Foothill Conference honors handed out in basketball

All Foothill-Conference honors have been handed out in men’s and women’s basketball. The biggest awards went to the most deserving. Some conferences and leagues water down the honors by naming a first and a second team as well as honorable mention. Some even name a third team.

But this conference does it right, just a first team, although the women have honorable mention. It’s a tough, deep conference so being named is truly an honor.

Local player at Biola honored for academics, athletics

Redlands native Jessilyn Conicelli of Biola University has been named a 2010-11 Second-Team Capital One Women’s Basketball Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) on Thursday.

Conicelli, a senior forward with a 3.96 grade-point average, has been honored for both her work in the classroom and on the court. She is one of 15 student-athletes chosen in the College Division which represents schools in the NCAA Division II, Division III and NAIA schools.

She is averaging 17.8 points and 12.3 rebounds per game and has recorded 13 straight double-doubles to give her 23 on the season. Conicelli ranks in the top five in the NAIA in five different categories including ranking second in total rebounds (358), third in rebounds per game (12.3) and 10th in total scoring (516).

In her Biola career, Concicelli has scored 1,532 points and added 1,093 rebounds, becoming one of just three players in the program’s history to reach 1,000 in both categories. She is currently fifth on the all-time scoring list at Biola and third on the rebounding list.

Pairings set for CCAA basketball tournament

The CCAA basketball tournament gets underway on Tuesday with the highest seeded teams hosting quarterfinal games.

Cal State San Bernardino was the lone school to get home games in both the men’s and women’s events so they will be hosting a doubleheader with the women seeded fourth and taking on fifth-seeded Humboldt State at 5:30 p.m. and the third-seeded men following against No. 6 Cal State Los Angeles.
The Coyotes swept the Humboldt women this season while the men split with Cal State Los Angeles, each team winning at home.
The Cal Poly Pomona women are a No. 2 seed and will host No. 7 Stanislaus at 7 p.m. The Broncos split with the Warriors but lost the most recent game just a week ago in Turlock.
The defending national champion men are the No. 6 seed and will play at San Francisco State.  The Broncos lost to the Gators twice by a total of six points so maybe the third time is the charm.
While both local women’s team look to be set for a regional bid both men’s team’s likely need to win the tournament. The Cal State men might get in the next poll after three wins last week but they have to win out to stay there.
The CCAA semifinals and finals will be hosted by Cal State East Bay. It seems like an odd choice since that school does not have a team in the field so there will likely be no local draw,
It’s better than Humboldt State which is hard to get to, not to mention expensive on a few days notice.
