Women's College Basketball
Rider Hosts Siena Friday,
Iona and Seniors on Sunday

LAWRENCEVILLE--Cue the song by the band Europe from 1986.  Because this weekend is the final countdown.

The six month grind of the college basketball season winds down Sunday afternoon as the Rider University women's basketball team takes on Iona College at 2pm Sunday in the final home games of the 2012-13 regular season.

The Broncs opened the final weekend by defeating Siena Friday evening 72-52.

Rider (15-13, 10-7 MAAC) is led by the balanced scoring attack of junior MyNeshia McKenzie (13.8 ppg.) and senior Sironda Chambers (13.0 ppg.).  McKenzie is also second in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in rebounding, averaging 9.6 a game.

The Broncs are also led by senior Caitlin Bopp who is averaging 9.5 points and 8.7 rebounds per contest.  Bopp enters the home finale as the second all-time rebounder at Rider with 897.

Iona is led by Damila Martinez at 17.5 points per game.  The Gaels are 17-11, 12-5 in the MAAC and are sitting in second place.

Iona is coming off a win over Manhattan 71-64 Thursday night.

The Gaels defeated Rider February 9 in a game seen on ESPN3.

On Sunday, Rider will honor its senior class of 2013 when the Broncs host Iona.  Bopp and Chambers, along with Dior Brown and Carleigh Brown will be recognized prior to the 2pm tip-off.

D. Brown enters the game as a 106-game veteran and is averaging 11.9 minutes of play off the bench this season.

Currently a graduate student, C. Brown is a 117-game veteran (tied for second all-time) and has over 500 points, 500 rebounds and is three assists shy of 150.  With the conference playoffs factored in, C. Brown is on pace to at least tie for the most career games played at Rider.

Chambers, a transfer from Harcum College, is averaging 11.8 points per game in her 47-game Rider career and she is currently ranked nationally in free throw percentage.

Bopp, a 105-game veteran, has 915 points to go along with her 897 rebounds and is trying to become only the second Rider player to ever compile 900 in each category.  Bronc Hall of Famer Jessica Beck had over 1,000 points and over 1,000 rebounds in her Rider career.

Tickets for all home games are available via the TicketLeap link at the top of the page.

If you can't make the game, all non-televised home games can be seen on BroncVision and MAAC.TV as part of Rider's pay per view service powered by GoBroncs.com and the audio will be simulcast on the video stream with Jeff Nolan, Dick Wiseman, Dave Polaski and Jon Mozes bringing you all of the action.  The game can also be heard on 107.7 FM The Bronc and on 1077thebronc.com via links provided on GoBroncs.com.

GameViewer (LiveStats) will also be available, free of charge via the link on GoBroncs.com and live tweets will be sent out which you can follow via twitter @RiderAthletics.

After this weekend, Rider opens play in the MAAC Quarterfinals on March 8 at a time to be determined.

The tournament runs from March 7-11 in Springfield, Massachusetts and will be held at the MassMutual Center.  For more tournament information, see the main page of GoBroncs.com and click on the tournament link at the top of the page.
