College basketball fans in Baton Rouge will have a third team to root for come November.

That's when BRCC's teams make their debut.

For the first time ever, the school is home to a men's and women's team.

Coaches were hired last spring, and a majority of the players come from local high schools.

Despite the short preparation time, coaches say they're here to win.
