HISTORIC EVENING OF BASKETBALL SET FOR WED. FEB. 12
 
It’s a first: College of San Mateo, Caņada College, and City College of San Francisco will all play basketball games on the same evening at CSM on Wednesday, Feb. 12
 
The historic event, in the 98th season of sports at CSM, begins at 5 p.m. with the San Mateo women’s team (14-11, 3-4 Coast North) hoping to stay in post-season contention when they host title contender CCSF (17-7, 5-2).
 
The 7 p.m. men’s game pits CSM (11-13, 5-5 Coast North) against San Mateo District rival Caņada (3-19, 1-9), which also uses the College Heights Gymnasium while a new facility is under construction at the  Redwood City campus.
 
--In the women’s conference title race, CCSF is a half game back of leader Skyline (17-9, 6-2), after upsetting the Trojans last week. Skyline is therefore, looking for some sisterly assistance from CSM -- in order to keep the Rams at bay. (Skyline has just two league games remaining, against the bottom two teams. The Trojans hosts Las Positas on Feb. 14 and visit Ohlone on Feb. 21.)
 
San Mateo downed Ohlone, 62-47, last week, getting 17 points and 15 rebounds from Emily Latu. Courtney Townsend had 14 points and eight rebounds. CSM will finish by visiting Las Positas on Feb. 19 and hosting contender Chabot on Feb. 21.
 
--The reinstituted CSM men’s program remains in contention for a first-ever post-season berth, with four games remaining in the state’s toughest conference. The Bulldogs closeout their first regular campaign since 1982-83 with games at Foothill (Feb. 14) and at Las Positas (Feb. 19) before a home finale with Chabot on Feb. 21. Caņada hosts CCSF on Feb. 14 and Skyline on Feb. 19 at College Heights before closing at Ohlone on Feb. 21.
 
State No. 1 CCSF (24-0, 10-0) has a 3-game lead in the Coast North with four games remaining and is averaging 100.7 points per game while blowing out all opponents by an average of 40 points.
