2/24/15 – Wildcats Tip Monks in GNAC Quarterfinal, 70-62

Providence, R.I. –The third seeded Johnson & Wales University women’s basketball team knocked off sixth seeded St. Joseph’s of Maine, 70-62 in the quarterfinals of the 2015 Great Northeast Athletic Conference Championship at the Wildcat Center on Tuesday evening.

Johnson & Wales was led by freshman Ashley Thompson (Bellingham, Mass.) with 19 points and five rebounds while sophomore Bobbie Whitehead (Brooklyn, N.Y.) picked up her ninth double-double of the season with 18 points and 13 rebounds. Freshman Raquel Pederzani (Coventry, R.I.) tallied 12 points with three assists while junior Savannah Kresge (Ellington, Conn.) came off the bench to score 14 points in the win for the Wildcats.

Junior Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Mass.) paced St. Joseph’s of Maine with a game-high 29 points and six rebounds while freshman Norma Waggett (Saugus, Mass.) was also in double-figures with 12 points and five boards in the setback for the Monks.
The first half saw Johnson & Wales control the action early and took their largest lead of the game when a three-pointer by Pederzani with 7:29 left in the first half made the score 32-14. Eight straight points from the visitors capped off by a free throw by Abbie Eastman (Norway, Maine) cut the lead to 32-22 with 2:37 remaining in the half. A three pointer by Kresge brought the Wildcats to a 37-24 advantage before back-to-back jumpers by Waggett and Cahill closed out the half for the Monks. JWU held the 37-28 advantage after the first stanza and were outshooting the Monks 58% to 38% in the half.
The host Wildcats took a 10-point advantage twice in the opening five minutes of the first half including a 45-35 lead on a made free throw by Whitehead.

St. Joseph’s used consecutive lay-ins by Brianna Holdren (Portland, Maine) with 10:33 remaining to bring the JWU lead to just one, 50-49. Five consecutive free throws by the Wildcats extended the lead back to ten, 63-53 with under five minutes remaining in the contest. A last ditch effort by SJC reduced the lead back to three before the Wildcats connected on 7-of-8 from the line in the final minute to secure the 70-62 win.

With the victory Johnson & Wales is now 17-9 for the season while Saint Joseph’s finishes with a 16-10 mark. Johnson & Wales will return to action on Thursday, February 26th when they travel to No. 2 seed Norwich for the semifinals of the GNAC Championship starting at 7:00 p.m.

3/3/15 – Assante & Cahill Garner Second Team All-GNAC Accolades

STANDISH, Maine – The 2015 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Women’s Basketball postseason accolades have been released and two Saint Joseph’s College players have been honored.

Senior point guard Sarah Assante (Standish, Maine) and junior center Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) have both collected Second Team All-GNAC honors.

Assante enjoyed her best season as a senior, averaging 8.6 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.1 steals per game while starting all 26 of the Monks’ contests this winter. The two-year team captain ranked second in the conference in assists (119), and third in steals (56) and assist/turnover ratio (1.7) and finished the year ranked second on the team in scoring, rebounding and points (223). Her 2014-15 assist total is the most by an SJC player since Stacey Gelinas ’02 dealt 136 dimes during the 2001-02 campaign.

Assante capped her NCAA career having scored 557 points with 354 rebounds, 295 assists and 179 steals over 108 contests. She is just the third player in team history to tally at least 500 points, 350 rebounds and 250 assists in their collegiate career.

The four-year contributor leaves the program ranked 11th in program history in both assists and steals. The All-Conference honor is the first of Assante’s career.

Cahill, the 2013 GNAC Rookie of the Year, claims Second Team All-GNAC honors for the third-consecutive season after leading the Monks in scoring (16.4 PPG), rebounding (7.6 RPG), blocked shots (39), field goals made (156), field goal percentage (.436), free throws made (97) and free throw percentage (.735). She finished her junior year ranked second in the GNAC in rejections, fifth in field goals made, sixth in both scoring and points (409), and eighth in free throws made.

Cahill, who became the 22nd member of the Monks’ 1,000-Point Club during the season and is just the sixth SJC player to reach the mark as a junior, finished her third collegiate season with totals of 1,211 points, 638 rebounds, 159 blocks, 83 assists and 79 steals. She established career-highs in free throws made, free throw percentage, steals and PPG average in 2014-15.

The 2014-15 team co-captain already ranks among the Monks’ all-time leaders in field goals made (10th) and attempted (12th), free throws made (10th) and attempted (8th), points (9th), scoring average (7th), rebounds (11th), rebounding average (7.9) and blocked shots (2nd).

Saint Joseph’s College, led by 22nd-year Head Coach Mike McDevitt ’83, posted a 16-10 overall record with a 6-5 mark in GNAC play en route to earning the #6 seed in the GNAC Tournament. The team’s season, and bid to repeat as conference champions, came to an end with a 70-62 tournament quarterfinal loss at the hands of #3 Johnson & Wales University, the eventual GNAC champs, on February 26th.
