Women's Basketball 2015-2016: Colby College

Wells named assistant basketball coach

WATERVILLE, Maine — Krystal Wells, an assistant coach at Regis College and an NCAA Division I player at Long Island University, was named assistant coach for the Colby College women’s basketball team Monday.

Wells will work under Colby head coach Julie Veilleux, who led the Mules to a 16-9 record last season. Colby returns four starters and has 10 returning players for the 2015-16 season.

“I am very excited about the future of our program and the strengths and new skills Krystal will bring,” Veilleux said. “I believe her basketball and coaching journey is a successful reflection and example of hard work, passion, and dedication.”

Wells, who earned her master’s degree in her two years at Regis, helped the Pride to two New England Collegiate Conference championships. Regis made two NCAA appearances, had a 45-11 overall record, and was 36-0 in league play.

“Krystal helped contribute to some great success at Regis in a short amount of time,” Veilleux said. “Her personality and leadership will be a wonderful addition for our prospects, players, as well as the Colby and Waterville community.”

Wells was a four-year player at Long Island University and led the Blackbirds to a 69-53 record in her collegiate career. A team captain, she was second in scoring (10.1) and first in 3-point field goal percentage (35) as a senior. Wells, a dean’s list student in all semesters, finished her LIU career with 135 made 3-point shots.

A Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., native, Wells was a three-time team MVP at Douglas County (Ga.) High School. She was her league’s top player in her final two high school seasons.
“Krystal has had the opportunity to live and be a part of many different communities in the last 10 years or so,” Veilleux said. “I am thrilled she chose Colby as her next home. It’s great timing for Colby because we are ambitiously heading toward excellence in all areas of our community.” ... all-coach/

Veteran women’s basketball team ready for season

WATERVILLE, Maine — No team in New England Small College Athletic Conference women’s basketball improved more last year than Colby College.

After going 7-17 overall and 1-9 in the conference in the 2013-14 season, head coach Julie Veilleux and the Mules finished 16-9 and 4-6 in league play last year. With 10 of 12 players returning and a promising first-year class, the Mules have the ability to raise that win total.
“This season our team strives to take another big step forward,” Veilleux said. “We aim to consistently focus on what is in our control, our process goals and mindset along the way. It is nice to have so many weapons returning who have gained a lot of experience the previous year.”
Colby opens the season Friday at 7:30 p.m. against Wesley College on the first night of the Bridgewater State Tournament.
Senior co-captains Carylanne Wolfington (Hallowell, Maine) and Mia Diplock (Vienna, Maine) will lead the Mules. Wolfington earned All-NESCAC Second Team and Maine State First Team honors last year after finishing fifth in the league in points per game (14.6) and third in 3-point field goal percentage (40.0).
“Carylanne has developed into an impressive force in the NESCAC. Her scoring versatility, strength, and quickness makes it a tough challenge for opponents to guard,” Veilleux said. “Her passion and enthusiasm for the sport and her teammates is what makes her a special player to work with.”
Diplock was on the Maine State Second Team after her best season as a Mule. She was 13th in the conference in scoring (12.2) and third in steals (2.1).
“Mia’s captain leadership and abilities on and off the court has been important to our successes,” Veilluex said. “Every year she grows and has developed into an impressive player in the NESCAC on both sides of the floor. Her court vision, smarts, ability to drive, and take the three combined with her defensive instincts make her a complete package.”
Desi Smith (Watertown, Wis.), who missed all of last season due to injury, returns after finishing 10th in the NESCAC in scoring as a sophomore. She also was second in the league in free throw percentage (89.4). Smith went to the foul line often, thanks to her dribbling ability on drives to the basket.
“It is great to have Desi back on the court. Her energy, focus, and court leadership contributes to our special senior class dynamic,” Veilleux said. “What’s impressive and admirable is she hasn’t skipped a beat. Her mid-range shooting ability and her capability to get to the free-throw line will bring a nice balance to our team.”
Colby’s junior class was a key in last year’s improvement. Caitlyn Nolan (Barrington, R.I.) averaged 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, and was eighth in the conference in 3-point shooting (36.0). MaryKate Caverly (Point Pleasant, N.J.) played point guard and was sixth in the league in assists per game (3.1). Lauren Barnhart (Columbus, Ohio), a transfer from Kenyon College, shot 35.7 percent from 3-point range.
Colby was second in the NESCAC in team 3-point field goal percentage (33.9) and was first in the league in attempts (632). The low attempt total in the league last year was 290.
Colby’s inside presence came mostly from 5-foot-11 sophomore Haley Driscoll (Bedford, N.H.), who made the Maine All-Rookie Team. She was fifth in the NESCAC in field goal percentage (50.0), averaged 7.6 points, and 4.2 rebounds.
Sophomores Abby Johnson (Medfield, Mass.), Amanda Loya (Bethel, Conn.), and Cam Kelso (Washington, D.C.) all saw limited time last year and will look for more minutes this year.
First-year 5-10 center Emily Davis (Sudbury, Mass.) will give the Mules more size in the middle. Katie McCrum (Saco, Maine), Sarah Hancock (Casco, Maine), and Jacqueline Albanese (Manhasset, N.Y.) are all guards. Hancock is the daughter of Matt Hancock ’90, a three-time All-American and Colby’s all-time leading scorer (2,678 points) for the men’s basketball program.
“All four of the first-years come from impressive high school or AAU programs,” Veilleux said. “That has allowed their focus and intensity to be on point so far.” ... or-season/

Women’s basketball falls to Division I Maine

BANGOR, Maine — The Colby College women’s basketball team gave a big effort against Division I University of Maine on Tuesday at the Cross Insurance Center, but the Black Bears got off to a quick start on the way to an 82-42 win.

Maine (6-3 overall), who just beat LSU, led 18-0 and opened up a 22-5 lead after the first quarter. The Mules (4-1) did settle down and scored 12 points in the second quarter to trail 47-17 at intermission.
With a major height advantage at all positions, the Black Bears pulled down 25 offensive rebounds and had a 56-23 rebounding advantage. The Mules never stopped playing hard and did force 17 Maine turnovers.
Colby’s Mia Diplock and Carylanne Wolfington both were 3-for-7 from the field and 2-for-5 from 3-point range. Diplock had a team-high nine points and a pair of steals, while Wolfington had eight points and two steals.

Wolfington, Driscoll lead women’s basketball to win

WATERVILLE, Maine — Carylanne Wolfington (Hallowell, Maine) scored with 2.9 seconds remaining and the Colby College women’s basketball team came up with a big defensive play by Haley Driscoll (Bedford, N.H.) to win the Colby Classic with a 66-64 victory over St. Joseph’s College on Sunday at Wadsworth Gymnasium.

The Mules move to 6-1 overall and 6-0 against NCAA Division III opponents. Colby went 2-0 in the three-team Colby Classic. St. Joseph’s fell to 6-2 overall.
The Mules took a 64-59 lead after a jumper by Wolfington with 1:59 to play. The Monks, though, tied the game in a hurry. Kelsi McNamara (West Newbury, Mass.) nailed a 3-point shot with 1:43 remaining and Morgan Cahill (Yarmouth, Maine) hit a jumper with 54 seconds left to tie the contest.
After a Colby turnover, St. Joseph’s missed on a jumper and the Mules called timeout with 4.5 seconds to go. A new women’s basketball rule started this year gives the team calling the timeout the ball at the coaching box line on the other end of the court.
Colby head coach Julie Veilleux designed the play to get Wolfington open underneath the basket. The play worked so well that Mia Diplock’s (Vienna, Maine) pass went directly to Wolfington near the block and she turned and hit the layup.
The new rule helped Colby and it gave St. Joseph’s a final chance with 2.9 seconds to play. The Monks threw it in to Cahill with her back to the basket about 10 feet out. However, the Mules merged on Cahill quickly and Driscoll was able to slap the ball away as time ran out.
Driscoll was 8-for-10 from the field for 17 points, five rebounds, and two assists. Caitlyn Nolan (Barrington, R.I.) was 6-for-9 from the field for 13 points and added four boards. Diplock was 3-for-7 from 3-point range in scoring 12 points and dished four assists, Wolfington scored 11, had three assists and three steals, and Desi Smith (Watertown, Wis.) had eight points.
Cahill had a huge day with 25 points on 11-for-16 shooting and 13 rebounds. McNamara added 12 points, four assists, and three steals. Emily Quirion (Augusta, Maine) scored 10 points and Emily Kehoe (Perkinsville, Vt.) added six points.
While the second half was close the entire way, Colby trailed 24-14 early in the second quarter. The Mules were still behind 29-21 with 4:26 to halftime, but used a 10-3 run the rest of the way to trail 32-31 at the break.

Women’s basketball gives tough game to No. 14 Tufts

WATERVILLE, Maine — The Colby College women’s basketball team led at halftime and only trailed by one point heading into the four quarter before 14th-ranked Tufts University used its size to pull out a 54-45 win over Colby College in NESCAC play Saturday at Wadsworth Gymnasium.

Tufts moves to 11-2 overall and 2-0 in the conference, while the Mules are 8-4 overall and 1-1 in the league.
The Jumbos have six players on the roster at 6-foot or taller, while Colby has no players that size. Tufts had a 48-30 advantage on the boards, including 22 offensive rebounds, and the Jumbos blocked nine shots.
The Mules, though, played hard and only trailed 35-34 heading into the final quarter. Colby held the Jumbos to 27.3 percent shooting in the first half to take a 23-20 lead into halftime.
Tufts made a concerted effort to get the ball inside in the fourth quarter to 6-foot-2 Michela North and 6-0 forward Melissa Baptista. The Mules then lost center Haley Driscoll to an ankle injury for about four minutes of the fourth quarter before she was able to get back in the game.
North finished with a double-double of 18 points and 14 rebounds to go along with three blocked shots. Baptista added 12 rebounds, a game-high four blocked shots, and scored five points. Baptista also had two of her three assists in the fourth quarter on kick-outs to Emma Roberson and Lauren Dillon for key 3-point field goals. Roberson had 10 points, five assists, and five rebounds. Dillon added nine points and four assists.
Desi Smith led Colby with 17 points, 6-for-7 shooting from the foul line, five rebounds, and a pair of steals. Carylanne Wolfington chipped in 11 points, while Mia Diplock scored seven and had three steals. Driscoll had a team-high six rebounds.
Tufts did the job defensively in the fourth quarter, holding the Mules to two free throws in the final 5:06 of the contest. Diplock scored inside with 5:06 remaining to give the Mules their final lead at 43-42.
The Jumbos went ahead for good on Baptiste’s assists to Dillon and Roberson on 3-point shots. Dillon put Tufts ahead to stay at 45-43 with her trey with 4:24 remaining and Roberson nailed her three for a 48-43 margin with 2:39 to go. The Jumbos went 6-for-8 from the foul line in the final 53 seconds to pull away.
Colby also had a scoring drought to start the game, going nearly seven minutes without a point. The Jumbos led 8-0 before Smith hit 1-for-2 at the foul line with 3:08 left in the first quarter.
The Mules had a terrific third quarter offensively and defensively, scoring 18 points and making it difficult for the Jumbos to get good shots. Colby took its first lead at 21-18 on a 3-point shot by Smith with 1:39 to intermission.
