Baines, NABC All-West Region

LOS ANGELESZach Baines was named Second Team All-West Region and NABC Second Team All-District last week after an outstanding senior season with the Tigers.

The 6-foot-5 wing from Stamford, Conn. surpassed 1,000 career points, led the Tigers in scoring with 20.4 points per game, set Oxy's single game scoring record with 50 points against Pacific (Ore.) and was named First Team All-SCIAC for the second year in a row.

In SCIAC games, he was third in scoring at 19.1 points per game, ninth in field goal percentage at 49.2 percent, sixth in rebounds at 6.4 per game and second in blocks at 1.6 per game. He scored more than 20 points seven times in SCIAC play, including 34 at Redlands, 29 at Cal Lutheran and 24 at Whittier.

The Tigers had a good season, going 22-5 overall and advancing to the SCIAC Tournament Championship game before falling to Pomona-Pitzer.

It is the second year in a row that Oxy's had a player recognized on the All-West Region Team. Austin DeWitz was a Third Team Selection last year.

Daniel Rosenbaum of Pomona-Pitzer was the only other SCIAC player to make either the list, earning First Team honors on both.
