Announcing the All-OCC teams as picked by 270 Hoops

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- As we are nearing the end of the season, it's time to begin the process of naming all-conference teams around the area. 270 Hoops is proud to release our All-OCC teams for the Buckeye, Capital and Cardinal divisions on Tuesday. The Central and Ohio divisions will follow on Wednesday.

Take a look below at the first and second teams for the three divisions.

OCC-Buckeye MVP

Kaleb Wesson

Sr. C, Westerville South

Wesson has dominated the 2016-17 season, leading all OCC-Buckeye players with 23.1 points per game. Wesson notched an area-high for points with 49 in a loss to Upper Arlington in late January. The Ohio State signee has led the Wildcats to an undefeated mark in conference play through Feb. 7.

OCC-Buckeye Underclassman of the Year

Ben Roderick

So. SG/SF, Olentangy Liberty

The sharp-shooting Roderick is the OCC-Buckeye Underclassman of the Year after leading Olentangy Liberty with 18.1 points per game. Roderick has enjoyed a breakout season, leading the Patriots to a 12-6 mark and 4-3 in league play. Roderick has impressed with his play-making ability both off the catch and off the bounce, as the 6-foot-5 wing can score in a variety of ways. 

OCC-Buckeye First Team

Julius Brown Westerville North Junior 13.8
Jason Sieve Olentangy Senior 16.9
Ben Roderick Olentangy Liberty Sophomore 18.1

OCC-Capital MVP

BJ Duling

Sr. SF, Newark

The dominant wing forward Duling has arguably been the best player in Central Ohio this season, leading Newark to an 18-1 mark overall and undefeated in league play. Duling has been at his best against the most elite of competition, posting a season-high 35 points in the Wildcats' only loss of the season at Pickerington Central. Duling should be a top candidate for Ohio Mr. Basketball at the end of the season.

OCC-Capital Underclassman of the Year

Brady Snyder

So. PG, Canal Winchester

Snyder is the unanimous selection by 270 Hoops for OCC-Capital Underclassman of the Year. The sharp-shooting Snyder has enjoyed a breakout season, averaging 15.4 points to lead Canal to double-digit wins. Snyder's season high of 24 points came in an opening win over Independence to start the season.

OCC-Cardinal MVP

Isaiah Speelman

Jr. SF, Hilliard Bradley

Helping lead Hilliard Bradley to its best season in school history, Speelman has been an instrumental part to the turnaround of the Jaguars program that began during his freshman season. Averaging double-figures in every year since, Speelman is having his best year yet, leading Bradley with 17.4 points per game. Speelman recorded a career-high 38 points on the opening night of the season in a win over Teays Valley.

OCC-Cardinal Underclassman of the Year

Matt Allocco

Fr. PG, Hilliard Bradley

While Speelman was a freshman during the Bradley turnaround, Allocco is a freshman for the Jaguars takeover. Breaking out this season for Bradley, Allocco has led all freshmen in the division with 11.6 points per game, including a career-high 33 points vs. Worthington Kilbourne earlier in the season. Allocco's shooting ability will have a big impact on just how far Bradley can go this postseason.
