      Dean's success has come with a fast-paced running and pressing game, as they lead the nation in steals at the Division II level with fifteen a game.  Offensively, they have a balanced attack led by Joe Clarke (13.8 ppg), Charles Correa (13.7) and Jamal Reuben (13.6).  They are currently riding a three-game winning streak with two regular season games remaining, Monday at UConn-Avery point and at home on Wednesday versus Bunker Hill Community College.
