LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — There’s still two weeks left in the regular season before the CIF Southern Section Division III-A playoffs begin for the Renaissance Academy boys’ basketball team, which will attempt to claim the program’s first CIF crown after appearing in the title game the previous three seasons.
For now, the Wildcats are ranked No. 1 in the latest CIF poll.
Renaissance Academy showed why Monday afternoon during a 64-47 nonleague home victory against Brentwood.
Four athletes scored 10-or-more points to help the Wildcats (21-2) win their 12th consecutive contest. Renaissance Academy last lost Dec. 19, when it suffered a 58-57 nonleague road loss to Etiwanda.
Coincidentally, Renaissance Academy starting guard Josh Thomas suffered a knee injury during that game. Renaissance Academy Coach Sid Cooke said Thomas should return to the lineup prior to the playoffs by seeing limited playing time in nonleague games against Community Charter on Feb. 7 and Mission Prep on Feb. 8.
