The 2017-18 Basketball Season is Peeking Around the Corner

The Antelope Valley College Men’s 2016-17 Basketball program shocked the JUCO experts when they fought their way into to the State Tournament.  With only one player returning from the 2015-16 elite 8 team, no one expected this team to come nearly this far.  However the AVC coaching staff did an outstanding job of recruiting and putting together a team who sported a 22-11 record(6th straight years of 20+ wins).  Congratulations!

The staff is current working to finish scholarship placement of the five graduating sophomores on the team.  Two of the five players have already made their decision where they will be playing next year.

Five freshmen players for the 2016-17 teams will be eligible to return to AVC this coming season.  All five players have extensive experience and they may be the best defensive core of players AVC has had returning for some years. More on this later. 

Add to that, AVC has a number of red-shirt players who have a shot at strengthening this year’s team.  Of course, AVC will add additional very talented players to the team as well.  Stay tuned, this looks to be a very interesting team.

AVC will be starting team workouts this coming week.
