ELAC Men’s Basketball #1 in CCCMBCA Preseason Rankings
MONTEREY PARK, CA – The California Community Colleges Men's Basketball Coaches' Association (CCCMBCA) ranked East Los Angeles College (ELAC) Men’s Basketball team as the best team in Southern California.
The Husky Men kick off their season on November 5, 2021, as they take on Santa Rosa College in the San Francisco City Tip-Off Classic Tournament. These two teams were slated to face each other in the 2019-2020 California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Quarterfinals before the COVID-19 pandemic hit California and canceled the season.
After an academic year of little to no competition the ELAC Huskies are ready to get back onto the court.
“We are excited about this new group. We are expecting for it to be a bumpy ride during the first few months. We are a talented but young team with not much experience as we start with arguably the toughest schedule in my tenure at ELAC. I'm sure expectations are high, but Husky fans will need to be patient as these young Huskies mature throughout the season,” said head basketball coach John Mosley.
Coach Mosley finished his 8th season in 2019-20 leading the men’s basketball team and has a 189-50 career record. The Huskies have made the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) state playoffs in each of those 8 seasons and appeared in ELAC’s only championship game in the 2014-2015 season. He won the South Coast-North Men’s Coach of the year for the 5th time in 2020.
"Coach Mosley and his coaching staff have done an amazing job preparing our young men to be amazing leaders. The dedication he and his staff give to every player on his team is appreciated and has a profound impact on their educational experience. I am excited to see what this season unfolds," said ELAC President Alberto J. Roman.
