The College of the Sequoias women's basketball team earned the top seed in the NorCal playoffs on Monday after a phenomenal regular-season campaign that saw the Giants going unbeaten to win the school's first outright Central Valley Conference title in 20 years.
COS (27-3) will start the postseason Saturday against the first-round winner between No. 16 Monterey Peninsula (17-10) and No. 17 West Hills-Lemoore (19-9). They play at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Monterey.
Fresno City (21-9) earned the No. 8 seed and a first-round game at home. The Rams will host No. 9 Foothill (20-6) at 7 p.m. Friday.
Should the Rams and Giants win their second-round games, the CVC rivals will clash for a third time this year on March 4 in the NorCal quarterfinals.
No. 3-seed and Big 8 Conference champ Diablo Valley College (24-5) will host No. 14 Reedley at 7 p.m. Thursday.
