Cal Poly Pomona to honor women’s basketball team

Cal Poly Pomona will hold a rally to honor the women’s basketball team which advanced to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight.

Festivities are scheduled for noon on Thursday in Center Court of the Bronco Student Center. It is open to the public free of charge. It will be similar to the one held last year to honor the men’s team after it brought home a national championship.

Coach Danelle Bishop and the players will be introduced with a chosen few addressing the crowd.

The Broncos advanced to the national tournament last month for the first time since 2002. They were second in the CCAA in the regular season but won the conference tournament and the NCAA Division II West Regional.
