Head Coach Andy Yosinoff and Ramirez-Tejada will lead the Saints on the team's hunt for the program's second-straight and 17th-overall Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Championship this winter after posting a 24-6 overall record, including an 11-1 mark versus GNAC foes, last season. Ranked 11th in the final 2019 NCAA DIII Northeast Regional Rankings, the Saints led the nation last season in assists per game and were among the national leaders in several other categories including total assists, total rebounds, total points, scoring offense, rebounds per game, steals, defensive rebounds per game, and offensive rebounds per game.
The Saints are coming off of a record season, during which Yosinoff became the winningest coach in NCAA Division III women's basketball program history. Last season was full of personal accolades for Ramirez-Tejada as well, who became the 24th Emmanuel player to surpass the 1,000-point plateau. As a junior, she was also named First Team All-Conference, NEWBA Second Team All-Region, and D3hoops.com Second Team All-Region.
The new season opens with the EC Tip Off Classic on November 16th at 3:00 p.m. against Saint Joseph's College of Brooklyn. Read more about the team's D3hoops preseason rankings and follow along with the Saints' progress this weekend here.
