2009-10 Season in Review

Panthers Win Skyline, Punch First-Ever NCAA Tourney Tic 
Honors Roll in for Billups, Orgias and Charney  

Purchase, NY (Mar. 23, 2010) – When the Skyline Conference preseason projections came out, the league poll had Purchase finishing fourth this winter.

NCAATourneylogo.gifThe upstart Panthers, who reached the Skyline quarterfinals in 2009, used the ranking as motivation. Sure, they had gone pretty much from worst to first a season ago, making the jump from three to 15 wins, but didn’t the conference recognize how talented and loaded this year’s roster would be, adding center Charles Thompson to a mix that included All-Skyline returnee Marvin Billups and standout Corey Orgias, not to mention star transfer Michael McNair?

Well, if the conference didn’t get the notice, they sure learned their lesson come tournament time as the Panthers won their first title since rejoining the NCAA by topping No. 1 SUNY College at Old Westbury in the championship. No. 3 Purchase, who downed No. 2 St. Joseph’s College-LI in the semifinals, took care of the rival Panthers 92-76 to grab the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament – another first for the greatest team in program history.

BILLPOY.JPGAfter all, they featured the best scoring team in the conference (77.3 ppg).

The top scorer in the league (Billups).

The conference leader in steals (Justin Walters – for the second straight season).

And the most explosive Sixth Man (McNair).


Head coach Jeff Charney, who took over midway through the 2007-08 season, rebuilt Purchase into a championship contender, leading the squad to a 15-11 overall record and a 10-8 mark in 2008-09. This year's team finished third in the conference at 14-6 and went 20-9 overall after falling to St. Mary’s of Maryland 88-59 in the first round of the NCAA tourney. The Panthers led regional host St. May’s early, but fell to the team that for a second straight season would have a return trip to the “Sweet 16.”

The Panthers enjoyed a season filled with memorable moments. They traveled to Springfield, Massachusetts to participate in a holiday tournament, reaching the championship game before falling to host Springfield 66-61 in the final. Billups became the first to win the tournament MVP from a losing team.

Purchase also defeated all of its Skyline opponents through the course of the season, spending some time in first place. The Panthers clinched the No. 3 seed and went on to down rival Yeshiva in the quarterfinals at home, setting the stage for upset wins in the semifinals and championship.

The Panthers became one of 61 teams dancing in March, when the DIII Men’s Basketball Committee announced the field for the hoops tourney on March 1.

The No. 14 St. Mary’s of Maryland Seahawks, ranked No. 1 in the NCAA Middle Atlantic Regional poll, won the 2010 Capital Athletic Conference championship title in an 80-76 victory over Wesley College on Feb. 27.  

No championship season would be complete without the honors that follow. At the end of the season, Billups was named Skyline Conference Men’s Basketball Player of the Year, while fellow co-captain Orgias garnered an All-Skyline 2nd Team selection. Billups was later named to All-Atlantic 1st Team, and Charney was named D3Hoops All-Atlantic Coach of the Year.   

Championship hardware, postseason accolades and a roster with no seniors have the confident Panthers poised for a repeat run in 2010-11. Purchase returns the “Big Three” of Billups, Orgias and Thompson as well as standout guards McNair and Walters, and underclassmen John Simmons, Angel Gonzalez, Andre Nixon, Kevin Major, Jr. , Maurice Richardson, Joseph Ray and Marc Baclija

2008-09 Season in Review

Panthers Make Stunning Turnaround in '08-09
Billups, Lewis Named to All-Skyline Team 

Purchase, NY (Feb. 26, 2009) – To steal from the old cliché, “What a difference a year makes.”

From 3-22 a year ago to 15 wins and a playoff berth. That was the story for the Purchase College men’s basketball team this winter. In his first full season behind the bench, head coach Jeff Charney led the Panthers from last place to the Skyline Conference Tournament.

Purchase would fall in the quarterfinal at Old Westbury, but there is no doubt that the program is on the right track to remain competitive and possibly challenge for a league crown for years to come.  

For starters, Purchase’s underclassmen are among the best in the league. Sophomore sensation Marvin Billups dominated, leading the conference in scoring (23.1 ppg) this season. Then there’s sophomore’s Justin Walters, Tyriq Harrington, Corey Orgias and maybe top recruit Chuck Thompson ready to return next fall. Walters led the league in steals and teamed with Harrington as one of the top guard duos off the bench this year.

Senior Day 2009

The Panthers will miss backcourt starters Jerrell Lewis and Chad Charney and front court standouts Kazeem Famuyide and Henry Ferrarin, but are excited about the prospects of returning such a strong core of underclassmen. Purchase will also look to replace valuable bench contributors Chris Evangelista and Owen Mann.

Lewis was named to the All-Skyline Second Team this winter. Billups garnered All-Skyline First Team honors and became the first in Purchase basketball history to be named to the D3 All-Atlantic Region Second Team, which would then by followed by a prestigious ECAC All-Star Second Team honor.

Six seniors might be gone from the roster next season, but with two starters returning in Billups and Orgias, and Harrington, Walters and Thompson set to fill the void in 2009-10 left by the departing seniors, the sky is the limit for the Panthers next winter.

2007-08 Season in Review

Under Charney, Panthers Show Signs of Improvement

Purchase, NY With four starters returning next season, the Purchase College men’s basketball team can look back on the 2007-08 campaign as an important rebuilding year for the program. Despite only winning three games, the Panthers have found themselves a new head coach to steer the ship in the right direction. Jeff Charney, who replaced Denny Carroll midseason, has had his interim tag removed and embarks on his first full season as head coach next winter.

The valiant Panthers looked much improved in the second half of the season under Charney, learning a completely new system. High-scoring point guard Tyriq Harrington (FR/ Corona, NY) had a strong rookie season. Harrington led the Skyline Conference in scoring, averaging 18.6 points per game. He also led the Panthers in steals with 50, and assists with 71.

For his efforts, the playmaker was named to the All-Skyline Second Team. Harrington was not the only newcomer to show promise, as forward Kazeem Famuyide (JR/Staten Island, NY) was a solid contributor as well. Famuyide finished second on the team in scoring with 13.5 points, as well as grabbing the second most rebounds on the team.

The rebounding leader this season was co-captain Henry Ferrarin (SR/Irvington, NY), who finished averaging nine rebounds to go with his 8.9 points per game this season. The Panthers also found some success behind the 3-point line this season.

Co-captain Michael Wimmer (SR/Woodmere, NY) led the Skyline Conference in 3-point point percentage, finishing at 50 percent for the year in conference play.

Chad Charney (SR/Port Chester, NY) also stretched the floor for the Panthers, highlighted by a 9-for-12 performance from behind the arc at St. Joseph’s College. Maurice Richardson (FR/Elmont, NY), who played off the bench and also saw some time in the starting lineup, also made great strides in his first collegiate season. Reserves Jeremy Sullivan (JR/New Rochelle, NY), Chris Evangelista (JR/Shelter Island, NY) and Marc Flaxman (SO/ Bronxville, NY) also made solid contributions for the team.

2006-07 Men's Basketball Season

2006-2007 Panther Outlook

Check out some of the reasons why Purchase Basketball is such an outstanding choice. Denny Carroll and his staff are convinced that Purchase College is THE academic and athletic choice for you! Please contact the coaching staff with any questions you might have. Best of luck to you and your team this upcoming season!

Men's Basketball 2005-2006 Season Recap

The '05-'06 Season started with the hiring of a new head coach, Denny Carroll, and assistant coach, Darryl Atkinson, both of which set the stage for building a respectable basketball program. This past season proved to be a learning experience for the team as a whole. With our re-entry into the NCAA Division III ranks and our membership in the newly formed North Eastern Athletic Conference the team experienced a much higher level of competition, faced higher caliber athletes as well as elevated commitment levels in the teams they competed against. The team learned what it will take to be successful in the future in this new arena. Despite the team's record the athletes improved their individual skill levels and learned a lot about themselves. Both coaches have been doing a significant recruiting job bringing in new players for next year's season. Our goals for next season are to bring in more talented players, more energy, commitment and a greater focus for improving the entire program.

Men's Basketball 2004 Preview

After struggling early last season with adjustments under Coach Joe Ross, the Panthers look to build on a strong second half that took them to the finals of the Hudson Valley Men’s  Athletic Conference tournament. 

bballWhile All-Conference selections Steve Sage and Marc Pierre will be missed, this year’s squad returns a solid core of experience and talent including Akantunde Henderson-Amare, Peter Tambakis, Benny Rupel, Desmond Turner, Jamal Ien, and Richie Rivera.  Coaches Ross and John McLoughlin also look for major contributions from newcomers Adam Kalker, Clinton Lowe, Jaison Correa-Spain, Chad Charney, Carlton Wilson, Mike Wimmer, Dan Minieri, and Fred Gibson.

Look for Rupel, Minieri, and Wilson to bring a strong inside presence, along with a balanced Panther attack that finds at least six student -athletes equipped to play two and three positions each.  “We learned a lot about each other last year.  These guys hung tough and it is time for them to see those efforts pay off,”  explains Coach Ross.  “People will see a core that is relentless, intense, and intelligent.  We look forward to putting it together this season.”
