Brown and McDonough Along With The FDU Devils Enters Tonight’s Game With A Huge Chip On Their Shoulders!

LysCoachLette

This year, the only way Montclair and FDU-Florham would be able to settle the Garden State debate of the best team is in the national title game, which is possible.

“We look at it as another game,” FDU-Florham junior double-double machine Schalette Brown said. “We don’t think about playing on the road. I mean, we would like to be home, but at the end of the day, whether we’re home or away, it doesn’t really matter.”

The venue may not matter for Brown. Senior Kyra Dayon may not mind taking a bus trip to Tufts, a place she’s never been before. The rest of the talented Devils probably will enjoy the bonding time that the trip will afford because they can relax, be silly, share jokes, Snapchat and watch movies.

However, Mitchell isn’t thrilled that the Devils have been dismissed, disrespected and now, by the NCAA committee, displaced.

“To me it matters,” Mitchell said. “My team, they are really humble and our coaches try to be humble, but at some point, we feel that there is a disrespect there towards our program. We’ve had this feeling all season long. Even though we were No. 1 for most of the season, we always felt that people were waiting for us to fall. We were never a unanimous No. 1 on anybody’s poll.

“Quietly, we felt like ‘here we go again.’ It’s a one-point loss on the road to a very good team and two of my starters didn’t play in the first half. Now we’re on the road. It’s a principle thing. My team has been playing with that chip on their shoulder all season long.”

“Quietly, we felt like ‘here we go again.’ It’s a one-point loss on the road to a very good team and two of my starters didn’t play in the first half. Now we’re on the road. It’s a principle thing. My team has been playing with that chip on their shoulder all season long.”

– FDU-Florham coach Marc Mitchell, on his team getting sent to Tufts for the sectional round

The Devils play a style of basketball that’s angrier than Mitchell.

Since losing to Eastern, FDU-Florham has been locked in. They have won games by 41, 29, 22, 37, 30, 10, 44 and 16 points. The Devils are the only ones that can control whether or not they are the last team standing in two weeks. They are getting contributions from everybody, which makes the Devils a tough team to defend.

Brown led the Devils with 24 points and 15 rebounds in their opening round win over Johnson & Wales. In their second round triumph over the University of New England, sophomore guard Alyssa McDonough flirted with a triple-double (28 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists) as the Devils stormed back from an early 10-point deficit.

Brown and McDonough are the Devils top two scorers at 13.4 and 12.7 points, respectively. Seniors Leigh Ann-Lively and Kara Dayon have combined to make 122 3-pointers. FDU-Florham averages 9.0 3-pointers a game, which is third nationally, and 84.4 points per contest, which is fourth.

Bringing it all together is Kyra, who is special. She does whatever it is that’s needed for the Devils. The All-Freedom Conference first-team selection Kyra Dayon has continued her ascent to the top of several FDU-Florham career marks this season and is currently second all-time in points (1,758), first in steals (327) and fourth in assists (317). In addition, she needs just two rebounds to be the school’s all-time leading rebounder (851) and six field goals (682) to claim the program’s top spot.

Montclair, NJ – Senior forward Taylor Jeffers (Franklin Township, NJ, Franklin) scored a game-high 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead undefeated Montclair State University to its 27th straight victory with a 75-54 win over second-seeded William Paterson University in the championship contest of the New Jersey Athletic Conference Championship Tournament Saturday afternoon at the Panzer Athletic Center.

Jeffers, who notched her fourth “double-double” performance of the season, scored 11 of her points in the second half to help the Red Hawks break the game open.

Montclair State, ranked fifth in the nation on the D3Hoops.com Top25 Poll and seventh on the USA Today/Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Poll, remains one of two unbeaten teams in NCAA Div. III this season at 27-0. The top seed following a perfect 16-0 mark in NJAC play, MSU captures its second conference title in as many championship game appearances. The Red Hawks, who won their previous NJAC championship in 1994-95, will now receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship, which begins March 1. Selections will be announced on Monday, Feb. 25 at 2:30 p.m. on NCAA.com.

The tournament second seed, William Paterson had a seven-game winning streak snapped in dropping its record to 20-7 on the year. The Pioneers, who were making their 13th championship-game appearance, including the last four in a row, were denied in their bid for a third straight NJAC Tournament title and fourth overall.

This season, MSU has set school records for the best start to a season, for consecutive victories and wins in a season. The basketball team also claimed the longest winning streak by any athletic team in school history, breaking the 26-game winning streak by the softball team in 2008. The Red Hawks, who have also won their last 20 games at home dating back to last season, have defeated William Paterson three times this season, the first time since 2001-02 that they have beaten the Pioneers in three straight meetings. Montclair State, which leads the all-time series 41-34, posted its first win in four tries against WP in the NJAC Tournament.

The first half was tightly-contested with the lead changing hands 11 times and the score deadlocked on 11 other occasions, the last at 33-33 at the halftime intermission. The lead was larger than three points by either team only twice in the opening stanza. William Paterson held the half’s biggest margin at 19-14 at the 9:55 mark.

Montclair State, which has been victorious by double digits in every game this season, finally broke the game open in the second half. The half opened much like the first with three more ties, the last at 41-41 with 13:44 remaining. MSU then held WP scoreless for the next five minutes while scoring 12 straight points, including six by Jeffers, to start an 18-3 scoring outburst that would give them a comfortable 15-point bulge at 59-44 with 5:35 left.

William Paterson, held to just 21 points in the second half, was unable to rally. The Pioneers shot just 25.8 percent (8-for-31) from the field in the half.

Ranked second in the nation in scoring margin (28.7 ppg.) and eighth in scoring defense (45.3 ppg.), Montclair State continued to increase its lead to as much as 21 points twice, the last at the game’s end. MSU won by 20-plus points for the 21st time this season while allowing more than 50 points for just the fourth time.

The nation’s leader in steals per game (18.3), Montclair State was held to just 13 in the contest. The Red Hawks, who also rank third in turnover margin (12.42), forced William Paterson into 23 turnovers.

Three other MSU players reached double figures in scoring. Sophomore guard Janitza Aquino (Kearny, NJ, Kearny) scored 15 points and sophomore forward Melissa Tobie (Elizabeth, NJ, Roselle Catholic), the NJAC Player of the Year, collected 10 points, six rebounds and a game-high six assists. Reserve freshman forward Jen Kuczynski (Springfield, NJ, Jonathan Dayton) scored 12 points, including 3-of-4 from three point range, to help in the Red Hawk victory.

Junior guard Floriana Borova (Cresskill, N.J./Cresskill), the NJAC”s leading scorer this season, topped William Paterson with 19 point. Freshman guard-forward Shakira Negron added 11 points and junior forward Dana Jeter (Hamilton, N.J./Steinert) grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds for the Pioneers before fouling out of the contest.

Shalette Brown

Montclair, NJ – Freshman guard/forward Shalette Brown (Somerset, NJ, Franklin Township) keeps piling up the accolades as she was named the New Jersey Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Rookie of the Week for the third straight week and eighth time overall this season.

Brown’s selection is just one shy of matching teammate Melissa Tobie’s nine awards last season. Between Brown and Tobie, Montclair State has won 17 of the last 29 NJAC Rookie of the Week honors over the past two seasons.

The 23 victories as well as the 15 league wins are the most by MSU since the 1989-90 campaign (23-6) when it won the NJAC regular-season title at 17-1 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.

Brown currently ranks in the Top 10 of the conference in four categories. She is second in steals at 4.0 per game, a figure that is also 15th in Division III. Brown is third in field goal percentage (.475), 12th in rebounding (6.6 rpg) and 16th in scoring (10.2 ppg).
