Granite Bay grads named to All-CalPac second team
William Jessup University basketball players Anthony Anderson and Preston Bramow, graduates of Granite Bay High School, were selected to the All-California Pacific Conference second team.
Anderson averaged 10.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. He shot 45 percent from three-point range, which ranked 15th in NAIA Division II. Anderson made a school-record eight three-pointers and scored 25 points against Bethany.
“Anthony had a great year shooting the basketball,” Jessup coach Aaron Muhic said. “He worked hard to earn himself a starting position.”
Bramow averaged 11.5 points and 5.1 rebounds and shot 58 percent from the field. His season high was 20 points against Pacific Union.
“Preston is a great all-around athlete that came on strong for us in conference play,” Muhic said. “It seemed like every game he would get a little more comfortable, and he did a lot of the little things for us. He was tremendous on the boards and played tough defense against some of the top players in the league.”
Jessup seniors Kadeem Kirsten and Damal Neil were named to the All-CalPac first team. Jessup was 12-17 overall and finished third in the CalPac at 8-4.
