Game On: Basketball at South Georgia State College!
Our Student Athlete Commitment
The athletic program at SGSC is designed to be different from other programs in the nation. We know there is more to a successful athletic program than just winning games. Our program is designed to teach athletes the key elements that will make their current and future lives more successful. We do this in a family environment where we truly care about our Student Athlete’s personal, educational, as well as athletic needs.
The Men’s Basketball program is fully committed to the mission of the athletic program. In just 4 years as a basketball program, we have averaged 20 wins a season, won the GCAA Conference Tournament in 2010-11, played in the NJCAA National Tournament in 2010-11 and made the conference tournament all 3 years eligible while being nationally ranked in numerous defensive categories. Equally important, is the success of our student-athletes off the court. In the four years of the program’s existence, 30 student-athletes have moved on to continue their education at four year institutions with 28 of those receiving basketball scholarships. Also over the past four years, 80% of our basketball players have graduated with an Associate degree before moving on. We are very proud of our student-athletes while they are here but they go on to accomplish much more– just like all of our student body strives to do.
