    You're gonna have to more specific for anyone to give you an answer on the basketball team's toughness. Tough to walk-on? Tough to play against? Tough to maintain a good GPA while on the team?

    Are you a 6ft girl? That might make it a little easier.

    Are you a 6ft guy? No way you are walking on, if you had that kind of basketball ability you would have been recruited.

    Both teams are highly recruited D1 teams, doubtful anyone is walking on.

    They have a JV that is also pretty tough to make as well.

    Unfortunately yes lol, I am 6ft tall and BBALL is not really my sport so I'm not going to get into any division, D1, D2, D3

    but volleyball, I can defend myself better

    Well, the AFA isn't the CGA, but people can and do walk on to the team here if they are good enough. Sometimes when you come from a small town and you aren't playing AAU coupled with playing more than one sport, you can be overlooked (Gordon Hayward, anyone?) during the recruiting process, but the proof is in the pudding, if you are good you will get picked up. If you are mediocre, don't count on it. People can and do try out for the DI teams at the SAs and do make the final roster.
