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.

More of the Latest Plattsburgh Men's Basketball Stories

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.

Feb. 27: The No. 21 ranked and top seeded Plattsburgh State men's basketball team was taken down by Oswego State 81-74 on Friday night in the SUNYAC semifinal round in front of crowd of over 800 inside Memorial Hall on Friday night.   The Lakers get a win over the Cardinals for the second straight season in the SUNYAC playoffs inside Memorial Hall. Much like the last two times he's played on Plattsburgh State's home floor, Oswego State junior guard Brian Sortino stood out among all players, as he registered a game-high 29 points on 8-of-13 (61.5-percent) shooting, including 3-for-5 from downtown and 10-of-13 from the free throw line.   Senior Kyle Richardson led Plattsburgh State with 25 points to go along with eight boards. Richardson shot an even 50-percent, going 10-for-20 with two of his baskets coming from three-point range.   First-year player Chris Middleton logged a career-high 20 minutes in Friday's game, and posted his first 10-plus point effort of his collegiate career. The New York, N.Y., product notched 12 points, shooting a perfect 4-for-4 from the field. Middleton's first-year teammates Eli Bryant and Jonathan Patron each finished with 11 points.   The Lakers got off to a hot start, quieting down the raucous Memorial Hall crowd by jumping out to an 11-3 lead, fueled by a hot shooting start from Kyle Covley. The senior nailed two triples in the first four minutes of action.   Plattsburgh State would respond with a 10-2 run, tying the game up at 13 apiece as things neared six minutes into the contest. Jonathan Patron had the touch from long range going as he sank back-to-back three-pointers.   Patron continued to produce for the Cardinals, converting on an old-fashioned three-point play with 12:24 left in the first half, giving Plattsburgh State its first lead of the night at 18-15. That, however would be the last time the Huntington, N.Y., product put points on the board.   The Cardinals' lead grew to 24-19 after Bryant drained a step back triple. The home team would remain on top for the next two minutes of play.   Plattsburgh State had trouble finishing in the paint in the first half, mostly due to Oswego State's Mykelle Krecko. The 6-10 transfer junior had an eye-popping six rejections in just the opening stanza.   Having made a whopping 18 three-pointers just two weeks ago inside Memorial Hall, the Lakers stayed hot from long range on Friday night, hitting 7-of-15 attempts in the first half. Three different Lakers had two each, while Demetrius Mitchell made his only attempt of the half.   The Lakers took a chunk of the momentum heading into halftime by getting a pair of triples from Dustin Pond and Sortino to erase a three-point deficit and gain a three-point advantage. Oswego State would end up leading by just two at the break, 39-37.   Much like they had to start the game, the Lakers got off to a great shooting start at the beginning of the second half, extending their lead to seven after an Alex Rawa three.   Things looked grim when Patron landed awkwardly after a missed floater while driving towards the hoop in transition. Patron was helped off the court and did not return the rest of the game.   Richardson however took it upon himself to jump start another Cardinal comeback, driving to the hoop for a pair of layups. Just prior to four minutes into the second, a beautiful Chris Middleton layup and free throw was overshadowed by Plattsburgh State's bench receiving a technical foul. Despite Sortino missing one of the two free throws, the Lakers kept a two-possession advantage.   Memorial Hall got as loud as it's been all season after an Xavier Thomas put back dunk following a missed Bryant jumper, cutting the deficit to 52-50. Plattsburgh State followed that up with a three from Middleton, giving the crowd much to be excited about as the Cardinals took the lead back, 53-52.   The Lakers, though never struggled in answering back, as a Rawa three and layup from Pond put them right back in front by four.   Sortino would take over the game over the game final six minutes, as he scored 11 points and got to the foul line on several occasions. Up 69-68 with just over four minutes left, Sortino sank one of his three treys on the evening. Kyle Covley would then find Keith Tyson underneath the hoop for an easy lay in the give the Lakers a six-point advantage with 3:17 left.   Richardson brought the Cardinals to within three points with a triple with exactly three minutes remaining, but Sortino would account for all of Oswego State's final six points. Following a stretch of two minutes without a basket, Sortino broke the ice with a layup to give the Lakers a 76-71 lead with 1:02 left.   The Cardinals were unable to score on their ensuing possession, and from then on, Sortino made five of six free throw attempts to secure the win for the No. 4 seeded Lakers.   Oswego State moves on to the SUNYAC title game for the second straight season. Saturday at 4 p.m., the Lakers will take on No. 2 seeded SUNY Cortland, the only SUNYAC team they have yet to beat this season. The Red Dragons slipped by No. 3 seeded Brockport by an 80-78 score in the first semifinal game on Friday night.

Jan. 12: Junior Conrad Zampier scored a career-high 29 points for the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team on Tuesday night, but it was Drew Zlogar's free throws in the final minute that helped preserve a 74-72 win over St. Lawrence in Liberty League action at Alumni Gymnasium. The Golden Knights improved to 6-8 overall and 3-2 in the Liberty League, while St. Lawrence suffered its first conference defeat and fell to 6-5 and 2-1. Clarkson will close out a five-game homestand this weekend when it hosts RIT and Hobart. Clarkson scored nine of the first 11 points through the opening five minutes and held a 12-4 lead early in the first half as Zampier was making his shots in the early going. St. Lawrence, however, went on a 12-0 run in less than three minutes midway through the half, turning a six-point deficit (23-17) into a six-point lead (29-23). A 3-pointer from Riley Naclerio pushed the Saints' advantage to nine points, something that would be repeated two more times in the half, but Zampier buried a 3-pointer on Clarkson's final possession to pull the Knights back to within six at the break (40-34). The Saints held on to their lead in the first few moments of the second half, and led by five points before Clarkson ran off seven straight, capped off by a Zlogar 3-pointer with 11:39 to go in the game. Though St. Lawrence would come back to tie the game on two occasions, the Knights would never trail again. Felix Abongo converted a lay up and free throw to spark a 10-0 run, again finished off by a Zlogar 3-pointer with 7:13 to go, but St. Lawrence coach Chris Downs changed tactics and put the Saints into an extended zone to keep the Knights off balance. The strategy worked for a while as St. Lawrence was able to rally back to within one on three separate occasions. However, Zlogar made three of his four free throws in the waning seconds to allow Clarkson to keep its modest lead. Kaleb Faison had a good look from beyond the 3-point arc with about four seconds to go, but the shot drifted right, giving the Knights their sixth straight win over St. Lawrence. Zampier's 29 points tied for the most points by a Clarkson player against St. Lawrence (Felix Abongo had 29 in 2013-14) in the past 14 years, falling five points short of the Golden Knights' record versus the Saints in the shot clock era (34 by Steve Vega, 2001-02). Zampier shot 10-for-15 overall and 5-for-8 from beyond the 3-point arc in 37 minutes. Felix Abongo finished with 16 points and nine rebounds and Zlogar came off the bench to produce 14 points in 21 minutes. For St. Lawrence, Riley Naclerio had 17 points, going 7-for-12 from the field, to go along with eight boards and three steals. Willie Zachery proved a sparkplug off the bench scoring 17 points on 6-for-8 shooting and dishing out four assists. Ben Crawford also added nine points for the Saints. 

Nov. 20: Senior Felix Abongo hit a mid-range runner in the lane late in the second half to score his 1000th career point as a member of the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team, but his effort wasn't enough to help the Golden Knights pick up their first win of the season as the team fell to SUNY Canton 62-46 in the North Country Invitational opener. The Golden Knights fell to 0-3 on the season and will face either SUNYIT or Potsdam State at 1:00 pm on Saturday. SUNY Canton will take on the winner of the aforementioned game at 3:00 pm. Clarkson jumped out to a 5-2 lead in the first minute, but SUNY Canton scored nine of the next 11 points in the following three points and never relinquished the lead. Clarkson was within one point a few minutes later (15-14), but the Kangaroos slowly added to their advantage in the next 14 minutes, eventually pushing the margin to 11 points. The Knights offense scored 12 points in the final 14 minutes of the first half, but intermission didn't get things going in the second half. A lay up by Conrad Zampier at the 16:27 mark was the only basket that the Knights got in the first seven minutes of the second half until Derek Hart converted a short shot at 12:21. By that point, the Roos were up by 17 and a few moments later extended their lead to 21. Clarkson would find a bit of a rhythm in the waning moments and chipped the deficit down to 16 points, but could get no closer. Abongo finished with 12 points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals while Derek Hart added 15 points, shooting 7-for-14 from the floor, five rebounds and three blocks. Jeremy Liss also tossed in nine points, going 3-for-3 from the floor and 3-for-4 from the free throw line, with six boards, two assists and two steals. For SUNY Canton, Sam Annorh had a team-best 15 points to go along with seven boards and four assists. Romario Fletcher also produced 11 points and seven boards and Khalil Bratton contributed 10 points on 5-for-8 shooting.

The last second shot was just off the mark ending the game and snapping the five-game win streak for the Saints.  Naclerio and Zachery led St. Lawrence with 17 points each and Naclerio led the squad with eight rebounds.  The Saints will return to action Friday and Saturday with games against Hobart at 8 pm Friday and RIT at 4 pm Saturday at Burkman Gymnasium in Canton.

Kaleb Faison led the team with six rebounds and Adams had five.  The Saints will hit the road for the first time this season playing in the Medaille College Tournament in Buffalo over the weekend. St. Lawrence will face host Medaille at 5 pm Friday night and then play eight Baldwin Wallace or Middlebury Saturday at either 1 or 3 pm. Print Friendly Version

April 29: SUNY Potsdam Director of Athletics James Zalacca has announced that Brittany Cohen, former SUNY Cortland standout and granddaughter of Bears Hall of Famer Stan Cohen, will be the new head coach of the women's basketball program.   "Her success as a player within the SUNYAC combined with her overall knowledge of our conference and ability to establish positive relationships quickly moved her to the top of an extremely talented applicant pool", said Zalacca. "Her youthful exuberance and work ethic honed during her experience in both the college and professional game should lend itself well to reestablishing our basketball program. The Cohen legacy has always commanded respect and admiration within our area and state. Grandpa Stan is sure to be smiling proudly. We're thrilled to have Brittany joining our staff and can't wait for her arrival on campus and beginning work with our program."   Cohen, a Fayetteville native, was a two-time SUNYAC Player of the Year and a WBCA Honorable Mention All-American with the Red Dragons. She averaged over 15 points-per-game and nearly six assists-per-game.   After graduating from Cortland in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology, Cohen turned her attention to coaching, where she has experience at nearly all levels of basketball. She spent the 2012-13 season as a graduate assistant for Division II Le Moyne College. The following season Cohen helped guide her alma mater Jamesville-DeWitt High School to the New York State Finals. She served as the top assistant for the Nazareth College women's basketball team during the 2014-15 campaign, helping the Golden Flyers reach the Empire 8 Playoffs for the first time in 14 seasons.   Cohen spent this season in Texas working as the player development intern for Lisbon native Rick Carlisle's Dallas Mavericks of the NBA. With the Mavs, Cohen assisted the coaching staff with practices and workouts and gathered advanced statistics for the team's player development database.   "I am honored and humbled to be named the head women's basketball coach at SUNY Potsdam," Cohen said. "I would like to thank Athletic Director Jim Zalacca, as well as the entire search committee, for giving me this incredible opportunity. This school is a very special place for my family and me. My grandfather coached here and I have been around the community all my life. I am very excited to be coaching in the same league in which I played and most importantly, I am looking forward to working with our student-athletes."   Cohen is nearing the completion of her master's in sport management with a specialization in intercollegiate athletic administration from California University of Pennsylvania.

March 4: With five seconds remaining, Stockton University's Najha Treadwell hit the first of two free throws to give the Ospreys a one-point lead and that modest advantage was enough to hold off the Clarkson University Women's Basketball team as the Golden Knights saw their season come to an end with a 60-59 defeat Friday evening at the Louis Alexander Palestra. The Golden Knights fell to 22-6 overall with the loss while Stockton improved to 22-6. The Ospreys advance to the second round at 7:00 pm on Saturday evening. Nerves clearly were at the forefront in the opening minutes for Clarkson as the team settled for a pair of 3-pointers and turned the ball over in its first five possessions of the game before breaking through with a basket at the 7:40 mark on a layup from Madison Shea. Clarkson's defense was tough in the early going, forcing six turnovers in the first six minutes, but when Stockton was able to get shots off, they went in (4-for-6). That quick start fell apart for the Ospreys in the final four-plus minutes, however, as Stockton made just one of its next seven shots from the field. Despite that less than stellar run, Stockton never trailed in the first quarter because Clarkson couldn't convert either, shooting just 3-for-18 in the first period. The Knights were able to keep the game close by going 4-for-4 from the free throw line. A few turnovers to start the second quarter muted Clarkson's offense, and the Knights missed their first few shots of the quarter. However, some solid interior passing provided some easy looks to tie the score up at 19-19, and a 3-pointer from Ashley Loggins right after the media timeout in the second quarter gave Clarkson its first (22-19). Clarkson held the lead for the majority of the second half, edging out to a three-point advantage on a layup and free throw from Devin Sorell in the final minute. Stockton pulled back to within one in the waning seconds and Loggins last second 3-pointer was short as Clarkson went into the locker room up by one, 29-28. Loggins finished the half with eight points and four rebounds, though she shot just 2-for-11 overall with both of her makes coming from beyond the 3-point line. Sorell tossed in seven points and Shea added six points and three assists. Loggins did a solid job defensively on Stockton's top offensive player, Sasha Williams, holding the 6-foot-2 sophomore to five points on just 2-for-6 shooting, though Williams was able to get seven rebounds, including four on the offensive end. With Clarkson doing a good job of defending Stockton's interior players, it was Lauren Bowler who led the Ospreys in the first half with seven points, her season-high for 2015-16. The senior guard also had three rebounds and three assists in the opening 20 minutes. Devin Sorell scored five quick points at the start of the third to push Clarkson up by three points, but Stockton was able to roll off six straight points on two easy looks inside and a pair of free throws to gain a 41-38 advantage at the 5:20 mark. Stephanie Grobe was whistled for three fouls in the first half and was sent to the bench midway through the second, but it was Madison Shea who got called for her fourth with more than 15 minutes to play, putting the Knights in an inconvenient spot. Without their primary ball handler, the Golden Knights struggled to get much going on offense and turned the ball over against modest pressure near midcourt. Stockton took advantage of the miscues and went on a 7-0 run to expand its lead to eight points (48-40) with 2:14 remaining in the period. The run was finally halted on a mid-range jumper from Grobe. A three-point play gave the Ospreys their biggest lead of the game (51-42) on a layup and free throw, but Loggins responded with a 3-pointer at the other end to keep the Knights within a decent margin. The difference in the third quarter for the Ospreys was their ability to control the glass (15-5 edge in rebounds), eliminating many second-chance opportunities for the Knights. Back in the game, Shea opened the scoring for Clarkson in the fourth quarter, sparking a 6-0 run which tied the game up at 51-51 at the 6:31 mark. Just 45 seconds later, Loggins jumped a passing lane for a steal and was fouled at the other end, making her second free throw to help the Knights regain the lead. It would be short-lived, however, as a turnover by the Knights and a jumper by Najha Treadwell lifted Stockton back up by one. The teams traded the lead back and forth on the next two possessions, but Grobe shredded her way through traffic for a layup to put Clarkson up by one. That was a key make, but the next trip down the court for the Knights proved to be even bigger as Sorell buried a 3-pointer with a player in her face. A two and a half minute scoring drought for Stockton was emphatically ended on a 3-pointer by Taylor Christina to get the Ospreys back within one, and a free throw by Treadwell following her defensive rebound on a Clarkson miss tied the game at 59 with just 35 seconds to go. Loggins missed a jumper on the other end and Alyssia Marsal looked to be in position for a rebound, but was whistled for a foul while seemingly harmlessly boxing a player out on the miss, giving Stockton an opportunity to win the game from the free throw line. Treadwell made the first of her two free throws to give the Ospreys a one-point lead, and Loggins was unable to convert a jumper at the other end, leaving the Clarkson players and their fans dumbfounded by the turn of events. Loggins finished with 18 points, five rebounds and three steals, while Sorell chipped in 15 points and Grobe added 12 points. Shea also produced eight points, six boards, four assists and two steals. Treadwell led Stockton with a double-double on 15 points and 10 rebounds, while Sasha Williams had 11 points, 13 boards and four assists. Stockton held a 46-28 advantage on the glass.

More of the Latest St. Lawrence Women's Basketball Stories

Jan. 12: The St. Lawrence University Women's Basketball team had its worst shooting night of the season making just 30 percent of its shots in a 64-41 loss at Clarkson Tuesday night in a Liberty League matchup in Alumni Gym in Potsdam.  St. Lawrence (8-3 overall, 2-1 Liberty League connected on just 14-of-46 shots from the field and made just one of 14 3-pointers as Clarkson (8-4, 3-2) built a double-digit lead in the first quarter and never looked back.  In the first quarter, the Golden Knights went on a 13-0 run midway through the quarter taking a 5-5 game to an 18-5 advantage and eventually went into the first break with a 22-10 lead.  In the second quarter, Clarkson extended its lead with another big run with a 13-2 streak and opened up a 20-point lead.  Cara Waterson and Sarah Thomas each scored eight points to lead the Saints and Thomas was the high rebounder for St. Lawrence with six rebounds. Lauren Quattrocchi added six points and a team-best four assists.  Waterson had the lone 3-pointer as the Saints were held to their lowest offensive output since scoring 38 points in a 50-38 loss to Williams College on Jan. 5, 2014. The 23-point deficit was te most since losing to Plattsburgh in November of 2013 by an 88-59 score.  The Saints will look to rebound from the loss Friday starting a home Liberty League doubleheader at 6 pm against William Smith. The team will face RIT Saturday at 2 pm and wrap up a six games in nine days run with a 7 pm home game Monday against SUNY Canton.

Jan 9: Caroline Dalton scored 16 points and Ellie Gonyeau added 14 for the St. Lawrence University Women's Basketball team as the Saints scored eight of the last 10 points of the game to post a 72-65 victory over Bard College Saturday afternoon in a Liberty League contest at Burkman Gymnasium in Canton.  Dalton connected on four free throws in the final minutes and Gonyeau added two more in the stretch run for the Saints (8-2 overall, 2-0 Liberty League).  Bard (5-8, 0-4) pulled to within four points at 64-60 with 3:45 left to play in the fourth quarter before Dalton made four consecutive free throws and after Gonyeau blocked a shot Kaelyn Kohlasch made a layup with an assist from Gonyeau to give St. Lawrence a 72-60 lead.  Bard scored 20 seconds later but Kohlasch sealed the win with a steal with 40 seconds remaining.  The Raptors opened the game with a quick lead and held an eight-point advantage in the first five minutes of action before a 3-pointer by Sarah Thomas trimmed the lead back to a point in the closing minute of the first quarter.  St. Lawrence controlled the second quarter and built a lead of nine points near the end of the period on a driving layup by Lauren Quattrocchi and the Saints took a 37-28 lead into the halftime intermission.  The St. Lawrence lead grew to as much as 14 points in the third quarter as Dalton connected on a 3-pointer with 6:06 left in the third to give the Saints a 48-34 advantage. Gonyeau hit a late layup to give St. Lawrence a 58-45 lead after 30 minutes of action.  Bard used a couple small runs in the final quarter to trim the lead before coming to within four points with 3:45 left on the clock before Dalton and Gonyeau connected on their free throws down the stretch. Dalton led the way for St. Lawrence with 16 points including a perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line. Gonyeau added 14 points and was 4-for-4 from the line while Thomas notched a career-high eight points and Jenny Scudder added seven points for the Saints. Scudder, Kohlasch, Cara Waterson and Dalton all had five rebounds each and Kohlasch led the way with five assists.

More of Latest SUNY Canton Women's Basketball Stories

Jan. 22: Brianna Sayer (Hermon, NY) scored a game-high 16 points but turnovers proved costly as the SUNY Canton women's basketball team fell 73-43 to visiting Clarkson University on Friday evening. Clarkson jumped out to a quick 25-8 lead after the opening quarter as the Golden Knights (12-4) turned defense into offense. The Roos (4-11) turned the ball over 26 times in the first half leading to a 27-6 advantage in points off turnovers and the Golden Knights controlled the paint scoring, 20-4. Eleven different players saw action for Clarkson in the first half paced by 11 points from Ashley Loggins. Sayer led nine SUNY Canton players with six points. Both teams' reserves received plenty of minutes in the second half as 23 different players saw action during the contest.

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.
