BERKELEY, Calif. - The Cal athletic department will host a memorial service for Alisa Lewis on Thursday, Jan. 22 at noon in the gym at Haas Pavilion.

The memorial service is open to the general public. Everyone who would like to honor Lewis' memory is encouraged to attend.

The Cal women's basketball team has decided to play USC on Friday, Jan. 23 in Los Angeles as scheduled. Game time is 7 p.m. at the Los Angeles Sports Arena. The Golden Bears will then visit UCLA on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Pauley Pavilion.

"We went over the pros and cons of playing on Friday with our players and let them make the decision," said Cal women's basketball head coach Caren Horstmeyer. "They decided as a team that they wanted to play. They have the full support of their coaches."

Lewis, who passed away on Monday from bacterial meningitis, was a junior on the Cal women's basketball team.
