Southwestern is looking forward to a playoff year for this season's Jaguar Men's Basketball team. With only 1 returner but 5 Red-shirts on the squad things are looking solid for us. We will have the best defense in the conference and get the ball up the court at break-neck speed.
We have endure the toughest schedule in the STATE, playing defending STATE CHAMPS (Mt. SAC); runner up Chaffey in addition to top teams - Irvine Valley, Mt San Jacinto, among others and the always difficult, competitive Pacific Coast Athletic Conference.
