COACHING STAFF

Alisa Kintner • Head Coach Alisa (DiBonaventura) Kintner has built an impressive resume the last 10 years for Widener’s women’s basketball team. With many key players back, she is hoping the squad can put together another successful run. Owner of a 139-102 career record, she paid immediate dividends in her first campaign. The 2003-04 team finished 18-10 en route to winning the Commonwealth Conference championship and clinching the school’s second trip to the NCAA Tournament. It was in 2008-09 that she helped the team to another league title. The Pride also closed 18-10 in gaining a trip to the big dance, again winning two conference tournament games on the road. For her effort, she was named the league’s Coach of the Year. The 2009-10 squad again made it to postseason and notched its first such victory, upending Gwynedd-Mercy in the ECAC South Tournament quarterfinals. The 2004-05 team went to the ECAC South Tournament for the second of her four postseason trips. In the summer of 2009, she served as head coach of a squad as part of the USA Athletes International Tour in Barbados. The Pride in 2012 saw junior Kate Dellinger named an Academic-All America, Honorable Mention WBCA All-America as well as Commonwealth Conference Player of the Year. The Pride that season advanced to the conference final. She arrived at Widener after two seasons at Delaware Valley College, her alma mater, as an assistant coach. At Delaware Valley, the team went 16-12 in 2002 and reached the Freedom Conference championship game for the first time in school history. The Aggies upset seventh-ranked King’s in the semifinals before a one-point loss to Scranton in the final. Delaware Valley went 11-16 the following year and reached the conference tournament for the fourth time in a five-year span, winning five of its last six games. She had a storied playing career at Delaware Valley from 19982001. She capped her senior season by becoming the first Aggie in any sport to be named Kodak All-America. That season, she also received citations as a D3Hoops.com AllAmerica, the Freedom Conference co-Player of the Year and ECAC

Southern Region Player of the Year. In dishing a conference-record 237 assists that season, she was named first team All-Freedom Conference after earning second-team honors as a sophomore and junior. Delaware Valley in 2000-01 enjoyed a school-record 21-6 campaign that saw it advance to the Freedom Conference Tournament for the second time in three years. In helping pace the team to the ECAC title, she was named tournament MVP. The Aggies went 6-18 the year prior to her arrival and 18-9 in 1998-99. The team qualified for the Middle Atlantic Conference Tournament and reached the ECAC final. On January 30, 1999, she notched a conference-record 17 assists against Lycoming, becoming the 11th player in NCAA history to reach that plateau. A two-time captain, she led the NCAA with 8.5 assists per game in 1999-2000 and 8.8 assists per contest in 2000-01. She finished her career with 636 assists, still the highest mark in MAC and Delaware Valley history. Her career mark of 8.2 assists per game is third in NCAA Division III annals. She also holds Delaware Valley’s single-season record with 72 three-pointers in 2000-01 and 105 steals in 1998-99. She ranks sixth all-time in Delaware Valley history with 986 points and wrapped her career with 1,131 points, including 145 as a freshman at Division II Slippery Rock. Delaware Valley in September 2009 recognized her accomplishments by inducting her into the school’s Athletics Hall of Fame. While at Slippery Rock in 1997-98, she started all 27 games and ranked ninth in Division II with 6.4 assists per contest. She graduated from Delaware Valley College in 2001 with a B.S. in Business Education.

WIDENER PRIDE


PREVIEW Widener this season is looking at some very high expectations after playing last year for the Commonwealth Conference title. The team returns all of its starters and many quality players off the bench in hopes of returning to the NCAA Tournament. The Pride’s hopes begin with senior guard Kate Dellinger, who last season was named Honorable Mention All-America, Academic All-America and conference Player of the Year. One of the school’s hardest-working and most dedicated student-athletes in any sport, she has made a determined effort to walk out of Widener with a conference title. She closed third in the league last season in points per game, first in steals per contest, seventh in rebounds per game, 15th in assists per contest and 14th in free throw percentage. Another senior standout at guard is Lil Carney, who is the school’s leader with 355 career assists. A two-time all-league player, Carney again played great at point guard last season with 112 assists and was one of two players to start all 27 contests. She also averaged 9.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. Senior center Vanessa Hejnas had a monster year in which she was tabbed second team all-conference. A dominant player who defenses have to adjust around, Hejnas averaged 10.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game last season to go with a .523 shooting percentage. Senior Francesca Lee gives the Pride plenty of options at both forward and guard. She too will be a key player this year as witnessed by her 5.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest last season.

Junior Jennifer Egee will be looked at for some key outside shots after averaging 7.9 points per contest last season. She buried 33 percent of her three-point attempts and was one of seven players to compete in all 27 contests last season. Sophomore Ally Ferrucci is another weapon for the Pride at point guard and again will see time in that role. She ended last season with just under three assists per contest and started in nine contests. Sophomores Courtney Colella and Kristina Reiter also are capable of scoring key baskets off the bench. Sophomores Raven Jones, Paige Davis and Aleia Glick also look to be factors this season. Widener welcomes four newcomers in Caitlin Horan, Brianna Wylie, Sarah Engman and Nikki Sutliff. The Pride begin the season November 16 against Delaware Valley at the McDaniel Tip-Off Tournament and then face either McDaniel or Emory & Henry the next day. Commonwealth Conference play starts November 28 at home vs. Elizabethtown and ends February 16 at home vs. Arcadia. Widener makes a trip to North Jersey to play in the Montclair State Holiday Tournament December 29-30 against Vassar and either Washington (MD) or the host school. The top five teams in the league play in the conference tournament February 18-23.

NCAA TOURNAMENT TEAMS / COACHES / AWARDS The 1982 team made history as Widener’s first women’s squad to compete in the NCAA Tournament. Coached by Gigi Hagan, the Pioneers amassed a school-best 19-7 record, won the second of two straight division titles and were paced by a lethal duo. Maureen McGinn capped her career by being named Middle Atlantic Conference Southern Division MVP a second straight year and all-league a fourth time. Averaging over 20 points per game in 1981-82, McGinn left as the school’s leading scorer with 1,935 points. Annette Angelotti, a three-time all-conference honoree, averaged over 16 points per contest that season. She graduated in 1983 as the school’s second leading scorer with 1,568 points. The 2004 squad relied on a dependable starting lineup to carry the school to another NCAA Tournament berth. The squad recorded an 18-10 record, a seven-game winning streak in mid-season and a memorable run through the Commonwealth Conference Tournament. Nikki Carden finished her three-year career by being named first team all-conference and honorable mention All-ECAC. She averaged 13.7 points that season and nailed a school-record 56 three-pointers. Nicole Stanley, who started every game, was tabbed second team all-league by scoring 10.1 points and dishing 2.3 assists. Chelsea Luhta poured in a team-best 14.1 points per contest and grabbed 7.0 rebounds per game. She graduated in 2006 as the school’s second leading scorer with 1,679 points. Erin Nemshick paced the squad with 9.8 rebounds per game, including an astounding 3.8 offensive rebounds, and also made 28 starts. Kate Smyth netted 7.5 points per game and closed second on the team with 2.6 assists. Widener’s run in the conference tournament began at Messiah, which entered unblemished in 14 league games. That mark would change thanks to Carden’s 31 points and Luhta’s 18 in a 69-64 triumph. The Falcons were held to just 26 percent shooting in the second half. The final at Moravian saw Widener erase a 15-point halftime deficit for a 71-68 victory. The Pioneers in the second half shot 53 percent from the floor, held the Greyhounds to 22 percent and outscored them, 46-28. Carden scored Widener’s last eight points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 21 seconds left for a 70-68 cushion. She hit 1-of-2 from the line with eight seconds remaining for the final margin. Carden ended with 16 points, including 13 points and three 3-pointers in the second half. Luhta netted 15 points, Nemshick had 14 and 12 rebounds, and Stanley poured in 13 points.

The calendar in 2009 did not read 2004, but it might as well have. The Pride again finished with an 18-10 record as the fourth seed, beat nationally ranked Messiah in the league semifinals on February 25 and won at the No. 2 seed (Lebanon Valley) in the final three days later. It was the crowning achievement for Beth Dessart Mager, a four-year player who displayed as much passion for the game not seen in a while for Widener. She was tabbed conference tournament MVP after finishing with 34 points and 15 rebounds in two games, playing all 90 minutes. Barbara Fleming was picked first team all-league by scoring over 13 points per game and Casey Pritz was tabbed the league’s Rookie of the Year, finishing with nine double-doubles. Lindsey Isler and Becky Tyler also were valuable members of the squad and rounded out a strong starting lineup. Widener kicked it into gear with a critical January 28 win at Lebanon Valley, beginning a stretch in which it won five of its next six league games. A 60-57 victory at Messiah in the semifinals snapped the team’s 10-game skid against the national power and had Widener again on the verge of history. Dessart Mager closed with 19 points, hitting the go-ahead jumper with 1:20 left. The 75-72, double-overtime triumph at Lebanon Valley was the classic game one played or watched with their heart and stomach. No team led by more than five after intermission and Widener prevailed with Fleming pouring in 24 points and Dessart Mager adding 15 and 11 rebounds.
