Guru's Philly Summer League Report: Lime Green Fends Off Black To Earn Three-Peat Title
A consultation with the commissioner, currently sound asleep, will rectify the shortfall and the Guru will note in this space and on his twitter @womhoopsguru when the correction is made.)
By Mel Greenberg
HATBORO, Pa. -- Unbeaten all season and thru Tuesday's result, two-time defending champion Lime Green was contested in Game 2 of the best-of-three finals by second-seeded Black until a key three-pointer by Jenn Prine in the final minutes sent the squad on to a 66-56 victory Wednesday night and a three-peat title in the Philadelphia/Suburban Women's NCAA Summer Basketball League.
Prine, a recent graduate of Shepherd University two months ago, had only seven points but her shot helped rescue a Lime Green team that opened the finals Tuesday night with an 85-54 victory over Black that followed a regular-season 76-57 win over the same team at the Kelly Bolish Gymnasium, home of the AAU Renegades in Lower Bucks County.
Lime Green's victory avoided being extended by Black to a decisive Game 3, which had been scheduled, if necessary, to be played Thursday night.
The triumph also brought an end to the five-year summer career of recent Saint Joseph's graduate Katie Kuester, arguably the mvp of the 2012 competition with four performances in which she scored 20 or more points.
Ashey Morris, the 2008 Temple graduate on Cardinal Red, also had four games of 20 or more points.
No one on Black nor Lime Green reached that total Wednesday but Lime Green, which went 15-0, including a four-game sweep of playoffs competition, seemed on the way to another scoring explosion with an early 10-point lead until Black rallied and reduced the deficit to as narrow as three points in a second half that was played most of the way with the two teams separated by single digits.
Following the outcome, longtime commissioner David Kessler, who retired from the Dept. of Recreation in 2009 but has continued keeping the league afloat, emceed the awards ceremony and paid tribute to Kuester for her contributions.
This was the third season the league, consisting of 12 teams this summer, competed in the suburbs just outside Philadelphia after a long stint at Northeast High in the city.
Lime Green had been as dominate as some of the better WNBA teams as well as the USA Women's Squad that will play Australia in the Olympics semifinals Thursday in London.
Before Wednesday, the only other scare occured in Thursday's semifinals a week ago when Lime Green emerged in the closing minutes with a 65-62 escape from Cardinal Red, featuring Morris, the former Temple star.
"We knew they weren't going to let us beat them by 30 (points) again," Kuester said of the Black squad that went 9-2 in the regular season and tied Hunter Green for second but won the second seed on a head-to-head tiebreaker. "And they have such a talented team. They have girls from all over on that team.
"But we played hard and we have a good group of girls and it makes it fun when you have a group like this," Kuester added.
Black advanced to the finals beating Hunter Green again last Thursday.
Kuester is headed for the staff of Lehigh University in the Patriot League in Bethlehem, Pa., where she will serve as director of basketball operations.
Another former Big Five great is also going on the Mountain Hawks staff of Sue Troyan in former Villanova star Laura Kurz, who has played in the summer league. She will be an assistant coach.
Kuester will also pursue a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership at Lehigh.
Under NCAA rules, as a paid employee of a Division I school Kuester is not allowed to compete in these official summer sanctioned leagues.
But she said after Tuesday's game that she is ready for retirement, which also means the spectator retirement of her parents John and Tricia Kuester, who have been at most games of her career.
The exception for her dad has been due to his current role as an assistant Los Angeles Lakers coach in the NBA while previously serving as a head coach in Detroit and as an assistant of the 76ers, among other jobs.
The family is moving to North Carolina in the Triangle Area where Duke, UNC and North Carolina State compete, though Katie, of course, will remain up North in her new job.
Though she won't play, Kuester is accompanying Saint Joseph's when the Hawks leave this weekend on an exhibition trip to Ireland. Five players on the active Saint Joseph's roster for this winter competed on two teams in the summer and played well enough that the performances could serve as an omen for Saint Joseph's having success in Atlantic 10 competition during the 2012-13 season.
Several years ago a bunch of Drexel players starred in the league, which led to the Dragons' first-ever Colonial Athletic Association title and NCAA appearance the following winter.
Of the 29 players scoring 20 or more points, 15 of the multiperformances came from Saint Joseph's players, including the four-spot by Kuester.
She talked about how much the league is helpful to improve one's self for the next collegiate season.
"They've been the best, my parents, my coaches and everything and I'm going to miss this league so much. It's been great," Kuester said.
"It means everything. Summer is when you work out," Kuester said. "You wake up and work with your trainer but you don't play basketball. With this league, it's so competitive that you can work on different things. It makes you play with different players. It prepares you in every way for returning to school in the fall."
It was noted that Kuester was teamed with some Villanova players, a top local Big Five rival of the Hawks.
"Yeah, but you know what? They're my best friends. So it works out."
Elizabeth Sharlow, an incoming Lehigh freshman and one of a slew of Mountain Hawks from Kuester's future team who played in the league, was Lime Green's top scorer with 13 points.
Kuester and Dana Mitchell, a 2010 graduate of Saint Bonaventure and former all-Atlantic 10 player, each scored 11 points for Lime Green, while recent Villanova graduate Megan Pearson scored 10 points.
Elle Hagedorn, an incoming Harvard senior, scored seven points while Katelyn O'Reilly, an incoming Lehigh sophomore, scored five points.
Hagedorn is also the daughter of Lime Green coach Ted Hagedorn, who is assisted by Tom Freedman.
Villanova incoming senior Devon Kane is also on the roster but was unable to play this week, a situation that occurs for many players when the league games reach the first two weeks in August.
Alex Smith, an incoming Holy Cross junior, for example, has been unable to play in the postseason with Black because she is traveling with an all-star team in Europe.
"Longtime Crusaders coach Bill Gibbons sent a note expressing Smith's disappointment in being unable to attend the playoffs," according to the commissioner.
Kessler would not mind starting earlier than the June 19 date this season but is restricted under NCAA sanctioning rules.
Ted Hagedorn knows that with graduations and Kuester's departure his squad will have a different look next summer but at the moment it was time to be pleased with a third straight title.
"It was three in a row for Katie and Elle," Hagedorn said. "And two championships for a bunch of the rest of them, including Dana Mitchell and Jenn Prine, who came back after missing a year.
"Of course I had Devon Kane and Meg Pearson last year. This has been a great run for us," said Hagedorn, whose team lost just one game during the regular season last summer.
"This was a competitive game and we knew that the game that was yesterday was really misleading," Hagedorn said of Tuesday's win. "It was one of those games where we made more shots and the other team missed more.
"We knew they would come back at us hard and the other team played better defense against us tonight and it was a great challenge and we just toughed it out," Hagedorn continued.
"This team has a great will to win. They've been very unselfish all year. We had great attendance (from the players) and that allowed us to have fresher legs than most teams and that may have been an advantage and that may also have been an advantage tonight."
As for next year, "It will be a different team. Maybe we'll get some players back and keep it going. I hope to see them but we'll probably have a very different team next year."
At halftime when it was apparent Black might have been able to be take the lead, coach Keith Wood shook his head and said, "Turnovers. I tell these players, turnovers and defense decide games."
But overall he was pleased with the effort.
"I'm proud of the girls," Wood said. "We played hard. We turned the ball over a little too much, which I sort of expected. But we played hard. Could have hit a few more shots and it might have been a different outcome.
"But we bounced back from last night's game and we had a good summer," Wood added.
"I trhought we weren't going to have any legs but I didn't want to go into a zone (defense) because they had too many good shooters, so we stuck with playing man-to-man, but they hit the shots and the outcome is the outcome," Wood continued.
"But we played hard and I'm proud of the girls."
Jasmine Elum, a recent graduate of Bethune Cookman, scored 16 points, while incoming Villanova sophomore Emily Leer scored 14 points for Black.
"Kerry Kinek, a graduate of Central Catholic in Allentown heading for Lehigh and one of the top rookies in the league this summer, scored 10 points.
The Black scoring was completed with incoming Villanova senior Rachel Roberts scoring seven points, while incoming Kutztown senior Ashley Wood, the coach's daughter, scored five points and incoming Colgate sophomore stephanie Schultz scored two points, as did Brittany Kaewell, an incoming sophomore at Penn State-Abington.
The team rosters listed below refer to the players' class designation when they return to class in September. The same goes for all the 12 teams rosters, which had one or two small adjustments since the original post, but can be found scrolling this site to mid-June when the Guru ran an introduction to the season.
Kessler, during the ceremonies, paid thanks to Steve Flynn and Meg Baun of the Renegades for their hospitality.
By all standards, it was a successful season for Kessler, who can be contacted about the league at deucedbk@comcast net.
He already is working toward the next tip, listing dates toward opening day in the nightly newsletter.
April 25 is the deadline for the annual application for NCAA sanction, which will be followed on April 30 with an informational mailing to all prospective players. (The Guru will post a reminder when that goes into play, especially to attraction potential newcomers not on the commissioner's list.)
May 28th will be the deadline for submitting player information sheets and the competiton fee to enter the league. Two nights later on May 30th the annual draft will be held. (There are some rumors of some changes in the process). On June 9 following the ordering of jerseys on June 3, rosters and schedules will be emailed to players and the Guru a few nights later will post the annual guide to the league with similar material. League play is set to begin on June 18 for the 2013 summer season.
As for the season completed Wednesday night, forefeits, usually caused by player shortages stemming from conflicts with work, previous vacation commitments, as well as injuries or illness, were limited to just two.
No major injuries occured.
"I look at several things," Kessler said wrapping up another summer. "Few forfeits. No injuries. No incidents of any kind. And, most importantly, that everybody has a good time."
"Using those standards," he concluded, "it was one of our most successful seasons."
