Everett CC vs. Edmonds CC basketball tales of the tape

Both the men’s and women’s games between the Trojans and Tritons have major postseason implications.

The Everett Community College and Edmonds Community College basketball teams face one another Saturday at the Walt Price Student Fitness Center on the campus of Everett CC. With just four games remaining in the regular season, both the men’s and women’s contests are crucial in determining the postseason fates of all four teams involved.

In the men’s game, Everett is in contention for a third straight Northwest Athletic Conference North Region championship, while Edmonds is trying to secure its position as an NWAC tournament team. In the women’s game, both Edmonds and Everett are fighting to earn one of the region’s four NWAC tournament berths.

The action begins at 2:45 p.m. with the women’s game, the men tip off at 6 p.m., and in between is the second annual Burn Relief Charity Basketball Game between the Everett Fire Department and South Snohomish County Fire & Rescue.

Here are tales of the tape for both the men’s and women’s games (league records include current place in the North Region, point-total rankings are in all of NWAC):
