California's varsity and JV girls' basketball teams will host Southern Boone Friday night, beginning with the JV game at 6 p.m.

The California 18th Annual Girls' Basketball Tournament will be held Jan. 9-14, where the top-seeded Lady Pintos will face Moberly, the #3 seed, in first-round action at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9.

"Traditionally, this is a great tournament," California Coach Bobby Sangster said. "With only six teams this year, we had to go to pool play, but we've got a strong field of teams. Eldon, the #2 seed, is 7-1 and Moberly finished second in this tourney last year. Numbers-wise, I think we're the smallest team in the tournarment. It will be good to see where we are right after Christmas break."
