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.

Tyler Sullivan, the fan, cheers on his old team on Saturday.

Former Liverpool guard Tyler Sullivan was in the stands to cheer on his former team at the Peppino’s Tournament last night. Liverpool was thumped by Ludden in front of a packed crowd.

Today, however, Sullivan came to ball. The Onondaga Community College freshman played a solid floor game and stuffed the stat sheet with a 19 point performance in 29 minutes of action. He shot 56 percent from the field, including 2 of 4 from three, and 78 percent from the line. He also added five assists and five steals. Quantae Elijah poured in 20 points as well.

The OCC Men defeated Clinton Community College 90-56, which put a cap on a great weekend of sports action in Syracuse, but the bigger story may have occured earlier in the day when the Lady Lazers shut down Clinton 104-30.
