Trio earns All-SCIAC honors

Senior guards Colin Zavrsnick and Taylor Hamasaki each earned All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) honors for the second year in a row. Senior guard Garrett James was awarded the Ted Ducey award as a co-recipient with Caltech’s Bryan Joel.

Zavrsnick was named to the first-team for the second time after leading Chapman with 18.6 points-per-game, which was good enough for third in the conference. Hamasaki joined Zavrsnick on the first team after being a second team selection last season. Hamasaki scored 16.6 points-per-game.

The Ted Ducey award is given to seniors that best exemplify the former Claremont basketball coach’s qualities, including athletic ability, leadership, self-discipline, determination, sportsmanship and sincerity in academic pursuit.

James, who led the conference with 5.5 assists-per-game and was third in the nation in assists-to-turnover ratio (3.5), was selected because of his ability to “connect with and inspire both the seniors and the underclassmen,” as well as his passing skills, according to the conference’s website.
