Alongside GB backcourt running mate, Luke Nelson, Young helped the Anteaters to a share of the regular season title before falling in the Conference Tournament.
His four-year stint with UC Irvine ended with defeat in the CollegeInsiders.com Tournament Championship game, but he looks back on his time there with pride.
"We did a lot of great things this season that we should be extremely proud about, setting records for most wins in a season and most road wins in a single season," said Young, who was named to the CIT all-tournament team.
"With all we accomplished we should be very happy with what we did, and it's really the same for my whole career at UC Irvine.
"I was able to accomplish individual records and things like that but the biggest thing was winning 20-plus games each season I was here.
"I'm very proud of everything I did in my career and I look back now with no regrets."
As well as playing a starring role in that watershed 28-10 season, Young also leaves UC Irvine with a collection of personal records.
The all-action floor general is the first player in the school's history to record 1000 points, 500 rebounds and 500 assists.
He also played 139 games and dished out 567 assists, both more than any other player in the programme's history.
Young added: "It's an honour to be the first to record those numbers.
"I'm sure guys in the future will join me, but being the first is something special. As far as leaving as the career assists leader, I give a lot of credit to my team-mates for making my job easier and ultimately putting the ball in the basket.
"It's crazy that I played 139 games here because it felt like a complete blur but I think that goes hand in hand with us having great teams and making runs in post-season play."
Young was instrumental as the Anteaters reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2015 too, another school first.
But it is not just on the court that progress was made.
"They developed me into a better person and player," he said.
"I feel like in both of those aspects I have gotten better over the course of four years. But as a player they pushed me to be the best I could and I think that's a reason why I was able to do the things I did."

The next step for Young is to plot his path to the pro ranks and, he hopes, more exposure to international basketball with the GB team.
"I'm just doing everything I can to prepare myself for a professional career because I want to play this game as long as I can or as long as I have passion and love for it as I do now.
"I was honoured to get that opportunity to play with the Senior Men's team
"It's definitely something I would love to be apart of in the future if I get the opportunity again because it's really nice to represent GB and what an honour it is to do that."
Young was a key part of the U20 squad that earned the GB programme huge respect on the international stage with a best-ever 11th-placed finish at the 2014 European Championship.
Fellow stars of that team, Kavell Bigby-Williams and Jordan Spencer - as well as Nelson - have made huge strides this year too.
Bigby-Williams picked up the NJCAA Division I Player of the Year award before committing to the storied University of Oregon programme while Spencer won the NCAA Division II title with Augustana.
Young is encouraged by the progress being made by members of that history-making squad, and sees no reason why they cannot be reunited at the senior level.
"Obviously I'm in touch with Luke quite often with being his team-mate at UC Irvine," Young said.
"But I talk to the other guys every so often. Kavell now going to Oregon has made such a huge leap from where he was on the U20 squad and I'm really happy for the chance that he's going to get at Oregon.
"Jordan it's the same. He just won a national championship so he's made noise as well. It's just great to see guys have so much success especially those who you've played with. I think each of us will find success in the senior international game.
"Who knows, maybe one day we will all be team-mates again on the senior men's team."
