North Idaho Men's Basketball Ranked Nationally

North Idaho Basketball Team

The Sporting News released the 2016-17 College Basketball edition and the North Idaho College men’s basketball team was tabbed as the 18th best team in the nation in the preseason polls. The national poll considers all two-year colleges in the nation, including the NJCAA, California, and the Northwest Athletic Conference. The Cardinals, coming off the best season in school history at 31-2, only return 2 players from last year’s roster, but reloaded with a talented group of freshmen, redshirts, and transfers. The Cardinals join the NWAC this season after reaching the Sweet 16 at the NJCAA National Tournament in Hutchinson, KS in their final year in the NJCAA.
