Back in the state rankings, the Santa Rosa JC women's basketball team hosts some of California's top squads in the Bear Cubs' annual tournament that tips off today.
Among the eight teams entered in the Caren Franci Invitational are state No. 1 City College of San Francisco and No. 10 San Joaquin Delta, with Santa Rosa rounding out the top 20.
The tournament runs at Haehl Pavilion through the weekend with the championship game set for 6 p.m. Sunday.
The invitational honors the SRJC Hall of Fame coach, who led the women's basketball program for 32 years.
With the invitational, Santa Rosa continues a run of five tournaments as the young Bear Cubs take on a busy schedule before beginning play in the always tough Big 8 Conference.
