The C.W. Post Women’s Basketball Team is looking forward to another exciting season as it comes off of a season in which it finished with a record of 17 wins and 13 losses overall and 11 wins and nine losses in conference play. With 16 games away from the Pratt this season and 12 home games, the team will have to look to put together a successful away record if it really wants to compete.
Entering her third season as head coach for the Pioneers, Deirdre Moore put together her best record in the 2009-2010 season and has to capitalize on the great amount of away games that the team has this season. With only an 11-spot roster and eight returning players, chemistry among the teammates should not be a problem, especially with the return of senior guard Felicia Joyner, who started in every game in the past two seasons and was named to the East Coast Conference Second Team in both 2011 and 2010. She was ranked in the ECC top ten scorers list.
Assisting Joyner will be junior center/foward Nicolette Marciniak, who has played in every game the past two seasons and averaged 8.1 points per game last season and a team-leading 5.6 rebounds. She had the third-best shooting percentage in the ECC.
The girls will kick off their season with six away games beginning at Philadelphia University on November 12th, before coming home on November 30th, for a matchup against rival Dowling College at the Pratt Center.
