In his four years, the program went 94-29 and sent 18 players to four-year schools, including seven to NCAA Division I schools - most recently Xavier Cochran to the University of Albany. Additionally, he has coached 14 all-conference players and three All-Americans.
In 2015-16, Raine was integral in leading Owens to an 18-13 mark overall and a 9-5 finish in OCCAC play.

In addition to that, Cochran and fellow freshman Derrik Jamerson Jr. each garnered All-OCCAC recognition.
In 2014-15, Raine helped lead Owens to a 25-7 overall record and a 12-2 mark in OCCAC play.

In 2013-14, Raine helped lead Owens to their third straight district championship game appearance, before they lost on a buzzer beater to No. 1 Cincinnati State. Along the way, he helped the team capture their first conference championship since the 2001-02 season. Following the season, all five sophomores moved on to four-year schools, while big man Bikramjit Gill was named a Third Team All-American by the NJCAA.
In his first year, Raine helped the team finish 26-10 overall. Along with way, they captured the Region XII District 11 tournament championship and finished fourth at the NJCAA D-II National Tournament. It was the program's best season in 13 years.
