2005 Cabrillo Classic Tournament

 

Seahawks Start Season Ranked #10

Cabrillo will begin the 2005-2006 season ranked right where they left off last season.  In the first coach's poll of the season, the Seahawks are ranked #10 in the NorCal region and #20 in the state.  The Seahawks are looking forward to another great season in 2005-2006.   They are hoping to continue to build upon the program's recent successes.

Cabrillo's 17 victories last season were the team's most wins in Head Coach Tony Marcopulos' 5 seasons at the helm.  Cabrillo's winning percentage has improved in each of those 5 seasons.  92 California community colleges fielded a men's basketball team last season and Cabrillo was among the final 16 of those teams that were still alive in the playoffs.  For the 2nd time in 3 years the Cabrillo College Seahawks played in NorCal Regional finals.  Cabrillo won 4 of their last 5 games including victories over 2 higher-ranked opponents.

Fishbeyn Makes It Official

Following up on a previous report, sophomore center Igor Fishbeyn has made it official that he will attend The University of the Pacific in starting next fall.  Fishbeyn , a 6'-9 265 lbs. center from San Francisco, signed a National Letter of Intent last Wednesday, November 9th.  The Pacific Tigers , who compete in the Big West Conference (D-1), are coming off a 27-4 campaign that included their second straight trip to the NCAA tournament. 

Coach Marcopulos, who was an assistant coach at Pacific for 11 years (1988-1999), had this to say: "We are all very excited for Igor.  He is what Pacific is looking for at this time and Pacific is what he needs at this time as well.  Given my experience with Coach Thomason and my time spent at the University of the Pacific I have a better than average feel for how Igor will be able to fit into the University academically and into Coach Thomason's system. Igor has made a very wise decision."
