Why Choose Ohlone? - Ohlone College Renegades Men's Basketball

Win!

Men's Basketball player.
  • We win because we recruit winners!

  • 4-year schools recruit our players, because we win and we defend!

  • We examined the men’s basketball programs in our conference (we included both divisions—South and North). We looked at winning percentage from 2000 to 2004. Two things were evident:
    1. Ohlone College has been a highly successful program under Coach John Peterson’s direction.
    2. Our league is loaded! To win back-to-back championships is an extraordinary accomplishment.
