Menlo College women add two basketball prospects

 

The Menlo College women's basketball team has added two new players for the 2015-16 season, junior transfer Madison Michelis from De Anza College and Emma Pastorino from Notre Dame-Belmont.

Michelis, a Woodside resident, posted a pair of successful seasons at De Anza College and was a two-time first-team all-conference honoree while helping the Dons to a conference title as a freshman.

In her inaugural season at De Anza, she averaged 10 points and seven rebounds per game off the bench, earning her a starting spot as a sophomore. She took advantage of that role, averaging 22 points and 12 rebounds per game -- good for fifth in scoring and sixth in rebounding in the state.

Michelis posted a career-best effort against 2014-15 state champion Chabot -- scoring 38 points with 17 rebounds. She also put up 40 points and a career-high 25 rebounds in games to help the Dons to a runner-up conference finish.

"Maddy is going to be a great addition to our program," said Menlo coach Shannon Osborne. "She can score in multiple ways and is a terrific rebounder."

Michelis played her prep ball at Woodside High, where she was a three-time team MVP and all-league selection. She helped her team to its first-ever CCS championship berth as a senior while averaging 18 points and 17 rebounds per game. Woodside (24-5) lost to Presentation in the 2013 Division II finals.

Pastorino, a Half Moon Bay resident, helped Notre Dame-Belmont to the CCS Division IV finals and NorCal quarterfinals as a senior. She was twice named to the All-West Catholic Athletic League team.

As a senior, Pastorino appeared in 24 games and averaged 10.8 points, 2.1 assists and 2.5 rebounds. In addition to her offensive prowess, she also proved stellar defensively, averaging 3.5 steals per contest.
