  1. 1. Many athletes have tremendous God-given gifts, but they don’t focus on the development of those gifts. Who are these individuals? You’ve never heard of them — and you never will. It’s true in sports and it’s true everywhere in life. Hard work is the difference. Very hard work.  John Wooden
  2. 2. Warrior Core Values Team First Attitude / Family Atmosphere / Selfless Service Championship Spirit - Championship Effort Energy, Enthusiasm and Competitive Toughness Strong Desire to Improve / Coachable Academic Excellence & Progress Success at the Next Level
  3. 3. Basic Philosophy The philosophy of basketball at El Camino College is based on the assumption that ALL players are dedicated to the contribution they can make to the TEAM. If we are to be successful, we must excel in the TEAM aspects of the game. We must be more dedicated than our opponents. We must be in better condition. We must play with greater intensity. We must be willing to sacrifice personal glory for the good of the team. And, most importantly, we must be a tougher team, mentally, physically and defensively than our opponent. We must also possess self-discipline and team-discipline based on mutual respect for one another that will enable us to achieve our maximum team performance at all times. Remember, we must discipline ourselves and sacrifice things “we” may want. We must believe that everything we do will make us a better team and will be worth the effort. Good things happen to those who work the hardest. We work hard to reach our potential. PLAY HARD, PLAY SMART & PLAY TOGETHER!!!

  9. 9. N E W S El Camino College | Public Relations & Marketing Department 16007 Crenshaw Blvd., Torrance, CA 90506 Contact: Rafael Guerrero, Sports Information Associate Telephone: (310) 660-3593 ext. 7075 | Email: November 9, 2012 Men’s Basketball Upsets No. 1 Citrus TORRANCE, Calif. – The Warriors opened the 2012-13 season with a bang, pulling out an 87-85 victory over Citrus at the El Camino College North Gym. The Fighting Owls entered the game ranked No. 1 in Southern California and No. 2 in the state. Three Warriors (1-0) scored in double figures, led by sophomore point guard Joshua Wilson with 21 points, eight rebounds and six assists. Freshman Joshua Boyer scored 12 points and grabbed eight boards off the bench and Oyintonye Akamande chipped in with 11 points and three boards. The game was tightly contested throughout as the teams exchanged the lead seven times and were tied on 10 occasions. Freshman Brandon Boyd was responsible for the final lead change as he drove the lane and hit an incredible fall-away that rolled in to give the Warriors a 78-76 lead with 2:46 remaining in the game. Boyd finished with eight points in 14 minutes off the bench. The reserves as a whole were a strength for the home team as they outscored the Fighting Owls (0-1) bench 52-27. The Warriors also won the battle on the glass, outrebounding the top-ranked Fighting Owls 52-44. After Boyd’s layup, the visitors had a chance to tie the game but freshman Darius Middleton missed one of his two free throws and Boyd scored on a layup on the ensuing possession to put the Warriors up three. Then, after the Steven Thornton Jr. hit two free throws on the other end, Wilson drained a dagger 3-pointer off a Joshua Boyer pass on a broken play with less than a minute to play. The Fighting Owls were able to trim the deficit back down to two, but they would get no closer. Sophomore guard Kerry Carter led the Fighting Owls with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Thornton finished with 18, Jevion Roland added 14 and Terrell Todd scored 13 in the loss.
  10. 10. Wilson Signs With College of Idaho After two successful seasons running the offense for the Warriors, sophomore point guard Joshua Wilson has signed his letter of intent to continue his basketball career at the College of Idaho of the Cascade Collegiate Conference in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Wilson had a stellar season for the Warriors, earning an All-South Coast Conference South Division First Team selection after averaging 18.7 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. It was the second straight season Wilson was named to the All-SCC team after earning a second team selection during his freshman season. Wilson improved nearly every facet of his game in his final year with the Warriors. He improved his scoring by more than half a dozen points after averaging 12.4 points a contest in his first season. His field goal percentage went from 35.8% last year to 41% this past season while attempting 53 more field goals. The 6-foot-3 guard nearly doubled his attempts from the 3-point line, going 40-for-121 (33.1%) from distance after going just 16for-57 (28.1%) on 3-pointers last year. He also recorded eight 20point games this season and scored a career-high 38 points against Allan Hancock on Jan. 5. Wilson started every game for the Warriors during his freshman year, helping to lead the team to the postseason and secure their first playoff victory in two decades. They followed that with a shocking upset of No. 2 seed Mount San Antonio on the road and were two wins away from making it to the State Final Four but fell 67-64 at Antelope Valley. Wilson now heads to a Coyotes squad led by rookie head coach Scott Garson, who was named as coach in April 2013 and spent the last eight seasons as an assistant for former UCLA men’s basketball coach Ben Howland. In his time at UCLA, Garson helped develop current NBA stars Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Coyotes are also coming off a season in which they finished fourth in the Cascade Collegiate Conference and were eliminated in the first round of the NAIA playoffs. They have four returning starters from last season’s squad and will open the season in late October at Montana Western.

  15. 15. HONORS TRANSFER PROGRAM The Honors Transfer Program (HTP) at El Camino College is designed to better prepare the highly motivated student to transfer successfully to a university and complete a bachelor's degree. The HTP provides a unique learning environment which stresses scholastic excellence and develops the academic awareness necessary to achieve this goal. The major objective of the program is to prepare students for transfer by focusing on enhanced reading, writing, and study skills. Honors courses are chosen to fulfill the requirements of the associate degree as well as to transfer to the University of California, California State University, and most other universities. Generally, students in the HTP complete the same number of courses as other students planning to transfer. Honors courses are academically enriched to intellectually stimulate students, encourage independent critical thinking, and promote close interaction between students and faculty.
