2010-11 Cascade Collegiate Conference Basketball Schedule Released
New Doubleheader Format to Feature Alternating Time Slots for Men, Women in Conference Play
PORTLAND, Ore. – A new doubleheader format featuring men’s and women’s teams alternating time slots in conference play headlines the release of the 2010-11 Cascade Collegiate Conference men’s and women’s basketball schedules, CCC commissioner Dave Haglund announced.
The CCC’s 19th season of conference play gets underway Friday, Dec. 3 with five games in each gender. Oregon Tech will open up CCC play at Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon. Each CCC team will play an 18-game conference schedule, facing the other nine conference teams twice during the season. The first half concludes Jan. 15; the second half runs from Jan. 21 to Feb. 19.
The Oregon Tech men will open up the 2010-2011 pre-season at home on November 5th against Multnomah University with the Oregon Tech women opening up the pre-season on the road also on November 5th at Menlo College in Atherton, California.
The CCC recently voted to modify the structure of its conference doubleheaders, which historically have featured the women playing at 5:30 p.m. followed by the men at 7:30 p.m. Beginning with the upcoming campaign, genders will split the two time slots. In the first half of conference play in 2010-11, men will play at 5:30 p.m. and women at 7:30 p.m.; in the second half, the genders will flip time slots. Men’s and women’s teams will alternate their playing orders on a yearly basis.
“The conference intently studied the impact of scheduling the basketball games and ultimately decided in favor of alternating the time slots,” said Haglund. “Overall, the feeling is this will be a positive change for the CCC, its student-athletes and the fans who support our teams.”
The postseason conference tournaments will continue to include the top eight teams in each gender in single-elimination events held at campus sites. The women’s tournament is scheduled for Feb. 22, Feb. 25 and Feb. 28. The men’s tournament is slated for Feb. 23, Feb. 26 and March 1.
Oregon Tech is the men’s defending regular season and tournament champion; College of Idaho is the women’s defending CCC regular season and tournament champion.
