Panthers Hang On to End Skid as Washington Posts Triple Double

Sunday, December 10, 2017

Tompkins Cortland Community College

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team never trailed Sunday while breaking a three-game losing skid with a 75-68 win over Hudson Valley Community College. The win leaves the Panthers 5-5 overall and 5-4 in Region III. Hudson Valley falls to 7-6 overall and 5-4 in region.

The Panthers led from the opening minute, outscoring the Vikings 15-8 in the first quarter and 21-18 in the second. The margin grew to as many as 18 points to end the third quarter at 62-44, but things got interesting in the fourth. After the Panthers moved ahead 68-48 on a Taylor Day (Brooktondale/Ithaca H.S.) with 6:30 left, the home team went ice cold. While Tompkins Cortland went the next five minutes without scoring, Hudson Valley ran off 12 points to cut the score to 68-60. Tatiana Minnick (Ithaca/Ithaca H.S.) finally got the Panthers back on track, scoring with 1:15 left to make it 70-62, but Hudson Valley responded with four straight to make it 70-66 with 41.8 seconds left. With the clock ticking and the pressure mounting, MacKenzie Kenyon (Ovid/South Seneca H.S.) came up huge with a three-pointer with 15 seconds left on the clock, pushing the lead to 73-66. After Hudson Valley scored to make it 73-68 with 7.7 seconds, left Day took a long inbounds pass from Minnick to beat the press with a layup to seal the win.

Five Panthers scored in double figures and three had double-doubles, but none had a bigger day than Jaida Washington (Elmira/Elmira H.S.). The sophomore had the third triple-double of her career, finishing with 20 points, 22 rebounds, 10 blocks, 4 assists, and 4 steals. Reyanah Brown (Syracuse Academy of Science/Syracuse) had 10 points and 10 rebounds to go with 3 blocks and Kenyon ended the game with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Day poured in 20 points along with 6 rebounds and 6 assists and Minnick had 11 points, 6 assists, and 5 steals.

The win sends the Panthers into the exams and holiday break on a positive note. The team is off until a January 8 date at Davis College.

Coaches–Women's Basketball

David Stevenson

Head Coach

Dave StevensonMSAC Coach of the Year
2010, 2013, 2014

Coach Stevenson enters his fourth season with the women's basketball program, following a similar track as he used during the most successful run in the history of the College's men's basketball program. In both cases, Stevenson inherited a program in need of rebuilding, and did so quickly. In 2016-17, the Panthers women's team posted the best winning percentage in over a decade, making playoffs for the second-straight year. During his decade directing the men's program, Coach Stevenson's teams established new records for wins, topping 20 victories three times, and won the Mid-State Athletic Conference championship three times (including his last two seasons). The goals for the women are similar, and the foundation is being laid.

Stevenson joined the men's basketball staff as an assistant in 2003-04, bringing a strong work ethic and knowledge of the game to the floor each night. He is well known for caring for his students both on and off the court, tracking academic progress as well as developing basketball skills. He has worked hard to bring quality players into the program, and to help those players continue their careers at the four-year level. In his time with the program, he has helped players earn scholarships to Mercy College in New York, Drake University in Iowa, and Avila University in Kansas. His former players have also shown up on the rosters at Buffalo State, Oneonta State, Oswego State, Old Westbury College, Morrisville State, Southwestern Oklahoma State, SUNY Fredonia, and Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire. A former standout athlete at Trumansburg High and a college baseball player, Coach Stevenson is Tompkins Cortland's assistant athletic director.

The Panthers scored the first five points of the game, but Jefferson came back to move in front midway through the first quarter. The period ended with Tompkins Cortland holding an 18-16 lead, and the second quarter followed with more lead changes before Jefferson took a 36-34 lead into the halftime.

The third quarter saw Jefferson build the biggest lead of the game, a seven-point advantage at 56-49. Tompkins Cortland rallied in the final ten minutes, pulling within one at 63-62 with four minutes left, but the Panthers couldn’t get back in front over the final few minutes. Trailing by four in the final minute, Taylor Day (Brooktondale/Ithaca H.S.) drove for a score to cut the deficit to 66-64, but an intentional foul call let Jefferson push the margin to 67-64 with a free throw. A steal on the ensuing possession gave the Panthers one final chance, but the shot wouldn’t fall, leaving the final score 67-64.

Day finished the game with a team-high 20 points. Jaida Washington (Elmira/Elmira H.S.) had a double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds while also blocking 5 shots. MacKenzie Kenyon (Ovid/South Seneca H.S.) had 11 points to go with 7 steals, and 2 assists and Reyanah Brown (Syracuse/Syracuse Academy of Science) grabbed a team-best 16 rebounds.

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team had won eight straight home games entering Friday’s contest with North Country Community College, a streak that dated back to December 2016.

The Saints outscored the home team in each quarter and held a ten-point lead at 35-25 at the half. The Panthers couldn’t get any closer than eight points in the second half as the Saints steadily pulled away for the win.

MacKenzie Kenyon (Ovid/South Seneca H.S.) again led the team in scoring, pouring in 17 points. Taylor Day (Brooktondale/Ithaca H.S.) had 13 points, 3 boards, and 3 blocks and Jaida Washington (Elmira/Elmira H.S.) had 12 rebounds, 8 blocks, and 7 points.

Three Players Post Double-Doubles in Win

Sunday, November 05, 2017

Three different Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball players posted double-doubles Sunday as the Panthers picked up a 65-56 win over Fulton-Montgomery Community College. The home-opener win evens Tompkins Cortland’s record at 1-1. It was the season opener for Fulton-Montgomery.

The Panthers opened strong, scoring the first 11 points of the game and keeping Fulton-Montgomery scoreless for more than five minutes. The Raiders slowly crept back, but the Panthers led 15-7 after the first quarter and 31-25 at the half. The margin slipped to five points midway through the third quarter, but three-pointers by Taylor Day (Brooktondale/Ithaca H.S.) and MacKenzie Kenyon (Ovid/South Seneca H.S.) on consecutive possessions pushed the lead to 51-40 late in the quarter. The break came with the score at 53-41.

The fourth saw Fulton-Montgomery make a final push, but a sequence midway through the quarter seemed to erase any doubt in the end result. Jaida Washington (Elmira/Elmira H.S.) started the play with a blocked shot, which Kenyon gathered and fired down court to Reyanah Brown (Syracuse/Syracuse Academy of Science) for the fast break bucket. The layup gave the Panthers the biggest lead of the day at 13 points, and the margin remained in double figures until the closing seconds of the game.

Kenyon led the way with 20 points and 11 rebounds, adding five assists and four steals. Washington had another huge game with 12 points, 14 rebounds, seven blocks, and six steals. Brown had 12 points and 12 boards, while Day just missed the double-double club, tossing in 17 points and grabbing eight rebounds.

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team opened the season Thursday with a long trip and a strong opponent. The Panthers traveled to Jamestown Community College and lost to the Division II Jayhawks by a final of 76-55. It was Jamestown’s season opener as well.
