Dance Card: Navy, Patriot champions

Anchors Aweigh, and Semper Fi!

Bombs away!

Who? The Midshipmen of Navy.

What? One of the more accurate nicknames out there. Bill the Goat harks back to an earlier era of naval history.

Where? Annapolis, Maryland, the capital of Maryland.

When? March 16th in Annapolis, Maryland.

Why? They won the Patriot League conference tournament.

How? Kara Pollinger canned six threes on her way to 24 points, and Jade Geif added nine points and 12 rebounds to power the Mids to a 72-53 win over Holy Cross.

Surprise? Predicted to finish first in the conference, they finished tied for first with Army, but fell to second on the tiebreaker.

RPI: 113

SOS: 226

Record: 21-11 (11-3 Patriot)

Good wins: East Carolina.

Bad losses: At Mount St. Mary's.

Who's running this show? Stefanie Pemper, since 2008, the first Navy coach to post a winning record in Patriot League play.

Extra, Extra! The Annapolis Capital.


Not a senior to be seen on this Navy squad- everything rests on the juniors. Forward Jade Geif leads the way with 13.1 points and 7.9 rebounds, but the 55.4% free throw shooting worries me. Guards Alix Membreno (11.4 ppg) and Kara Pollinger (10.8) are threats from deep and share playmaking duties.
