PORTLAND, Ore. – Senior guard Joseph Foster of Oregon Tech was unanimously named Cascade Collegiate Conference Player of the Year by a vote of the league’s head coaches, the conference office announced Monday.
The 5-11 senior from Vallejo, Calif., led the CCC in conference scoring average (18.9 ppg), was third in free throw percentage (.837) and sixth in three point field goals made per game (2.28). Foster led the Owls to their third straight Cascade Collegiate Conference regular-season title.
For the sixth time, Dan Miles of Oregon Tech was selected the CCC’s Coach of the Year after leading the Owls to their third straight CCC regular season crown.

Miles is in his 40th year at Oregon Tech and now has recorded 934 career victories.
