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 97% 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.
