The Jesuit basketball program features Varsity, JV, and Freshman teams. The Tigers have a long tradition of success on the hardwood, including state titles in 1950 (the first Catholic school to win a state title), 1984, and 2013. The 2012-13 team finished 31-1 and is considered perhaps the greatest team in Tampa Bay-area history, having won 30 games by 10 or more points and going unbeaten against Florida competition. Head coach Neal Goldman enters his 30th season in 2016-17 with a career record of 535-268 and 11 District titles. In 2015-16 the Tigers went 25-6, winning the District for a fifth straight year and capturing the Region title on the road to advance to the State Tournament, before dropping a 55-54 nailbiter to Bishop Kenny.
