NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? A second-quarter slump turned into a third-quarter swoon for the Glendale High boys? basketball team in a Burbank Tournament contest against Mark Keppel on Tuesday evening. Playing without starting guard Eddie Nersisyan, the Nitros fell behind by double-digits shortly before halftime and saw the deficit balloon to 25 inside the first four minutes of the second half en route to a lackluster 56-32 loss that dropped the team to 0-2 on the season. ?We turned the ball over too much and we couldn?

"I would say their reputation, first," Golden Knights Coach Mark Frazee said when asked what spooked his team.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — While the weather outside the Flintridge Prep gymnasium was cool and dry on Wednesday night, the atmosphere inside was on a whole different level. The Rebels turned up the heat with their pressure defense and rained down 11 three-pointers to drill visiting Azusa, 61-50, in the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division IV-A playoffs. The victory by fourth-seeded Prep sets up a showdown with top-seed Laguna Hills, a 65-44 winner over Calvary Murrieta, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at a site to be determined.

PASADENA - Through two games, the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team has already enjoyed the value of taking part in the Maranatha varsity basketball summer league. Two days after taking down a Marshall Fundamental team that relied heavily on guard Evan Bynum, the Rebels faced a stronger contender in well-balanced Mark Keppel, a squad known throughout the San Gabriel Valley for its up-tempo play and adroit three-point shooting. While the challenge was certainly different, the result was near the same as Flintridge Prep used its brutish inside presence to wear down the Aztecs in a 49-42 victory Thursday afternoon.

Sang Lee GLENDALE HIGH- Friday afternoon's girls' tennis match between Glendale and Mark Keppel High could have gone either way. Unfortunately for the Nitros, all their close-game losses added up to a 13-5 loss. Nitro Coach Bob Davidson said of the Aztecs, "The difference was that they won a lot of close sets. They had five returners back. The experience makes a lot of difference in close sets." Glendale (2-2) comes into the season with only two returning varsity players.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — On its final play in regulation Thursday against visiting Mark Keppel, the Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team saw one opportunity after another to score a tiebreaking basket slip away. Four minutes after the buzzer sounded to end the fourth quarter, the game had slipped away from the Wildcats, as well, in a 52-48 nonleague loss following an overtime period they would have preferred to avoid altogether. With the shot clock off, the Wildcats were ensured the last shot of regulation, should they have the patience and wherewithal to set it up. Instead Renaissance filled the final 24 seconds with two missed shots and two turnovers, the second of which forced an overtime in which Jessy Cantinol's four points weren't enough to keep the Wildcats from falling to 5-5. "They hit big shots, they're better than us, there's nothing I can say," Wildcats Coach Sid Cooke said.

LA CAÑADA - For the second consecutive game in the La Cañada Holiday Classic, the Glendale High boys' basketball team succumbed to an opponent's stellar long-range shooting. After giving up 10 three-pointers to host La Cañada on Tuesday, the Nitros couldn't find any solutions to prevent Mark Keppel from hitting nine from behind the arc and coming out victorious in a high-scoring 74-60 affair on Wednesday afternoon in a pool-play contest. Glendale (3-3) had its hands full on defense, as they couldn't close out on the Aztecs shooters mainly due to their center, Bertram Mak, having his way inside and providing a balanced offense.

Peter Samore ALHAMBRA -- Mark Keppel High controlled the football and, thus, controlled the nonleague contest against visiting Hoover High. From the sideline, the Tornadoes watched the Aztecs set the tone early. Hoover didn't see the ball on offense until the first 11:45 ran off the clock. The Hoover defense tired, but the offense stayed close. Nonetheless, the Tornadoes didn't convert on all three of their two-point attempts after touchdowns.

Much of the roster for the Glendale High boys' tennis team has changed from 2010 to 2012, but for longtime Nitros Coach Bob Davidson, it might very well have felt as if nothing much has changed. Glendale took a very long trip south to play top-seeded Palm Desert in the CIF Southern Section Division II first round, arriving a bit late in the process due to AP testing. And, once again, the Nitros took the very long trip back north after a lopsided loss, as Palm Desert showed no mercy in thumping Glendale, 18-0, on Wednesday.

ALHAMBRA - The Renaissance Academy boys' basketball team devised a game plan to exploit its opponent's size disadvantage and executed it on the way to a convincing nonleague victory Tuesday night. Led by senior forward Jessy Cantinol's 20 points, the Wildcats received easy baskets inside, as well as good looks outside, while the defense hounded the Mark Keppel Aztecs to a poor shooting night. The result was a 68-42 triumph that marks the eighth straight win for the Wildcats, who have also won 10 of their last 11 under Coach Sid Cooke, who said the team is starting to come together.

ANAHEIM — Off the bench and into the annals of Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy history. Tologs senior forward Alyssa Conti did not begin overtime of Tuesday afternoon's CIF Southern Section Division I semifinal on the field, but she ended it there. Propelled by the fortuitous right foot of Conti in the 83rd minute of an overtime nailbiter at Esperanza High, third-seeded Sacred Heart defeated No. 2 Esperanza, 1-0, to advance to the program's first-ever CIF Southern Section championship final.
