Noontime Hoops Notebook: Emmanuel’s Yosinoff Becomes All-Time Winningest D3 Women’s Basketball Coach & More

Noontime Hoops Notebook

By Matt Noonan | @MattNoonan11 

It was an exciting day for Emmanuel College‘s Andy Yosinoff, who became the all-time winningest women’s basketball coach in NCAA Division III, thanks to a 68-58 win over Ramapo College.

Yosinoff, who has been coaching at Emmanuel since 1978, entered today’s non-conference tilt tied with the University of Scranton‘s Mike Strong, who retired in October 2014 with 815 wins.

“You can’t set a record like this without a lot of great players, coaches and support staff,” said Yosinoff via today’s release. “This win isn’t about me, it’s about the program. It’s for every player that has worn a Saints uniform and contributed to where we are today. I’m just lucky to have been along for the ride and have amazing coaches and administrators at Emmanuel who support what I do year after year.”

Yosinoff has guided the Saints to 18 NCAA Tournament appearances, including a 2001 Final Four contest, along with a trio of Sweet Sixteen and two Elite Eight contests. Additionally, he has led the Blue and Gold to 15 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) crowns.

Manny Payton became the 20th member of the Framingham State men’s basketball program to reach 1,000 points yesterday during his team’s 66-57 setback to John Jay. The senior guard from Fitchburg netted a game-high 19 points on 7 of 16 shooting.

Clark University senior Sam O’Gara also eclipsed the 1,000-point mark yesterday, as well, by netting 17 points on 6 of 18 shooting, which helped the Cougars defeat Regis College, 70-65. O’Gara, who hails from Worcester, is now the 21st student-athlete in program history to net 1,000 points or more.

After falling 94-91 earlier this month to Salem State, the Gulls of Endicott College rebounded with back-to-back wins over Colby-Sawyer and Thomas CollegeKeith Brown highlighted his team’s win earlier today against the Terriers with a team-high 25 points, while Joe Shehadi added 16 points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Both of Endicott’s games took place at Salem State, which was hosting a two-day, four-team holiday tournament.

The Babson College women’s basketball team extended its current winning streak to six games as the Beavers rolled past Salve Regina, 99-58, in the opening contest of the Judy Pearson ’85 Memorial Tournament. Nicole Hiller netted a career-high 16 points in the win, while Medfield’s Payton Ouimette added 15 points and nine rebounds.

Babson will face UMass Dartmouth in tomorrow’s championship game, which is scheduled to commence at 2 p.m. The Corsairs defeated St. Lawrence, 71-50, thanks to a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds from Nakira Examond. Examond, who hails from New Bedford, currently leads the Corsairs with 18.4 points per game.

Other notes from the weekend: 

  • Coach Jim Calhoun and the University of St. Joseph’s (Conn.) men’s basketball team capped its December slate with a 92-68 win over Salve Regina on Saturday. Three players, including Delshawn Jackson Jr. finished in double-figures.
  • MIT women’s basketball capped its December slate with an impressive 56-46 win over TCNJ on Saturday. The Engineers’ fifth-straight win was highlighted by Upton’s Kylie Gallagher, who led all MIT scorers with 12 points. TCNJ was held to just 19 field goals on 57 attempts.
  • After falling to Bowdoin College yesterday, the Wheaton College women’s basketball team bounced back with a 67-36 win over Cedar Crest to move to 6-5 overall. Wheaton jumped out to a 20-5 advantage after one quarter and never looked back. Sara McLeman highlighted her team’s win with a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds.
  • The St. Joseph’s College (Maine) men’s basketball team extended its current winning streak to 10 games as the Monks outlasted Emmanuel College, 107-102, earlier this afternoon. Four St. Joseph players finished in double-figures, including Jack Casale, who finished with 31 points on 11 of 22 shooting.
