It's MLS Cup week in Southern California, with the Galaxy taking on the Houston Dynamo on Sunday evening in Carson. It's hardly the only big game in town.
There are another 19 matches, in the NCAA, NAIA and NCCAA tournaments, slated for the L.A. area on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Redlands received word Monday that it will be home for the third round and quarterfinals in the NCAA Division III tournament -- the Bulldogs meet Calvin, from Grand Rapids, Mich., on Friday, and the winner faces Randolph or Texas-Tyler in Saturday's showdown for a final-four berth.
UCLA's and Cal State L.A.'s women are staging four-school quartets Friday and Sunday, and UCLA's, UC Irvine's and UC Santa Barbara's men will be home for their NCAA openers Sunday.
There also are three NAIA teams (Azusa Pacific's men and women and Concordia's women) at home for first-round games Saturday, and regional play in the NCCAA tournament -- for Christian schools -- set for Friday and Saturday.
