Men's Basketball


Skyline Men's Basketball is committed to fielding a team of local players. Our primary focus is Development- both on and off the court. As a result, our players are prepared for success at the four-year level. Since 2005, former Skyline players have appeared in one National Championship game, five NCAA Tournaments, been named All-American once and All-Conference six times. In addition, three former players have signed professional contracts. Of our players who have moved on to play at the four-year level, 79% have done so on athletic scholarship. Academic success is also a key component at Skyline. A recipient of the prestigious Scholar Team Award, our program boasts a 96% graduation/transfer rate among two-year players. In addition, members of the Men's Basketball team have been named to the Dean's List 82 times.

Skyline falls to SFCC 64-56
The Trojans opened conference play against the #1 ranked team in Northern California. Skyline took a 28-22 lead into half-time, but came up short in the end. SFCC came into the game averaging 90 ppg. Skyline held SFCC to its lowest point total on the season, its lowest number of 3-point field goals made, and its lowest number of offensive rebounds this year. Skyline’s defensive intensity and rebounding effort gave them a chance to win; however, the Trojans shot just 38% from the field and 58% from the FT line.
