Pomona-Pitzer men's basketball team to play Claremont-Mudd-Scripps in battle for 6th Street supremacy.

The first-place Pomona-Pitzer men's basketball team will take on the second-place Claremont-Mudd-Scripps team at home at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 16 in Voelkel Gymnasium.

The defending conference champion Sagehens (14-7 overall, 9-1 in conference play) are going for their ninth straight victory, while the Stags (11-10 overall, 7-3 in conference play) had won five in a row following a loss to the Sagehens on January 22.

Pomona-Pitzer men's basketball has established itself as one of the nation's premiere NCAA Division III programs. Since 1986 the Sagehens have made nine trips to the NCAA National Tournament and captured nine Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Championships. Pomona, Pitzer, Claremont McKenna, Scripps and Harvey Mudd colleges are all part of the Claremont Colleges, a unique consortium of five undergraduate and two graduate institutions.
