The 2016-2017 season was both a historical and resurgent year for the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Men’s Varsity Basketball team. In our sixth season as members of the MIAA “A” conference and The Baltimore Catholic League, the team made it to both championship games, losing to Mount St. Joseph in both games. Under the leadership of 2nd year coach Hakim Hibbert, the team consisted of three seniors, five juniors, and three sophomores.
Last year’s team finished with an overall record of 29-11. The 29 victories are the second most wins in school history. The team finished in 1st place in the MIAA “A” Red Division and in 3rd place in the Baltimore Catholic League. The Cougars finished the season with a #5 ranking in both The Baltimore Sun and Varsity Sports Network polls, while finishing 9th in the State of Maryland in the USA Today Poll. The success the team had on the court, earned them an invitation to the 57th Annual Alhambra Catholic Invitational Tournament, where the team finished in 3rd place. This was the second time in school history that the team was invited to the Alhambra.
Individually, senior Terry Nolan (George Washington University) was selected 1st Team All Baltimore Catholic League, 1st Team All-Metro and MIAA All-Conference. Junior Jordon Jones was selected 3rd Team All Baltimore Catholic League, 2nd Team All-Metro, and MIAA All Conference. The Cougars also graduated senior Devin Gaines who received the Dave Kropfelder Never Never Quit Award as well as senior Christian Evans(Hood College).
