From February 4-6, men's and women's basketball teams from 13 Jesuit institutions played in 10 Jesuit vs. Jesuit games; across the country, attendees saw the Jesuit Basketball Spotlight (JBS) video, messages on Jesuit education broadcast during the games, collections for Jesuit Refugee Service / USA from a student outreach group at the University of San Francisco, and even a special game ball presentation before the Fordham Rams took on the Hawks at Saint Joseph's University! What's more is that the nation's #1 men's basketball team, Gonzaga University, was in action against Santa Clara University.

Mission & Identity

The distinctiveness of a Jesuit education stems from its deep-rooted history and a mission grounded in faith and intellectual rigor. Since its beginnings in 1548, when the first Jesuit institution opened its doors in Messina, Sicily, Jesuit higher education remains committed to academic excellence, service, leadership and caring for the whole person.
