The San Diego City College women’s basketball team looks to rebound from a tough loss at Palomar on Wednesday. The Knights take on Grossmont College at Harry West Gym on Friday at 5 p.m.

It will be the second meeting between the two teams this year. The Griffins (4-15) won the previous contest, 47-41. The Knights (8-11) are in the midst of a down year after consecutive playoff appearances.

The Knights men’s basketball team will follow at 7 p.m., also against Grossmont, at home.

City College (13-10) will try to capitalize against the last-place Griffins (3-20). The Knights are only a game behind PCAC South Conference leader Southwestern College.

A win would keep pace for the Knights men in a tight playoff race.
