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.”

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–2005-06 Men's Basketball

Panthers Knock Off Broome to End Season

Wednesday, February 22, 2006

The TC3 men's basketball team ended the season with a win over a playoff-bound team Wednesday. The Panthers led the entire way while winning at Broome Community College 76-68. TC3 ends the season 5-21 overall and 1-13 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Broome is now 15-10 overall and 9-5 in the MSAC.
 
TC3 was sparked by a strong defensive effort, taking a 32-27 lead into the break. The Panthers came out and pushed the lead to 11 points over the first ten minutes of the second half before Broome made run to pull within one at 56-55 with about seven minutes to play. The Panthers never gave up the lead, however, outscoring the hosts the rest of the way to post the win.
 
Four Panthers scored in double figures, led by Andy Jeffries (Central Square HS/Central Square) with 18 points. Jared Martin (Canton HS/Canton) scored 17 points and Josh Gillen (South Lewis HS/Brantingham) finished with 15. John McKenzie (Harry Van Arsdale HS/Brooklyn) added 11 and a team-high 9 rebounds.
 
Broome's Will Ponder led all scorers with 24 points.


Panthers Lose at Corning

Saturday, February 18, 2006

A bad stretch to end the first half triggered a road loss for the TC3 men's basketball team Saturday as the Panthers lost at Corning Community College 84-53. TC3 drops to 4-21 overall and 0-13 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning stands at 15-10 overall and 9-4 in the MSAC.
 
The game was tight most of the first half. TC3 trailed 31-27 in the closing moments before Corning closed the half with a 7-2 run to take a 38-29 lead into the break. The momentum carried over the second half as the home team pulled away for the win.
 
Andre Miles (Buffalo Traditional/Buffalo) had a big game for the Panthers, scoring a team-high 23 points while grabbing 10 rebounds.
 
Corning's Gerard Johnson led all scorers with 24 points.
 
TC3 ends the season Wednesday with a game at Broome Community College.


Panthers Drop Home Finale

Wednesday, February 15, 2006

The home finale was a disappointing one for the TC3 men's basketball team Wednesday as the Panthers fell to Jefferson Community College 88-73. TC3 falls to 4-20 overall and 0-12 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference while Jefferson improves to 17-8 overall and 8-4 in the MSAC.
 
The game opened with the two teams trading baskets over the first three minutes before Jefferson used a 14-0 run to take a 20-6 lead. The bulge grew to 24 before settling at 50-30 at the half.
 
The second half saw Jefferson push the lead to 27 at 69-42 with 13:26 before staged a rally, scoring 11 of the next 12 points to bring it to 70-53. The Panthers' comeback continued as a three-pointer by Garrett Stage (Cortland HS/Cortland) cut the lead to within 12 with five minutes to play, but that was as close as TC3 could get as Jefferson closed out the win.
 
Andy Jeffries (Central Square HS/Central Square) led the Panthers with 25 points. Andre Miles (Buffalo Traditional/Buffalo) and Jared Martin (Canton HS/Canton) added 15 and 14, respectively.
 
Marcus Hall led four Jefferson players in double figures with 17 points.
 
TC3 travels to Corning Community College on Saturday before ending the season at Broome Community College next Wednesday.


Hot Shooting Not Enough for Panthers

Saturday, February 11, 2006

A good shooting day wasn't enough for the TC3 men's basketball team to overcome a decided size disadvantage Saturday against Finger Lakes Community College as the Panthers fell 109-86. TC3 falls to 4-19 overall and 0-11 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference while Finger Lakes improves to 16-8 overall and 8-3 in the MSAC.
 
After giving up the game's first nine points, the Panthers clawed back into the game, relying heavily on strong outside shooting. The Panthers eventually tied it at 40-40 with just over four minute to play in the half before the visitors responded with a 15-4 run to close out the half, taking a 55-44 lead into the break.
 
The Panthers continue to shoot well the second half, but the inability to match up inside kept the team from making a comeback. For the game, TC3 shot 39.5 percent from three-point range, sinking a season-high 15, but Finger Lakes out-rebounded TC3 58-29, leading to a 34-8 advantage in second chance points.
 
The guard tandem of Andy Jeffries (Central Square HS/Central Square) and Jared Martin (Canton HS/Canton) did most of the damage for TC3. Jeffries led the team with 26 points, including four three-pointers while Jared added 25 points and a game-high five three-points. Tim Parks (McGraw HS/McGraw) drained three three-pointers as part of his 11 points.
 
Juan Paulino had a big day for Finger Lakes, scoring 28 points while grabbing 21 rebounds. Ryan Weser added 23 points and 14 rebounds.
 
TC3 hosts Jefferson Community College in the home finale Wednesday at 8:00 p.m.

Saturday, November 12, 2005

The good news for the TC3 men's basketball team is that their shooting can only get better. The bad news is that an unusually cold day from the floor led to a lopsided season-opening loss at Alfred State Saturday. The Panthers fell 90-54 to the Division II Pioneers. TC3 is now 0-1 while Alfred State stands at 3-0.
 
As a team, TC3 made just 19 of 73 attempts from the floor (26%), with only three players making 50% or better individually. Anthony Toulson (Frederick Douglas HS/Bronx) had the best offensive day for TC3, hitting for 22 points. Tariq Macklin (Queens Vocational/Laurelton) added 10 points, and Jared Martin (Canton HS/Canton) worked through an uncharacteristically tough shooting night to pull down 8 rebounds. Steve Pallotta (Central Square HS/Hastings) was a factor in the paint with seven rebounds and four blocks.
 
Tyler Lloyd hit six 3-pointers for 18 points to lead Alfred State. Damian Hyman added 15.
 
TC3 has its home opener Wednesday when Mohawk Valley Community College comes to Dryden for an 8:00 p.m. game.
