Laker Men’s Basketball: Empowering the Future

Laker basketball has a winning tradition that spans across the history of the program. Now in his 17th season, Coach Steve Hettinga, the most successful coach in Laker Basketball history, showcases his ability in sustaining a legacy that has endured for two decades.  Laker Men’s basketball is now looking to build on that momentum with a full facility upgrade. The upgrade will give the team the best chance to retain our current student-athletes, and also allow us to recruit some of the top GLIAC talent. We hope you will join us in endeavor to continue to grow the rich tradition of Laker Basketball.
