The College of San Mateo men’s basketball and Skyline women’s teams are each headed to the postseason. For the CSM Bulldogs, who were reinstated this season for the first time since the 1980s, it is the first time ever they have qualified for the CCCAA Northern California regional playoffs.

CSM, which last fielded a team in 1983, returned to competition this season and clinched the program’s first-ever playoff spot after beating Chabot-Hayward 90-73 last Friday night. The Bulldogs finished in a tie for third in the Coast Conference North — along with Chabot and Foothill, teams the Bulldogs swept this season. Yet the Bulldogs were the fifth team from the conference to receive a playoff berth. The five playoff spots from the Coast North were the most of any conference in Northern California.

CSM (14-14), which received the No. 19 seed, opens play on the road at No. 14 Alameda (17-11) at 7 p.m. Wednesday night.

The game will be streamed on NorCal Sports TV.
