The basketball team of CSU recruited Bai Jiang, former national champion and reputable player as the coach in the end of 2011. Thereafter, over the five years after the establishment of the high level basketball team, both men’s and women’s team have grown from nothing to a giant. In particular, this year, both teams made it to the final four, which was the first time for the women’s team and the second time for the men’s team.
