Carthage’s Kuzmanic nets region honor

1

Carthage basketball player Stephanie Kuzmanic was named first-team All-Central Region by D3hoops.com on Wednesday.

As a first-team all-region honoree, the junior point guard from Mount Prospect, Ill., advances to the national ballot for consideration as a D3hoops.com All-American.

A starter in all 29 games, Kuzmanic led the Reds in scoring (13.6), assists (5.6), 3-point field-goal percentage (.441 at 30-of-68) and minutes played (31.6). She was also second on the team in steals (53), blocked shots (21) and free-throw percentage (.827 at 81-of-98).

WHITEWATER — Carthage College women’s basketball coach Tim Bernero really wanted former Central High School standout Abbie Reeves to play for him, and he also said Reeves felt the same way.

WHITEWATER — Talk about finishing with a flourish.

The Carthage women’s basketball team put together a 15-0 run in the final 4 minutes, 19 seconds to knock off Thomas More College, 72-55, in the first round of the NCAA Division III Tournament on Friday night at UW-Whitewater’s Kachel Gymnasium.

Tournament time is like a cram session for college basketball teams.

With limited time to prepare when you learn who your next opponent is, you gather tape quickly, try to get a head start and mine whatever tips you can from sources in the basketball community to dissect an opponent you may have never seen play live before.

Reds a model of consistency

KENOSHA — Carthage women’s basketball coach Tim Bernero wants to make one thing clear.

His program is no four-year wonder.

Carthage women win CCIW Tournament title

7

KENOSHA — If you had to make a checklist of what it takes to win a conference championship game against a tough, worthy adversary, that list would likely include — in any order — making your free throws, shutting down the other team’s top offensive threat and getting major contributions from your role players.

The Carthage women’s basketball team checked all those boxes, then the Reds cut down the nets Saturday night.

If nothing else, the goal of the North Central women’s basketball team is to make its opponents extremely uncomfortable.

For whatever reason, the Cardinals’ style has the opposite effect on Carthage’s Alexis Hahn.

KENOSHA — The Carthage women’s basketball team captured its first outright College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin title this season with a sparkling 13-1 mark in league play.

Couple that with a strong non-conference schedule and a sterling overall record, and the Reds are all but a lock to be in the NCAA Division III Tournament field when the brackets are announced Monday.

KENOSHA — Cailee Corcoran could’ve worn a path to the bench substituting in and out of Tuesday’s game.

But it was her final substitution out that was most memorable for the senior forward.

Carthage women take aim at outright CCIW title

KENOSHA — While it shared the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin title with Millikin in 1996, the Carthage women’s basketball program has never captured an outright league championship.

That can be accomplished Saturday when first-place Carthage (19-4, 11-1 CCIW) takes on second-place Wheaton (20-3, 10-2) at 5 p.m. at King Arena.

KENOSHA — What had been a ho-hum chase for a women’s basketball championship in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin suddenly got interesting on Saturday when visiting Illinois Wesleyan handed Carthage its first league loss of the season 76-75 in overtime at Tarble Arena.

The Reds (19-4 overall, 11-1 CCIW) went into the game with the defending NCAA Division III national champions with what appeared to be a commanding two-game lead with three to play.

KENOSHA — It was a math equation that left Carthage women’s basketball coach Tim Bernero absolutely perplexed.

Carthage men’s, women’s teams match up against Millikin

KENOSHA — It will be a matchup between teams heading in opposite directions when the Carthage men’s basketball team hosts Millikin in a College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin game at 7:30 Saturday night at Tarble Arena.

The Red Men (9-9, 4-3 CCIW) have won four of their last five to move into a three-way tie for third place in the eight-team league, while the Big Blue (7-11, 3-4) have lost four in a row to fall to sixth place.

The first-place Carthage (14-3, 6-0) women’s basketball team can finish the first half of its CCIW schedule with a perfect record if it wins tonight’s 7:30 game at North Park (12-5, 3-3).

“It would be a nice position to be in heading into the second half of the conference season, because we know teams are going to be making adjustments in how they play us from the first half of the season,” Reds coach Tim Bernero said after Saturday’s victory over Wheaton.

Kuzmanic leads Reds to a 32-point victory

KENOSHA — It seems like every time Stephanie Kuzmanic touches the basketball, something good happens for the women’s basketball team at Carthage College.

Kuzmanic scored the first points of Friday’s College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin showdown with Wheaton College when a pass intended for another teammate found its way to the junior guard from Mount Prospect, Ill., under the basket for an easy layup.

KENOSHA — After losing three starters from a team that advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Division-3 Tournament last season, junior guard Stephanie Kuzmanic knew there’d be doubts as to how good the Carthage women’s basketball team would be this season.

If Elmhurst had any doubts, they would’ve evaporated after Wednesday, and the rest of the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin is probably feeling the same way.

Carthage women return home Wednesday

After playing three of its first four CCIW games on the road, the first-place Carthage women’s basketball team returns home with a game against Elmhurst 7:30 tonight at Tarble Arena.
