RVC Men’s Basketball received the 8th seed and will be competing on their home court. The Men’s NJCAA Basketball National Tournament will run March 9 - 12 at Rock Valley College. This is their sixth National Tournament in the last nine years.

For the eighth time in ten seasons, RVC Women’s Basketball is heading to the NJCAA National Tournament, March 9 - 12 in Rochester, MN, at the Rochester Region Sports Center. RVC Women’s Basketball is ranked #7 and received the 6th seed in this year’s tournament. 

“Sending four teams to National Tournaments at the same time for the first time in history is a huge accomplishment,” said RVC Athletic Director Darin Monroe. “We are proud of our Men’s Bowling, Women’s Bowling, Men’s Basketball and Women’s Basketball student-athletes and coaches. They have continued to raise the bar for our department, and we wish them the best in the final step in their journeys toward hanging another banner in the PEC.”
