In the down year that has been for both the Ohlone Renegades and Chabot Gladiators basketball teams, the good news is that both are primed for postseason play, despite neither winning the Coast Conference North, an honor that went to the City College of San Francisco with their 12-0 CCN record, along with a 25-1 regular season record.

The Renegades finished their season on a high note, defeating the desperate Foothill Owls 73-70 Friday night, Feb. 18. The win for Ohlone comes just in time as the Renegades were in danger of ending the regular season on a three-game losing streak after losing their final two home games of the season prior to Friday night's three point win.

Ohlone finishes the season fourth in the Coast Conference North with a 16-11 overall record, their worst record in the John Peterson era, and a 7-5 conference record, just their second worst since going 6-4 in the 2005-06 season.

Chabot, on the other hand, finished the season on the losing note, falling to Canada College 76-58 in Hayward Friday night. The Gladiators end the season losing two of their final three games, however finish ahead of the Renegades in the CCN standings with an 8-4 conference record on top of their 19-8 overall record.

With the CCCAA playoffs beginning on Wednesday, the Ohlone and Chabot rivalry could possibly have a new chapter should the two teams meet somewhere in the regional tourney. Pairings for the tourney were set on Monday, not available at press.
