Broncos get exhibition game with UCR

The Cal Poly Pomona women’s basketball team has scheduled an exhibition game against UC Riverside on Nov. 3. The game will tip off at 1 p.m. at UCR’s Student Recreation Center.

Broncos coach Scott Davis said his team hadn’t planned on anything because of the cost involved. He almost scheduled Pepperdine but even a trip there was going to cost $1,000 by the time he paid for the vans and meal money. With the state university budget a disaster he didn’t want to spend the money.

Then he got a call from UCR coach John Margaritis.

It’s a win-win for both teams. You have to figure UCR is in the same predicament. Why not play a team in such close proximity? With the budget crisis not letting up any time soon, more schools will be forced to do the same thing.
