PASADENA, Texas – Kabir Mohammed, Lamar Hamrick and Jethro Tshisumpa have been named by the league’s coaches to the all-Region XIV team.

Mohammed, a 6-5 guard from Lagos, Nigeria (National Christian Academy), was named to the all-Region XIV first team. He was the team’s leading scorer and rebounder at 13.5 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this season. In Region XIV play, Mohammed averaged 9.0 rebounds per game, good for fifth in the league, while his 171 total rebounds in conference play was fourth overall.  Mohammed played in 31 games, starting 29.

“Kabir was one of our most consistent players the last two seasons,” said Head Coach Scott Gernander. “His strength and versatility allowed us to utilize him in many roles and helped us in keeping opposing defenses guessing. He’s really got a knack for rebounding the ball outside of his area which will make him valuable player for any team. I’m proud of his accomplishment on the floor but even more proud of what he’s done in the classroom.”

Mohammed was also a first-team National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) All-Academic selection last season.

Hamrick was a second-team all-Region XIV selection this year. The 6-3 guard from New Castle, Delaware (St. Georges Technical HS), was second on the team in scoring at 11.4 points per game. He also had 31 total steals in Region XIV play, which ranked him fifth in the league.

Tshisumpa was an honorable mention all-Region XIV selection after averaging 8.4 points and 6.5 rebounds per game this season. He also posted 3.7 blocks per game and ranks third in the nation in total blocks with 116. In conference play Tshisumpa posted 75 total blocks which was second in the conference. He shot 53.5 percent from the field against region opponents, ranking him ninth in the league.

In the final season for the San Jacinto College men’s basketball program, San Jac posted a 19-13 overall record, 10-9 in conference play, advancing to the Region XIV semifinals. For more information about San Jacinto College athletics visit sanjacsports.com.
