WALLA WALLA -- The Whitman College basketball teams play their Northwest Conference home openers this weekend on George Ball Court in Sherwood Center.
George Fox University comes to town on Friday with Pacific University set to provide Saturday's opposition. The women's games start both nights at 6 p.m. The men's games will follow at 8 p.m.
Admission to Whitman athletic events is always free for Whitman community (students, staff, faculty), but because most students are still away from campus on semester break, this weekend's games are also free to the local community.
