Grambling State Tigers Basketball
The Grambling State Tigers basketball team made history in 1961 when they won the NAIA National championship tournament. In beating Georgetown College (KY), they became the first and only college basketball team in the state of Louisiana to win a national basketball championship.
They established themselves as fierce contenders in the world of college basketball. In the year that followed their historic victory, they made it to the Final Four in the NAIA several times. In 1963, they placed 3rd. Then, they repeated that feat again in 1966 when they beat both Fort Hays State (KS) and Norfolk State (VA) respectively.
Between 1959 and 1971, the Grambling State Tigers would appear in the NAIA National Tournament eight times. They would establish a NAIA National Tournament record of 19–7. However, the Grambling State Tigers have yet to play in the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.
The 2012-13 season was particularly bad for the team. During this season they became the eighth NCAA Division I team to finish a season winless, going 0-28.
In terms of rivalries, the biggest rivals for the Grambling State Tigers on the court are the Southern Jaguars.
