Cal Poly Humboldt will host both CCAA basketball tournaments at Lumberjack Arena this week, and even though the host school won’t be involved there should still be plenty of great basketball for local fans to check out with 10 games scheduled between Thursday and Saturday.
The opening day will feature four quarterfinals, beginning at noon, while all four semifinals will be played on Friday and both championship games on Saturday (5 p.m. for the women and 8 p.m. for the men).
The men’s tournament will feature three of the top 20 teams in the nation, including No. 6 Cal State San Bernardino, No. 11 Chico State and No. 19 Cal State San Marcos.
Those three, along with Cal State Monterey Bay and Cal Poly Pomona are also ranked in the top 10 in the most recent NCAA Division II West Region Poll.
The women’s tournament features two of the 10 teams in the most recent Region poll — No. 3 Cal State East Bay and No. 4 Cal State San Marcos.
The tournament champions will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Tournament.
