Albany, NY- The Sage Colleges' women's basketball team was honored once again with the release of the 2018 D3Hoops.com regional teams. Sage's women's basketball head coach Allison Coleman was named the East Coach of the Year, while senior forward Gen Schoff (Little Falls, NY/Little Falls) was named the East Region Third Team.
Coleman, who just wrapped her fourth season at Sage led the Gators to a second place showing in the Empire 8 conference regular-season and the team's first appearance in the women's basketball tournament as a new member to the league in 2017-2018. The Gators went 18-8 overall with a 12-4 mark in Empire 8 play. The 18 wins this season is tied for the third most in school history with the 2014-2015 team, which also went 18-8 under the guidance of Coleman in her first season at Sage. The Sage women's basketball coaching staff was also honored as the Empire 8 Women's Basketball Coaching Staff of the Year by the Empire 8.
