NORFOLK – Several members of the Northeast Community College’s men’s and women’s basketball teams have earned post season honors.

Jalen Bradley, of Norfolk, was named to the Iowa Community College Athletic Association’s (ICCAC’s) Division I First Team. The 6’ 1” sophomore guard started in every game for the Hawks this season and was second in total scoring in the ICCAC. Bradley also led the conference in total steals.

Northeast also had two players named to the ICCAC Division I Second Team – Chima Moneke, a 6’ 7” sophomore forward from Canberra, Australia, and Buay Tuach, a 6’ 6” guard from Omaha.

“We had a nice season and that is because of these three men,” said Dan Anderson, Northeast coach. “They always played and practiced at a high level and this added to the success of the team. They will be missed. In our recruiting talks, we will always say we have to get another Buay, Chima and Jalen. They have brought a lot of excitement to campus. They will be successful at their next stop because of their work ethic.”

The Hawks lost to Indian Hills Community College in the National Junior College Athletic Association’s (NJCAA’s) Region XI Championship game, 107-91 and finished the season 25-7. The Hawks appeared in the NJCAA’s Top 25 Division I poll reaching #23.

Northeast also had two members earn honorable mention selections – Brooke Bauer, a 5’ 9” freshman guard/forward, from O’Neill, and Ena Viso, a 5’ 10” sophomore guard, from Copenhagen, Denmark.
