An all-out battle is set to be staged inside of Chase Gymnasium on Thursday evening as No. 25 Biola hosts the Westmont Warriors for the first round of the Golden State Athletic Conference tournament.
The Eagles and Westmont faced each other in the regular season opener and the regular season finale and split the season series.
Home court advantage seems to be key in the matchup as each school won the matchup that took place on their own home court. This gives Biola the advantage in this sudden-death playoff contest.
Both of the matchups from earlier this season were decided by fewer than 10 points as the teams traded field goals and put forth very physical efforts in true Westmont/Biola fashion.
Since the game is a conference tournament matchup all fans must pay for admission. Student admission is $5, General/Faculty/Staff tickets are $10 and Senior (62+) admission is $8.
A generous donation by AS guarantees the first 400 Biola students free admission at the ticket table.
Tipoff for the contest is at 7:30 p.m. and more game preview information will be available HERE later this week.
