Emily Gins: Women's Basketball

Emily Gins
Emily Gins has been selected as the Springfield College Female Maroon Club Athlete of the Week after helping to lead the Pride to its first New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship since 2006. With the conference crown, the Pride earned an automatic bid into the 2014 NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship tournament.

The win capped off a simply remarkable turnaround for the women's basketball team, who a season ago finished last in the NEWMAC with a 4-20 record and failed to even make the conference tournament. As the sixth seed, Springfield became the lowest seeded team to ever win a NEWMAC Women's Basketball Championship.

The Pride had a tough road to the crown, upsetting No. 3 Coast Guard, 57-54 in the quarterfinals, No. 2 Wheaton, 78-63 in the semifinals, and top-seeded Smith, 51-43 in the championship game.

Gins was stellar in the three conference tournament games, tallying 30 points and 30 rebounds. In the title game, the Fort Myers, Fla. native shot a remarkable 11-for-12 from the foul line, including sinking four free throws in the final 14 seconds of the game. She finished with 13 points and 14 rebounds.

Against Wheaton, the sophomore posted nine points and 12 boards and in the win over Coast Guard, she tallied eight points and four rebounds.
