      Dean College Men’s Basketball Team Ranks #1 in NJCAA Polls for First Time in Team History


      Dean College Men’s Basketball Team Ranks #1 in NJCAA Polls for First Time in Team History

      The Dean College basketball teams return to campus this week, and the men will have a bulls-eye on their back, as they are ranked number one in the latest NJCAA Division II poll.  Their 12-0 record has been built with aggressive defense and a balanced offense, which have been the mainstays for Head Coach Rich Fazzi all year long.  

      “Our guys have done a great job so far this year, really buying into our fast paced pressing system,” said Coach Fazzi. The men are ranked second in the country with 14.2 steals per game, cashing in on turnovers to help them win games.

      Freshman point guard Charles Correa (Providence, RI) is the team’s leading scorer at 15.9 points per game, and is  also the team leader in assists and steals.  Freshman Joe Clarke (New Rochelle, NY) chips in with 14.1 points per game, while sophomore leadership comes from Jamal Reuben (Brockton, MA), who is averaging 13.2 points per game along with a team leading 6.2 rebounds per game.

      “We have already accomplished some of our goals by setting the record for the most wins to start a season, and being nationally ranked,” said Fazzi. “Being ranked number one in the country is a first for Dean College and it’s great for the players to be recognized for all their hard work, but our season is only half over. Our goal from day one is to win our Region and District and make it to Nationals.”

      Dean College’s women’s basketball team is currently ranked 17th in the newest NJCAA poll, sporting a 9-1 overall record.  Just like their male counterparts, this team plays hard-nose defense and shares the scoring load.  They are first in the country in steals at 20 per game, and are ranked fourth in field goals made per game.

      “Our ladies have done a great job so far this year and are off to a great start,” says head coach Graham Smith. “They have really bought in to the system and continue to conduct themselves in a positive manner on and off the court.”

      Coach Grahm Smith brings a deep team to the floor, led by guards Victoria Nguyen (Watertown, MA), who is averaging 13.4 points and 6.2 assists per game. 2013 NJCAA All Star Vanessa Sylvain (Brockton, MA) is averaging 15.7 points and 6.8 assists while sophomore small forward Shaina Rowley (Killingworth, CT) is the team’s leading scorer, averaging 19.0.  

      “For our girls to gain recognition for their efforts is a true testament to their hard work and dedication.”
