KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – The final home games of the year find Oregon Tech welcoming in The Evergreen State College Friday and Northwest University Saturday at Danny Miles Court.

The No.2 OIT men beat Evergreen State last time 91-62 after battling Northwest to a 94-93 overtime win. Northwest comes into Saturday’s game on a seven-game winnings streak, ranked No. 8.

The Oregon Tech men have already clinched no worse than a third spot in the Cascade Conference tournament, but can strengthen its chances for a regular season championship with a sweep this weekend.

The Lady Owls games weigh even more heavily on its opportunity to host a home game during the CCC tournament, as only the top four teams get that chance.

Oregon Tech went to double OT beating Evergreen winning last month 68-66 and took down Northwest 80-69.

OIT (9-5) is one game out of fourth place in the Cascade Conference, behind College of Idaho and Eastern Oregon which play one another this weekend.
