Led by the hot scoring of Dominique Williams, the TCC Titans claimed the NWAACC men's basketball title defeating the Chemeketa Storm, 110 to 98.

Williams led the Titans with 36 points and was named as the tournament's MVP. He was on fire the first half, scoring 23 points including 15 with precise accuracy from 3-point range. The Titan's regular season lead scorer, Mark McLaughlin, contributed 24 points and was dominant on the boards and at the free throw line. Nate Walker, Josh Lord and many others contributed to the win.

The Titans, coached by Carl Howell played a masterful series of games all weekend, holding several teams that had earlier scored 100 points to about half that. The Titans held a 16 point at the half way mark of tonight's game, and early in the second half extended the lead to 20 points - a margin they held for most of the second period.

The iFiberOneSports announcer commented more than once that the Titans were "conducting a basketball clinic." Team defense was fierce against all opponents - often providing few scoring opportunities to fast break high scoring teams. The game featured numerous blocked shots, steals, and few missed free throws by TCC.

Down the stretch, Chemeketa chipped away at the TCC lead and got it down at one point to 12. In the last 7 minutes, Chemeketa repeatedly fouled TCC's most deadly free throw shooters, Dominique Williams and Mark McLaughlin.

All team members put in outstanding performances to make everyone at TCC proud. What a great accomplishment for our men's team.

After receiving the trophy and taking turns cutting off the ceremonial net from the rim, Nate Walker was named to the Second All Tournament Team and Mark McLaughlin named to the first team.

Congratulations Coach Howell and assistants R-Jay Barsh & Jesse Brown. Throughout the tournament games, the players were masterfully coached with precise game plans.
