Coming into this season Clemons had to step up to replace an All-American Tiffany Patrick. Clemons is leading the team in scoring averaging 26.0 points, five assists, 4.8 rebounds, and six steals per game. She is an all around player and really filling up the stats sheet for the Cougars this season.

 

Clemons is getting help from junior Simone Smith. Clemons and Smith are a nice one-two punch. Center Simone Smith is replacing Angelica Bermudez another key player from last season. Angelica Bermudez went on to get drafted by the National Superior Basketball Female League in Puerto Rico.

 

Simone is a big compliment to the quick Naimah Clemons. Simone is currently averaging 15.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, and is shooting just a tad under 50 percent from the field.

 

The Lady Cougars have a tough road ahead as they start to hit the road with three out of the next four games being away. New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) games begin in this road trip as Kean faces Rutgers-Camden and Ramapo.

 

With the track record Michele Sharp and her Lady Cougars have, they should have no problem playing away from home. Luckily, Kean will not have to face No. 4 William Paterson until later in the season.

 

Kean will have a tough road leading up to that game including the Land of Magic Classic.

 

The Cougars are off to a plus .500 start and they have big expectations this season after a heart breaking exit last season in the Sweet 16. NCAA Tournament Champions is the new goal of these 2011-2012 ravenous Cougars.
