Northridge Will Now End 2011-12 Season at Saint Mary’s

NORTHRIDGE, Calif. – Cal State Northridge men's basketball has added a late-season game against Saint Mary's, and will now end its 2011-12 schedule on the road against the Gaels.

The Matadors-Gaels 7 p.m. matchup will take place on Friday, March 9, at McKeon Pavilion, and will mark the final appearance in a CSUN uniform for seniors Ari Feldman, John Hayward-Mayhew, Michael Lizarraga, and Vinnie McGhee.

Ranked No. 23 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll with an 18-2 overall record, the Gaels currently sit atop the West Coast Conference standings with their 7-0 record.

Saint Mary's is the third WCC school the Matadors will face this season; defeated by 13 points at Santa Clara last December, CSUN rebounded with a three-point victory at Pepperdine the following week.

This is CSUN's first trip to Moraga, Calif. since Dec. 22, 1995.
