LBWCC sophomore forward Troyce Manassa added to his already impressive personal accolades after being selected to the 2014-2015 NJCAA DI Men’s basketball 2nd team All-American award.


The National Junior College Athletic Association is split up between three divisions, with DI being the biggest. The NJCAA selects players from all DI programs across the country. The NJCAA is the second largest national intercollegiate organization in the United States with more than 500 member schools in 43 states.


Manassa was also selected as Region 22 Player of the Year, which is given to the top junior college basketball player in the state of Alabama. Mansassa was also selected as a member of the 1st team All-Region and 1st team South Division.


Manassa plans to continue playing at a four-year school, but hasn’t chosen anywhere yet.
