Gator Men's Basketball

A member of the Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC), Green River College has been playing basketball since the doors first opened in 1966.

Playing in "The Swamp", Gator Basketball has long opened opportunities to student-athletes searching to continue their athletic and academic careers in the West region.

Under the guide of NWAC Hall of Fame coach Bob Aubert, the Gators won the 1969 NWAACC Championship. Then in the 2002-2003 season Coach Travis DeCuire led the team with University of Washington transfer Tre Simmons (first team all Pac-10) to a Western Region Title and a second place finish at the NWAACC Championships. The 2014-15 Gator squad qualified for the NWAC Tournament finishing in fourth place earning the first trophy for the college since 2003.

Now, the Swamp Boys are making their mark all-around the NWAC Conference with the guidance of Coach of the Year (21-22) Godfrey Drake. In 2018-19, the team had an outstanding record of 20-11, 10-4 competed in the NWAC Championship tournament and finishing top 8 overall. Year after year, the Swamp Boys continue to make tournament appearances in seasons 2021-22 (19-11, 10-4) and 2022-2023 (23-6, 12-2).

Today, finishing 27-6, 11-3, winning 10 games in a row with Head Coach Godfrey Drake, he leads the Swamp Boys to their first NWAC Championship title since 1969.
