GLENDALE — As Flintridge Prep girls’ basketball Coach Todd Frost sees it, the playoffs are a fresh start, a new season and, more than anything, they’re all about being hot at the right time.
“Right now, everybody’s 0-0,” he said. “Now, if we come out and play one bad game, our season’s over.”
The sixth-seeded Rebels drew a predicted first-round home game when playoff pairings were released on Sunday by the CIF offices, as they’ll host St. Matthias, the No. 3 team out of the Santa Cruz League, on Thursday at 7 p.m.
Crescenta Valley was also a No. 6 seed with a home game, drawing familiar foe Valencia.
Holy Family will stay close to home when it travels to face Providence, the Liberty League champion, Glendale Adventist Academy will face Aquinas and Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy notched an at-large bid to take on Notre Dame Academy.
