Kuester Keeps Hawks Unbeaten As Does Delle Donne For Delaware

By Mel Greenberg

When St. Joseph’s junior Katie Kuester shot her way to the top of the Philadelphia Dept. of Recreation NCAA Women’s Sunmer League this past season it seemed only a matter of time she might do likewise for the Hawks this winter.

Kuester, the daughter of NBA Detroit Pistons coach John Kuester, a former assistant with the 76ers, has gotten there quickly.

She scored a career-high 16 points Saturday as St. Joseph’s stayed perfect at 3-0 after a 64-50 win over UMBC in Baltimore.

The Hawks excelled at both ends of the floor, holding UMBC to 25.8 percent from the floor defensively.

“We certainly are consistent,” St. Joseph’s coach Cindy Griffin said. “We’ve been scoring in the 60s and holding teams in the 50s,

“This is a much better start so far than we’ve had the last several seasons and a lot of these games are now paybacks.

Michelle Baker had 12 of her 15 points in the second half and Kelly Cavallo grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds,

The Hawks are back in town Tuesday but will remain on their extended road trip with a trip to Drexel.

Delaware Fires Past Yale

No sophomore jinx so far for Delaware all-American Elena Delle Donne, who followed up opening scoring games of 36 and 34 points Saturday with 41 in a 79-61 win over Yale in New Haven, Connecticut.

Danielle Parker had 11 points and 11 rebounds for the unbeaten Blue Hens (3-0). The Bulldogs fell to 1-2.

Sarah Acker, a transfer whose college career began at St. Joseph’s and who was the Big Five freshman of the year several seasons ago, became eligible this week and had four points and nine rebounds in 27 minutes of action.

Delaware is back home in the Bob Carpenter Center Tuesday night in Newark against St. Francis, Pa., the defending Northeast Conference tournament champions.

Kimmel Torches Oral Roberts

Junior forward Lindsey Kimmel, a transfer from Temple, had 20 points and connected on six three-pointers to spur Villanova (3-1) to a 61052 victory over Oral Roberts (2-3) on the second and final day of the Navy Classic in Annapolis, Md.

Jesse Carey had 11 points and dealt five assists while Megan Pearson scored 10 points.

Villanova next will host Patriot League champion Lehigh on Tuesday.

Holy Family Conquers New England

Despite the absence of Catherine Carr, who suffered an ankle injury in Tuesday’s win over Kutztown, the Tigers rallied Saturday for a 61-55 nonconference win over American International in Springfield, Mass.

Samantha Thompson, a graduate student, had a game-high 24 points for the Tigers (3-0) who handed the home team its first defeat in four games.

Erin Mann had 20 points and eight rebounds.

The Tigers travel to Millersville on Tuesday.
