Coaching Changes for TC3 Basketball

June 20, 2014

The upcoming basketball season at Tompkins Cortland Community College will have some familiar faces in unfamiliar places. Director of Athletics Mick McDaniel has announced that David Stevenson has been appointed the head women's basketball coach and Rich Echevarria has been appointed the head men’s basketball coach. Stevenson has been the head men’s basketball coach for the past nine seasons; Echevarria has been one of his assistant coaches for the past three years.

Stevenson takes over the women’s program for Jaclyn Sutton, who stepped down after four years. Assistant coach Jeff Riker will remain on the women’s coaching staff; assistant coach Brian Carroll will remain with the men’s team.

"Coach Stevenson has proven to be one of the top coaches in our region, and I have every confidence that he will enjoy the same success with the women’s program that he had with the men’s,” said McDaniel. "Coach Echevarria is a fantastic recruiter and is dedicated to continuing the winning and sportsmanlike ways that are now synonymous with TC3 athletics. I fully expect great things for both programs."

Stevenson is the most successful basketball coach in TC3 history. He took over a men’s program that had one winning season in its first 29 seasons and turned it into a consistent regional contender. His teams made the postseason five times, including the last three seasons. TC3 won three Mid-State Athletic Conference championships, including the last two, and Stevenson was named the MSAC Coach of the Year three times. He won more games (123) than all the other men’s basketball coaches in TC3 history combined, and is the only men’s basketball coach in College history with a winning percentage (.519).

"I'm very excited to take on the challenge of moving the women’s program forward," said Stevenson. "I’m equally excited to leave the men’s program to a former player and coach."

Echevarria is a former player at TC3 and a graduate of the College’s sport management program. He has coached on the AAU level and a various college camps, and has been an assistant on Stevenson’s bench during the best three-year run in program history. During his time with the Panthers, TC3 has a .675 winning percentage (54-26) and captured two straight conference titles. Those three years also saw the Panthers produce an all-American, four all-region selections, a two-time conference player of the year, and six all-conference selections.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to continue the tradition that has been started with Coach Stevenson,” said Echevarria. “I will work to build our student-athletes up to the best they can be, and prepare them to move to a four-year school, both on the court and academically.”

Tyseem Lyles Named All American

May 2, 2014


NJCAA All-American Tyseem Lyles

Tompkins Cortland Community College men's basketball player Tyseem Lyles (Health Professions H.S./Brooklyn) has been named a National Junior College Athletic Association All American. Lyles was named to the third team, becoming just the second TC3 men’s basketball player ever named an All American. Jude Princivil was the first, honored after the 1994-95 season.

Lyles is a two-time Mid-State Athletic Conference Player of the Year and a two-time selection to the NJCAA All-Region III First Team. He led TC3 in scoring both years, including averaging 18.5 points per game this year. He set TC3 season records for assists and steals this year, and established a new career record for assists. He was tops in Region III in steals, second in assists, and second in three-point shooting percentage (51.9%).

A total of 15 players were honored with All-American recognition on the Division III level, which includes 109 teams.

Lyles and Redden Named All-Region

March 10, 2014

Tompkins Cortland Community College men's basketball players Tyseem Lyles (Health Professions H.S./Brooklyn) and Devin Redden (St. Mary’s H.S./Buffalo) have been named to the NJCAA Region III All-Region team. Lyles was named to the first team while Redden was placed on the third team. It’s the third time TC3 has placed two players on the all-region team, and the first time since the 2009-10 season.

Lyles, a sophomore sport management major, is the first TC3 player ever named to the first team two years in a row. He played in 26 games this year, leading the team with an 18.5-points-per-game average. He averaged 6.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 4.0 steals per game, setting new TC3 records for assists in a season and career and steals in a season. He was first in the region in steals, second in assists, and second in three-point shooting percentage (51.9%).

Redden, a sophomore criminal justice major, was second on the team in scoring with an average of 14.1 points per game. He averaged 5.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists steals per game for the season, and stepped it up to 16.7 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game in conference play. He scored in double figures in 20 of his 25 games and topped 20 points six times. He had a double-double in TC3’s win at SUNY Broome and led TC3 in scoring six times, all wins.

Both players were also named to All-Mid-State Athletic Conference, with Lyles earning the MSAC Player of the Year award. The duo led the Panthers to a two-year record of 41-12, two MSAC championships, and two appearances in the NJCAA Region III quarterfinals. The two-year win total represents the most in TC3 history.

Highlights–2013-14 Men's Basketball

Panthers Close Regular Season with Win

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

TC3 men's basketball

Five players scoring at least 14 points powered the Tompkins Cortland Community College men's basketball team to a 92-80 win over Corning Community College Wednesday. The regular-season finale leaves TC3’s with a Mid-State Athletic Conference regular-season championship record of 11-1 in conference and 18-6 overall. Corning finishes the regular season in second place in the MSAC with a conference mark of 8-4 and an overall record of 14-12. Both teams will take part in the conference playoffs this weekend at TC3.

The Panthers got off to a slow start, trailing by 11 points just six minutes into the game. From the 16-5 deficit TC3 went on a 7-0 run to close the gap to 16-12 with 12:22 left in the half. Corning pushed the lead back to nine points at 26-17, but TC3 responded chipping away the rest of the half, pulling within one on a pair of free throws by Devin Redden (St. Mary’s H.S./Buffalo) with 11.5 seconds left. The deficit remained one at 37-36 heading into the break.

Corning tried to re-establish a cushion, scoring 12 of the first 19 points of the half to lead 49-43 with 16:30 left. Ninety seconds later, the score stood at 51-48 when Joel Costello (Middleburgh H.S./Middleburgh) drained back-to-back three pointers to start a 17-2 run that gave the Panthers the 65-53 lead with 11:06 left on the clock. Corning put together a final rally, closing to within four points at 74-70 with five minutes left, but TC3 answered to push the lead back to double figures at 84-74 with 2:02 left. Strong foul shooting sealed the win down the stretch, with the Panthers making 74.2% from the line in the second half.

Laszlo Hajnoczi (Hunter-Tannersville H.S./Tannersville) led the parade of double figures scorers with 19 points. Redden and Tyseem Lyles (Health Professions H.S./Brooklyn) each scored 17, with Lyles posting team-bests of eight rebounds, seven assists, and three steals. Costello had 15 points and Robert Mills, Jr. (Newburgh Free Academy/Newburgh) tossed in 14.

As the regular season champions, TC3 hosts the Mid-State Athletic Conference playoffs this weekend. The four-team tournament starts with semifinals on Friday: #1 TC3 vs. #4 Cayuga at 5 p.m. and #2 Corning vs. #3 Finger Lakes at 7 p.m. The conference championship game is Saturday at 1 p.m.
