After redshirting in the 2018-2019 season, Basile was named to the Horizon League All-Freshman Team in 2020, tallying 6.2 PPG and 4.3 RPG. The future Hokie followed up his inaugural year on the court as a Second Team All-Horizon League selection, pouring in 15.0 points and 7.0 rebounds per contest en route to the 2021 Horizon League regular season title.
