Mott’s sophomore big man Fred Mattison earned all-tournament team honors at the NJCAA National Tournament in Danville, Illinois on Saturday. Mattison was Mott’s most consistent performer in the tournament, scoring 13 points and pulling down seven rebounds per game.

Mott went 2-2 in the tournament, losing to Louisburg College in the consolation bracket on Saturday to finish in 8th place. It was Mott’s worst finish at the national tournament during Steve Schmidt’s 22-year tenure as coach.

The MCCAA’s other representative, the champions of the Western Conference from Grand Rapids, fared even worse — an 0-2 finish and early exit on Thursday.

Mott will regroup, as the bulk of the firepower from this season’s team will return for next season. Mott will look to return to Danville next season for the fourth consecutive time.

    Any news on an All Star game by the NJCAA’s Basketball Coaches Association? I checked the Web-site and they announce a women’s……but have yet to announce a men’s game. It would be nice if it were held in one of those “Fly direct from Bishop Airport” locations.
