SUNY Schenectady will be suspending their men’s and women’s basketball program until further notice. The College has been without a home court for over a year due to the lingering impacts of the pandemic, severely impacting our ability to recruit players and field competitive teams. This was a very difficult decision and we want to extend our thanks and appreciation to our coaches and student-athletes for their dedication over the past few years.
