Before the Cal State Stanislaus women’s basketball team continues California Collegiate Athletic Association play, the Warriors will throw themselves into a two-day challenge known as the CCAA/PacWest Challenge at San Francisco State.

Their first tournament is against Notre Dame de Namur on Friday at 5:30 p.m., followed by a showdown with 8-1 Grand Canyon on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. After that, the Warriors won’t play again until Dec. 30, when the CCAA restarts.

Stanislaus is 3-3 overall and coming off a 2-0 weekend in the CCAA, with tight wins over Sonoma State and Humboldt State. In those games, Andreanna Marshall completed two career nights, combining for 47 points. Teammate Katie Busi had a well-rounded effort during that stretch to finish with 39 points, 18 rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks, while freshman standout Lauren Godde had a career-high 15 rebounds on Dec. 4 against Humboldt State.

On Friday, the Warriors will go up against a 1-4 Notre Dame de Namur team before taking on Grand Canyon, ranked at No. 21 in the USA Today/ESPN Division II Top 25 coaches poll. For the latter team, Samantha Murphy leads Grand Canyon by averaging 26.6 points.

For the men’s team, the Warriors have had an up-and-down season so far. After losing to Sonoma State by 14 points, Stanislaus had a big 73-58 win over Humboldt State on Dec. 4 to even out its weekend action at 1-1 in the CCAA.

The Warriors look to win their third game in three tries at Chico State today at 7 p.m. Then on Saturday, they’ll face Division I competition in the University of Pacific at 7 p.m., before hosting Cal Baptist on Dec. 18.

Stanislaus is 2-3 overall and 1-2 in the CCAA.
