Briarcliffe College Women’s Basketball

Briarcliffe College Women’s Basketball

The 2009-2010 Briarcliffe College women’s basketball season began on October 15th with the largest roster in the schools history with 14 young ladies on the team. Led by co-captains Tamika Pearson, Nina Creese and Laura McTaggart the young Bulldogs were primed to finish in the top 15 in the country for a third consecutive year.

With the three returning co-captains and steady veterans Danielle Eagan and Feniere James, the Lady Bulldogs were ready to embark in what would prove to be another great year. Third year head Coach Jay Lynch believed he had assembled the talent for another nationally ranked team, especially after adding highly touted freshman Jasmine Castro – Lopez from Wings HS in the Bronx, a point guard who was NYC’s leader in assists per game her senior year.

An invitation to the USCAA National Tournament and a chance for a national championship came down to a February match-up with USCAA rival St. Joe’s of Brooklyn. BC was ranked #15 and the Lady Bears of St. Joe’s #16, but both much higher in the power rankings. Before another jammed gym the game took many turns before St. Joe’s prevailed and defeated the Lady Bulldogs for the first time since 2005 and first time under Coach Lynch’s leadership.

The Bulldogs finished the season 12-10 and ranked #15 in the country just missing a bid to the championship. With many players graduating Coach Lynch will begin the road to the 2011 USCAA National Championship by recruiting some of the Metro-NY area’s top players to the Bethpage campus this fall.
