City College of San Francisco Tip Off Tournament
Dates: November 2-4
Teams: (1) San Francisco, Alameda, Napa, (2) Fresno, (7) Yuba, Western Arizona, (6) Santa Rosa, Mt. San Antonio
The City College of San Francisco Tip Off Tournament Will begin action in a couple hours as six teams from Northern California, one Southern California team and a team from Arizona kick off opening season action at 2pm. Four teams from our preseason poll will take part at the three day event.
In the first game of the day, 2nd ranked Fresno opens their state championship quest against unranked Napa. Fresno will look to pick up their first win on the season against a Napa team that is in rebuild mode after having a solid season a year ago. In the second game, 7th ranked Yuba will take on Western Arizona. The 49ers are another team that appear to be in rebuild mode after losing many pieces from a year ago as they will face off against Western Arizona at 4pm. At 6pm, top ranked San Francisco will take on a much improved Alameda team. Alameda is an improved team but they will be tested by our top team in Northern California as the Rams look to make another championship run this season. If Fresno and San Francisco win, we will see an early season battle of our top two ranked teams in Northern California in a early season high alert match up. In the night cap at 8pm, 6th ranked Santa Rosa will take on Mt. San Antonio. It will be a game to pay attention to as the Mounties are making the trip from Southern California and usually have a solid showing at this tournament.
