Team Overview

The 2018-19 Cyclone women’s basketball team is one of the most successful in the college’s history. They claimed an Illinois Skyway Collegiate Conference championship with an undefeated record and only had one loss during the regular season. They’ve also set a few college records, including being ranked No. 3 in the NJCAA Division II, the highest placement they’ve seen since the 1984-85 Moraine Valley team reached No. 5; longest winning streak, exceeding the previous record of 26; and most points scored on average for the season at 86.3.

Starting sophomore guard, Ashley Hunter, surpassed 1,000 points in her career at Moraine Valley and is now ranked second for top scorers. She has averaged 16.7 points per game.

Giving Hunter some serious help are transfer players Hennessey Handy and the Ruzevich twins, Julia and Kate. Handy, a guard, has averaged 16.6 points and 5. 3 assists per game. Kate Ruzevich, a forward, has averaged 9.8 rebounds while Julia Ruzevich, a forward, has averaged 18.1 points to lead the Cyclones.

Because of their cohesiveness and skill, any player has been able to come off the bench and contribute to this successful and memorable season.
