College of the Canyons freshman Andrew Henderson has been named to the 2021-22 California Community College Men's Basketball Coaches Associations (CCCMBCA) All-State Team, capping a season in which he also took home all-conference honors.
A full list of the entire 2021-22 All-State team is included here.
Henderson was one of 23 players, and 10 freshmen, from both the north and south regions to earn All-State honors. An additional seven players earned All-State Honorable Mention accolades.
The forward out of Chatsworth High School averaged 19.7 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, while shooting better than 56 percent from the field for the Cougars.
His scoring average ranked third in the entire Western State Conference (WSC) tops in the WSC, South and 17th in the state.
Henderson reached double-digit point totals in all but two games, scoring a season-high 31 points vs. Santa Monica on Feb. 2. His season-high rebounding total of 16 came two days prior vs. Antelope Valley. Defensively, Henderson came away with 34 steals and 42 blocks across 25 games.
Those numbers also helped Henderson earn All-WSC, South First Team honors.
Henderson is the first Cougar to earn All-State Team Honors since Jaylen Bland did so at the conclusion of the 2012-13 season. More recently, former Cougars Christopher Bradford (2019-20) and Michael Kalu (2016-17) were All-State Honorable Mention honorees.
Canyons (15-11, 7-7) finished the 2021-22 campaign tied for third in the WSC, South. Playing with an all-freshman squad, the Cougars won six of their final eight games to narrowly miss the postseason.
