Both men’s and women’s basketball teams made it to the CCC playoffs this year, though both fell short of the championship game.

The women’s team ended their season in the first playoff game against fourth seed Western New England, dropping out of the competition with an 80-75 loss.

The women ended their season at fifth in the conference. They held a 12-14 overall record, 10-8 in the conference.

The men’s team fared better, gaining a victory from their first playoff game against the sixth seed Roger Williams in a 61-46 win.

After advancing to the semifinals, the men lost to second seed Endicott in a nail-biting game that went into overtime, the score holding at 66-66 at the end of the second half. ENC ultimately lost in overtime, the game ending 87-80.

Endicott won the CCC championship game on Saturday, Feb. 28.

The men’s basketball team ended their season with a 22-5 overall record, 14-4 season record. They landed third in the conference at the end of the season, just behind Endicott and Nichols.

For the most part, both the men’s and women’s teams will stay intact for the 2015-16 basketball season, assuming all players return and only the seniors leave.

The men’s team only loses one senior next year, Alex Jarman (Portsmouth, R.I.). The women will lose two seniors, Tina Corey (Canterbury, Conn.) and Mhiah Vickers (Westlake Village, Calif.).
