ORANGE CRUSHING THE TOP OEC HONORS

ORANGE CRUSHING THE TOP OEC HONORS

The Orange Coast College Pirates (11-1) swept through the competition this season winning the Orange Empire Conference for the first time. The last time OCC won a conference title was back in 1979. With the championship trophy now in hand, the Pirates now lay claim to the top honors in the All-OEC selection.

Two Pirates were selected the Most Valuable Players in Kupaa Harrison (6-5/sophomore/forward) and Joshua Davis (6-6/freshman/center). Harrison was 7th in the OEC in total points with 417 (15.3 ppg.), while Davis was 4th in conference scoring with 478 points (17.7 ppg.). They were both stellar under the basket bringing down a combined 450 rebounds (Davis – 244 and Harrison 206). Harrison also led the conference in steals with 50.

 In his 17th season, OCC head coach Steve Spencer earned the well-deserved honor of Coach of the Year.

Santiago Canyon College's Rodney "Rocket" Henderson was named Offensive MVP leading the conference in scoring 744 total points (26.6 ppg.).

Orange Coast's Jumoke Walker was tagged as the Defensive MVP with 39 steals on the season.
