The playoff fields have been paired down to the Great Eight and every game tonight has a trip to the state Final Four next weekend at Consumnes River College in Sacramento riding on it.
Buoyed by playoff performances by shooter Carlotta Kloppenburg, young point guard Rian Mew and reserve forward Candace Sakuda, among others, the Ventura College women's basketball team (31-1) have survived difficult games with Pasadena City and Cypress.
The Pirates welcome Foothill Conference champion San Bernardino Valley (28-3) to the VC Athletic Event Center tonight having won 22 straight games, including two tight, physical, dramatic games against the Wolverines Dec. 10 (53-45) and Dec. 30 (49-46). The two top defensive teams in the state should stage another similar showdown tonight.
We'll have all the live updates here on Twitter.
The SBVC@VC women's game is being broadcasted online by HomefieldSports.com.
