Basketball Players Named to All Mountain Valley Conference

Suhaylah Banks, a freshman guard from Albany High School, and Raheem Felder, a freshman guard from Lansingburgh High School were both recently named to the 3rd Team All Mountain Valley Conference Basketball Team as voted on by the conference coaches. Both players led their respective teams in scoring this year for the SCCC Royals. Congrats to both!

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.
