November 19, 2017 - The SCCC men's basketball team earned their biggest win in over ten years Sunday afternoon when they defeated local rival HVCC by the score of 70-69 in overtime at the downtown Schenectady YMCA. The Royals led,34-26 at halftime but saw that lead evaporate in the second half when HVCC tied the game at the end of regulation at 61 a piece. But the Royals outscored the Vikings by the slimmest of margins,9-8 in the extra session to pick up the big win. The Royals were led in scoring by sophomore guard Malcolm Price with 20 points, freshman guard Raheem Felder with 16 and sophomore forward Javol Fuller with 13.

Welcome to the Royals Men's Basketball Program

The men's basketball program at Schenectady County Community College is now lead by our new head coach, Harry Rolle. Coach Rolle played for the Royals back in his college days at SCCC and was an exciting point guard for the Royals. He brings that same excitement to the sidelines as our head coach. The team will play strong defense, press at every opportunity and play up- tempo on offense. The Royals participate in the Mountain Valley Conference and Region 3 of the NJCAA. The competition is high with such teams as Herkimer College, HVCC, FMCC and MVCC on the schedule. The Royals will play a full 25 game schedule with the goal to make the Region 3 playoffs where the winner goes to the NJCAA national tournament at Sullivan Community College in Loch Sheldrake, N.Y. So if you are looking to join an up and coming program, SCCC might be the right place for you.
