The varsity men’s basketball program is a long-standing sport at Dalhousie University. The team has won a total of nine Atlantic University Sport (AUS) championship titles, the most recent and third-consecutive at the end of the 2021-22 season. The program has seen a lot of success in recent years, winning their first-ever national medal – a bronze at the end of the 2017 when they hosted the U SPORTS championships in Halifax. The 2019-20 team earned a program-best silver medal at the 2019-20 national championships.
Since the team’s inception, numerous athletes have received recognition for their accomplishments on the court as AUS all-stars and/or U SPORTS all-Canadians. In the classroom many athletes have been distinguished as U SPORTS Academic all-Canadians.
