Tonight, there’s a doubleheader of basketball at Danny Miles Court as the Oregon Tech men’s and women’s teams host Simpson.

For the women, they’ll try to start the season 5-0 after two wins vs NCAA teams (Humboldt State and Holy Names) and one 74-63 on Saturday against a top 25 NAIA Div. I team, Masters College. Oregon Tech is a Div. II team.

For her effort, senior Kassi Conditt was chose Cascade Collegiate Conference Player of the Week. She pulled down 22 rebounds against Masters, the second-most in school history and the first 20 point, 20 rebound performance ever by an OIT women’s hoops player.

The men are trying to recover after being swept by William Jessup and Cal-Maritime this weekend. Injuries have definitely been an issue for Danny Miles’ team. Kyle Waits, Derek Evans and Josh Johnson all missed time. Oregon Tech is 1-2 overall.

The doubleheader starts at 5:30 p.m. and the games can be heard on The Sports Legend, ESPN 960 and 92-5 KLAD.
