The Humboldt State women’s basketball team will host Cal State East Bay in the opening round of the CCAA tournament on Tuesday night.
Game time is set for 7 p.m.
“It’s huge to play a first-round game at home,” said HSU head coach Michelle Bento-Jackson. “I told the girls we’ve worked all season to put ourselves in this position to be fortunate enough to host. Playing in Lumberjack Arena is a special feeling and we hope the local fans come out and support us.”
The HSU women closed out the regular season with a record of 19-6, including going 17-5 in conference and finishing third in the final standings.
On Saturday night they claimed an eighth straight win, defeating San Francisco State 76-66.
Alexia Thrower turned in another impressive performance in the win, scoring a career-best 34 points and adding 10 rebounds for a conference-leading 15th double-double.
East Bay, meanwhile, has lost two straight and has a record of 13-15 (10-12 in conference).
The first 200 HSU students in attendance with valid campus ID will receive free admission to Tuesday’s game.
