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, five NAIA National 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, 82% 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 87 times.

Head Coach

Profile
Justin Piergrossi

Justin Piergrossi is entering his fifteenth season as head coach at Skyline College. Since the day he arrived, the Trojans have concentrated on recruiting and developing local players to fill their roster. In fourteen seasons, 179 out of 200 players who completed a season were from Skyline’s defined recruiting area. The emphasis on local players has provided an excellent opportunity for many young men to develop on and off the floor. Since 2004, 96% of the players who completed two years in the program earned their Associate's Degree or transferred to a four-year school. In addition, 28 players have moved on to continue their playing career at the university level (82% on scholarship) and 3 players have signed professional contracts. Piergrossi’s former players have appeared in the NCAA Tournament or NAIA National Tournament on eleven different occasions. Read about the success of his players at the four-year level.
