Immaculata Athletics coordinated a food drive across campus to aid the Chester
County Food Bank. With the help of the campus community, 350 pounds of non-
perishable food items were collected and delivered to the Food Bank. Canned food
items were collected in different offices around campus and food drives were set up at
home basketball games in an effort to fight hunger in the local community.
Head men’s basketball coach Terrence Stewart will be
inducted into the Philadelphia Area Small College Coaches
Association Hall of Fame for his outstanding playing career
at Rowan University. The Hall of Fame induction ceremony
will take place on the campus of the University of the
Sciences on Tuesday, April 8.
Stewart played at Rowan from 1992 to 1996. Stewart
guided the Profs to the NCAA Tournament during all four
of his seasons, including three trips to the Final Four.
Rowan finally broke through in Stewart’s final season of
1996 by claiming the national championship, where Stewart
was named the MVP of the tournament. In 1995-96
Stewart was also named to the Columbus Multimedia
All-America First Team and All-Atlantic Region First
Team as well as the NABC (National Association of
Basketball Coaches) All-Atlantic First Team.
Stewart earned All-NJAC (New Jersey Athletic Confer-
ence) honors on three occasions. He finished his playing
career at Rowan as the school’s all-time leading scorer with
1,628. That mark stood until 2008. He also had 553 career
rebounds and 237 career assists.
Immaculata’s men’s basketball team entered the Colonial States Athletic Confer-
ence (CSAC) playoffs as the fourth seed and hosted the fifth-seeded Rosemont
Ravens (12-14) at Alumnae Hall. The Ravens ended the Mighty Macs (11-15) season
with an 80-69 triumph. CSAC also released their men’s basketball end-of-season
awards and two Mighty Macs were recognized for their accomplishments this season.
Junior Mamadou Diakite earned Second Team All-CSAC with a strong first season
at Immaculata, and junior Will DeSantis was named to the CSAC Sportsmanship
Team. The Mighty Macs finished the season with a 11-15 overall record.
