SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – Senior transfer Victor Nwaba (Los Angeles, Calif.) was recently named to the All-Tournament Team for the Mission Inn Tip-Off Classic announced by the Santa Cruz Athletic Department.

Despite the Whittier College Men's Basketball team going 0-2 over the two days with losses to Linfield (76-75) and UC Santa Cruz (111-110 OT) Nwaba stood out as one of the premier players during the Classic.

Against Linfield he poured in a game high 27 points on 11-19 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and two steals.  He then followed that up with another big-time performance against the host UCSC as he added another 27 point performance this time going 9-13 from the field, 5-6 from three-point territory with four boards, three assists, and a steal.

Currently, Nwaba leads the Purple & Gold averaging 20.8 points per game, shooting 56% from the field and 46% from behind the arc.  He is also averaging 4.5 rebounds per game and 3.0 assists per game as well.
