Men’s Basketball Tips off 100th Season

Men’s Basketball Tips off 100th Season
The 2016-17 Royals

The men’s basketball team tipped off the 100th season in team history when the Royals hosted the Hilton Scranton Invitational in the Long Center in November. The Royals captured the title in the event with wins over Sarah Lawrence and Bard to start the historic season on the right foot.

bball-oldThe first game in Royals’ history took place in 1916-17, when the University was known as St. Thomas College and the team was called the Tommies. The team went 7-8 that season, playing a mix of local high schools and colleges. The basketball program has competed in every season since then, except for one — the men’s basketball program was suspended during the 1943-44 season due to World War II.
