About Us

You do not have to stop playing basketball when you graduate from high school or transfer to OHIO Chillicothe. Our men’s basketball brings Shoemaker Center alive through intense, fast-breaking teamwork. Basketball is not confined just to the court, either. The Shoemaker Center is considered one of the premier venues among regional campuses in the state with seating for 2,400 spectators. Here, you will play under newer, brighter lights on a state-of-the art floor embedded with the OHIO logo. Shoemaker Center’s roof was recently replaced along with upgrades to heating and air-conditioning.

Being part of a team also means being part of a community. And in our community at OHIO Chillicothe, the City of Chillicothe, and our broader regional service area, you will be able to play in front of family and friends. As Athletic Director, Kim McKimmy, has observed, “Our student-athletes learn and display qualities of time-management, maintaining poise in pressure situations, teamwork and sacrificing individual accomplishments for a common goal. These are attributes that are important to individuals over the long term.” Contact our coaching staff about a tryout and join the fastest-played game in the Ohio Regional Campus Conference!

In 2014, OHIO Chillicothe ceremonially retired the #42 jersey of OHIO Chillicothe student-athlete, Larry Cox. Officer Cox graduated from OHIO Chillicothe with a degree in Law Enforcement Technology, served as the D.A.R.E. officer for Chillicothe City Schools, and was recognized by President George Bush at the National Peace Officers Memorial Service. Officer Cox was a Chillicothe campus Distinguished Alumnus and the 2011 Community Hero Award Recipient.
