Gwynedd-Mercy NCAA College Basketball Playoff Preview

Here's a look at Friday nights NCAA Division III match-up vs. Mt. St. Mary's.

 

Friday, March 2nd 2012   Lebanon Valley College   6pm    
             
Winner plays Lebanon Valley - Vassar winner    Saturday night   6pm    
             
             
             
             
             
Gwynedd-Mercy Griffins  20-7 14-2   Projected Starting 5   GR   HT   PTS   REBS
Colonial States Athletic Conference    Bryn Cottetta   Sr 5-5 10.6  2.7
Keith Mondillo    17th Season  (342-128)   Brittany Neill   Sr 5-7 11.8  4.7
Key wins:   Jess Rotella   Fr 5-11  9.9  5.2
Kings / Baptist Bible (2x) Marywood (2x)   Shea Wassell   Fr 6-0  7.7  5.2
    Taylour Alston  So 6-0  6.2  5.4
             

Sixth Conference title and eighth NCAA playoff appearance under Mondillo.
5-6 overall on January 2nd. Won 13 in a row.
Held opponents to an average of 50 points per game during winning streak.
Starters average 22 minutes a game. Non starters average 13 minutes per game.
Averages 18 turnovers a game while forcing 21.
Cotteta and Neill both selected all conference first team.

Both Cottetta and Neill make this team run. But EVERYONE runs. They are three deep from beyond the arc (Neill, Jordan Dominic, Cottetta) with a nice low post preseance. (Alston, Natascha Richardson, Wassell) Freshman Jess Rotella has only gotten better from the start of the season and almost single handedly kept the Griffins from being eliminated by Marywood. Lauren Smith, Cara McCardle and Nicole Dougherty were starters a year ago who have adjusted nicely coming off the bench. Leyes is a key in Modillo's rotation filling in where needed. Mondillo is not afraid to shake things up when things aren't going right by sometimes inserting five new bodies at a time.



Mount St. Mary Knights  24-3  13-1   Projected Starting 5 GR HT PTS REBS  
Skyline Conference    Jen Macanu Sr 5-9 17.5  3.1  
J. Randall Ognibene   32nd Season  (587-253)    Rachel Perrone So 5-10  7.4  6.6

New Paltz / Montclair State / Farmingdale State    Amanda Horvers Sr 5-9 12.5  4.4
