For the first time in program history, the Bloomfield College women’s basketball team is headed to the NCAA Tournament. 

Behind 13 points, nine rebounds and a game-high four blocks from tournament Most Valuable Player Tierra Scott (Bear, De.), the Lady Deacons topped Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) North Division rival Caldwell College 52-41 in the league’s Tournament Final Saturday, Mar. 8 to capture their first conference crown in the program’s NCAA Division II Era (beginning in 2002).

“I am ecstatic for our women’s team, and so proud of all they have accomplished this season,” athletic director and former BC women’s basketball star Sheila Wooten ‘85 said.  “They have truly had a dream year, and have made history.  To watch them play in the NCAA Tournament will definitely be a special moment for me.  I know they will represent our school in the same outstanding way they have all season long.”

The victory gives Bloomfield (20-9) an automatic bid as the eighth seed in the upcoming NCAA East Regional Tournament, one of eight, eight-team tournaments across the nation.  The winner of each Tournament moves on to the biggest stage in Division II basketball, the Elite Eight, which will take place in Erie, Pa. Mar. 25-28.

The Lady Deacons will take on top-seeded Bentley University (29-0) in the single-elimination East Regional Friday, Mar. 14.  The Northeast-Ten Conference Tournament champions, Bentley will host the Regional in Waltham, Mass., with tip-off for the opening round contest scheduled for 6 p.m.

“I could not be more proud of this entire team, players and coaches, for what they have accomplished to this point,” first-year head coach David Caputo said of the new CACC champions.  “We have accomplished all of our goals that we set for ourselves as a team at the beginning of the year, but our work isn’t done.  We have reached the Big Dance, and now it’s time to extend our season one win at a time.  We have an amazing opportunity in front of us, and I know we will be ready for it.”
