CCAA Women’s poll out

JJ JUdge

Chico State is predicted to repeat history by capturing the 2013-14 regular-season California Collegiate Athletic Association title, according to a poll of Conference coaches.

The Wildcats received 112 points and seven first-place votes, just ahead of Cal Poly Pomona.  The Broncos, who wrapped up the 2012-13 season in sixth, have been forecasted to finish second in the conference with 101 points and four first-place votes.

The Coyotes, who have added former Cal State Monterey Bay head coach Renee Jimenez, totaled 77 points and nabbed a single first-place vote but are predicted to finish seventh.

Reigning CCAA Coach of the Year, Brian Fogel returns for his sixth season after guiding Chico State to an overall record of 23-6, which included their fifth consecutive post-season appearance and second-straight NCAA Tournament appearance.  The Wildcats return six from last year’s roster, including First-team All-CCAA selections—Courtney Hamilton and Jasmine Miller.  Hamilton wrapped up the 2012-13 season as the Conference leader in assists (4.6 p/g), while Miller finished as one of the CCAA’s top scorers with a .831 free-throw percentage and 46 three-pointers.

Cal Poly Pomona’s 2012-13 post-season play was short lived after being eliminated by Cal State Monterey Bay in the first-round of the CCAA Championship Tournament.  The Broncos have five-top guards returning from last year’s squad, including their top scorer J.J. Judge who led Cal Poly Pomona with 14.3 points per contest.  Defending CCAA Freshman of the Year, Cydnie Jones will also look to lead the Broncos squad after averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.4 steals per game in her rookie season.

Chico State is the only Conference women’s basketball team to appear ranked in the USA TODAY Sports Division II preseason coaches poll.  The Wildcats are No. 17 among the nation’s top 25 teams.

Cal State men favored in tough CCAA

Jeff Oliver

Cal State San Bernardino is the favorite to take home the CCAA men’s basketball title, at least according to a poll of member coaches.

The Coyotes totaled 115 points to finish just ahead of defending CCAA regular-season and tournament champion Cal Poly Pomona who garnered 112 points.  The Coyotes and Broncos split the first-place votes with six a piece.

San Francisco State edged Chico State for third with 92 points.  The Wildcats, who were picked to finish first in last season’s coaches’ poll have been forecasted to finish fourth with 91 points.  Cal State Dominguez Hills has been predicted to finish fifth for the second time in as many years with 86 points.

Cal State San Bernardino begins its 12th season under head coach Jeff Oliver and is coming off of a 20-9 season which included a sixth-straight Conference Tournament berth and the Coyotes’ seventh NCAA tournament appearance under Oliver’s direction.

With the absence of former seniors Johnny Bell and All-American Kwame Alexander, the Coyotes have brought in 11 newcomers to join top returners, Lacy Haddock and Joshua Gouch.  All-CCAA Second Team selection Haddock averaged 12.4 points per game and was the Conference leader in assists (5.0) and minutes played (37.4) per contest.

Cal Poly Pomona captured their first-ever outright regular-season title after matching the school record for wins in a season with an overall record of 28-3.  Four-time CCAA Coach of the Year, Greg Kemansky guided the Broncos to their third NCAA tournament appearance in five years.

Despite graduating All-American and reigning CCAA Player of the Year Mitchel Anderson, the Broncos look to remain competitive with the return of two seniors starters–Terrence Drisdom and DeRonn Scott.  Drisdom was named to the All-CCAA First team and received All-West Region honors the National Basketball Coaches Association (NABC) and Daktronics, Inc. after averaging 13 points and 3.0 assists per game, and leading the CCAA with 2.0 steals per game.  Scott averaged 10.6 points per game.

Here is the complete rundown.

Broncos get preseason ranking

Barry Bell

After matching the school record for wins last year, the Cal Poly Pomona men’s basketball program is gaining national recognition through the first Division II preseason poll of 2013-14.

The D-II Bulletin has coach Greg Kamanksy’s team ranked sixth in the preseason poll. Of course that doesn’t mean much. These polls typically go on what you did last year and the Bronocs advanced to the second round of the NCAA postseason. It marked the program’s 10th all-time appearance in the NCAA Tournament.

Also last season, the Broncos swept the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) regular season and tournament titles.

Local rival Cal State San Bernardino was in the “Other teams to watch” category. The Coyotes are likely to start four Division I transfers when they take the floor against UCLA Oct. 30.

Metro State is the Bulletin’s No. 1 team.

Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team in familiar position

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BV3R1oWCAAAguPz.jpg

The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team is taking aim at yet another CCAA title. For those keeping track, it has won seven in a row and nine of the last 11. That’s a pretty formidable streak in any sport, let alone in a conference as tough as the CCAA.

The Coyotes return the balance of a roster of a team that advanced to the NCAA Division II West Regional a year ago. That’s the good news.

The bad news is one of the few the Coyotes lost was their setter – two-time All-American Camille Smith.  Her absence is huge. Not only was she a top-notch setter, she was perhaps the team’s top defensive player as well as a key blocker, something not usually the norm for a setter.

Coach Kim Cherniss has two athletes she is using there right now, senior Stephanie Sinohui and freshman Hannah Liserra. Sinohui played behind Smith so she didn’t see a lot of action. Both show potential but Liserra is the future.

Cherniss is one of the best in the business. By the ed of the season the Coyotes will likely be where they need to be to challenge for another spot in the Elite Eight.

The Coyotes are 11-4, but an impressive 7-0 in conference play. What’s worth noting is that of those seven wins, six have come on the road and they have already secured wins at Sonoma State and San Francisco State, among others. That means the schedule will be loaded with home games the second half of conference play.

So it doesn’t look like the balance of power is shifting any time soon.

Cal Poly Pomona player lauded

BRandon COrtez

Cal Poly Pomona senior forward Brandon Cortez has been named the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for the week of Sept. 23-29.

Cortez led the Broncos (5-2-1, 3-2-1)  to victories against Sonoma State and Humboldt State this past weekend at Kellogg Field. He managed four of the Broncos seven goals on the weekend, with two scored during Friday’s CCAA home opener against the Seawolves and another two in Sunday’s 4-1 victory over the Lumberjacks.

The Mission Viejo native scored the game winner in both contests while needing just eight shots for the four scores.

Cortez has doubled his career goal total and is now second among the CCAA leaders with five goals scored in 2013.

 

Cal State volleyball team moves up 4 spots

The Cal State San Bernardino volleyball team moved up four places to No. 16 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Division II poll released today.

The Coyotes (9-4, 5-0) sit alone in first in the CCAA after a big week that included noteworthy wins over No. 12 UC San Diego (11-2) and Chico State as well as Cal State Stanislaus.

The CCAA is also represented by No. 13 Sonoma State (10-2), another team the Coyotes have already beaten.

Defending national champion Concordia-St. Paul (13-1) moved into the top spot after a win over its rival Minnesota-Duluth (13-1), which had been No. 1.

The Coyotes are on the road at Humboldt State Thursday and Cal Poly Pomona on Saturday.
