Bloomfield, Caldwell Men, Women Prepare For CACC Hoops Playoffs With Season-Ending Shootouts

Bloomfield, Caldwell Men, Women Prepare For CACC Hoops Playoffs With Season-Ending Shootouts
BY JERRY MILANI
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Bloomfield College has a new athletics nickname for 2014-15, the Bears, and its rival 5.1 miles up Bloomfield Avenue is now known as Caldwell University, the College achieving its new status last summer. But the success of both schools in basketball remains constant.

Area Division II basketball fans got a taste of the rivalry -- and a preview of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference playoffs, at Caldwell's Newman Center on Tuesday as the local foes squared off with playoff positioning -- and home tournament games -- on the line. This time, it was Caldwell coming up with a pair of wins, its women earning the No. 1 seed in the CAAC North by virtue of a double-overtime, 87-82 win, while the Cougars men withstood a furious Bears rally to triumph, 81-72.

Both of Bloomfield's teams were NCAA tournament participants last year, the women earning the spot with a CACC championship cemented in a tournament finals victory at the Newman Center against Caldwell, and the men garnering an at-large berth after three league titles.
