Jessica Coscia: Assisting to Lead the Way

Updated on May 27, 2015

The ideal point guard in basketball is similar to a quarterback in football. It is one who leads the team, runs the offense and tempo, gets everyone involved, and is completely unselfish. Jessica Coscia is one who can be considered the quarterback of the Cougars. She is one who knows how to run an offense, puts her teammates in great position to score, and is a complete team player. A player of her caliber is one every coach would love to have on their team. “She is very smart, her basketball IQ is through the roof, she knows the game well, she knows how to execute plays, quick with the ball, always finds open teammates, and has great leadership skills. She is everything you want in a point guard,” said coach Danella.

Most people think that it’s all about scoring to make themselves feel good about their play but Jessica Coscia isn’t one of them. “Some players get excited when they score but I feel great when I give my teammates the ball in great position to score,” said Coscia. It’s her attitude that makes Jessica seem like one of the most unselfish players one can ever meet. “I’m a pass first point guard, very unselfish, and like to make my teammates better,” stated Jessica. “I like to push the ball in transition and I work better in the open floor with my decision making.” It is clear that her decision making has led to plenty of assists as she has led the CACC in assists in three out of her four seasons at Caldwell.

On January 31st Jessica recorded her 500th career assist in a loss against Philadelphia University. Days after that when Caldwell defeated Felician, Jessica had 507 career assists, which was the NCAA-era school record. It was a personal goal as well for Coscia. “It was an individual goal of mine especially being a point guard. Although my goal is to win every game, it felt great accomplishing that goal,” stated Coscia. It is difficult to find a player with the passing ability of Coscia.

Prior to Caldwell, Coscia was named to the All-Staten Island second team by the New York Post during her senior year at Moore Catholic High School. Served as team captain during her final two years and helped Moore Catholic win three CHSAA Archdiocesan championships.

The next step for Jessica Coscia is attending Grad School for student counseling. She also had a minor in Communications. But playing her last season at Caldwell probably won't be the last time we see Jessica on the court as she hopes to return someday as a coach in the near future.
