“Mondragon was deservedly named to the all tournament team,” coach Paul McLean said. “Miguel is undoubtedly one of our best players. His timing is fantastic. He is always in the right position and anticipates what will happen next. He is important to us on both ends of the field and works to lead by example on the field. He deserves to be recognized in this way.”
