The City College woman’s basketball team is trying for their fourth tournament win of the season today at the Karen Franci Invitational in Fresno, Calif. The Rams will play against their tournament rivals the Foothill College Owls at 4 p.m.

The Rams beat the host team Fresno City College in the tournament’s opening round on Thursday 62-57, going on to beat Lassen College 71-63 Friday night to reach today’s championship round.

The Rams are ranked No. 2 in the state and are looking to start the season 14-0, one of the best starts in the team’s history at City College. Next week the Rams will be hosting the Golden Gate Classic at home in the Community Health and Wellness Center Dec. 12-14.

On the Men’s side, the Rams will play for the fifth place title tonight against Diablo Valley College at San Jose City College in San Jose, Calif.
