WALTHAM, Mass. - The Bloomfield College women’s basketball team gave the nation’s best team all it could handle in the opening round of the NCAA East Regional Tournament on Mar. 14, but ultimately fell to top-seeded Bentley College 80-65 to end the 2013-2014 season.

The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) champions and automatic NCAA qualifiers, the Lady Deacons concluded their historic season with a 20-10 record overall record and the program’s first CACC Tournament championship and NCAA Tournament appearance.

Rookie guard Tianna Smith (Nanuet, N.Y.) led Bloomfield with 18 points and six rebounds in the loss, while sophomore Ariel Wilson (Chesapeake, Va.) totaled 12 points and four assists.  Junior center Tierra Scott (Bear, De.) notched 11 points and eight rebounds in the setback.

“Our team should be so proud of what they have accomplished this year, and of how they played in this game,” athletic director Sheila Wooten said.  “They have made history this year, and this is a season they will remember for the rest of their lives.  I could not be more proud of them for what they did this season.”

"We gave the #1 team in the nation all they could handle," head coach David Caputo added after the game.  "Everyone said we gave them their toughest challenge they have had all year.  I'm very proud of all that we accomplished this season.  We will be back."
