The 2015–16 San Jose State Spartans men's basketball team represented San Jose State University during the 2015–16 NCAA Division I men's basketball season.

They finished the season 9–22, 4–14 in Mountain West play to finish in last place. They lost in the first round of the Mountain West Tournament to Colorado State.

Previous season[edit]

The Spartans finished the season 2–28, 0–18 in Mountain West play to finish in last place. During the season, the Spartans were invited and participated in the Wooden Legacy in Anaheim, California.
