Alumni Basketball Day 2014 Re-cap


alumni bball_dayThe Manhattanville men’s and women’s basketball teams held their annual alumni day on Saturday, January 25 before a key Freedom Conference doubleheader against King’s (Pa.), bringing back over 40 former Valiants from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s for a great day.

In addition to the alumni games and post-game meals, the Valiant women’s basketball team honored its three most recent members of the 1,000-point club with a new banner on the Kennedy Gym walls. Former Valiant greats Simona Gordon ’11, Courtney Turner ’12 and Taylor Wilson ’13 had their names and point totals raised alongside the nine other women and the 23 men who have scored 1,000 points in their careers, continuing the proud tradition of basketball at Manhattanville.

The women’s team followed up the banner raising by dominating the Lady Monarchs in an 88-68 victory, while the men’s team stormed back from a 20-point second-half deficit to stun the Monarchs with a 76-75 triumph.
