WNBA 2019 Semifinals: Connecticut and Washington Go Up 2-0

By Mel Greenberg @womhoopsgu

UNCASVILLE, Conn – Even with one win already in the hopper from his Connecticut Sun here that came Tuesday night in the opener of the WNBA best-of-five semifinals playoff series, coach Curt Miller continued to caution that the Los Angeles Sparks’ goal to achieve a split on the road was still very much alive.

And the third-seeded Sparks seemed well on the way achieving their mission Thursday night when they jumped from the opening tap to an 11-point lead early in the second quarter.

But that became the highlight for the visitors as the second-seeded Sun with some fierce rebounding to get second shots crept back into contention to head to the break with a 41-40 lead followed by their on-going second-half thunder.

This edition featured the Sun outscoring the Sparks 29-17. in the third quarter and 24-11 in the fourth for a lopsided 94-68 finish to send Los Angeles to the brink of elimination.

That could happen Sunday night (7 p.m., ESPN2) when the series resumes at Long Beach State’s Pyramid, due to the Staples Center being used for another event, though Los Angeles has been equally dominant at home.

If the Sparks extend to a Game 4, that happens back in Staples on Tuesday night, but in the worse case scenario for Connecticut, the Sun would get to return here to the Mohegan Sun Arena for a decisive Game 5 next Thursday night.

“I’m so proud of the energy and the effort,” Miller said. “We weren’t perfect at the offensive end but we got so many second-chance opportunity that we had a lead when it didn’t feel like a great first half offensively, and it was all because of rebounding.

“And that continued as we shored up some things.

“ To L.A’s credit, they came out and threw the first punch and I’m not sure we were ready for L.A.’s physicality. I thought the game finally settled in, we got a chance to relax and realized we had to match that physicality, we had to match that aggressiveness that they came out with and when we started to do that, the game settled in and we were able to do that and we kept our turnovers under control.

“I just felt our players played with a lot of energy in that second half and when we started to  lose our legs we were just better to play through the dfatigue than  they were.”

Meanwhile, down in the nation’s capital where the other semifinals series is being held, the top-seeded Washington Mystics, who won their opener by just a field goal, had more distance at th,e finish this time, beating the Las Vegas Aces 103-91 at their new Entertainment and Sports Arena in Congress Heights, just South of the District.

Earlier, prior to the tip Mystics star Elena Delle Donne of Wilmington and the University of Delaware was named the WNBA regular season Most Valuable Player, collecting all but two votes from a nationwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

It’s her second MVP honor, the first coming when she played for the Chicago Sky, making her the first in league history to win multiple awards with two different teams.

She was also the first in WNBA history to shoot 50/40/90 – 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and at least 90 percent at the line, though she actually shot 97.4 percent, a feat performed by only a small group of players on the NBA side.

After reaching the finals last season for the first time before swept 3-0 by the Seattle Storm, the Mystics are now trying to take that last step to a title, though either Connecticut or Los Angeles would be formidable from this side of the semifinals.

In the game in Washington, Emma Meesseman had 27 points, Latoya Sanders scored 20, Saint Joseph’s grad Natasha Cloud had 18 points and 11 assists while Delle Donne had 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Liz Cambage had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Aces, Kelsey Plum had 19 points and 10 assists, rookie Jackie Young out of Notre Dame scored 13, and Tamera Young scored 10 points.

Like Connecticut, Washington can also close things out on Sunday when that series shifts to Las Vegas, but if it extends, it will be on the same calendar as this one with Game 4 Tuesday and a potential decisive Game 5 back in the District of Columbia next Thursday.

The best of five finals opens a week from Sunday, Sept. 29 in the city of the highest seed, which depending on the match would be Washington on the first option, Connecticut on the second, and Los Angeles on the third.

That the Sun ruled the boards over a team with the likes of Candace Parker and Nneka Ogwumike surprised many with a WNBA playoff record 29 rebounds in the first half and an eventual 46-24 advantage, including 16-4 on the offensive glass.

Jonquel Jones, the former George Washington University star, had a career playoff record of 27 points to go with 13 rebounds of which seven were on the offensive boards for Connecticut.

 Maryland grad Alyssa Thomas continued to be a non-stop workhorse, scoring 12 points shooting 5-for-8 from the field and grabbing 13 rebounds while Courtney Williams out of South Florida continued to be electric with 25 points, including hitting more timely threes, 3-of-5 in this one.

Rachel Banham off the bench had 11 points, fueled by nailing 3-of-4 long-range attempts from beyond the arc.

On the Sparks’ side, while the guards shook off a non-productive opener with Chelsea Gray scoring 10 points and Riquana Williams scoring 14, Parker had but three points, making one of just three attempts from the field, though Nneka had 18 and her younger sister Chiney off the bench scored 10.

As for Gray’s performance, Miller noticed “she could turn around and go for 30 out in L.A., she’s that good.

Sparks first-year coach and former NBA star Derek Fisher said as the game went on his team started to lose his energy while the Sun had begun to increase theirs.

“It is Important that Game 2 is just Game 3,” he said looking to Sunday and compared to what had happened here. “The results in Game 1 and 2 have no relevance to how you play in Game 3.”

The Sparks, like the Sun were prior to the playoffs are 15-2 at home.

The Connecticut points in the playoffs as well as the winning differential are franchise records.

WNBA 2019 Semifinals: Despite Win Pressure Ramps Up For Connecticut Against L.A. in Game 2

By Mel Greenberg @womhoopsguru

UNCASVILLE, Conn. – Whatever pressure alleviated from finally winning a WNBA playoff game for the first time since 2012, beating the third-seeded Los Angeles Sparks 84-75 Tuesday night is replaced by more pressure as the Connecticut Sun head into Thursday night’s semifinal series second game at home at 6:30 p.m. EDT here on ESPN2 at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

The Sun, who spent most of that drought awaiting draft lottery placements until one-game knockouts by the Phoenix Mercury occurred here the previous two seasons, bolted to a 26-14 lead of 12 points early in the second quarter on the play of Maryland grad Alyssa Thomas, then fell to a 40-37 deficit at the half.

But all season in most games, Connecticut had powerful third quarters and then found ways to hold tight in the fourth, especially here where they went 15-2 to help finish second.

That earned the other double bye behind the Washington Mystics, who also won Tuesday edging the Las Vegas Aces 97-95 in their new Entertainment and Sports Arena in the Congress Heights section of the nation’s capital.

Those teams also play their Game at 8:30 p.m. Thursday night on ESPN2.

In the third quarter here on Tuesday, the Sun opened with a 9-0 spurt and after finishing the period ahead 59-58 moved somewhat into a comfort zone the final ten minutes answering Los Angeles threats on the way to a win.

One major statistic was the Sparks committing 17 turnovers to just nine by Connecticut.

Most people had picked the Sparks to take the series causing the slick Sun marketing folks to take up a DisrespeCT  mantra jersey similar to the Underdogs approach the NFL Philadelphia Eagles harbored on the way to their first Super Bowl win two seasons ago.

Thus, powerful as Los Angeles is with a roster containing former Tennessee super star Candace Parker, the Ogwumike sisters of Nneka and former Sun No. 1 pick Chiney, and Chelsea Gray, the opener was a game Connecticut, idle since the season ended 12 days ago, had to have considering the Sparks’ performance at home where Game 3 in the series is played Sunday followed by a Game 4 if necessary next Tuesday.

Los Angeles arrived here from home where after holding a first-round bye, the Sparks ousted the defending champion but injury riddled Seattle Storm 92-69 on Sunday.

If the Sun win Thursday night, they will have two chances out West to close out the Sparks and advance to the finals but also will be assured a potential decisive Game 5 to be played here next Thursday if they don’t win out West.

“With our core group being together for four years and coming up short in those second rounds, winning that first game is a boost in confidence and a measuring stick,” said Connecticut coach and general manager Curt Miller at Wednesday’s practice.

 “And we get to go back into the film room and talk about what we didn’t do well and what we can get better at and what we did execute well, which we know is only going to be harder next time.

“But ultimately, and you hear this in a pro basketball series, you got to take home court and you got to really protect it because L.A. came here to split, it didn’t matter if it was (Game) 1 or (Game) 2. 

“With 14 in a row at home in Los Angeles, they feel good about themselves if they can split. So Game 2 becomes even more magnified for both of us.”

In Tuesday’s game, Thomas shot 9-for-17 and collected 22 points besides grabbing 10 rebounds and had four steals while the Sparks’ Parker was 10-for-14 overall from the field, including 3-of-five three-balls for 24 points and blocked six shots besides grabbing 10 rebounds.

Of those two, Miller commented after the game, “For a long, long time, Candace Parker has been by far the best facilitating power forward in the league. 

“The emergence of Alyssa over the last couple of years gives argument that she’s the new wave of power forward facilitators. We got the full display (tonight). I hope the fans realize what they’re witnessing.”

As for those fans, though not a sellout crowd, the place was pretty loaded and energized with an attendance figure of 7,102.

Behind Thomas, the Sun had a balanced attack with three others in double figures, Duke grad Jasmine Thomas with 19 points, including a trio of connected three-pointers; Courtney Williams, the South Florida grad with another timely performance on offense scoring 15 points and George Washington grad Jonquel Jones with 16.

Nneka Ogwumike was the only other Sparks player in double figures with 20 points.

Miller was pleased with the job Connecticut did defensing Gray, limiting her and Riquina Williams to four points each.

In assessing his team’s loss and anything new done by Connecticut, Derek Fisher, the former NBA player who is the Sparks’ first year coach, said at Wednesday’s practice, “Connecticut was who they have been all season.

“They played hard, they played with energy, and they played for each other. I don’t think that’s going to change tomorrow night.

“A lot of times in these situations, it’s not so much about trying to adjust what the opponent might do, but being really strong and resolute in who you are and be better in a lot of areas you can control.”

Limiting turnovers of the unforced variety would be one thing that could be on the list of reductions while getting that third scoring option would be looked for as an increase, though Fisher said the team “just didn’t make shots.”

Noted Parker, “If we spread that third option around three people and they are good quality shots, I would take those over four double digit scores.

GURU NOTES: Rob Knox was scheduled at last notice to be on hand at the Mystics game where it’s been reported over night to no one’s surprise that Wilmington native and former Delaware star Elena Delle Donne will be formally presented as the league MVP prior to the tipoff, where the Washington star becomes the first in the WNBA to earn MVP honors with two different squads.

She was a past winner playing for the Chicago Sky.

Former La Salle star and South Jersey native Cheryl Reeve, who is recent years has been both the Minnesota coach and GM has been named the WNBA executive of the year, a relatively new award voted by a panel of one executive from each of the 12 WNBA teams.

The postseason media panel officially named Phoenix guard Leilani Mitchell most improved, her second award making her the first to be a multiple winner in the category from the group of sportswriters and broadcasters. 

Previously, a 2010 recipient playing for the New York Liberty, who on Tuesday claimed the overall No. 1 pick in next spring’s draft, Mitchell received 27 of 43 votes.

Dan Hughes: A Champ in All Respects

By Andy Lipton
 
 One of my most favorite sports stories of 2018 was Coach Dan Hughes winning his first WNBA championship as head coach at the age of 63.

.   Dan, who seemingly left coaching when he left the San Antonio Stars in 2016, is a long-time coaching veteran who started his  career back in the early 1980s.
 
He has coached more games than anybody else in the WNBA at over 560.

  Three of his previous WNBA assistant coaches went on to win at least one WNBA championship as head coach: Brain Agler, Sandy Brondello, and Cheryl Reeve.
 
In my few interactions with Dan through the years, he was always helpful, kind and humble.
 
Right after his Seattle Storm won the WNBA championship last year, and he was interviewed, you could see how touched he was as he choked up a bit.
 
Dan proved Leo Durocher’s famous aphorism wrong.  Nice guys do finish first.
 
Hughes took over a Storm team that had some serious talent, but finished under .500 the previous two seasons with first-round play-off exits.
 
So I wanted to know the things Hughes did as coach for that 2018 championship team.
 
I reached out to him in April before the WNBA Draft and told him I would wait for him to come to New York to talk to him in person.  

That would be much later, when in August the Storm would come to New York to play the Liberty.  But I would wait.
 
Not long after the WNBA Draft, Dan was diagnosed with cancer and underwent successful surgery. 

 He left the team for a while and then returned to coaching the Storm to a sixth seed in the playoffs where they will open defense of their title Wednesday in a one-and-done first rounder against the Minnesota Lynx storied powerhouse 

 So it is the year 2019 that has become the most significant for Dan Hughes and his loved ones.
 
Given the type of person Dan is, he met with me for about 45 minutes a few weeks ago.  Not only was he so gracious with his time, but he openly shared his feelings and experiences.
 
The Guru has posted through his twitter account @womhoopsguru  a nine-segment series of videos, none of the interview segments more than a little over two minutes each.

  These videos will focus on the 2018 Championship Season.

  Topics include: getting back into coaching, how Hughes evaluated the team before the season began, what was his evaluation, what he implemented, delegation to staff, and evaluation of new personnel that resulted in significant acquisitions.

Philly WBB Summer League: Radley Carries Sky Blue/Holy Family to Title Over Defending Champs Maroon/USciences

By Mel Greenberg @womhoopsguru and Bob Heller

HATBORO, Pa. — New Holy Family coach and former Tigers star Bernadette Laukaitis has yet to take the sidelines in game action but she already has an impressive title contingent since her hire last spring off Ivy co-champion Penn coach Mike McLaughlin’s staff.

Under the designation as Team Sky Blue, the third seed, the D2-Tigers in a gritty tightly-fought affair knocked off the defending champion Maroon squad, the fourth-seed, also known as D2-USciences 55-50 to capture the 2019 edition of the Philadelphia/Suburban NCAA-Certified Women’s Basketball League Tuesday night here at Kelly Bolish Gym home of the AAU Renegades.

Senior Elizabeth Radley out of Bishop Eustace hit a three-ball with 8.9 seconds left in regulation to break a 50-50 tie and become the only player to hit the nightly 20 points or more citation to finish with 21 points.

She hit a pair of foul shots on an ensuing possesion after her trey to clinch the win.

It’s a first for Holy Family, who went 7-2 on the nine-game schedule from mid-June till late July, since the league moved in 2010 from Northeast High, not far from the Tigers’ campus, to the current site.

It also made it a sweep of the Devils, who also went 7-2, counting the earlier contest, a 56-55 win that saw Sky Blue rally from 13 down in the third quarter and nine at the start of the fourth.

That win as a tie-break landed the Tigers the third seed and kept them out of the path of top-seeded Team Black, also known as D2-Jefferson, which fell to USciences narrowly on July 9 and then lost again Thursday night in overtime in the semifinals.

In both games mediocre shooting, especially at the foul line Tuesday, cost the Devils at the hands of the Tigers.

In Thursday’s semifinal doubleheader Sky Blue avenged a loss to second-seeded Red, the combo of primarily D2-West Chester and D3-Gettysburg, to stay alive.

Longtime commissioner David Kessler said afterwards Tuesday he could not remember when the No. 1 seed had not made it to the title round.

A year ago Black went unbeaten to the championship night before losing losing to Maroon, whose only loss had been to the Rams.

 USciences was playing in its fifth championship.

“I’m proud of them,” said Laukaitis, who watched the game from the spectator section as did Devils coach Jackie Hartzell, who just returned from vacation.

So should be former Holy Family coach and former Temple star Melissa Dunne, who was let go after last season, but is now an aide on Saint Joseph’s coach Cindy Griffin’s staff and is responsible for the Tigers roster that took the floor here Tuesday.

Just as last summer’s result was also an omen to the ongoing winter rivalry between USciences and Jefferson in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, so should Tuesday’s game serve similarly, considering  Holy Family also competes in the CACC.

The Devils and Rams both made it to Top 10 weekly rankings last season.

Bob has all the details of the game in a bit.

Meanwhile two things to take note looking ahead.

In the offseason the commissioner will be looking for the first time for sponsorships in an effort to reduce registration costs and perhaps get the 10 team operation the past two summers back up to 12 or 13 teams.

Secondly, because only three D-1 players applied, one of which never made it to the floor due to some physical problems, the commissioner in an effort to reduce costs and avoid problems of bureaucracy may not seek NCAA certification.

Certainly, the league showed much parity despite the lack of what used to be a large influx from local Big 5 schools.

Of course the reasons for the drop were many from geography, the numbers who take summer classes conflicting with Tuesday and Thursday game nights, those who take jobs, and of course out-of-town enrollees who go home in the interim.

But the commissioner is known as a kind person, so this is not yet a final decision should a sudden uptick of interest from the D-1 crowd emerge.

Now, here’s Bob with the title action:

Championship: #3 Sky Blue 55, #4 Maroon 50

The Philadelphia/Suburban Women’s Basketball Summer League crowned a new champion Tuesday night as #3 seed Team Sky Blue (aka D2 Holy Family University) handed defending league champion and #4 seed Team Maroon (aka D2 USciences) a 55-50 loss in the league championship game Tuesday night at Kelly Bolish Gym in Hatboro, Pa.
 
The Maroon (USciences) squad was making their fifth consecutive appearance in the championship game while Sky Blue (Holy Family) was making their first since the league moved to its current Hatboro location.
 
Sky’s Liz Radley sank a three-point basket with 8.9 seconds left, breaking a 50-50 tie en route to her team’s first championship.

  Radley was the only player on both sides to reach double figures, scoring seven points in the final 1:16 to finish with 21 on the night.
 
Angelai Hayes and Casey Schweitzer added nine points apiece to bolster the Sky Blue offense.
 
Jordan Vitelli led Maroon with nine points while Kendall Keyes and Irisa Ye added eight points apiece.
 
The Sky Blue squad was successful in three aspects of the game that the Maroon squad usually is the better team:  three-point shooting, defense and free throws.  

Sky’s defense held Maroon to just three three-point field goals with the third one coming in the final seconds.

  Meanwhile their offense connected on ten three point shots, accounting for 30 of their 55 points. 

 Sky also shot 9-16 from the free throw line while Maroon was uncharacteristically off from the charity stripe, making just five of 15 shots.
 
Radley’s basket midway through the fourth quarter broke a 39-39 tie and gave Sky a slim two point lead.  

It also marked the 16th lead change of the contest.

  Maroon went on to tie the game three more times before coming up short at the final buzzer.
 
Irisa Ye’s layup with 1:02 left tied the game at 47-47. 

Dana Dockery put Sky back on top with two free throws and Radley added another with 25.7 seconds left to give Sky a 50-47 lead.   

Following a Maroon time out, Jess Huber sank a long three-pointer, her only long field goal of the game to tie the score for the eight time at 50-50 and set the stage for the final points.  
 
Sky looked to work the ball inside but found Radley just beyond the arc on the left side for an opener jumper and the eventual game winner.

  This time Maroon couldn’t convert and Radley added two more free throws with 0.4 left on the clock to seal the win.
 
The five point margin was the largest lead of the game for either team. 

 Maroon led by three twice during the game, both in the first quarter while Sky Blue led by no more than three on six occasions.

Philly WBB Summer League: Under Seeds Maroon (USciences), Sky Blue (Holy Family) To Title Round

By Mel Greenberg @womhoopsguru and Bob Heller

HATBORO, Pa. — In a rarity, the regular-season ending No. 1 seed, which for the second straight year was Team Black (8-1), also known as D2-Jefferson, will not appear in the title game Tuesday night competing for the championship of the Philadelphia/Suburban NCAA-Certified Women’s Basketball Summer League here at Kelly Bolish Gym, home of the AAU Renegades.

For that matter, neither will No. 2 seed, which was Team Red, a combination of  D2-West Chester and D3-Gettysburg (8-1) be around.

But the defending champion Team Maroon (7-2), also known as the D2 Usciences group, has survived to compete from the fourth seed slot and has made it to the last night of the playoffs for the fifth straight year.

And on the other side in what has been one of the surprises of the summer, third-seeded Team Sky Blue, also known as D2-Holy Family (7-2), will be Maroon’s opponent in the showdown at 7 p.m. on Court 1.

By seeds it was a night of upsets but with the semifinals concluded Thursday night, all four teams, counting the playoffs, had lost two games each, all suffering setbacks within the group.

The evening began and ended with the usual tightly-fought ongoing rivalry between Jefferson and USciences extend into overtime until the No. 4 Devils made it a summer sweep of the No. 1 Rams 60-52 after earlier beating Jefferson 73-64 in their regular-season matchup July 9 in what was also the 2018 league title game showdown last year.

Black went unbeaten through the summer of 2018 until Maroon topped it in the championship.

Then the duo continued with their local rivalry in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) into the winter, each earning Top 10 rankings and losing to each other in their home-and-home series while Jefferson also suffered one other lost.

But the CACC title game saw Jefferson beat USciences by a point in overtime. 

Each then played in the D2 regional at USciences, Jefferson eliminated the first night and USciences falling the next round.

Tuesday night, however, will still be a meeting of CACC opponents since Sky Blue, which took down Red 63-59 to avenge one of two season losses, 52-46 on July 16, is also in the conference.

The Tigers had trailed by as many as 10 points in the third quarter.

 The other Holy Family loss was to Black 74-48 on opening night but early in the summer, Sky Blue took down Maroon 56-55 on June 25.

 Red also upset Maroon 73-65 on opening night and  continued unbeaten until Black beat Red 67-62 in overtime on July 18.

All that created the paths into Tuesday’s pairings since Black’s head-to-head win over Red made them first in the playoffs dropping Red to only second since each had beaten Sky Blue and Maroon.

Then Sky Blue’s early upset of Maroon became the tie break into their 7-2 finish to place Sky Blue third and Maroon fourth.

Despite Maroon’s experience nothing is a given going into the championship.

 The happiest person in the stands these past several weeks has been Bernadette Laukaitis, the former longtime assistant to Michael McLaughlin at Penn and at Holy Family, her alma mater, who became the Tigers’ new coach after the season..

Under NCAA regulations, D2 and D3 coaches are allowed to watch their winter teams play and furthermore those squads can compete as complete or roster-dominated units.

Black’s Tom Shirley was around most of the summer as was USciences Jackie Hartzell, although Thursday she was away as part of this week’s personal vacation.

Meanwhile after last Thursday’s five-player explosion, all from the same game, in reaching the nightly special 20-points-or-more citation, just two hit the mark on Tuesday.

 Both came from the first game as USciences’ Irisa Ye had 29 points, fueled by three three-balls, for the night’s best performance, just two ahead of Black’s Alynna Williams, who had 27 off five three-pointers.

Now here’s Bob with the recap of each of the semifinals.

Recaps:

#4 Maroon  60  #1 Black  52 (Overtime)
 
 In a rematch of last year’s championship game, Maroon (D2-USciences) and Black (D2-Jefferson)  played what was a typical matchup between these two squads who are also rivals in the regular season:  low scoring, few fouls and good defense. 

So much so that the two teams needed extra time to decide who would advance to Tuesday’s championship game.  
 
Maroon’s Irisa Ye sank four free throws in the final 31 seconds of the overtime to propel the Devils to a 60-52 win over Black.  

This will be Maroon’s fifth straight trip to the league championship game.
 
Ye led all scorers with 29 points, including three three-point baskets and an 8-8 performance from the free throw line, while  Jordan Vitelli and Jess Huber added 11 and 10 points respectively.
 
Alynna Williams led Black with 27 points while Bridget Arcidiacono chipped in nine.
 
While Ye closed out the game with her free throws in the overtime it was Vitelli and Huber that got the offense going in the extra period.  

Vitelli opened the scoring with her third three-point basket of the game, recording the eighth lead change of the contest and giving Maroon a 53-50 advantage.  

Williams countered with a quick foul line jumper to pull Black within one 53-52.  

Huber added her second three-ball of the game with 1:08  to make the score 56-52 and after a defensive stop Black was forced to foul, sending Ye to the line for the first time with 31 seconds left and again with 20 seconds. 

 Ye made all four to secure the win.
 
The fourth quarter also belonged to Ye as the trend of neither team pulling away from each other continued. 

 Neither team led by more than two points throughout the period and Ye scored eight of her team’s nine points including the basket that eventually sent the game into overtime with the score knotted at 50-50.
 
Black held their biggest lead of five points early in the game as they jumped out to a 7-2 advantage and led 15-12 after one quarter.  
 
Maroon took their first lead of the game at 20-18 as Ye scored the team’s first eight points of the period.  

Taylor Hamm’s layup on a great pass from Shannon May gave Maroon their largest lead of the half a 26-21.

 Arcidiacono hit a three from just inside the half court line at the buzzer to cut Maroon’s lead to one at the half 26-25.
 
Williams scored ten points in the third quarter as the lead again changed hands several times and was tied on five occasions. 

 When the dust settled Black was ahead 43-41 as the two teams headed into the fourth quarter, a quarter that neither team scored more than ten points (9-7 Maroon) and led to the overtime.
 
 #3  Sky Blue 63   #2 Red  55
 
 In the second semi-final game of the night, #3 seed Sky Blue (D2-Holy Family) rallied from a ten point third quarter deficit to defeat #2 seed  Red (D2 West Chester/D3-Gettysburg)  63-55 to advance to the championship game against #4 Maroon (CACC rival USciences).
 
Sky Blue had a well-balanced scoring effort, putting four players in double figures led by Dana Dudley’s 14 points.

  Liz Radley, in her first game over two weeks following an injury added 13 as did Monee Moore.  Anjelai Hayes chipped in ten.
 
Red, who had only six players available for the game, also placed four in double figures with Leah Johnson and Avery Bennett scoring 13 apiece.  

Gabby Troisi added 11 and Fiona Aromondo chipped in ten.
 
Red jumped out to an early 6-1 lead and led 11-5 before baskets by Dockery, Moore and Casey Schweitzer tied the score at 11-11 heading into the second quarter.
 
A three-ball from Aromondo and two baskets from Johnson gave Red an 18-11 lead but Sky Blue countered with a 9-2 flourish to tie the game at 20-20.  

Red closed out the quarter on a 12-4 run to lead by eight at the half 32-24.
 
Bennett’s basket to start the third quarter gave Red their biggest lead of the game at 34-24.  

Sky Blue then kicked it up a notch with a 15-4 uprising to take their first lead of the game at 39-38 with 3:59 left in the period. 

 Red came back and tied the game twice in the final two minutes of the quarter before Megan O’Connell sank a three-ball to put Sky Blue up 46-43  heading into the final period.
 
Sky Blue scored four of the first five field goals in the fourth quarter to open up a 54-45 lead as it appeared that Red might be running out of gas with only six players available.

  They still trailed 56-47 with 5:10 remaining when they embarked on one final push, outscoring Sky Blue 8-1 over the next two minutes to pull within two 57-55 with three minutes left.  

Mary DeSimone had all eight of the Red team’s points (two three pointers and a two-pointer).
 
Dockery and Radley then scored on back-to-back possessions to make it a two possession game at 61-55.

   Dockery added another basket with 1:20 left to round out the scoring.

Philly WBB Summer League: Top Four Seeds Advance to Semifinals

By Mel Greenberg @womhoopsguru and Bob Heller

HATBORO, Pa. —  After separating themselves by two games from the rest of the ten teams in the final regular season standings, the top four squads in the Philadelphia/Suburban NCAA-Certified Women’s Basketball Summer League advanced out of the playoff quarterfinals here Tuesday night at Kelly Bolish Gym, home of the AAU Renegades.

But the job was was easily done by just two of the four -  the defending champion and fourth-seeded Maroon squad, also known as D2-USciences, which handled fifth-seeded Purple, also known as the D2-Alums of East Stroudsburg, 68-56, while top-seeded Black, also known as D2-Jefferson, put away ninth-seeded Kelly Green, also known as the combination of second-seeded Millersville and D3-Moravian, 87-57.

But second-seeded Red, also known as the combination of D2-West Chester and D3-Gettysburg, had to hold off a late rally from seventh-seeded Lime Green, also known as D2-Chestnut Hill, before emerging with a 57-53 win, while third-seeded Sky Blue, also known as D2-Holy Family, nearly got upset at the finish before eliminating Royal Blue, also known as the combination of D2-Kutztown and D3-Salisbury 58-56.

On Thursday the four winners will return for the semifinals when Black (8-1) and Maroon (7-2), those two powerful rivals from the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, repeat last season’s title matchup at 7 p.m. on Court 1 followed  at 8:15 by Red (8-1) meeting Sky Blue (7-2).

Maroon, which ruined Black’s perfect record in the title game last season, gave Jefferson it’s only loss this summer to date, 73-64, on July 9 after the week-long July 4 holiday break, strengthening from some struggles in the first few weeks of play.

Red beat Sky Blue narrowly, 63-59, on July 18th.

Kelly Green had upset Orange in a scoring festival on Thursday but had its season ended when Black made it a sweep adding to a 70-50 win on June 20, the second night of the regular season.

Maroon, now advancing to its fifth straight summer league semifinals, beat Purple, 63-59, on July 18.

In their first meeting, Red beat Lime Green, 61-52, on July 23 while Sky Blue’s season-ending sweep of Royal Blue included an earlier 74-49 win on July 16.

After five players, all from the same game, hit the magic individual 20-or-more points performance, third best nightly total on the season, in rhe quarterfinals, just one got the job done Tuesday.

 Sky Blue’s Anjelai Hayes scored 20 against Royal Blue, helped by shooting 8-for-10 from the line.

While the Thursday matchup of Red and Sky Blue insures a new team in the title round, there is quite a bit of history in the other game between Black and Maroon.

This summer’s result was already mentioned while last year, Maroon’s lone loss was to Black before gaining revenge in the championship.

Last winter in NCAA D2 competition, Maroon and Black beat each other during the season, it was Maroon’s only loss while Black lost just one other game, but Black came back to edge Maroon by a point in overtime in the CACC championship.
    
Now, here’s Bob with the recaps of Tuesday’s quarterfinals.

Recaps:
 
#3 Sky Blue  58  #6  Royal Blue   56
 
 Third seed Sky Blue (D-II Holy Family) recovered from a flat first quarter and held off a late run by the sixth seed Royal Blue (D-II Kutztown/D-III Salisbury) to earn a 58-56 win and advance to the semi-final of the Philadelphia /Suburban Women’s Basketball Summer League Championships.
 
Anjelai Hayes and Monee Moore reached double figures and were key players down the stretch for Sky Blue.  

Hayes scored 20 points while Moore chipped in 16. 

 Royal placed four players in double figures led by Annie Whalen and Karen Lapkiewicz with 14 apiece.  

Casey Remolde added 12 while Alyssa Bondi made three three-point baskets and finished with 11 points.
 
Royal put the first points on the board and finished the first quarter with 8-0 flourish to lead by 11, 23-12. 

 Lapkiewicz’s three-ball to open the second quarter pushed the lead to 26-12 before Sky started to chip away at the lead.  

Sky clawed within two on a 16-4 run capped by a Moore free throw before Whalen sank a three-pointer to push the lead to five.  

Jennifer Kremp’s basket at the buzzer cut Royal’s lead to 33-30 at the half.
 
Hayes and Moore each sank a pair of free throws to open the third quarter, giving Sky their first lead of the game 34-33 49 seconds into the period.  

Two more free throws from Moore capped a 9-2 run to open the quarter, giving Sky a 39-35 lead. 

Royal came back to tie the game at 41-41  and reclaimed the lead as Bondi sank three three-pointers in a span of 1:12 to open up a 50-42 advantage with just 1:38 left.  

Hayes and Casey Schweitzer scored to pull Sky within four, 50-46 heading into the fourth quarter.
 
Moore’s basket with 3:05 left in regulation pulled Sky within one 53-52 and following a defensive stop, Hayes sank two free throws with 2:30 left to give Sky a 54-53 lead.  

Both teams exchanged baskets and Sky still led 56-55 as the game entered the final minute.  

Royal had three opportunities in the final minute to tie or take the lead but was unable to convert.  

Forced to foul, Hayes made one of two free throws with 9.1 seconds to give Sky a three-point lead 58-55.  

Royal’s last possession resulted in one made free throw as they fell short 58-56.
 
#1 Black   87   #9 Kelly Green  57
 
Top seed Black (D-II Jefferson) had little trouble advancing to the semi-finals jumping out to a double digit lead early en route to an 87-57 blowout win over ninth seed Kelly Green (D-II Millersville/D-III Moravian).
 
Haley Meinel led four players in double figures for Black with 17 points.  Alynna Williams added 15 while Emily Keehfuss chipped in 14.   Sabria Lytes rounded out Black’s double figure scorers with ten points.
 
Raven James, a Division I player from Villanova University led Kelly Green with 15 points.  Jessica McKenzie and 13 while Mia Leonard and Ali Higgins chipped in 12 and 11 respectively.
 
Williams opened the game with a three-point basket and it was all Black from there, building a double-digit lead with an 8-2 run to close out the first quarter, 25-12.

 Black pushed their lead to 19 midway through the second quarter and held a 44-26 advantage at halftime.
 
Black outscored Kelly Green 23-11 in the third quarter to lead 67-37. 

 Kelly opened the fourth quarter with a 12-5 run to cut the lead to 23, 72-49 but that would be as close as they would come as Black finished with an 15-8 spurt to finish with the 30-point win.
 
#2 Red  57   #7  Lime Green  53
 
 Second seed Red (DII West Chester/D-III Gettysburg) survived a scare from seventh seed Lime Green (D-II Chestnut Hill) as they eked out a 57-53 win to advance to the Thursday’s semi-finals.
 
Katie Fisher and Leah Johnson led Red with 12 points apiece.  Mary DeSimone added  seven.
 
Cassie Sebold turned in another solid performance, leading all scorers in the game with 17 points (eight in the final 2:15). Erin Doherty added 12 while Lauren Crim chipped in ten.  
 
Red scored the first five points of the game and led 13-10 before Lime Green put together seven straight points to take a 17-13 lead at the end of one quarter.  
 
Offense was hard to come by in the second quarter as both teams combined to score just nine points with Lime Green taking a 22-17 lead at halftime.
 
Gabby Troisi opened the second half with a three-ball, cutting the lead to two as Red slowly chipped away, tying the game at 29-29 and then taking a 30-29 lead on a free throw by Avery Bennett with 3:39 left. 

 Red added five more points to cap an 8-0 flourish and take a 35-29 lead before Crim’s two free throws broke the streak.  

Bennett pushed the lead back to six with four straight points and Johnson’s long three pointer as time was expiring gave Red a 42-35 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
 
Now it was Lime Green’s turn to chip away at the lead.  Doherty cut the Red lead to three 48-45 with a basket with four minutes left and after a Red basket from Carly Rice.  

 Sebold again made it a one possession game with a basket with 2:15 left , 50-47.  

Another Red basket pushed the lead back to five by Sebold again responded first with a basket and then with a free throw to pull her team within two 52-50 with 1:19 left.  
 
Johnson missed two free throws with 47.3 seconds left, giving Lime Green a chance to tie.

  Red however produced the defensive stop and Lime was forced to foul.  This time, Johnson made two from the charity stripe with 29 seconds left and then Bennett added another with 14.8 seconds left.   Sebold sank a three-pointer in the final seconds, pulling Lime within two, 55-53.  Rice scored with time expiring to give Red a 57-53 win.  
 
 #4 Maroon 68   #5 Purple  56
 
Defending league champion and #4 seed Maroon (D-II USciences)  turned up the defense after a sluggish first quarter and eliminated fifth seed Purple (D-II East Stroudsburg alumni) 68-56 to advance to the semi-final round for the fifth consecutive year.
 
Jess Huber and Isla Brennan led Maroon with 16 points apiece with both players connecting on three three-point buckets.  Taylor Hamm added 11 points while Jordan Vitelli chipped in nine.
 
Emma Stanfield and Sydney Blum had 12 points apiece to lead Purple while Melissa Poderis chipped in nine.
 
Blum opened the game with a three-point basket as Purple  jumped out to an early 10-2 lead and closed out the first quarter leading 15-8.
 
Maroon tightened up the defense as the second quarter opened, holding Purple scoreless for the first five minutes as they went on a 16-0 tear to take a 24-15 lead. 

 Two free throws from Blum broke the string with 4:53 left in the period.  Purple added two more free throws before getting their first field goal of the quarter with 1:53 left, ending an 8-2 run by Maroon.  

Courtney Brown’s three point field goal as the quarter was ending cut Maroon’s lead to 34-24 at halftime.
 
Huber scored the first five points of the third quarter as Maroon opened a 39-24 lead.  

Maroon led by as many as 16 in the period before Purple cut the gap to 12 by the end of the period 51-39.
 
Dana Bandurick’s two free throws pulled Purple within ten 51-41.  

Maroon followed with four straight baskets to take their biggest lead of the game at 59-41 before Tyeca Reviere broke the string with a layup at the 6:23 mark.  

 Maroon maintained their double digit lead the rest of the way with Purple coming within ten late in the period, 65-55 before both teams closed out the scoring from the free throw line.
