Mens Basketball

Men's Basketball at Rhodes State offers students a chance to compete with other college students. The Barons compete against the other colleges in the Ohio Regional Campus Conference as well as many NCAA Division II and NAIA Division I schools. O.R.C.C. basketball consists of 10 teams. There is a regular season championship as well as a state tournament held at the end of the year. The Barons play a 30 game schedule. Part of this schedule includes leaving the state for two invitational tournaments. Tryouts for the basketball team are typically the second week of October and the first game is usually around the first week in November. We follow the rules set forth by the NCAA.
