hope a few missed free throws would benefit them.   Unfortunately, Josh Bosworth made both attempts from the charity stripe make it a three-point game.   Instead of fouling Plattsburgh State, Fitchburg State came up with a big defensive stop to close out the game and advance, as the Cardinals never got a great look from three.   Both senior Richardson and Correa shined in the final games in Cardinal uniforms. Richardson finished with 26 points to go along with 15 rebounds while Correa totaled 20 points and had six boards.   Bell's 30 points led the Falcons, who were also helped out by Lance Hill's 17 points and five rebounds.   Fitchburg State advances to the second round and will face Johnson & Wales University, who knocked of Trinity College 75-73 in the first game at Memorial Hall Friday night. Saturday's second round matchup is set for a 7 p.m. start time.   The Cardinals close out their season with back-to-back losses and finish with a 21-6 record. The team accomplished much more than anyone expected, and has much to look forward to in 2016-17 despite losing three key players in Kyle Richardson, Edward Correa, and Xavier Thomas.

Jan. 9: An overwhelming advantage on the glass for St. Lawrence limited second chances for the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team as the Golden Knights dropped a 73-57 decision against the Saints on Tuesday night at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights saw their record evened at 6-6 overall while moving to 1-4 in the Liberty League. St. Lawrence edged over .500 in conference at 3-2 and improved to 8-4 on the season. Senior Devin Sorell poured in a season-high 31 points, her fifth career 30-point game and first of 2017-18. Sorell shot 11-for-27 from the field and also added in four assists and three steals for the Knights. A solid shooting performance in the early going mitigated the size advantage possessed by St. Lawrence, as Clarkson rushed out to a 13-4 lead following Molly Stewart's 3-pointer from the wing at 4:15 in the first quarter. After Sorell sunk three consecutive free throws at the 2:12 mark, the Knights were up by 12, a lead that they would hold at the end of the quarter as well when Sorell hit a layup in the waning seconds. Things began to change course in the second quarter as St. Lawrence began to pound the ball inside. Even when the shots didn't fall for St. Lawrence, the Saints were able to get offensive rebounds for second chance opportunities. Jenny Scudder hit a 3-pointer at the 2:31 mark to pull St. Lawrence within two, and a pair of free throws from Annabella Pugliese with 27 seconds left in the quarter knotted the game up at 28-28 at the break. With several key Clarkson players in foul trouble in the third, St. Lawrence got things going in the paint, making 10 layups in that period alone. Sorell did her best to keep the Knights in the game, scoring 11 of Clarkson's 17 points in the quarter, but in the fourth quarter St. Lawrence stuck to its game plan, pounding the ball inside and simply outrebounding Clarkson at every turn. The Knights trailed by seven with eight minutes to go in the quarter, but the Saints started hitting short range jumpers in addition to their points from the block, slowly extending the advantage to double figures and finishing with a 16-point margin of victory. Sorell had a game-high 31 points for Clarkson and freshman Hannah Earl chipped in 10 points and eight rebounds in her best game of the season. The Saints were keyed by a 51-23 advantage on the glass, headlined by the double-double from Katie Frederick, who scored 13 points and grabbed 13 boards. Annabella Pugliese added 12 points and Meghan O'Connor produced 10 points and eight rebounds, including seven offensive boards. Meghan Hynes also tacked on 12 points for St. Lawrence.

Jan. 6: Twenty straight points in a little over four minutes during the first quarter by the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team was all the cushion the Golden Knights would need as they cruised to a 79-41 Liberty League win over Bard College on Saturday afternoon. The Golden Knights picked up their first conference victory of the season and moved back above .500 overall, improving to 6-5 and 1-3. The Raptors remained winless at 0-10 and 0-4. Clarkson begins a seven-game home stretch on Tuesday when it takes on St. Lawrence University. With a season-high 27 points in the first quarter, Clarkson recovered from a tough loss against Vassar on Friday. The Golden Knights were up 7-4 midway through the first quarter, but a 20-0 run in 4:27 seconds that included four 3-pointers quickly provided Clarkson with ample breathing room for the remainder of the game. The Knights were particularly formidable on defense, forcing 16 turnovers in the first half and converting those chances with 21 points at the other end. Both Madison Shea and Devin Sorell scored 15 points in the first half. Bard shot just 2-for-23 in the first half, including 18 straight misses from the field over the last 16-plus minutes. After Clarkson extended its lead to as many as 42 points in the early moments of the second half, the Golden Knights' starters were pulled for the final 18 minutes of the game. Allowed an opportunity to show their merit, the bench players finished the game with 35 points overall. Shea finished with 15 points on 7-for-9 shooting in just 17 minutes, adding in 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals. Sorell also had 15 points, going 6-for-11 from the floor with three 3-pointers in 18 minutes, while also contributing 5 assists and 4 steals. Tricia Loso scored 11 points on 4-for-7 shooting in 18 minutes of reserve, while both Molly Stewart and Rachel Marion scored eight points each. Marion also had a team-best seven rebounds. For Bard, Katie Esposito had 13 points and 11 rebounds, while Sarah Morris was just shy of matching her teammate's double-double thanks to nine points and 10 boards.

Jan. 9: First-year Katie Frederick recorded her third double-double of the season, shooting 6-for-10 from the field, and the St. Lawrence University women's basketball team overcame a first-quarter deficit to defeat Clarkson 73-57 in a Liberty League contest Tuesday evening in Potsdam, New York. Prior to tonight's game, St. Lawrence ranks ninth in the nation for scoring defense, only allowing 44.6 points per game. With the win, the Saints improved to 8-4 on the season and 3-2 in conference play, while Clarkson fell to 6-6 and 1-4. Second to Frederick, Annabella Pugliese and Meghan Hynes each added 12 points, while Meghan O'Connor scored 10. Marlee Gunn posted a team-high six assists and two steals. The Golden Knights outshot the Saints 23-11 in the first quarter, averaging 58 percent from the field and Devin Sorell accounting for 13 points of the teams' points. The Saints worked to make up ground in the second quarter holding Clarkson to just five points. Jenny Scudder landed a 3-pointer to bring the Saints within two with 2:31 remaining. Pugliese drew the late foul, went 2-for-2 from the line to tie the game at 28. The Scarlet and Brown went on an 11-point run to end the second frame with baskets from Katie Gallagher, O'Connor and Scudder. Both team's nearly battled point-for-point in the third frame, however the Saints held a slight four-point advantage with 5:20 to play. Cara Waterson netted back-to-back buckets to extend the Saints' lead to 50-43. O'Connor landed a jumper from just outside the paint to put the Scarlet and Brown up by nice with less than eight minutes to play in regulation. St. Lawrence held a 12-point lead after a jump shot from Pugliese with just under four minutes to play and capped its six-point run with a jumper from Kaelyn Kohlasch. Kohlasch then extended the Saints lead to 16 points with about two minutes remaining. "It was a really nice game for us tonight," said head coach Dan Roiger. "We had a really slow start, I think the team wanted to win so badly they weren't able to relax. Meanwhile, Clarkson was red hot and had a great start." "We had an awesome second half," Roiger continued. "We ran well, we passed well and we pounded the ball inside to our posts, who finished at the rim. Overall, it was a nice win and our team continues to learn about their strengths and what we do best." Sorell shot 11-for-27 from the floor and 2-for-7 from the arc to lead the Golden Knights with season-high 31 points, four assists and three steals. Hannah Earl added 10 points and a team-high eight rebounds, while Madison Shea rounded out the top three scorers with seven points.

Jan. 6: Meghan Hynes led the Saints for the second day in a row with 14 points and first-year Marlee Gunn netted a season-high 13 points as the St. Lawrence University women's basketball team successfully completed their first undefeated conference weekend of the season, topping Vassar 55-47 on Saturday afternoon in Poughkeepsie, New York.   Hynes and Gunn also combined for 10 rebounds, grabbing six and four, respectively. Kaelyn Kohlasch recorded nine points and eight rebounds, while Katie Frederick added eight points and three rebounds. Kohlasch also posted a team and season-high three steals. Both teams nearly battled point-for-point through the first five minutes of play. The Saints then quickly added a four-point run, followed up by another six points to take an 18-10 lead over the Brewers. Vassar ended the first quarter with a six-point run of its own, only trailing by two points after the first ten minutes. Julia Roellke quickly tied the game at 18 with a layup at the 9:28 mark of the second quarter. After three lead changes, Nicole Teta landed a 3-pointer to give the Brewers a 32-26 advantage. Vassar continued to hold the lead up until the break, with a 35-28 lead over the Scarlet and Brown at half time. The Saints outshot Vassar 15-2 in the third quarter to regain the lead and bring a six-point advantage into the final frame. Sophie Nick tallied the only basket for the Brewers in the third, while Frederick, Hynes, Jenny Scudder and Cara Waterson each picked up points for the Saints. The Brewers wouldn't go down without a fight, coming within two points with a 3-pointer from Nick with about six minutes to play. Kohlasch, who currently leads the Liberty League with .481 3-point shooting percentage and 2.5 3-pointers per game, responded with a 3-pointer of her own to put the Saints up by five with 4:46 to play.   A late foul off Scudder, gave the Brewers the chance to make it a one-possession, but Vassar couldn't capitalize on the free throw and a series of free throws from Marlee Gunn down the stretch would seal the victory for the Saints. "This is a big win for us," said head coach Dan Roiger. "Vassar is a good, veteran team that has been seasoned by a tough schedule. For us to go on the road with our young squad and get a victory is a real credit to our perseverance and work ethic." "Our defense and rebounding were outstanding in the second half after a rough second quarter," Roiger continued. "Our players made some great adjustments at halftime and executed our game plan very well. Our whole team played well, but our posts really did a great job on some good players." Vassar was led by Samarah Cook and Roellke with nine points each, while Teta, Nick and Ariella Rosenthal each netted seven. Roellke finished with a team-high seven rebounds. Nick and Rosenthal each grabbed five. Cook and Roellke each added two steals for the Brewers. With the win, the Saints wrapped up their first 2-0 weekend in conference play and earned their first win over the Brewers since the 2015-16 season. After today's result, both teams move to 7-4 on the season and 2-2 in Liberty League play.

With three minutes and 15 seconds remaining in the game the St. Lawrence University women's basketball team held an eight point lead over SUNY Plattsburgh but the Cardinals scored 16 of the final 18 points of the game to escape with a 56-50 victory Tuesday night in a non-conference matchup in Burkman Gymnasium in Canton.
Senior guard Jax Miller (Argyle, N.Y./Argyle) hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 38 seconds remaining, leading the Plattsburgh State women's basketball team to a 56-50 victory over non-conference St. Lawrence University on Tuesday night at Burkman Gym.
After freshman forward Taylor Clare (Peekskill, N.Y./Peekskill) tied the score at 38-all with 8:52 left in regulation, St. Lawrence went on an 8-0 run, and a 3-pointer by senior forward Caroline Dalton handed the Saints a 46-38 advantage. The two teams traded points until Clare made four free throws across two possessions to make it a four-point game. Sophomore guard Bella DePasquale (Ardsley, N.Y./Ardsley) drained a 3-pointer with 1:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, and following a 30-second Plattsburgh State timeout, the Cardinals forced a Saint turnover.
That set the stage for Miller's heroics, as she converted on a 3-point attempt with just 38 seconds left to hand Plattsburgh State a 50-48 edge, its first lead of the fourth quarter. The Saints missed a layup with 19 seconds left, which then forced them to foul the rest of the contest. Senior guard Moe Jones (Freeport, N.Y./Freeport) went 4-of-4 from the line before Miller spelled the final score with a pair of made free throws with just two seconds left in regulation.
Sarah Thomas and Caroline Dalton led the Saints (0-3) with nine points each and Dalton led the team with 11 rebounds. The Cardinals (2-2) had three players score in double figures with Monique Jones leading the team with 15 points.

More of the Latest Plattsburgh Women's Basketball Stories

Nov. 19: Down by just two points with just six seconds remaining, the Plattsburgh State women's basketball team was dealt a crippling blow by an ill-timed turnover before the Cardinals saw a last-second three-ball by Stephanie Linder bounce off the iron in a 60-58 non-conference setback to Norwich University in Memorial Hall on Wednesday night. Outside of the final 6:22, the Cardinals (1-2) trailed the Cadets (2-1) just once – for a period of 1:22 in the first half to be exact. Neither team shot particularly well from the field, as the Cardinals (19-of-63, 30.2-percent) edged out the Cadets (18-of-60, 30-percent) in that category. In addition to losing the battle on the scoreboard, though, Plattsburgh State was out-rebounded by a 52-41 margin by their Vermont rivals. Of Norwich's final 13 points in the non-conference battle, all but three were scored from the charity stripe and each marker save four through that stretch was pumped in by the Cadets' Aliah Curry who finished with a game-high 23 points. Curry would open the scoring with a painted area jumper, but Brittany Marshall and Jax Miller banged back-to-back long balls to put a charge into the Plattsburgh State faithful and give the home squad a 6-2 lead 2:22 into things. Trouble reared its head early on for the Cardinals in the form of the official's whistle as junior post player Devona Paul was hit with a pair of personal fouls in the first 4:20 of the ballgame. Minutes later, sophomore Jessica Dolan received two citations for fouls which left Plattsburgh State with little choice but to try and formulate an effective game plan from outside the key to secure the win. It appeared as though the scheme was working when the Cardinals opened up a 15-8 edge with 7:41 remaining in the opening stanza. An 8-0 run which culminated with a mid-range splashdown from Jax Miller was all the offense Plattsburgh State could muster for 4:19, though. Their lead dwindling down to a mere two points after a Tory Kethro jumper and a three-point hit from Shyann Josler, the Cardinals called on Allie Taylor – who was making her first start at an NCAA institution – to right the ship. The junior out of Hannibal, N.Y., accounted for the next six points for Plattsburgh State and helped the home squad close out the half on a 9-6 surge. Heading into the last 20-minute period of the night, the Cardinals felt as though their luck had begun to change for the better. Although Kayla Mercer slung in five points for the Cadets, Plattsburgh State pushed right back and pushed its edge to eight points (34-26) on the strength of a downtown swish by Marshall. Norwich, though, continued to resist the Plattsburgh State scoring onslaught and trimmed the Cardinals' advantage to one on four occasions before the Cadets retook the lead for the first time since 13:05 in the first half. Mercer drilled a step-back three-pointer with 6:21 to go, setting up a frantic fight to the finish for both clubs. The vast majority of the action during the final stages of the game occurred from the foul stripe, but Plattsburgh State freshman Shawna Thornton plundered the rock from Curry and sunk a fast-break layup to knot things at 47-all as 5:45 shone on the clock. With that, though, Plattsburgh State found itself almost unable to buy a basket. The Cardinals finished the game with a 1-for-6 showing from the field and committed six turnovers in the closing minutes. Facing a 54-49 deficit with 2:36 to go, the Cardinals stormed back to take the lead by employing a 7-0 run which was cued by a Misha Green jumper in the paint. Green, a senior, put the finishing touches on the surge with a make at the free throw line to put the Cardinals up 56-54 with 46 ticks to go. Mercer, though, played the role of the hero for the Cadets on the ensuing possession. Her three-point attempt with 31 seconds remaining was right on target, and after a highly questionable turnover call by the officials on the next Plattsburgh State trip down the floor, Curry hit three free throws in the final 18 seconds to close things out. The Cardinals hit 16 of their 20 attempts at the charity stripe (80-percent), but were a woeful 4-of-22 (18.2-percent) from long range. Marshall recorded a team-high 15 points for the Cardinals while Taylor added 12. Linder put forth a well-rounded effort of nine points, seven rebounds, three steals and two assists in the loss. Mercer added 15 for the Cadets while Heather LeBlanc pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds. The road beckons to the Cardinals once again, but not before Plattsburgh State takes a basketball hiatus of nearly two weeks. On Tuesday, Dec. 2, the Cardinals will see how they stack up against Liberty League and North Country nemesis St. Lawrence University. Tip-off in Canton, N.Y., is scheduled for 6 p.m. 

Nov. 16: Going toe-to-toe with its first of three top-25 opponents of the 2014-15 campaign, the Plattsburgh State women's basketball team traded blows with No. 15/17 ranked New York University before succumbing to a large second-half run by the Violets and dropping an 86-70 decision in the championship game of the NYU Tip-Off Tournament on Sunday afternoon at the Coles Sports Center. Doing all she could to help the Cardinals in their quest for a 2-0 start was senior Brittany Marshall who finished with a game-high 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting. As a team, the Cardinals shot the ball at a 40.3 percent (27-of-67) clip, but the depth and experience of the Violets eventually wore Plattsburgh State down. Instead of trying to force the issue down low against NYU's interior defenders, Plattsburgh State took up residence from beyond the three-point arc and thrived from there early on. The Violets netted the first two markers of the game, but Marshall and junior Stephanie Linder canned back-to-back long balls which gave Plattsburgh State a 6-2 lead just 2:07 into the non-conference fight. NYU managed to tie things up with a 4-0 burst, but fortunately for the Cardinals, Allie Taylor picked up right where she left off the previous afternoon and launched a 6-0 Plattsburgh State run with a layup. Marshall followed suit with one of her own before sophomore Jessica Dolan took a pinpoint pass from Taylor and connected on a fast-break jumper. With an upset bid fresh in their minds, the Cardinals kept the pedal to the metal. Taylor netted four more points before Devona Paul cleaned up a Dolan misfire and laid the ball in to put the Cardinals up 18-10. First-year player Shawna Thornton showed up with a three-point splashdown before sophomore Jax Miller pulled up from midrange and swished a jumper of her own. Miller's hit handed the Cardinals their largest lead of the game, 23-12, with 9:31 to go in the opening frame. Unbeknownst to the Cardinals, NYU was plotting a comeback and employed the first stages of its plan to regain the lead by using the three-point shot. Amy Harioka set up shop from downtown and knocked down consecutive trifectas to kick-start a 17-0 NYU run. The Cardinals couldn't keep up with the Violets during that stretch, going 0-fot-6 from the field and committing four turnovers. Emily Rowe sank a layup with 6:07 remaining in the first half which put NYU on top for good. Forced to watch as the Violets' edge grow to as many as six points, Plattsburgh State finally put a halt to the sizable scoring burst when Taylor took a trip to the charity stripe and knocked down a pair of attempts. Their offense finally coming around after a lengthy break, the Cardinals chipped away at the Violets' lead, eventually shrinking it all the way down to one when Thornton split a pair of free throws as the clock showed 1:31. That was as close as the Cardinals would come, though, as NYU pumped in five of the last six points in the opening stanza to take a 38-33 edge into the halftime break. Marshall represented two-thirds of the Cardinals total offensive output in the first 3:10 of the deciding frame. The Malone, N.Y., product rattled home a pair of mid-range jumpers to pull Plattsburgh State within one – 40-39 – for the final time. From there, the Violets seized control of matters by employing a 10-0 run which featured scores from a trio of players. Marshall and Paul combined for the next seven Plattsburgh State points to keep the Cardinals within shouting distance (54-46), but the balance and dominant interior game of the Violets continued to keep the visitors off-balance. A 46-24 edge in points in the paint belonged to the nationally-ranked home squad who increased its lead to as many as 19 by the time the final horn sounded. Megan Dawe amassed a team-high 19 points for the Violets to lead a quintet of NYU players who finished with 10 or more markers. Kaitlyn Read added a 13-point, 11-rebound double-double for the home squad who shot 47.7 percent (31-of-65) from the field including a scorching 17-of-28 (60.7 percent) mark in the final frame. Taylor finished with 14 points in another excellent outing for the Cardinals while Paul chipped in 11 and a team-best eight rebounds.
