The Saint Ignatius Boys' Basketball program has had a rich and storied tradition of excellence on the floor, including sixteen Chicago Catholic League Championships, eight IHSA Regional Championships, one IHSA Sectional Championship, multiple regular season tournament championships, and over a dozen 20+ win seasons.

The Saint Ignatius basketball program has been synonymous with on court success for almost a century. Our true success as a program, however, is not only measured by wins, losses, and championships. The Wolfpack basketball program is much bigger than basketball. We strive to make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of everyone we come into contact with. Emphasizing values such as faith, love, service, teamwork, integrity, discipline, and commitment have helped us inspire our student-athletes to truly be "men for others" both on and off the court. Our mission is to coach, teach, and inspire our student-athletes so they can earn and experience success in every phase of their lives.
