Congratulations to the Men’s Wildcats Basketball program who captured the 2021-2022 Western State Conference-South Championship by defeating cross-town rival Santa Monica College 100 – 77 last Friday, February 18. The team went 14-0 undefeated in conference which has not happened for 20 years! They are now ranked #2 in California with a record of 23-3 overall.
This victory follows the 100th win for Head Coach Anthony Jones while at West. He remarked “”Everything is a process! I am a firm believer that we are what we repeatedly do. It is an honor and my life’s work to watch my students walk through the door as boys and leave as young men. It has never been about getting wins it’s about my student-athletes becoming successful.” Under Coach Jones, the team GPA has steadily increased from 2.51 in 2015 to 3.6 in Fall 2021. In the same time period, 100 percent of sophomores graduated and transferred to four-year universities including several who went on to play ball at the university level.
