NHTI Men’s Basketball: Go Lynx! 

The NHTI men’s basketball program is a top program in the USCAA and regularly sits atop of the YSCC. In the 2019-20 season, the Lynx captured our second USCAA Division 2 National Championship by defeating Penn State Greater Allegheny by a 74-70 final. The other USCAA National Championship came in 2004-2005, where the NHTI Lynx captured the first ever national championship in basketball in the state of New Hampshire.

The Lynx continue to be successful in YSCC Conference play; we have won the YSCC Tournament in 2018, 2019, and 2020 and have held the regular season championship title for the past four seasons.
