Panthers Drop Second Straight at Home

Tuesday, December 06, 2016

Tompkins Cortland Community College

Boxscore

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women’s basketball team couldn’t muster enough offense at the most important time of the game Tuesday, losing to Finger Lakes Community College 65-58. The loss drops the Panthers to 5-4 overall, 3-4 in Region III, and 1-1 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Finger Lakes is 8-3 overall and 6-1 in Region III. It was the conference opener for the Lakers.

After fighting back from an early hole, the Panthers led 16-15 at the end of the first quarter. In the second the margin grew to as much as seven, and stood at 26-20 with 5:03 left on the clock when the Panthers went cold. Over the rest of the quarter, the home team went 0-9 from the floor and 0-2 from the foul line as the visiting Lakers closed out the half on a 14-0 run to take a 34-26 lead into the break.

The Panthers answered in the third, scoring the first seven points, pulling within one on a three-point play by Tatiana Minnick (Ithaca H.S./Ithaca) with 7:00 left in the third. The teams played mostly even the rest of the quarter, with the score knotted at 47-47 heading into the final stanza.

Anasah DeMember (Elmira H.S./Elmira) put the Panthers ahead with a pair of free throws early in the fourth, and the home team held a 50-47 lead with seven minutes left to play. A minute later the Lakers had tied the game at 50-50, starting a 9-2 run that put the visitors up 56-52 with 4:35 left. Like in the first half, the Panthers struggled to score as the clock wore down. Over the final five minutes of the game the Panthers scored just six points, including a bucket as the clock ran out. The result was the first conference loss and the second straight overall defeat for the Panthers.

DeMember led Tompkins Cortland in scoring for the second straight game, tossing in 16 points to go with six rebounds, four steals, and three assists. Brianna Lawrence (Ramapo H.S./Spring Valley) scored 14 points while grabbing five rebounds and Minnick finished with 13 points. Jaida Washington (Elmira H.S./Elmira) led the team with 11 rebounds and three blocks.

The Panthers close out the fall semester with a game Saturday at Hudson Valley Community College. Following Saturday’s game the team has a break for finals and the holidays; the next contest will be January 14.

Coaches–Women's Basketball

David Stevenson

Head Coach

Dave StevensonMSAC Coach of the Year
2010, 2013, 2014

Coach Stevenson enters his third 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 2015-16, the Panthers women's team posted the best winning percentage in over a decade, making both the conference and regional playoffs. 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.

Jeff Riker

Assistant Coach

Jeff Riker

Coach Riker returns for his seventh season on the bench with the women's program. A strong recruiter and teacher on the court, he has been instrumental in bringing in the program's top players and helping them reach their potential. His passion for the game extends back to when he was an IAC all-star at Dryden High. He played college ball at Onondaga Community College, appearing the Region III All-Star Game, and at SUNY Potsdam.

Coach Riker has consistently been supportive of Tompkins Cortland's student-athletes, both on and off the court, a quality he shares with Head Coach Stevenson.

Highlights–2013-14 Women's Basketball

Season Ends on High Note

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Tompkins Cortland women's basketball

The Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team closed out the 2013-14 season Wednesday on a positive note, beating Corning Community College 65-54. The win is the second straight for Tompkins Cortland, with both coming against teams heading into the playoffs. Tompkins Cortland ends the season with a 6-16 overall and 4-8 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference. Corning is 8-16 overall and 5-7 in the MSAC. The Red Barons qualified for the four-team MSAC playoffs as the fourth seed. Tompkins Cortland finished the year fifth in the MSAC.

The Panthers trailed most of the first half, with Corning jumping out to an 11-4 lead early on. Tompkins Cortland chipped away, eventually taking a 22-21 lead into halftime.

The Red Barons opened the second half with a run that pushed the visitors into the lead at 32-28. Tompkins Cortland responded with five straight points, taking the lead on a pair of free throws by Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden). The rally continued, eventually building the lead to 11 points after a pair of three-pointers by Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) made the score 47-36 with 9:40 left on the clock. The home team held a lead at or above seven points the rest of the way, sealing the win despite going just 4-of-11 from the free throw line in the second half.

Bowman led the Panthers with 15 points, four assists, six rebounds, and seven steals. Ordway and Jaquella Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse) each scored 14 points, with Lockwood registering a double-double with 11 rebounds along with three assists and three steals. Ordway pulled down eight boards and Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) poured in 11 points and handed out four assists.

The game was the final one for five sophomores: Ordway, Lockwood, Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia), Kenisha Adams (Hillcrest H.S./Queens), and Nicole Goodwin (Newfield H.S./Newfield).


Panthers Ride Second Half Wave to Win

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Tompkins Cortland women's basketball

Playing on Sophomore Day, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team put together its best half of basketball this year, pulling away for an 82-69 win over the #4-ranked team in the region, Schenectady County Community College. The win improves Tompkins Cortland to 5-16 on the year. Schenectady drops to 16-6.

The first half featured five lead changes, with the biggest lead being a nine-point advantage for Tompkins Cortland with 6:48 left in the half. Over the final minutes of the half, Schenectady would outscore the Panthers 20-5 to take a 37-31 lead into the break.

The home team cut the gap to three points quickly in the second half, making the score 47-44. Over the next four minutes, Tompkins Cortland would go on a 14-6 run to take the lead. Schenectady rallied to tie the score at 64-64 with 4:37 left, but a jumper by Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) sparked a rally that saw the home team score 18 of the final 23 points to seal the win.

As a team, Tompkins Cortland made 51.3% from the floor in the second half to finish at 44.4% for the game. Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia) led the way, pouring in a career-high 27 points on 11-of-19 shooting, including 4-for-6 from three-point range. Ordway posted a big double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds, swiping five steals on the way. Jaquella Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse) and Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) each had 15 points, with Lockwood pulling down seven rebounds and Bowman passing out seven assists. Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) grabbed 11 rebounds.

Tompkins Cortland ends the season Wednesday with a home game against Corning Community College. Tip is set for 5 p.m.


Cold Shooting Costs Panthers

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Cold-shooting throughout the lineup cost the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team a chance for a win Saturday as the Panthers dropped a 62-48 decision to Cayuga Community College. Tompkins Cortland is now 3-8 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 5-15 overall. Cayuga, the last place team in the MSAC, is now 2-10 in conference and 3-22 overall.

The Panthers couldn’t snap out of their shooting rut the entire game. The team made just 20% from the field in the first half, and the accuracy went down to 19% in the second half. From three-point range the Panthers made just 23% for the game, and the charity stripe wasn’t friendly either, as Tompkins Cortland made just 45.8% from the line.

Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) was the lone Panther to reach double figures in scoring, netting 19 points on 7-of-22 shooting, one of the better percentages on the team. Taylor Policay (Lansing H.S./Lansing), Jaquella Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse), and Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) each had big games on the boards, collecting 17, 12, and 11 rebounds, respectively.

Tompkins Cortland hosts Schenectady County Community College Sunday at 1 p.m.

Panthers Fall in Double OT

Thursday, February 06, 2014

After leading all of regulation and much of the first overtime, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team couldn’t finish the game with a win, falling 82-72 in double overtime. Tompkins Cortland drops to 3-6 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference and 5-13 overall. Finger Lakes improves to 6-3 in the MSAC and 10-10 overall.

The visiting Panthers lead by double figures in regulation, including a 33-20 advantage at halftime. In the second half, Finger Lakes used a late rally, capped by a three-pointer in the closing seconds, to tie the score at 60-60. In the first overtime the teams traded baskets, with neither team leading by more than two points. With ten second left, Audrey Kate Ordway gave the Panthers a 70-68 lead, but a Tompkins Cortland foul, one of 29 called on the Panthers during the game, sent a Finger Lakes player to the free throw line. After making one of two, Tompkins Cortland grabbed a rebound and seemed to be headed to the win, but a turnover and another foul sent Finger Lakes back to the line. The Lakers again made one of two, tying the score at 70-70 and forcing a second extra period.

In the second overtime, Tompkins Cortland again scored first, taking a 72-70 lead, but 12 straight points for the home team made the final 82-72.

By the time the game ended, the home team had taken 42 foul shots, compared to 21 for the visiting Panthers. Three Panthers had fouled out, and two more finished the game with four fouls. Tompkins Cortland out-shot Finger Lakes, making 39% from the floor compared to 33%, and out-rebounded the Lakers 58 to 40, but the difference at the free throw line was too much to overcome.

Jaquella Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse) had 14 points and 12 rebounds, her sixth double-double in conference play. Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) also had a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

Strong First-Half Not Enough for Tompkins Cortland Women

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Playing for the first time in nearly a month, and against one of the strongest teams in the region, the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team put together a solid first-half before running out of steam Thursday. The Panthers lost at home to Jefferson Community College by a final of 85-59 in the Mid-State Athletic Conference opener for both teams. Tompkins Cortland drops to 2-7 overall while Jefferson improves to 9-2 overall.

The game was close early before Tompkins Cortland’s Taylor Policay (Lansing H.S./Lansing) led an 11-2 run by scoring six points in a two-minute span, giving the Panthers a lead midway through the half. The visitors answered, coming back to take the lead at 24-23 with eight minutes left in the half. The teams traded the lead twice the rest of the half before heading into the locker rooms with Jefferson up 37-35.

The first-half featured Tompkins Cortland out-rebounding Jefferson 25-17, making up for a sizeable disparity in shooting percentages (39.5% for Tompkins Cortland and 55.2% for Jefferson). Unfortunately for the home team, the second half saw the worse-case scenario for both stats – the rebounding advantage evaporated and the shooting grew even colder. By the time the final horn sounded, Tompkins Cortland had made just four field goals from the floor in the second half, going 4-for-32 (12.5%), and Jefferson had nearly closed the rebounding gap entirely, ending the game with Tompkins Cortland holding a slim 49-46 advantage on the boards. Meanwhile, Jefferson made 53.1% from the floor in the second half (54.1% for the game) to pull away for the comfortable win.

Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) and Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) each had 13 points while Meghan Ideman (Moravia H.S./Moravia) tossed in 10. Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had another huge night on the glass, grabbing 17 rebounds, the third-time this year she has pulled down a dozen or more boards.

Tompkins Cortland looks to get back on track Saturday at Broome Community College.


Ice Cold Second Half Costs Panthers

Saturday, December 14, 2013

Tompkins Cortland women's basketball

An eight-point halftime lead wasn’t enough for the Tompkins Cortland Community College women's basketball team Saturday as the Panthers fell victim to a rally by Hudson Valley Community College, losing by a final of 55-51. Tompkins Cortland drops to 2-6 overall and 2-4 in Region III. Hudson Valley improves to 4-5 overall and 4-4 in Region III.

The game started well for the home team. After Hudson Valley scored the first basket, Tompkins Cortland rattled off 12 straight, including five by Ruthanne Forehand (Groton H.S./Groton) and four by Chelsy Kern (Candor H.S./Candor). Tompkins Cortland had another run later, this one 14-3, to push the lead to 28-11 with five minutes left in the opening half. The visiting Vikings cut into the lead the rest of the way, helped in part by going 7-for-8 from the free throw line, ending the half with the home team ahead 33-25.

The second half was tough to watch for fans of the Tompkins Cortland offense. The Panthers made just 17% from the floor in the second half, going a combined 6-for-34. Despite the cold shooting, Tompkins Cortland still enjoyed a lead until the Vikings tied the score at 41-41 with 6:40 left in the game. A three-pointer by Jenna Bowman (Waverly H.S./Waverly) gave the lead back to the home team, but Hudson Valley continued to rally, taking the lead with a pair of free throws at 50-49 with 2:35 on the clock. Several missed chances over the next two minutes left the Panthers down 52-49 before Nicole Goodwin (Newfield H.S./Newfield) sank a pair of free throw to pull the score within one at 52-51 with 42 seconds left. Hudson Valley pushed the lead back to two with another free throw, but Tompkins Cortland wasn’t able to capitalize on the next possession, turning the ball back over to the Vikings. Hudson Valley sank two more free throws with 6.7 seconds left to seal the win.

Tompkins Cortland was done in by a combination of poor second-half shooting and a huge discrepancy at the free throw line. After a solid first half, the Panthers finished the game making just 28% from the field. At the line, Tompkins Cortland took 16 shots for the game, making 10. By comparison, Hudson Valley took 36 free throws, making 25. In the second half alone, Hudson Valley took 22 free throws, compared to just six for the home team.

Bowman ended the game as the lone Panther in double figures scoring, netting 12 points to go with four rebounds, four steals, and two assists. After scoring five points in the opening three minutes, Forehand finished with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, and two steals. Jaquela Lockwood (Fowler H.S./Syracuse) had seven points, nine rebounds, and two steals. Audrey Kate Ordway (Dryden H.S./Dryden) had a team-high 12 rebounds.

The 59-45 lead with nine minutes left slowly shrank over the next few minutes, with North Country getting to within five at 62-57 with under five minutes left.
