    The Captain Anchors the Team

    1/19/15 - Men's Basketball


    The Red Hawks are making adjustments on the fly because of roster changes. Players like David Noel, who is the team captain and in his second and final season,  is setting the tempo on how to win. Noel stepped-up huge in the previous game against the Suffolk Community College Sharks. He scored an efficient 32 points on just 11 of19 shots, leading the Red Hawks to a 75-62 victory.

    The Red Hawks started off slow in the first 5 minutes, trailing 5-12, but then the team started moving the ball around. With 13:42 left in the first half, Kareem Brown nailed a 3-pointer to bring the Red Hawks within 2. A minute later, David Noel stole the ball for an easy layup. Following that, Noel scored and was fouled, giving the Red Hawks their first lead of the game (20-19). Noel single-handedly kept the Red Hawks in the game through much of the first half. Coach Ben Chobhaphand decided to go with the two big men Charles Williams and Aluceny Berete, which allowed the Red Hawks to significantly outrebound the Sharks. Williams lead the way for the Red Hawks with 13 rebounds and was a defensive presence inside the paint, blocking 6 shots. To be sure, the Red Hawks won as a unit, but Noel played an integral role in the victory over the Sharks. Noel made his imprint on the game early, scoring buckets when needed, converting steals to easy baskets and making timely 3-pointers.

    Coach Chobhaphand, when asked about the team's slow start to the game and David Noel stepping up, responded, " That's the reason why he (Noel) is [the] captain, he's been working hard all season. (Noel) does what he has to do academically and the team captain showed up today. When we lose a couple of guys, he steps up with his leadership." There are players playing in new spots and asked to do more during this adjustment period before the playoffs start. Coach Chobhaphand hopes to have figured things out by then. It does, however, make it considerably easier for Chobhaphand to know he can rely on Noel in the interim.

    1/8/15 - Women's Basketball

    The Lady Red Hawks went into Tuesday’s game with five healthy players to play against the Kingsborough Wave. Coach Alfaro said his game plan was, “To stay hydrated and stay out of foul trouble.” The message was heard as the Ladies in Red, won in a decisive manner 75 to 33.

    From the tip off the Lady Red Hawks controlled the game at their own pace. Four of the five Red Hawks scored in double figures. Kailyn Richburg had a double-double 17 points, 10 assist and 6 steals. Kristen Deer collected a double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

    The next game is at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) at 5:30 pm, the first of a double with the Red Hawks men playing afterwards at 7:30 pm. It is an easy commute to BMCC

    #15 LaGuardia Red Hawks Knock Off #3 Sullivan Generals

    12/15/2014 | Box Score

    The LaGuardia Red Hawks took down the #3 ranked team in the nation this past Sunday when they defeated the Sullivan Generals by a score of 80-73.


    "This was our second time bouncing back after a loss," said LaGuardia coach Ben Chobhaphand, whose team is ranked #15 in the country. "It's only one game, but we overcame adversity to beat a nationally ranked powerhouse. That shows the great character of our team."

    Earlier in the year, the team responded to losing a conference game against Bronx by defeating Division II Community College of Rhode Island 61-57. This week, after suffering a hard-fought 84-74 loss to the #7 ranked BMCC Panthers on Thursday, the team was up to the challenge once again.


    The Red Hawks grabbed the lead early and hardly trailed throughout the game. Sophomore shooting guard Nick Padgett had a breakout game, scoring 25 points, grabbing 5 rebounds and dishing out 5 assists. Brooklyn native Kareem Brown, who earned CUNYAC Male Player of the Week honors earlier in the season, came off the bench to add 11 points in the game.


    Keith Gardner's defense was an integral part of the Red Hawks' victory, according to Chobhaphand. The forward successfully limited the amount of quality scoring chances Sullivan's top players had throughout the game.
