After leading the Allan Hancock College men's basketball team to its deepest postseason run in 44 years, sophomore guard Shane Carney earned a spot on the California Community College Men's Basketball Coaches Association's (CCCMBCA) 2017-18 All-State Team. Carney was one of 27 players honored by the coaches' association with all-state honors this season. He is the first Bulldog to earn the all-state distinction since Ali Langford during the 2010-11 season.
Carney, an all-conference first team pick, led the Bulldogs in scoring at 17.5 points per game and with 5.2 assists per game. He set program records this season for most 3-pointers made in a single-season with 102 and most career 3-pointers made with 160. He scored a career-high 32 points during the Bulldogs' double-overtime win at San Bernardino last week in the regional finals. He scored at least 10 points in 29 of the Bulldogs' 33 games this season and 20 or more points in 12 games.
The Bulldogs finished the season 23-10 overall and racked up some impressive accomplishments along the way: most wins in a single-season since 2001; first playoff win since 2001; first regional finals appearance since 1990; and first state tournament game since 1974.
Carney finished his Hancock career with 1,045 points in 71 games, averaging 14.7 points per game.
