PASADENA — There's plenty of playing time up for grabs in any summer league basketball game, but even more so for the Flintridge Prep boys' team, which was without its starting point guard Tuesday.
While fresh faces like Kyle Hamane and Harrison Jung filled in nicely for Robert Cartwright, who is out with concussion-like symptoms suffered in a tournament game Sunday, the Rebels also got what they expected from returning big men Kareem Ismail and Chad Cosse in a 67-47 win over Marshall Fundamental at Maranatha High.
“We have nine returners this year so I think we're more ahead of the game than most summers,” Prep Coach Garrett Ohara said. “Summers are usually time for us to bring up new guys and get them in the system, but there's only three of them that are new this year. It's a big benefit for them to play alongside returners.”
