GLENDALE - Less than 24 hours removed from the greatest victory in the history of its program, the Flintridge Prep boys’ basketball team was assured its finest season wouldn’t be coming to a close.
On Sunday, the Rebels were bestowed the No. 2 seed in the Southern California bracket of the 2011 CIF State Boys’ Division V Basketball Championships. Prep (23-6) will play host on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. to Tranquility (6-21) of the Central Section.
“The Southern Section versus the Central Section has traditionally been rather lopsided for the Southern Section and we hope to continue that tradition,” said Rebels Coach Garrett Ohara, whose team defeated Muir, 47-44, on Saturday night to claim the Southern Section Division V-AA title, its first in program history. “Being a high seed as we are, it’s nice to get an easier team and that we get to play at home. Those are big factors.”
