Warren, Torres, an Lam Named to All-Conference Team
San Diego City College women's basketball players Alex Warren, Mia Torres, and Nyadoup Lam were named to the all-Pacific Coast Athletic Conference team, the league announced. Warren was chosen for the first team, while Torres and Lam were awarded honorable mention.
In 14 PCAC games, Warren led the conference in rebounds (14.1) and blocks (2.9), was third in the league in points (14.3), and was seventh in field goal percentage (44.3). Overall, Warren finished second in the state in blocks (3.6) and fourth in the state in rebounds (13.5). She had 18 double-doubles in 26 games this season.
"For only playing basketball for 5 years, Alex has come leaps and bounds over where she started from," said 2nd-year Head Coach Andrea Aguilar. "She has received a scholarship to Point Loma Nazarene for basketball and music and we will be happy to go and support her in her next chapter of play next season. She earned all-PCAC first team and it was well-deserved by earning a double-double almost every game of the season. She is a hard worker on and off the court and I couldn’t be more proud of her accomplishments."
In her second season with the Knights, Torres finished the PCAC season ranked fifth in total rebounds (9.1), offensive rebounds (4.4), and in field goal percentage (47.9). She was 15th in points (10.9) and had five double-doubles in 14 PCAC games.
"Torres has grown over the past two seasons playing ball for me at City," said Aguilar. "She works hard for her teammates and coaches and became a great force underneath the basket and around the perimeter. She was hard to stop and was one of our best defenders, which earned her PCAC honorable mention for all-conference."
Lam was fifth in the PCAC in total rebounds (9.1), defensive rebounds (5.8), and in free throw percentage (76.4). She was fourth in the league in blocks (1.4) and 19th in points (10.2). Lam reached double-double figures in six games this season.
"Lam is just skimming the surface of her abilities on the court," said Aguilar. "She is a strong competitor and smart offensively, nearly averaging double-doubles and is a defensive threat. Her potential is leaps and bounds ahead of where she has hit this season. I know that she will be one to look out for next season, more than she was this year. She was a threat to other teams and an anchor for ours, which is how she was easily honored for all-conference honorable mention.
