Fishbein on the shelf with mystery ailment

It comes on in different ways. I can’t give much detail because it’s different every time. I’m just trying to get some answers.  Nothing or no one has been able to stop Grace Fishbein until now … and it’s a mystery.

Fishbein, a fourth-year forward from Waterloo, Ont., and Memorial Sea-hawks top scorer last season, had to quit Saturday night’s Atlantic University Sport (AUS) game after 17 minutes due to extreme fatigue.

She’s had the problem since late August, but has usually been able to play through it.

“The doctors don’t really know what it is, so it’s a very frustrating,’ said Fishbein who sat out Sunday afternoon’s match against the University of Prince Edward Island Panthers.

Fishbein who said she was feeling better than she did Saturday night, added, “It’s always a concern when I can’t perform the way I want to. I’m going to try and get it figured out as soon as I can and get back to playing.”

That won’t happen until MUN coach Doug Partridge gets some answers.

“She’s been battling some kind of illness all semester long,” noted Partridge. “It might be allergy related, but we’re not sure.

“We really don’t have any idea what it is except it has totally zapped her energy, although it doesn’t seem to be mono,” he said.

“It’s a mystery, but she can’t get enough energy together to play games. It leaves her beyond exhaustion, so it’s not safe to play her until we get a medical answer,” added Partridge, who noted Fishbein has been to hospital about a half dozen times without coming away with anything specific to report.

Partridge said one of the reasons his team was so bad Saturday night — a 77-73 defeat at the hands of UPEI Panthers — “and one of the reasons we struggled, is that our best player doesn’t have the energy to play.

“It’s been become a bit of a distraction,” said Partridge, “and we need to move on until we can get an answer to what is happening to her physically.”

The Sea-hawks do not have any AUS matches until early January, although they plan to compete in an eight-team tournament in Montreal during the Christmas break.

While Fishbein will travel to Quebec with the team, Partridge doesn’t expect her to play.

“I’m going to try and get it figured it out as soon as I can and ge back to playing,” said Fishbein, who has trouble trying to describe how the problem manifests itself.

“It comes on in different ways. I can’t give much detail because it’s different every time,” she said. “I’m just trying to get some answers.

She is however.

“I know I’m allergic to mango, that’s all I know,” she said with a smile certain of one thing.





A Rock-solid foundation

Waterloo’s Grace Fishbein and Kim Devison had a decision to make — stay in the relative comfort of home or go out on a limb and bolt to Newfoundland after high school.

Playing CIS basketball for the Memorial University Sea-Hawks in St. John’s won out in the end for the former K-W Lightning players. It was a rock-solid decision the two have yet to regret.

“You’ve got to grow up,” said Devison, a St. David grad. “No more mom doing your laundry or making you food. That was it for me. I was such a mama’s girl that I needed to get a kick in the butt, kind of.

“It was just a decision to either stay at home or go away, and one day we were just like, ‘let’s go on a limb and just do it.’ We both called (Sea-Hawks head coach Doug Partridge) at the same time.”

Four years later, Devison and Fishbein are entering what will likely be their final year at Memorial and one final kick at an Atlantic University Sport championship appearance, something they came within six points of last season against the eventual-champion Cape Breton Capers.

They will be joined by another Lightning product, Megan Robinson, who suited up for the Resurrection Phoenix in the District 8 league last year.

It was almost by chance that the three ended up together in the same uniform.

All three went to different local high schools, all three are from different age groups and all three were recruited separately by Partridge, who first caught wind of Devison and Fishbein at a basketball camp run by Stu Julius, the former Laurier women’s basketball coach.

“They’ve really opened up Waterloo for us,” Partridge said after Saturday’s 86-39 victory over the host Warriors. “This area produces some really strong players, but they are also really good people and really friendly. It’s been an easy connection for them coming to Newfoundland.”

And the three will have a front-row seat on the drive for a title, which started last weekend with an unblemished three-game performance at University of Waterloo’s Naismith Classic tournament.

Fishbein is the offensive sparkplug for the Sea-Hawks after the Bluevale Collegiate grad finished last season as Memorial’s leading scorer and most relied-upon player, this despite arriving in St. John’s with funky shooting mechanics.

Coming into her sophomore season, the fourth-year math and physics major would go out of her way to avoid showcasing her awkward push shot, but worked with Partridge three days per week on footwork and getting her elbow position to correct form.

The improvement was dramatic. After shooting 39.1 per cent from the floor and 66.7 per cent from the foul line in her rookie season, Fishbein’s efficiency rates jumped noticeably in her second season — she sank 52.4 per cent of her field-goal attempts and 83.6 per cent of her free throws for a 9.1 points-per-game average.

Last year Fishbein averaged 16.7 PPG, and although her field goal percentage dipped to 41.8 per cent, her free-throw rate stayed relatively firm at 81.3 per cent.

“Grace has a tremendous work ethic and that’s helped her along the way,” Partridge said. “She’d live in the gym if you’d let her.”

Contributions from Devison and Robinson will be just as integral, though.

Devison, praised for her all-around, hard-nosed game by Partridge, has played some of her best games in clutch situations, including filling in for former starting point guard Brittany Dalton last season against St. Mary’s and sinking the game-winning shot in a 74-69 victory.

Meanwhile, Robinson is just the second rookie to crack the starting lineup for Partridge in almost 20 years with the program, something that former CIS scoring champion Jenine Browne didn’t accomplish in her first year at Memorial.

More importantly for the three Waterloo natives is the belief the Sea-Hawks are a deep enough team to contend for an AUS title in 2011-12 and avenge last season’s 72-66 semifinal loss to Cape Breton.

“We’ve always wanted it (an AUS title), but we’re sick of losing, we’re sick of coming so close,” Devison said. “This year particularly because we’re running out of time.”

In the meantime, the three were glad to be back home for the weekend, especially Fishbein and Devison, who spent the summer in Newfoundland.

Friends, family and former coaches came out to cheer for the three at University of Waterloo’s Physical Activities Complex as the Sea-Hawks swept aside the Warriors, Sudbury’s Laurentian University Voyageurs and the NCAA Division-2 Gannon University Golden Knights from Erie, Penn.

Fishbein was named a tournament all-star along with Waterloo’s Kate Kuntze, whose team went winless on the weekend. Warriors Mike Wright and Cam McIntyre were named to the men’s tournament all-star team as the hosts went 2-1 against Ryerson University, the University of British Columbia and Queen’s University.

“The most exciting part, honestly, is you get to do what you love in front of everyone who knows you and that you get to see them, too,” Fishbein said. “We got a few good meals too, the parents stepped up big and treated us well. It’s nice to be spoiled a little bit when you get home.”

Locals power Sea-Hawks to opening win at Naismith

 
By Christine Rivet, Record staff
October 14, 2011

WATERLOO — Memorial University coach Doug Partridge can’t think of too many situations he doesn’t want Waterloo’s silky smooth Grace Fishbein on the court at the Naismith Classic.

And the Bluevale Collegiate grad can’t think of too many places she’d rather be.

Amazing Grace is just one of Memorial University’s trio of Waterloo-reared players — all of them starters — on his St. John’s, N.L.-based Sea-Hawks.

The Sea-Hawks held off a late charge en route to a 60-55 victory over Div. 2 school Gannon University of Erie, Pa. in Friday’s opening-round action at the 44th annual Naismith Classic basketball tourney.

Fishbein, a fourth-year wing, was a woman on a mission Friday – blocking shots, diving for loose balls and scoring a clutch late-game jumper along with a pair of free throws in the final seconds to preserve the win.

“This is so exciting for so many of us,” said a sweat-soaked Fishbein referring to her fellow Sea-Hawks from Waterloo, including guard Kim Devison (St. David) and freshman point guard Megan Robinson (Resurrection).

“This is our hometown. I played (at the Naismith) two years ago and it was one of the best weekends of my life.”

Robinson exited the game in the second quarter after she hit her head on the floor although her injury is not thought to be serious, Partridge said.

A few years back Partridge recruited Fishbein and Devison at a local basketball camp. Robinson soon followed.

“We love for the Waterloo girls to be able to come back here to play at this tournament,” said Partridge whose squad meets the host University of Waterloo Warriors on Saturday at 3 p.m.

“It’s been a great connection for us with Waterloo.”

Fishbein, 20, said it’s a great opportunity for their folks, too.

“Our parents get to host the team for some meals – which they love.”

And for local basketball fans, we get a rare chance to see Fishbein, Devison and Robinson in action.

In the tourney’s other women’s game Friday, Sudbury’s Laurentian University tamed the Warriors 62-39.

Erin Simpson led the Lady Vees with 15, while Laura Burnett scored nine for the hosts.

In Friday’s men’s draw, the University of British Columbia clipped the Ryerson Rams 85-84 and Queen’s University battled the UW Warriors in the late game.

Action continues Saturday and into Sunday afternoon at the Naismith.

All games are at UW’s Physical Activities Complex.

Fishbein has 31 points in leading Memorial to first-round win over Acadia


The Memorial Sea-Hawks advanced to the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) women’s basketball semifinals by holding on for an 83-79 quarter-final win over the Acadia Axewomen before a very noisy capacity crowd of 1,800 at the Field House in St. John’s  Friday night.

Memorial will take on the top-seeded and two-time defending champion Cape Breton Capers at six o'clock tonight in one semifinal game, while the other has the St. Francis Xavier X-Women tipping off against the second-seeded University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds at 8 p.m..
St. FX defeated the Saint Mary’s Huskies 74-63 in Friday’s other quarter-final.

In the Memorial-Acadia game, the Sea-Hawks, took a 22-17 first-quarter lead with the vocal support of fans who were so loud that they made it difficult to hear the refereess whistles.

When Kim Devison hit a three-pointer to give the Sea-Hawks a 14-point lead with six minutes left in the first half, the crowd erupted. Urged on by members of MUN’s men’s basketball team, the fans started a wave. When Newfoundland music was played during a timeout, it sent the foot-stomping, hand-clapping fans into a frenzy.
 The Lady Hawks seemed to feed of the crowd’s energy and owned a 47-33 lead at the half, with the help of a brilliant 17-point effort from Grace Fishbein.
The Sea-Hawks still owned a double-digit lead (65-55) heading into the final quarter, helped by the fact Acadia missed four straight third-quarter, three-point shots in an attempt to cut the lead. But the Axewomen fought back early in the fourth quarter to reduce the deficit to six points and even battled to within three points of the Lady Hawks with 34 seconds on the clock.
Fishbein turned the ball over by taking a foul with 31 seconds to play and Acadia’s Krista More hit one of two free throws to make the score 81-79 , but time ran out on the fifth-seeded Axewomen.
Fishbein finished with 31 points to lead the Lady Hawks, the tournament’s fourth seed

Female empowerment takes over at MUN

Women’s Varsity Sea-Hawks enjoy a great week

By Tristan Woodworth-Lynas

What a weekend for the women of Memorial!

The female basketball team took both of their contests against UPEI, while the women’s volleyball team also won both of their matches against Acadia.

With these two wins, the basketball team has won six of their last seven games—a three straight to propel them up in the standings and into a three-way tie for second with UNB and St. FX.

While leading the entire game, the Sea-Hawks prevailed 85–71 on Saturday. Alexandria Forsey netted 20 points and seven rebounds, and Kim Devison also put back 20 points and five three-pointers for Memorial.

They continued their winning ways on Sunday with another win over UPEI, 88–67. This time, Grace Fishbein took control of the game and slammed back 36 points for Memorial, leaving the opposition in disarray and wondering what had just happened. Fishbein also collected six rebounds.

With these two big wins added onto the success over the past seven games, the Sea-Hawks are poised to not only make the playoffs, but to be a major contender for the Atlantic University Sport Championship.

The winning ways didn’t just end with the basketball team; the volleyball team also decided to keep pushing for a playoff birth and swept Acadia home cleanly in their two-game set.

Saturday’s game saw the Sea-Hawks take down Acadia three sets to one in a pretty convincing win. Leading the way was Sasha Wilkins with 16 kills and 13 defensive digs, Samantha March with 12 kills and 19 digs, and Chantel Jones with eight kills and a block.

The rematch took place Sunday morning where the Sea-Hawks continued to cruise, winning once again three sets to one. Wilkins continued to shine with 20 kills, March collected 12 kills, and veteran Nicole Jolliffe had 24 digs.

With these two wins, the Sea-Hawks have won four games in a row and five of their last six games. The girls are really making a push for the playoffs and are just on the cusp of breaking through.

MUN Seahawks, web site:  Women’s Basketball

The Sea~Hawks improved to 10-6 with a weekend sweep over the last place UPEI Panthers in AUS women’s basketball action in Charlottetown on the weekend.

 Saturday Memorial 85 UPEI 71

Kim Devison and Ally Forsey both had 20 points to lead Memorial to a 85-71 win over UPEI on Saturday night. 

Devison and Forsey did their damage in different ways. Devison, a third year guard from Waterloo, caught fire from outside, going a perfect five for five from three-point land on her way to her twenty points. Forsey, a third year from St. John’s, dominated in the paint, with her 20 points and 7 rebounds on 8-12 shooting. 

St. John’s native Amy Gough continued her effective play against her hometown Sea~Hawks with a team-high 13 points in the loss. 

Memorial coach Doug Partridge used Saturday night to get a chance to get the bench some good experience. Everyone who played scored for the Sea~Hawks.   

Sunday Memorial 88 UPEI 67

The Sea~Hawks cruised to an 88-67 victory over the Panthers on Sunday improviing Memorial to 10-6 on the season.  

Grace Fishbein was lethal for the Sea~Hawks on Sunday after struggling on Saturday night. The third year from Waterloo had a career-high 36 points on 11 of 14 shooting from the floor and 11 of 13 shooting from the free throw line. Brittany Dalton and Ally Forsey both added 13 points. Amy Gough continued her success against Memorial with one of her best games of the season with 23 points, 10 rebounds and 5 steals.

   

PEI, The Guardian February 7, 2011

It was another tough weekend for the women Panthers (0-16) as they look to get into the win column.  

Memorial  (10-6) began Sunday’s game hitting everything they threw up, bolting out to a 38-21 lead.  

They led by as much as 22 points, but the Panthers started to scratch their way back. 

They cut the lead down to nine points, but every time UPEI seemed to gain momentum, the SeaHawks came up with a score.  

Most of the Memorial offence came from third-year forward Grace Fishbein, who dropped 36 points, Fishbein was 11-for-14 from the floor and 11-for-13 from the free-throw line. Brittany Dalton and Alexandria Forsey each added 13. Amy Gough led the Panthers  with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Emily MacEachern added 10 points and Nakita Newman had eight.

The SeaHawks led 51-38 at the half.

Saturday, Forsey and Kim Devison each poured in 20 points for Memorial in its 85-71 win.  Gough and Carly LaFave both scored 13 points for UPEI. Danielle MacDonald had 12 points and Jenna Jones and MacEachern each netted nine.

Lady Hawks finish with Grace

Published on January 17th, 2011

Fishbein comes through in final seconds as MUN splits two games at ST.FX

Grace Fishbein hit two free throws with six seconds to play to break a tie as Memorial Sea-Hawks edged St Francis Xavier X-Women 68-66 in Atlantic University Sport (AUS) women's basketball Sunday in Antigonish, N.S., for a split of the two game series.
Memorial improved to 5-5 on the season, while St. Francis, which beat MUN 58-44 Saturday, fell to 6-3

Fishbien, who MUN coach Doug Partridge says has been the team’s best player “quite a few” times this season, then successfully defended the X-Women’s attempt to tie the game in the dying seconds to seal the victory.

Fishbein was the team’s top scorer with 20 points Sunday, while Ally Forsey chipped in with 13 and Kim Devison scored 12.

MUN led 45-29 at the half.

Partridge said Brittany Dalton played well during the weekend.

“She didn’t put up any great numbers, but her defence was a lot better,” said the MUN mentor.

Dalton plays with a knee brace and Partridge said “her movement was better” against St. Francis than it was last weekend against UNB Varsity Reds.

“Today (Sunday) when they really got up defectively on us, I thought when was able to break them a bit… get into the key and make some things happen. I thought she showed some real improvement this weekend,” Partridge said.

Fishbein netted 15 points Saturday, while Forsey scored five points with 16 rebounds. Devison scored 10.

Partridge said the Lady Hawks simply collapsed Saturday. The teams were tied 42-42 after the third quarter, but The X-Women oustscored MUN 16-2  in the fourth quarter to pick up the win.

Memorial turned the ball over 33 times and shot only 15 per cent from the floor in the second half.

“We had thee different 10-point leads on Saturday and blew them all because we just couldn’t take care of the ball,” said Partridge.

In AUS men’s play, also at Antigonish, host St. Francis swept a pair of games from the visiting Sea-Hawks.

St. Francis (7-2) defeated Memorial (2-8) 109-73 Sunday and topped MUN 113-61 Saturday.

Robbie Habib was the only Sea-Hawk in double digits Saturday with 15 points. Corner Brook native Chad Warren had 14 for the X-Men.

 The teams were tied 50-50 at the half Sunday, with St. Francis outscoring MUN 59-23 in the second half.

Habib was the Subway player of the game for Memorial.

Both Memorial teams play host to UPEI Panthers this weekend at the Field House.

Grace Fishbein of the Memorial University Sea-Hawks drives up the court in a game against the Cape Breton Capers.
Waterloo native leads Memorial University women’s basketball team {C}{C}{C}


ST. JOHN’S — Grace Fishbein has noticed she’s attracting more attention from the opposition these days, a sure sign the third-year member of the Memorial University Sea-Hawks’ women’s basketball team must be doing something right.

Being your team’s top scorer in three out of its first four Atlantic University Sport games will get you noticed and nobody is more aware of that than Fishbein.

It’s no big deal as far as the Waterloo native is concerned because she believes it works to Memorial’s advantage.

“If they are hard on me, I can get the ball to Brittany (Dalton) or Ally (Forsey) or Jen (Parsons) in the post,” said Fishbein, who plays the wing. “It’s all about the team effort. We all need to be aggressive and score the ball.”

The Lady Hawks are without Vicki Thistle, their top scorer last season, until after the Christmas break due to an injury. In the meantime, Fishbein has stepped up and become the type of team leader all successful teams possess. Her overall improvement is the product of experience.

“It just comes from playing,” said the Bluevale Collegiate graduate. “I don’t have that nervous, rookie feeling. After a couple of years, you know where you need to be and what you need to do.”

She said her success so far this season had a lot to do to the work she and her teammates did during the summer.

“We all stayed here (in St. John’s) and worked really hard and worked together as a team, and I think that helped improve our chemistry.”

Like all players, there are things she needs to work on. “I think my ball handling has improved, but it can still improve a lot more,” she said with a smile.

There’s lots more to do in all areas of the game.

“There’s a role to fill on the team in terms of leadership, bringing up the ball every now and then and being an all-around better player in terms of contributing points and making sure I’m still getting in there for rebounds and breaking the press … that sort of stuff,” she said.

Fishbein, who also leads Memorial in minutes played with a 33.50 average, worked on gaining confidence going into her second year and that’s carried over into this season.

She did have specific personal goals she wanted to meet, such as hitting the outside shot, something she did pretty well in the pre-season. “I need to get back in the gym and shoot some more now so that it will continue during the season,” she said.

Sea-Hawks coach Doug Partridge isn’t surprised Fishbein is beginning to blossom into an all-around effective player.

“For those who do the work and develop their game, this is about the time they begin to show their skills,” said Partridge. “They have enough reps and enough confidence to begin to demonstrate what they can do.”

He said Fishbein has “all the physical abilities to be a dominant defender. She is working on her focus and attention to detail and rotations.”

Fishbein’s start has been impressive and the home crowd noticed.

When she’s wasn’t scrambling on the floor for a loose ball, she was using her quickness for a couple of steals in each in the season opening games against Cape Breton Capers.

Her hustle was perhaps most obvious late in the second quarter of the second game against the Capers when she missed a three-pointer, but raced untouched to the basket to grab her own rebound and put it in.

He contributions weren’t limited to simple aggressiveness. She scored 22 points with eight rebounds in the first game against Cape Breton and followed that up with a careerhigh 26 points and eight rebounds in the second game of the season.

Heading into last weekend’s bye week, Fishbein was tied for fourth place in conference scoring with a 21 points per-game average. She was leading the conference in three pointers with nine in four games and she was eighth in rebounding with seven per game.

It’s early, but what Fishbein has shown in the first four games is that she is not only getting points and making plays, she’s doing those things at key points in the game.

She’s become an impact player, striding up and down the court with purpose — a player who makes plays that changes momentum in a game or scores when the outcome is still on the line.
