TVCC women huddle

The TVCC women's basketball team huddles up after a practice in November of 2017.

ONTARIO — Treasure Valley Community College basketball teams will be opening their Northwest Athletic Conference East Region schedule on Jan. 2 with a Fan Appreciation Night at John J. Easly Gymnasium.

Admission will be free to all fans for both games. A press release from the college encourages fans to show up wearing orange and blue.

The Chukars will be hosting Yakima Valley Community College, with the women’s game starting at 5:30 p.m. and the men’s game starting at 7:30 p.m.

The women’s team will be in their first action since upsetting the NJCAA then No. 21-ranked College of Southern Idaho 68-61 on Dec. 18.

The games against the Yaks will be the first sporting events for the Chukars under new athletic director Andy Ward as Ed Aronson retired at the end of 2018.
