AVC did not look ahead last evening to the top ranked team in the tournament,  Diablo Valley #5 in NoCal, as they rolled over Sierra College 95-66. But, they now are preparing for the NoCal big dog tonight. 

It will be an interesting match up for a number of reasons;  The game will be played at Mt Eden High School in Hayward instead of at Chabot College.  The move was made when at half time last evening, the electricity when out in the main gym and several other buildings.  The staff found the damage to the electrical system could not be fixed in a timely fashion so AVC finished their second half in the practice gym.  The practice gym has little or no seating for fans so the rest of the tournament had to moved.

Interestingly, the size of the High School gym is 10 feet shorter in length than the college(NCAA approved floor.  How this will affect the games is hard to say.  This is not the first time this has happened as Victor Valley College used a High School facility a whole season when they renovated their gym.
