The men’s basketball teams have one of the winningest programs in junior college history with four NJCAA Championships, three NJCAA runners-up, and four third place finishes. In addition, they have had 27 national tournament appearances and have recorded the most National Tournament wins. The women’s team won the NJCAA National Championship in 1982 and the Lady Greyhounds have made 14 national tournament appearances since the program was established in 1977. Many athletes from both programs have continued on to the NCAA Division 1 level and a number of them have played professionally.
