The Navy Midshipmen have been to the NCAA Tournament 11 times in school history. They have been to the Sweet Sixteen three times and the Elite Eight twice. Navy has appeared in the NIT one time as well. David Robinson, who went on the a great NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA is the best player in Navy history and led the 1986 team to within one game of the Final Four.
Navy plays their home games at Alumni Hall which opened in 1991 and seats over 5700 fans. It sits at the historic Annapolis campus which is worth the visit even without a game to attend. The fans are very into the game and the students really support their team as one might expect. The view of the court is great and you can enjoy some great food items such as pizza, hot dogs, pretzels and sodas as you watch a great game.
Navy basketball is part of the Patriot League which includes teams such as American U, Army, Boston U, Bucknell, Colgate, Holy Cross, Lehigh, Lafayette and Loyola MD. These schools will be trying to win the Patriot League Tournament to earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. They will also be trying to win the Patriot League regular season championship to gain a postseason tournament bid as well.
Bring all the friends and family to some Navy basketball this season at Alumni Hall. Do not miss out on a great college experience.
