The Matador men’s basketball team returns to California State University, Northridge for their Big West home opener against Cal Poly on Jan. 17. The game is a rematch of last year’s Big West Conference Tournament title game, when the Matadors were just seconds away from advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in school history.

The Matadors’ all-time leading scorer Stephan Hicks leads the team with 17.4 points per game. Fellow senior Stephen Maxwell has powered his way to 15.9 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. For information on tickets, please visit
