NYIT Women’s Basketball suffered a 64-47 loss to the number one seeded Adelphi in the first round of the NCAA tournament Friday night which ended their wonderful season. The Bears actually held a one-point lead after the first quarter but the Panthers took control of the second half.

It was an extremely successful and promising first season under Coach Kenneth Parham as they finished with an impressive 18-12 record. NYIT earned the East Regional’s eighth seed and reached the final round of the East Coast Conference playoffs by winning at Roberts Wesleyan for the first time in school history, then snapped Queens’ 16-game winning streak during that span. The Bears also appeared in the first round of the NCAA tournament to add to the list of accomplishments.

Coach Parham spoke highly of the team: “I think overall our season was a huge success. These young ladies from day one bought into the system, played extremely hard, competed every single day. Today we’re not happy, but only one team at the end will win their last game.”

Margaret Knollmeyer was awarded ECC Rookie of the Year. Against Adelphi, she produced 17 points and 12 rebounds. Junior Nina Vukosavljevic, who won a first-team All-ECC selection, also contributed 17 points in the loss.

The devastating loss ended the careers of Shanice Allen and Julie Williams but with the core of this team still intact that got to be part of an unforgettable experience and a new coach ready to take this team to the next level, they will be back better and stronger next year.
