REILLY TO COACH IN NEWBA
ALL-STAR GAME

Providence, RI—Rhode Island College Head Coach Marcus Reilly was selected to coach in the 2012 New England Women’s Basketball Association’s (NEWBA) Senior All-Star Classic, which will be played at Western New England University on Saturday, March 24 at 1 p.m.

 

Reilly will guide the “White” squad, which features the Rhode Island College senior guards Stephanie Coro (North Providence, RI) and Cynthia Gaudet (Coventry, RI), as well as senior forward Rachel Riley (Coventry, RI).

 

 

 

The 2011-2012 Little East Conference Coach of the Year will get one final chance to coach his senior trio. The Anchorwomen fell to Emmanuel College, 57-52, a little over a week ago in the second round of the 2012 NCAA Div. III Women’s Basketball Tournament.

 

Reilly’s team finished the season with a 25-4 overall record and a 13-1 (first place) mark in the Little East Conference. RIC closes out the program’s most successful campaign, having established new school records for wins (25), winning percentage (.862) and Little East wins (13). The Anchorwomen captured the program’s first-ever Little East Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championships, while also advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 27 years.
