Matsumoto, Anderson Win SCIAC Awards

LOS ANGELES — Two Occidental women's basketball players earned awards at the end-of-the-year SCIAC Coaches meeting on Tuesday.

Triana Anderson was named Second Team All-SCIAC and Erin Matsumoto took home the Ed Baldwin Character Award.

Anderson, a junior from San Francisco, finished eighth in the SCIAC in scoring at 14.1 ppg and shot 47 percent from the field. She scored in double figures in 13 of Oxy's 16 SCIAC games.

Matsumoto, a senior captain from Oak Park, was recognized for outstanding achievement on the court, off the court and in the classroom. She is a three-year started who scored 691 points and hit 78 three-pointers in her career before suffering a season-ending injury against Cal Lu on Feb. 8.

In the classroom, Matsumoto was an excellent student, earning SCIAC All-Academic honors in every season that she was eligible. 

The Tigers finished fifth in the SCIAC at 9-7 and posted a 13-12 overall record.

Oxy returns its entire roster besides Matsumoto, including three first years who were starters and made major contributions. First years Tala Ismail, Shariah Green and Emily Leonard combined for 26.6 ppg and 16.4 rpg.
