Both College of the Redwoods teams hosted Shasta in a key doubleheader, while the Dick Niclai girls semifinals were held at Ferndale and Eureka high schools.
Check out some of our highlights from three of the games around the county above.
The CR women won their game in dramatic fashion, rallying from a seven-point deficit with a clutch run in the fourth quarter.
The CR men also won, knocking off Shasta to move into a tie with the Knights for first place in the Golden Valley Conference standings with three games remaining each.
The Eureka and Arcata girls both also won to advance to Friday night’s Dick Niclai tournament championship game, defeating St. Bernard’s and Ferndale, respectively.
