The men’s basketball head coach at Cerritos College, Russ May, was named the South Coast Conference South Division coach of the year.

“Honestly, I think if you are coach of the year you need to have players of the year, and I was fortunate to have some really good kids that really competed for me.” May said.

May led the Falcons to an 18-11 record this year and to a No. 12 seed in the playoffs. They faced Mt. San Antonio College Feb. 26 in the second round and were bumped out of the post-season.
