Justin Wilcox, a native of Staten Island, New York, has played for a guard for the Titans for two years. A marketing management major, Wilcox will also go on to play for Albany State University.


“When we started the basketball program here at Albany Tech, the plan was for the players to start here and continue on with a four-year college or university,” said Sylvester Patterson, men’s head coach for the Titans. “The fact that other colleges and universities are seeing the talent we see in our players makes this program a
success.”


The Albany Tech Titans men’s team was started in 2008 and continues to grow and provide an outlet for students to play basketball while attending Albany Tech. The basketball program is a part of the Georgia Junior College Athletics Association (GJCAA).
