Pirates Open 2010-11 With Midnight Madness   


 MBB  10-2-2010  As the clock struck midnight, the Pirates men's basketball team emerged onto the newly renovated hardwood of the Athletic Event Center ushering in a new basketball season.  In the nightcap of an evening that featured scrimmages from Buena, Ventura, and Santa Clara high schools boys' basketball teams; and a slam dunk contest and 3-point contest with players from every squad represented, the new Pirates entertained well into the night.  Approximately 300 fans were in attendance at the event as official practice arrived for California Community College basketball teams.


     The Pirate men will tip off the season at home in the We Play Hard Tip-Off Tournament Nov., 9-11.  VC will take on Los Angeles Valley College at 5:00 pm at the Athletic Event Center.
