WEST COAST CONFERENCE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT
March madness begins in Vegas this year. Male and female teams from Gonzaga, St. Mary’s, University of San Diego, Santa Clara, Pepperdine, University of San Francisco, University of Portland and Loyola Marymount compete to advance to the dance today through Monday at the Orleans Arena, 4500 W. Tropicana Ave. Women shoot at noon each day, and the men play at 6 p.m. For ticket information, call 284-7777.
It’s a heartache to drive all the way to Primm and leave behind your tickets to Juice Newton, performing at 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in the Star of the Desert Arena at Buffalo Bill’s. Tickets are $21.95; call (800) 386-7867.
It’s been a hitless new millennium for this ’90s country superstar so far. But don’t tell that to the thousands of couples who still tie the knot to Raye’s “In This Life.” The honky-tonking starts at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday in the Showroom at the South Point, 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $45-$55; call 797-8055.
Peter Cetera left in 1985, taking away the biggest part of them. But if you still find Chicago a hard habit to break, see the band at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Star of the Desert Arena at Buffalo Bill’s, Interstate 15 South at Primm. Tickets are $43.95-$71.45; call (800) 386-7867.
In 1969, the members of this Rhode Island bubble gum family/band were approached to portray themselves in a TV sitcom. When the kids were told that actress Shirley Jones would replace their mom, they balked, and the Partridge Family was born. (Attention whichever one Danny Bonaduce modeled himself after: Don’t worry, you’re not responsible.) See The Cowsills at 7:30 p.m. today through Sunday in the Showroom at the Suncoast, 9090 Alta Drive. Tickets are $22-$44; call 636-7075.
