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.

Upon graduation, he moved to New Hampshire where he attended NHTI, and was a leader on the mens basketball team.  

 

Harris had an amazing season in 2012/2013, where he was voted USCAA First Team All-American, and YSCC First Team All-Conference player. His leadership was unparalleled as was his dedication to the NHTI basketball program.
