CC Athletics: Men's Basketball 2017


Colorado College Men's Basketball is a proud Division III member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference. We compete against Division III opponents from all over the United States. Our conference is made up of teams from Texas, Lousiana, and Colorado. The Tigers are led by Head Coach Andy Partee. Partee is in his 12th season as Head Coach at Colorado College. 


As the costs to operate and maintain a nationally competitive Division III men's basketball program continue to rise, we ask you to consider a gift to our program to directly improve the student-athlete experience for Colorado College Tigers. We have several purchase goals on the horizon with the biggest being a foreign basketball tour during the summer of 2019 to Costa Rica. Thank you in advance for your support and consideration. Your donations help the next generation of Tigers write the next chapter of success for the men's basketball program.


Giving to our project will directly affect the student-athlete experience for the men's basketball players at Colorado College. We want to provide the best for our players and continue to offer among the best facilities, equipment, meals, and travel experiences that Division III has to offer. Your donations will help us achieve that goal and take the program to an even higher level.

Chris Martin (Senior from Albuquerque, NM) "Prior to being recruited for basketball at Colorado College, I had only been on campus to play in hockey tournaments. I never imagined that just a few short years later I would have the opportunity to play basketball in college. I am extremely thankful to have been blessed with the opportunity to attend such a great college, and continue to play the sport I love. At CC, I am able to be both a student and an athlete, while also being able to get involved with a number of student groups and community service programs. Being a part of the men’s basketball team at CC has helped me to form relationships that I know will last for life. The friendships and memories that I share with the team are things that I am extremely grateful for. Being part of a program that is consistently competitive in our conference play, as well as having the opportunity to make history by wining conference this year for the men’s basketball program is truly a unique opportunity. I hope future student-athletes will also have the chance to experience the environment of our team."

Thank you so much for your generosity and support!
