Playoff update as of 2/14/2013

The Ravens' playoff picture got a little less murky after last night's CSAC action. WBB will host at least 1 game in the post-season, ending the regular season seeded between 2nd-4th place.

  • If the Ravens win on Saturday at Gwynedd-Mercy, they will lock down the #2 seed and earn a bye into the CSAC Semi-Final round where they will host a game on Wednesday, 2/20 (7:00pm) against the highest remaining seed from the quarterfinal round.
  • If the Ravens lose to Gwynedd-Mercy on Saturday, the Ravens will finish in either 3rd or 4th place and will host a CSAC quarterfinal game on Monday, 2/18 (7:00pm). The seeding will depend on the result of the Marywood @ Cabrini game on Saturday.
  •         If Cabrini wins on Saturday against Marywood, the Ravens would be the #3 seed and play #6 seed.
  •         If Marywood wins on Saturday against Cabrini, the Ravens would be the #4 seed and would play #5 seed.


ROSEMONT, PA – The last time the Rosemont College women’s basketball team earned a spot in a conference post-season tournament was in 2005. The wait for their next opportunity has been a long one for the Ravens, spanning eight years and 195 games.

Since becoming a member of the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC) and later the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC), the Ravens have appeared in three post-season tournaments, losing all three contests played.

In 2005 the Ravens finished with a 12-10 record (10-6 PAC). Katie Linder scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds but the #5 seeded Rosemont were defeated at #4 Misericordia, 66-56.

Prior to the 2005 appearance Rosemont appeared in two straight post-season PAC tournaments. In 2001 #8 Rosemont (5-19, 5-11 PAC) lost at #1 seeded Misericordia, 74-49. In 2000 #7 Rosemont dropped a 59-51 decision at #2 Alvernia.

The Ravens hope that the long wait to qualify for the playoffs and the 0-3 postseason record will be distant memory when their last game is played this season.

The NCAA national statistical rankings show that this year’s women’s basketball squad is talented. Senior Ashley Montecchio and sophomore Liz Coyne are ranked 1st and 11th nationwide in scoring. Montecchio ranks among the top 25 nationally in blocks and double-doubles while Coyne also ranks in the top 25 nationally in rebounds and double-doubles.
