Two Kellogg Community College women’s basketball players and one men’s basketball player have been honored with postseason athletic awards from the Michigan Community College Athletic Association.

The MCCAA’s 2019 Western Conference Basketball Post-Season Honors were announced this morning. KCC award winners, all sophomores, include:

  • Tishaun Cooper (Kalamazoo/Loy Norrix High School), Third Team All-Conference. Cooper led the men’s basketball team in points and rebounds per game, averaging 19.1 points and 6.7 rebounds per game over 27 games played for the Bruins this season.
  • Destiny Kincaide (Chicago/Hyde Park Academy High School), Second Team All-Conference. Kincaide was the women’s basketball team’s top scorer this season, averaging 17.1 points per game per game over 28 games played.
  • DeeDee Post (Westerville, Ohio/Westerville North High School), Honorable Mention All-Conference. Post led the women’s basketball team on several statistics over 24 games played, averaging 7.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.7 steals per game, also adding 11 points per game.

“Destiny did a great job for us this season with her scoring and defense,” Dic Doumanian, KCC’s head women’s basketball coach, said. “This honor is very well deserved. DK has been our leader for two years and we are going to miss all her contributions both on and off the court. DeeDee ran the show for us this season and did a terrific job. Her complete game is evident by her statistics. She is definitely one of the top players in the conference and deserving of this award.”

KCC’s basketball teams finished their seasons late last month. For more information about men’s and women’s basketball at KCC, visit www.kellogg.edu/athletics.
