Abaca, who helped the Crusader girls' volleyball team win another Alpha League title and advance to the CIF Southern Section Division IVA semifinals in the fall, will attend the Christian-based school and walk on to its women's volleyball team.

A trip to the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship contest appeared to be anything but a slam dunk for the St. Francis High basketball team just a couple of weeks ago. After stumbling through the second half of Mission League, St. Francis earned the second seed in the division's playoff bracket before being taken to overtime by unseeded Yucca Valley in the first round. Since the opening-round scare, the Golden Knights appear to be the squad that excelled throughout December and the first part of January.

Instead, Anderson found himself with the ball 25 feet from the basket with three seconds on the clock, so there was nothing to do but heave up a shot that kept everyone's mouths open for what seemed like an eternity.
