Season Preview Basketball Fall 2016

We are very excited about our upcoming basketball season! This season, the Narwhals will return 8 players to the team. This returning core will be the key to a successful 2016-2017 season.
We are expecting to continue the trend of recent seasons of competitive basketball. The Narwhals are excited to compete against rival schools and new competitors. Student athletes will lead the way to a rewarding, challenging, and fun season. Our season lasts from November- February, taking the team all over NYC and includes a tournament in Boston.
Narwhal Basketball has grown over the years, but we still have a way to go. The Narwhals are always looking for student support to raise awareness of the program. Narwhal fans are invited and encouraged to attend all games and root for the team! Students have the biggest influence on the program, so whether you love basketball or not, getting involved and telling your peers about the team means a lot. You can find information about the program including the team’s schedule on and in the Athletic Department’s weekly newsletter.
Basketball holds tryouts every semester for full-time students, undergraduate or graduate. Students of all skill levels are welcome. Players are chosen based on performance and dedication. If you are interested in trying out, please contact Coach David Pirvat-Gilman at with your former basketball experience and availability.
