The Seahawks finished the season 19-9 overall and 9-3 in conference play. Cabrillo was seeded #12 and played at the #5 seed West Hills College (Coalinga, from the Central Valley Conference) and lost 67-65 in the first round of the NorCal  State playoffs. Aaron Patterson (19.9 pts./gm) was selected MVP of the conference and was a 1st team All-State selection. Chris Sharp was selected to the 2nd team All-Conference and Dom Dunham and Aaron Pearson were Honorable mention. In addition to the championship milestone, it was the first time in the history of the school that any player was both MVP of the conference and selected to the All-State team in the same year. It was the first in recorded history that Cabrillo had swept both perennial powers West Vally College and San Jose City College in the same year. For the first time in any recent history the Men's Basketball team has finished four consecutive seasons with a .500 or better record.

With an overall record of 14-14, Cabrillo finished the season with a record of .500 or better for the third-straight year.  Despite late season injuries, the Seahawks finished the season strong, winning 9 of their last 14 games.  With a record of 7-5 in the very competitive Coast Conference South, Cabrillo earned a 3rd-place finish behind only top-ranked West Valley College and #7 San Jose City College.  A season-ending ankle injury to point guard Jeff Scott was a critical blow in the middle of conference play. The Seahawks, who were tied for first place at the time of his injury, were not able to maintain that same high level of play. Mike Scott, Jon Fontenberry, and Aaron Patterson each earned All-Conference recognition.  Once again the Seahawks were one of the best defensive teams in the state, ranking 7th out of over 90 teams by allowing only 64.1 ppg.

One of the Cabrillo basketball program's best seasons in a long time ended with the Seahawks having earned 17 victories, the most wins under Head Coach Tony Marcopulos.  Cabrillo's winning percentage has improved in each of the 5 seasons with Coach Marcopulos at the helm.  For the 2nd time in 3 years the Cabrillo College Seahawks played their way into the NorCal Regional finals before losing to top-ranked and eventual undefeated state champion Fresno City College. The Seahawks finished the regular season ranked #10 in Northern California and 20th in the state. Cabrillo finished 3rd in the extremely competitive Coast Conference South.

For the first time in over a decade, the Seahawks finished the season with a winning record, 14 wins against 13 losses.  However, budget cuts reduced the state tournament field from 64 participants statewide to only 32.  The Seahawks would have been the 17th seed in Northern California and were therefore not included in the field. This was the first time in Marcopulos' tenure that his team did not made the play-offs.

The 2002-2003 season was a breakthrough season for the Seahawks. For the first time in California State tournament history, the 28th seed advanced to the Regional Final as the Seahawks scored upset wins over 5th-seed Feather River College and 12th-seed Skyline College. The Seahawks finished with an overall record of 15-18, the most Cabrillo wins since 1985. Their 62-55 win over San Jose City College was the first victory over that school since 1970.  All four sophomores continued their education and basketball careers at four-year institutions. On the academic side, the team’s year-end GPA was 3.1.

For the first time in school history the Seahawks made the playoffs in back-to-back seasons. The 17 wins in the last two seasons are more wins than the previous 5 seasons combined. Myree Bowden, who was selected First team All-Conference, was the first Cabrillo player to earn such honors in over 15 years.  Bowden also signed with the University of the Pacific, the first Cabrillo College player to sign a Division 1 scholarship in over 25 years.

In his first campaign as head coach of the Seahawks, Coach Marcopulos was able to lead Cabrillo into the playoffs for the first time since 1995. Cabrillo’s eight wins equaled the total number of wins during the previous three seasons!
