PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two members of the Plymouth State College men’s basketball team were recognized by the Little East Conference Monday with selections to the 2003 All-Conference Team.
Sophomore guard Nick Pelotte (Bingham, Maine) and sophomore forward Anthony Oglesby (Brooklyn, N.Y.) both represented PSC on the All-LEC First Team. Pelotte was also named LEC Co-Player of the Year (with University of Southern Maine guard Jason Levecque). The awards were voted on by the league’s eight head coaches, and the announcement made by LEC Commissioner William M. Moore.
A 5’11” guard, Pelotte led the Panthers and ranked second in the conference in scoring (18.7 ppg). He tossed in 66 three-pointers (in 169 attempts), second most in the LEC. Pelotte led PSC in scoring 15 times this season, scoring at least 30 points on five occasions. The 2001-02 New England Rookie of the Year, Pelotte was also named LEC Player of the Week four times this season.
A 6’3” forward, Oglesby finished in the top five in the conference in five different categories – fifth in scoring (15.6 ppg), second in rebounding (8.7 rpg), first in steals (2.3 spg) and third in field goal percentage (.537). He was PSC’s leading scorer eight times and the team’s leading rebounder in 20 games. Oglesby is in his first year at PSC after transferring from the University of New Hampshire.
Oglesby and Pelotte have been instrumental in leading the Panthers to a 21-7 record under fourth-year head coach John Scheinman, the second-most wins in a season in school history. The Panthers finished second in the LEC during the regular season with a 10-4 mark, and were edged by Western Connecticut in the LEC Tournament championship game last Saturday, 65-63.
