Huge Second Half Lifts TC3 Women to Win

Saturday, November 15, 2014

A great second half lifted the Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team to a 76-64 home win Saturday over SUNY Delhi. The win improves TC3 to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in Region III play. Delhi is 4-3 overall and 3-2 in regional games.

The visiting Broncos led the entire first half. After scoring the game’s first eight points, Delhi kept the margin between five and ten points until the horn ending the half came with the score 36-29. The second half saw the Panthers come out strong, using a 9-2 run to tie the score at 38-38 three minutes into the half. Delhi responded with four straight to lead 42-38, but TC3 came back with six straight, taking its first lead of the game at 44-42 on a pair of LaAsia Swift (Boys and Girls H.S./Brooklyn) free throws with 15:09 left on the clock. The lead was short-lived, with Delhi scoring six straight to move ahead 48-44. TC3 again responded with Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) scoring five-straight points to give the lead back to the Panthers. After a Delhi basket ended the run, Sierra Stoppkotte (Greene H.S./Greene) connected on a jumper to put TC3 ahead 51-50 with 12:01 on the clock. The basket started a 19-6 run over the next seven minutes, putting the home team in command 70-56. The lead would continue to grow, peaking at 16 points with 1:27 left before settling in at the 12-point win for the Panthers.

By the time the final horn sounded, TC3 had put together a fantastic second half. The Panthers outscored Delhi 47-28 in the second half, putting up more points in the second half than the team did in the entire game of three of the previous four games. Bowman led the way, scoring 16 of her game-high 24 points in the second half. She finished the game with great line: 24 points, eight rebounds, eight steals, and five assists. Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) had a huge double-double of 14 points and 17 rebounds and Mariah Crawford (Newfield H.S./Newfield) poured in 18 points. Stoppkotte finished with 10 points and Leemu Yarkpawolo (Renaissance Charter School for Innovation/Manhattan) grabbed 10 rebounds.

The Panthers have a six-day break from games before returning to the road Friday. TC3 travels north for weekend games against North Country Community College and Clinton Community College.

Panthers Win Playoff Game in OT

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Boxscore

Trailing by four points with under three minutes left in regulation, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team put together one of its best stretches of play this season, first tying the game in regulation and then running away with it in overtime, winning 77-67 over Schenectady County Community College in the opening round of the NJCAA Region III playoffs. The #8 seeded Panthers will take on #1 Mohawk Valley Community College Friday in a regional quarterfinal. Tip-off will be at one at Mohawk Valley. It’s TC3’s first appearance in the women’s quarterfinals since 2010.

The first half featured eight lead changes as neither team led by more than six points. The home team went to the locker room with a 35-34 lead. In the second half, the teams again traded the lead, with Schenectady moving ahead to the biggest lead of the game at 60-52 with seven minutes left in regulation. The Panthers began the comeback with a foul shot by Chelsy Kern (Candor H.S./Candor) and completed it with a pair of free throws by Kern to tie the game at 60-60 with two minutes left in the second half. Schenectady broke a nearly six-minute scoreless drought and regained the lead with a free throw making it 61-60 heading into the last minute. Chelsi Rosa (Bainbridge-Guilford H.S./Bainbridge) hit a free throw with 55.7 second left, knotting the score at 61-61. On the next possession, Schenectady rebounded their own miss, putting them in position to hold the ball for the last shot, but TC3’s Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia) came up with a steal to send the game into overtime.

Moments into the extra period, Schenectady reclaimed the lead with a free throw, but Kern again tied the game with another foul shot, making it 62-62 with four minutes left. Over the next three possessions, the Panthers took control. Nicole Goodwin (Newfield H.S./Newfield) scored off an assist from Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) and then again off a pass from Ideman. Ideman netted a pair of free throws to give TC3 a 68-62 lead with three minutes left. Ordway made it points in four straight possessions with some great hustle, beating everyone down the floor to turn a pass from Ideman into a layup and making it 70-62 with 2:20 left. The next possession saw TC3’s first missed shot in over two minutes of play, but an offensive rebound and put-back by Goodwin made it 72-62 with two minutes left. Schenectady scored its first overtime basket from the floor with 1:21 left to go, but it was too little too late as the Panthers pulled away for the win.

Kern led a balanced attack with 24 points to go with eight rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and two steals. Ideman posted 22 points, three rebounds, three assists, and two steals and Goodwin had a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds, while also blocking three shots. Ordway had a game-high 12 points while Rosa and Adrienne Murray (Moravia H.S./Moravia) shared team-high honors with five assists each.

TC3’s overall record is now 10-15, with a regional record of 10-12.


Panthers Upended in MSAC Semifinal

Friday, February 22, 2013

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team run in the Mid-State Athletic Conference postseason tournament came to an end Friday with a semifinal loss to top-seed Onondaga Community College. The #4-seed Panthers fell 95-53 to the nationally-ranked Lazers, leaving TC3 with an overall record of 9-15. Onondaga will play #2-seed Finger Lakes Community College in the final Saturday. Finger Lakes advanced with a semifinal win over #3-Jefferson Community College.

Chelsy Kern (Candor H.S./Candor) provided a bright spot for the Panthers, scoring 17 points. Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) just missed a double-double with 10 points and eight rebounds.

TC3, with a regional record of 9-12, now awaits word on a possible NJCAA Region III playoff bid. The NJCAA tournament seedings will be announced Sunday.


Panthers Beat Broome 55-46 in MSAC Quarterfinals

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Boxscore

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team is heading back to the Mid-State Athletic Conference semifinals for the first time in four years after beating Broome Community College 55-46 in a quarterfinal game Tuesday. It will be the first trip to the conference final four since 2009-10, and just the fourth trip in the history of the program. The Panthers will take on top-seed Onondaga Community College Friday at 5 p.m. at Onondaga. The winner of that game will advance to Saturday’s MSAC championship game at Onondaga.

The quarterfinal game between #4 TC3 and #5 Broome was the third meeting of the year between the teams, with TC3 winning both of the first two games. Early on, it looked like number three would come easily for the Panthers as the home team jumped out to a fast start. Becca Holton Tomasdottir (Cape Fear Academy (N.C.)/Reykjavik, Iceland) started the game strong, converting a basket and foul shot for a three-point play to put the Panthers on the board. Over the next few minutes, Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia) drained a three-pointer and Holton Tomasdottir made two layups to make it 10-0. Broome finally got on the board, but two more baskets by Ideman made it 14-2 five minutes into the game. But just as it seemed like the Panthers would run away with the game, every turned around and Broome scored the next 12 to tie the game at 14-14. A pair of free throws by Holton Tomasdottir broke the Broome run and sparked a 7-0 spurt for the Panthers that included another three-pointer by Holton Tomasdottir and made the score 21-14 with five minutes left in the half. Appropriate for a first half that featured the two teams trading runs, Broome outscored the Panthers 14-2 the rest of the way to close the half with a 28-23 lead.

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team showed plenty of promise in its season opener Saturday, eventually falling to Division II Jamestown Community College 85-71. With just one sophomore on the roster, Saturday marked the collegiate debut for eight TC3 players.

The game was close most of the first half before Jamestown closed out the half on a run that gave them a 51-32 lead. The margin grew to 25 points in the second half, but TC3 fought back, eventually outscoring the visitors in the 39-34 in the second half.

Freshmen Becca Holton (Cape Fear Academy (N.C.)/Reykjavik, Iceland) and Coriesha Hickey (Corcoran H.S./Syracuse) each had 18 points for the Panthers. Classmate Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia) just missed a double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds. Nicole Goodwin (Newfield H.S./Newfield), also a freshman, narrowly missed a different kind of double-double, finishing with 13 rebounds to go with eight blocked shots.

TC3 hosts SUNY Delhi Tuesday.
