After winning the program's first Western State Conference title since 1999, the West Los Angeles College Women's Basketball team kept winning on Sunday afternoon, when first-year Head Coach Twan Herron was named the WSC South Coach of the Year and freshman guard Ijeoma "Brianna" Anugwom was named the WSC South Player of the Year
Herron guided the Wildcats to just the second title in program history in his first year at the helm of the program. An assistant with West LA last season, Herron stepped into the leading role this off-season after the retirement of long-time Head Coach Colleen Matsuhara. Herron did so admirably as West LA went 22-5 overall and 7-1 in WSC South play. Herron is just the third coach in West LA history to earn Coach of the Year honors.
Much like, Herron, Anugwom joined rarified air in West LA lore this year by being named the Player of the Year, just the third Wildcat in history to do so. Anugowm more than deserved the honor after finishing second in the WSC in scoring at 20.3 points per game. Anugwon did so on 47.4% shooting from the field and 33.3% shooting from beyond the 3-point arc. Anugwon also averaged 9.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 2.1 steals per game this past season.
