Matador Women's Hoops Racing for 1K Fans at Cal State Fullerton Game

NORTHRIDGE, Calif. ---

With just three games remaining in the regular season and two home games left, the Cal State Northridge women's basketball team is inviting all of its fans out to The Matadome for Thursday's game with Cal State Fullerton.

Thursday's contest is also a Red Rally Night for CSUN. Red Rally, the CSUN Student Fan group, will provide prizes and CSUN students wearing red will enjoy $1 hotdogs night. The first 100 CSUN Students will receive a free Red Rally t-shirt.

CSUN is looking to set a new attendance mark for CSUN head coach Jason Flowers and his 9-4 basketball team. Since arriving on campus in 2010, the largest attendance for a women's basketball game has been 827, a number that can surely be bested Thursday night. As the Matadors race to 1,000 fans, everyone in attendance will receive a Sports Chalet Mystery gift card valued between $5 and $100.

At 9-4 in the Big West Conference, CSUN is currently tied with Cal Poly for the league lead. However, the Matadors own the tiebreaker over the Mustangs after sweeping the regular season series. Northridge also currently owns the tiebreaker over Hawai'i (8-5) because of the wins over Cal Poly.

Following Thursday's contest, CSUN hosts UC Riverside Saturday in its final regular season home game of the year. Following the game, the Matadors will honor their two-member senior class: Mikayla Thielges and Haley White
