      Basketball LogoChances are, if you have not heard about the success of the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams here at Dean College, you probably have not been paying attention. The men are currently undefeated at 10-0 heading in to the short Thanksgiving break. The women have an impressive 8-1 record and have been playing dominant basketball all season as we head toward the holiday.

      Charles Correa Leading the Charge
      Though it has been an entire team effort that has led to the impressive start under second year Head Coach Rich Fazzi, the Bulldogs can point to freshman guard Charles Correa (Providence, RI) for helping spark the success each game.  Correa is averaging a cool 15.6 points per game while dishing 4.1 assists per game, and adding 3.6 rebounds per game on the other end of the court. Correa has started every game as a freshman and has also led the Bulldogs with 3.1 steals per game.

      Other notable statistics: Jamal Reuben is putting up 13.6 points per game to go along with a team leading 6.3 rebounds per game. Joe Clarke adding consistency off the bench, shooting 57.7 percent while tallying 13.8 points per game. The Bulldogs as a team are third in the nation in steals, averaging 15.2 per game.

      Record: 10-0
      Next Game: December 5th, 8:00PM @ CCRI

      Forward Progress: Shaina Rowley & Janaysia James Absolutely Dominating
      The women are playing excellent basketball under first year Head Coach Grahm Smith. In particular, opposing teams just do not know what to do with Forwards Shaina Rowley (sophomore, Killingworth, CT) and Janaysia James (freshman, Perth Amboy, NJ). Rowley is a monster on offense, putting up 20.9 points points per game to go along with 5.2 rebounds per game. Equally as impressive, James is almost averaging a double-double per game as she nets 16.9 points per game and a dominating 9.2 rebounds per game.

      Other notable statistics: Following up her NJCAA All-Star campaign from last year, Vanessa Sylvain is once again across the board impressive. Scoring 14.9 per game, she adds 7 assists per game along with 5.9 rebounds and 5.9 steals. Victoria Nguyen averages 14 points per game as well as 5.7 rebounds and 4.7 steals per game. The team leads the league in steals at 21.2 per game and is third in points per game at 89.1.

      Record: 8-1
