The season is over, but not the accolades. Coach Erik Saroney (above) led SUNY OCC to a 28-5 record and was named NJCAA Region III Coach of the Year.

Tyler Sullivan and his backcourt mate Quantae Elijah (both freshmen) also received post-season awards. Sullivan was injured in Saturday’s victory over Corning Community College, but unable to play in Sunday’s loss to Herkimer Community College.

Who knew Henninger and Liverpool could blend so well.

It has been fun to watch the progressive chemistry between the SUNY OCC duo of Quantae Elijah (Henninger) and Tyler Sullivan (Liverpool). These days they go together like beans and cornbread.

The game narrative goes something like this: Sullivan swishes from deep (as well as getting to the line often) while Elijah plays ball hawk on the opposing point guard and keeps pressure on the defense by constantly driving to the bucket.

Last night, the freshman guards combined for 43 points in the teams 97-95 victory over Hudson Valley Community College. Four other players also finished in double figures.

The OCC backcourt logged a lot of minutes for coach Erik Saroney (40 minutes for Sullivan and 34 for Elijah), but the victory and rest will be short-lived; their next game will be a NJCAA regional game on Saturday.
