Alex Goslin enjoyed a successful senior season with the Springfield College women’s basketball team, averaging career-bests in points per game (13.9) and rebounds (4.6.).

The South Windsor, Connecticut native started every game for the Pride this past winter and concluded her team’s 2019-20 campaign with 374 points, 104 assists, 123 rebounds, and 56 steals. Additionally, Goslin became the 16th student-athlete in program history to eclipse the 1,000th point mark when she netted a game-high 26 points in her team’s 106-62 win last December over Westfield State.

“It was pretty surreal,” Goslin said of her 1,000th point. “It was so loud and I think that just shows the family of Springfield College and how much support we have here from like my family and our Springfield College family.”

Named the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women’s Basketball Athlete of the Year, Goslin concluded her four-year career with the Pride by netting scoring 1,220 points in 113 games to go with 367 rebounds, 369 assists, and 190 steals.

We recently caught up with Alex Goslin to discuss her impressive career with the Pride, as well as her plans after graduation.


What will you remember most about your final season with the Pride? 

All of the memories we made together. Not so much the wins or the losses, but more so the time we spent together in the locker room, on campus, and during practices. Additionally, I’ll remember the daily battles we had with each other on the court to competing and pushing each other to get better.

From a personal perspective, it was great to score my 1,000th point (last December), but that was only because of my coaches and teammates.

At the end of the day, it’s less about the personal accomplishments I had and more about the time I spent with the team. It’s hard to pinpoint one single thing that I will remember the most, but I think it would certainly have to be the people (I played with these past four years).

Was there a game (or two) that you will remember most from either your senior season or the past three years? If so, which game(s) are they? 

One game that really sticks out in my mind was when we beat Smith College in last year’s NEWMAC Tournament. It was such a close and competitive game. Smith had some really skilled players on their team, but we battled the whole time and won as a team.

Another game I will remember is when we played MIT during my junior year at home. It was a game we won in the final ten seconds. It was another great win for us and it was one of those moments you dream about as a kid.

From this past season, I think it was our game against Westfield State. I scored my 1,000th point (during the game), and once my shot dropped in I was blown away by the support of both my teammates and our fans. It was our accomplishment, not a personal one, and it made me realize how grateful I was to be a part of such a special program, with the most amazing people.

What have you enjoyed most about competing for your team/program these past four years? What will you miss most after graduation? 

I think I’ve enjoyed all of the connections I’ve made with my teammates, but also the memories I have made these past four years. My coaches and teammates have taught me a lot and enabled me to grow into a person I never knew I could become. I’ve learned life skills that will prepare me for future success while gaining lifelong friends that I know will always be there for me.

I think I will miss the little things such as team dinners, singing and dancing to music on the bus before games, and just being with my teammates off the court.

Do you hope to stay involved with your sport in the future?

I definitely plan to coach in the future. I would love to coach an AAU team at some point and definitely a high school squad, too.

As a future coach, I also hope to run clinics and summer camps to help young girls develop their skills, have fun while competing, and build a basketball community. I also want to continue playing in women’s basketball league.

Tell me about your major. How did you choose it and what do you plan to do with it after graduation? 

I am a math and secondary education major with a minor in athletic coaching. I chose this major because I want to make a difference to future generations, but also empower them to become leaders.

I will be teaching eighth-grade math in Bolton, Connecticut next fall, and as mentioned in your previous question, I would also like to coach (at some point soon). I am really excited to give back the others and take the mission of Springfield College, which is all about education of the whole person in spirit, mind, and body for leadership and service to others everywhere we go.

Saturday was a crazy day in New England D3 Hoops with upsets, new records and yes, even a coach earning 100 wins – congrats Coach Santa Fe!

Here are the highlights from what was an exciting and busy day of D3 Hoops!

Let’s congratulate (once again) Coach Angela Santa Fe on reaching 100 wins as the Regis College  women’s basketball team defeated Suffolk University in Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) play.

Johnny McCarthy and the Amherst College men’s basketball team cruised to an impressive win over Hamilton College this afternoon. The win – the Mammoths’ 10th of the season and second in New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) play – halted the Continentals’ 15-game winning streak, which dates back to last November!

The Amherst College women’s basketball team established a new program for consecutive wins – 51, to be exact – as they also defeated Hamilton this afternoon, too.

Nick Gilpin recorded a layup with 13 seconds remaining, which helped Bates College stun Tufts University, 77-75. The win snapped a three-game losing streak, too.

Abby Kelly scored a team-high 17 points as the Bowdoin College women’s basketball team cruised to a 74-33 win over Colby College to improve to 17-0 overall.

David Reynolds netted a career-high 29 points to lead the Bowdoin men’s basketball team past Colby, 83-77. The Polar Bears led the Mules, 46-33 at the break, but relied on its defense to secure the win as Colby outscored the hosts, 44-37, in the second half.

MIT erased a five-point deficit at the break to defeat Babson College in overtime by a score of 80-78. Bradley Jomard (MIT) recorded a double-double of 22 points and 11 rebounds in the win – he almost recorded a triple-double, but finished with eight assists.

The UMass Dartmouth women’s basketball team netted 31 points in the third quarter en route to defeating Plymouth State, 78-64.

The UMass Boston women’s basketball team rebounded from a mid-week setback to defeat Keene State this afternoon to secure a season sweep for the second time in program history.

Thanks to 15 points from Alex Goslin, the Springfield College women’s basketball team was able to defeat Babson College for an important New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) victory.

The WPI men’s basketball team collaborated for 13 trifectas this afternoon to defeat Clark University.

A 28 point third quarter helped the Castleton University women’s basketball team defeat Thomas to improve to 10-0 in North Atlantic Conference (NAC) play.

Despite a 58-49 setback to Gordon College, Curry College’s Emily Irwin recorded her 1,000th point, while pacing the Colonels with a game-high 20 points.

Olivia Bolden became the third member of the Albertus Magnus women’s basketball program to reach 1,000 points.

Sam Maglione netted six triples and tallied 26 points as Worcester State women’s basketball top Fitchburg State to even its record at 8-8.

A second half surge helped Nichols College men’s basketball rally to defeat Roger Williams (82-79) and extend its current winning streak to five-games.
