Kevin Udo (West Orange, Fr.) grabbed 11 rebounds (eight off the offensive glass) and scored eight points, hitting two of four shots from the floor and four of six free throws. Friday’s semifinal win over Chestnut Hill was an 82-80 nail biter, in which Udo scored nine points on 4-for-5 shooting from the floor and 1-for-2 from the foul line, to accompany eight caroms and four blocks. Bloomfield (20-8) will face American International on Saturday at 2:30 pm at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts in first-round NCAA action.

Middlebury made quick work of Western Connecticut State in second-round NCAA Division 3 Tournament action. The Panthers, ranked second in Div. 3, downed WCSU, 79-53, with Joey Kizel (Short Hills, Fr.) managing a game-high five assists. He also chipped in seven points on 3-for-7 shooting from the floor and 1-for-2 from the foul line. Four rebounds landed in his clutches, too. Next up for Middlebury (26-1) is Rochester at 7:30 pm on Friday in Rochester, N.Y.

That’s also where teammate Patrick Sabatino (Westfield, Fr.) scored all four of his points in as many tries. The Ducks concluded a 22-7 season.

The Jason Banzhaf (Livingston, Sr.) era at Catholic University ended yesterday with a 74-61 loss to Lebanon Valley in the championship game of the ECAC Southeast Tournament.

The Seton Hall Prep grad scored 23 points on 10-for-16 shooting from the floor, including 3-for-5 from long range. He also earned credit for 10 rebounds and three assists. Another double-double was in the offing in the Lebanon Valley loss; he scored 14 points, although eight of those came at the foul line. He was just 3-for-11 from the field. Ten rebounds landed in his hands, as well. Catholic finished the season 21-9.

The season is also over for Ithaca’s Jordan Marcus (West Orange, Soph.) and Jordan Healey (Summit, Soph.). The Bombers lost, 82-78, at home on Friday to MIT in a first-round NCAA Division 3 Tournament game. Marcus scored nine points on 3-for-9 shooting from the floor, including 2-for-5 from 3-point land. Healey did not see action. Ithaca wrapped up a 20-7 campaign.


Abby Martin (Maplewood, Soph.) proved to be a difference maker as Monmouth took out Quinnipiac, 55-36, in a first-round Northeast Conference Tournament game in West Long Branch on Saturday. Martin, a Columbia High product, nearly equaled the opposition offensive output with her 25 points. She connected on 10 of 18 shots from the field and five of nine from the victim’s line. Her 11 rebounds were also a game high. Monmouth (22-8) now has Robert Morris to look forward to at 7 pm tomorrow in West Long Branch.  

Kean advanced to the NCAA Division 3 Tournament round of 16 with victories at home over Vassar, 80-49, on Friday and Western Connecticut State, 82-64, on Saturday. Emily Cristaldi (Summit, Fr.) scored nine points against Vassar, shooting 4-for-9 from the floor and 1-for-4 from the Elizabeth city line. She also racked up four thefts. The Summit High grad tallied 14 points in Saturday’s win, making seven of 12 field goal attempts. Kean’s next opponent is Christopher Newport on Friday at Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania.


Sean White (Summit, Jr.) pitched a 7-inning complete game to lead Dickinson to a 3-2 win over Messiah in the second game of a Saturday doubleheader in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. White, a southpaw who prepped at The Salisbury School, allowed just two hits and two earned runs, while striking out five Messiah batters. The Red Devils improved to 5-1 on the season.

Seton Hall’s Mike Genovese (Livingston, Soph.) saw action for the Pirates in Saturday’s 4-3 loss to Florida International in Miami and sprayed three singles in four at-bats. He also laid down a sacrifice bunt and drove in a run. Yesterday, the Livingston High grad rapped an RBI-double in four at-bats as the Hall lost, 3-1, to FIU. The Hall is now 2-7.

Rensselaer Poly’s Jonny Rio (Maplewood, Soph.) opened the spring season with a double in four at-bats in an 8-4 loss to Western New England in Farmingdale, N.Y. on Saturday. Rio, a shortstop, later scored on a single up the middle. He also made six putouts and picked up one assist.

Northeastern’s John Puttress (New Providence, Soph.) went 2-for-7 in a Saturday doubleheader in West Palm Beach, Fla. The catcher out of New Providence High stroked a double in four at-bats in the first game, a 9-4 Huskies victory over St. Bonaventure. Northeastern defeated Western Michigan, 11-8, in the nightcap as Puttress drove in two runs on a single to centerfield. Northeastern is now 2-8. 

Cornell opened its season with four losses spread over two days to Rider and Virginia. Third baseman Frank Hager (Berkeley Heights, Jr.) was a bright spot for the Big Red on Friday, however, as he went 3-for-5, plus a sacrifice bunt, on the day in a 6-0 loss to Rider and a 12-1 loss to Virginia. Hager’s hits were all singles and he successfully handled four chances in the field in the Virginia defeat.

A lack of offensive support hampered Franklin & Marshall’s Josh Gray (Livingston, Soph.) in Friday’s game against Rowan in Glassboro. Gray allowed just two runs, both earned, in six innings, but left with the game tied at 2. The floodgates opened upon his departure and Rowan left with a 6-2 victory. Gray, a righty out of Morristown Beard, allowed just three hits and struck out three Profs. The Diplomats are now 0-4.
