Johnston Community College is excited too add men's and women's basketball to its athletics program beginning in 2016.
College officials believe the expansion will enhance the student experience, foster pride, serve as a recruitment tool, and be another opportunity to connect the community to the college.
The men's basketball team will compete in Division 3 Region 10 of the National Junior College Athletic Association, playing junior college teams in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The women's team will play club level in Region 10. Home games will be played at the Smithfield Recreation and Aquatics Center (SRAC).
