Posted Jan 2/15 - Congratulations Kelly!

Kelly Douglas - Clifton High School

Kelly Douglass - Signs With Hartford University - Class of 2019!

Kelly, a ***First Team All Passaic County*** player and ***1,000 Point Scorer*** signed on with Hartford in August, 2014.

Such a hard worker, Kelly prepared herself physically and mentally for this day, so when the call came, she was ready.

A team leader, Kelly helped lead the Gazelles to a 5-1 record at the Bluechip Invitational in Lancaster PA.  The only loss coming to the Lady Runnin' Rebels by 4 points.  Similarly, she led us to a 5-0 record at the US Junior Nationals in Washington D.C. and the playoffs where we took game 1 of 3 but lost the second, also by 4 points, and unfortunately, we lost to the team who went on to take home the trophy.

We look forward to seeing more from Kelly in the years to come at Hartford!

Posted Dec 27/14 - Congratulations Brianne!

UPDATE: Former NJ Gazelle - Brianne Traub

University of the Sciences' Brianne Traub has been named the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week for her performance during the Devils four games for the week that ended on December 21, 2014. 

This is the second time this season that Traub has earned Player of the Week honors, having been named Co-player of the Week for the week ending December 1, 2014.  She was also named to the CACC Honor Roll for the week ending December 8, 2014.  Brianne joins Caldwell University's Emily Caswell and Philadelphia University's Najah Jacobs as multiple Player of the Week Award recipients this season. 

Traub (Eastern Christian HS/Wayne, N.J.)  led the Devils to their first ever 4-0 week, averaging 19.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. 

The senior guard contributed 15 points and four rebounds in the Devils 66-65 upset of then fifth-ranked University of Tampa on Tampa's home court.  Her three-point field goal with 4:38 left triggered the rally that saw the Devils overcome a nine-point deficit to win the game.  Brianne also had two key steals in the second half (three for the game).   The day, playing at St. Leo University, Traub poured in 26 points while grabbing eight rebounds as the Devils completed a two game Florida sweep with a 74-65 win. She also had four steals in the game. 

Returning home for the Devils third game in four days, Traub had her best performance of the week, tossing down 21 points on 8-10 shooting from two-point range and 8-15 shooting overall from the field as the Devils defeated first-place Holy Family University 65-53.  It was only their second win over the Tigers dating back to March 2006.  Traub also pulled down a season-high 14 rebounds.   The senior closed out her week with a 15-point, eight-rebound effort in the Devils 80-48 rout of Georgian Court University while playing just 22 minutes. 

For the week, Traub scored 77 points, pulled down 34 rebounds, shot 41.3% from the field, 73.1% from the free throw line; recorded eight steals and five assists. 

The former Eastern Christian High School athlete is in her fourth and final season of play for the Devils. 

Traub is a three-time all-CACC honoree and was the conference's Rookie of the Year in 2012.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brianne Traub - Eastern Christian High School
Brianne, 2010-2011 player of the year (Star-Ledger) the pure offensive machine, a 2,000 point scorer for Eastern Christian (2,158), 600 in her senior season!  She demonstrated her offensive prowess playing for the Gazelles last season and brought both her incredibly lethal shooting ability combined with her high basketball IQ.  A big guard with ball skills, attitude and confidence, Brianne continually put that confidence on display, shooting the ball and finishing equally with the left or right hand.

Always one to quickly share the credit with her teammates, Brianne is a coaches dream, always eager to learn, extremely hard working and with a smile on her face.  First one in the gym, last one out.

Naturally, Brianne has taken her talent and skills to the next level with the University Sciences Blue Devils, named "CACC Rookie of the Year!".  Also voted to the CACC all conference, second team.  The sky's the limit for Bri.

Posted Jan 10/13 - Congratulations Icies!

Icies Hammer - North Bergen High School

***1,000 Point Scorer***

(230 Free Throws Made - 500 Rebounds)

2015 Update:

Icies Hammer, North Bergen, Sr. C

Averaged 24 points, 11.6 rebounds and 3.6 steals in three wins last week. Is averaging 21.1 points through nine games for the Bruins.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Hudson County - Player of the year!

Icies - The 6-foot Sophomore averaged 15 points and 5.2 rebounds per game this past season leading North Bergen to a 16-9 record including a 14 point, 10 rebound performance in a 47-46 victory over Morris Knolls in the first round of the NJSIAA North 1, Group 4 tournament.  At such a young age, Icies has become a confident and feared post presence.

Icies' game has improved dramatically over her Freshman campaign during which she received recognition as a Second Team Hudson County player.

We will see many more powerful performances from this young sophomore in the years ahead.  Stay tuned.

 

Posted Jan 2/13 - Congratulations Jenna!

Jenna Ramos - Bergen Tech High School

Jenna, a sophomore, is a young player with a large upside.

A starter for the Knights, she has used her strength, both physical and mental to help lead her team in a successful 2013 campaign.

Jenna is a well rounded player, she can handle the ball, use her strength to take it to the hoop or fire off a three pointer if left open.  She has the stamina and physical attributes to play both sides of the ball and shows poise under pressure.

Expectations are big for Jenna and she continues to deliver on those expectations and she will only get better in her games and seasons ahead.
 

Posted Jan 1/13 - Congratulations Ava!

Ava Skinner - Cresskill High School

Ava has become such a confident and consistent player and leader.  Her game has improved so much both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.  She has greatly improved her ball skills and has consistently broken the press and as such, can run the point or play the 2 or 3.

Ava is the leading scorer for the Cougars this season and is approaching 1,000 points!

***1,000 Points Reached 02/28/13!***

She is a consistent scorer and can take the ball to the hoop or drain the three.  She has very good defensive footwork and takes pride in her defensive effort.  Ava often finds herself defending the opponents best player.

Ava is drawing a lot of attention from college coaches who see what an asset she would be to their program!

Posted Mar 6/12 - Congratulations Margi!
Margi Rivara - Glen Rock High School

Margi scored her 1,000th point this season, only the third player in Glen Rock team history to accomplish the feat.  She is a terrific shooter both set and off the dribble.

Margi's quick release forces defences to focus their attentions on her and she drew the attentions of every team she faced this season and still, she was able to score more than 500 points, including 40 three pointers and 69 free throws.  With her leaping ability, Margi is not only a prolific scorer but she is also leathal on the boards.

A 5'9" guard, Margi has both an inside and outside game, she can take the ball to the rack, has a lethal pull up and can drill a fade away.  Her confidence has grown over the years developing her into a team leader for the Gazelles who gained the admiration of her teammates for her attitude, focus and heart.

Margi has demonstrated a full array of offensive weapons, on display each game against the best teams in her league while averaging 20+ points per game ranking her 15th in the State!

Posted Mar 5/12 - Congratulations Kim!
Kimberly Douglass - Clifton High School

As the team's point guard, Kim lead the Mustangs in scoring, averaging 12.5 points per game, with a dozen three pointers and dropping in 54 free throws, while averaging 5 rebounds and 2 steals per game.  Known for her toughness and scrappy play, Kim's resolve and heart make her one of the leading point guards in Passaic County.

At 5'9" Kim is a difficult cover at the point but she shows her versatility by also displaying her skills at the 2 or 3 spot and her lethal shooting makes her a player opponents must always keep an eye on and in order to beat the Panthers, defenses know they must stop Kim.

As team leader, Kim pushed her team through a difficult schedule and is headed to Mt. St. Mary College where we expect and look forward to seeing her excel at the next level.

A tribute to Coach Cecil King:

Being the original founder of the Gazelles, Coach King is the inspiration behind the NJ Gazelles.  He stepped forward in our time of need to help assist in setting up the program, offering his own Gazelles program and its resources to lay the groundwork.  Without Coach King, it would have been very difficult to get the NJ Gazelles aau program up and running.

Coach King embodies everything right about aau basketball.  He is a no-nonsense gentleman in the truest sense of the word.  A gentleman who stands so much taller than his stature might lead one to believe!  Thank you Coach King for leading by example.
