Dean to close year at regional all-star game

Guard Kasey Dean '14 has stepped up in every way possible for the Judges over the course of her collegiate career. Two years ago, women's basketball guard Morgan Kendrew '12 ended a storied four year-career with 974 points, 113 three-pointers and a spot in the 2012 New England Women's Basketball Association Senior All-Star Classic. The Judges needed a new leader to step in and emerge as a consistent scoring threat. Enter Dean, who has started in every game throughout the last two years and done just that for a Brandeis squad that is on the rise. After a season in which she led the team in scoring nine times and in assists on 16 different occasions, Dean has become the first player since Kendrew to earn a selection to the NEWBA Classic. This year, the annual all-star showcase will be held at Smith College on March 29. "It feels really great to be recognized, but of course, it wouldn't be possible without our successful season," she said. "We came together in some really big games and I wish others on the team could also be recognized, but this should be a great experience." The NEWBA Classic is an event that seeks to honor outstanding seniors from Division III schools across New England. Players from around the region receive nominations from both their coaches and sports information directors and are placed on a ballot.

Mattos looks to build upon national results

Foilist Caroline Mattos '16 entered the final pool of the 2014 NCAA Regionals at Wellesley College on March 9 with all of the momentum on her side. She secured a 5-1 record in the opening round and made her way to the finals on the heels of a victory over Harvard University senior Alex Kiefer, the tournament's eventual silver medalist. In the finals, however, Mattos hit a wall and limped to a 2-3 start in the final pool. "My greatest challenge has been controlling my head game," she said.
