CHARLOTTE, North Carolina - MCC sophomore guard Majesty Brandon capped a tremendous season by being named first team All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association on Monday.
The latest honor wraps up a staller two-year career for the explosive Brandon, who became the first Monroe player to be named to the All-American first team since Jeron Belin in 2009. He was also a first team All-Region III selection, as well as the Regional Player of the Year.
The 6-foot guard was a high-volume scorer who led both the Tribunes (14-13) as well as the region in points per game at 21.4. He went over the 1,000-point mark in MCC's regular season finale against Jamestown and finished with 1,041 over two seasons.
Brandon scored 20 or more points 17 times and eclipsed 30 five times. He registered a season-high 35 points in an 80-74 loss to Jamestown in the first round of the regional tournament.
He scored 30 or more in three straight games from Feb. 4-9 to bring home regional and national Player of the Week honors. Brandon shot 46 percent overall from the field, 40 percent from 3-point land, and 73.5 percent from the foul line. He led the team in 3-pointers made with 68.
