Five teams from the Foothill Conference have advanced on the men’s side led by San Bernardino Valley College, the No. 3 seed in the South. The Wolverines will host a game on Saturday but don’t know their opponent. They will face the winner of Wednesday’s game between Cuesta and West Los Angeles.

Chaffey is the No. 8 seed and will host No. 9 Bakersfield Friday at 7 p.m.

No. 16 Victor Valley, which hasn’t been to the playoffs in who know when, will host No. 18 Long Beach City on Wednesday. The seeding make it look like a close game but Victor has played a tough schedule and Long Beach has not. This is a chance for the Rams to acutally win a playoff game.
