  • Looking to Repeat in 2015

    Women's Basketball

    The women’s team will be coming back to school this fall looking to replicate their success from last year where they compiled a 17-6 record as Region XXI Champions. Second-year coach Grahm Smith has put together another strong recruiting class to make a concerted effort to return to district tournament in 2015.

    On Saturday at Pieri Gymnasium, the Dean College women’s basketball team captured its second consecutive Region XXI title with a 65-58 win over Orange County Community College. The Bulldogs (16-6) now travel to the County College of Morris next weekend (March 7-8) to participate in the District tournament. The two finalists in the district tournament qualify to compete in the NJCAA Division II national championship, held on March 17-21 at Johnson County Community College.  

    In the first round of the district tournament, Dean will be matched up with the number one seed, Union County Community College (25-4), who defeated Lackawanna College on Saturday in their regional final. Lackawanna (22-4) will face Monroe College (24-1) in the second semifinal on Saturday.
