LA CRESCENTA - No matter where a Hoover High boys' basketball player stood on the court, they rarely appeared comfortable being guarded by Crescenta Valley. Passes were deflected or stolen and shots were sometimes altered. It translated into frustration for Hoover and elation for Crescenta Valley on Monday. “I thought our defense did a good job, especially in the second half,” said Crescenta Valley guard Cole Currie, who finished with a game-high 23 points to help host Crescenta Valley roll to a 69-36 Pacific League victory against Hoover.

BURBANK - Approximately two minutes into the second half of his team's game against Heritage Christian at the Providence Varsity Summer Tournament on Saturday, St. Francis High boys' basketball Coach Jeff Stephens called a timeout. Though the Golden Knights held a comfortable 11-point advantage, the coach didn't like what he was seeing. "These guys have trouble concentrating," Stephens said. "You can see that they play their tails off. They play really hard, but they have trouble concentrating for an extended period of time.

Garrett Ohara is used to following in Alex Rivera's footsteps down the career path at Flintridge Prep. In 2000, Ohara succeeded Rivera as the school's boys' basketball coach before building a program that would go on to win 12 Prep League championships and one CIF Southern Section championships in the next 14 seasons. Now, Ohara will take over for Rivera as the school's athletic director, a position held by Rivera since 1986. Ohara, a 1984 Flintridge Prep graduate who has served the past couple of years as Rivera's assistant athletic director, will take over the reins in full on July 1. “It was an honor to take over for Alex in basketball and will be the same as the athletic director,” said Ohara, 48, who guided Flintridge Prep to a CIF Southern Section Division V-AA championship in 2011.

If ever the Flintridge Prep boys' basketball team was in danger of having its Prep League championship streak snapped, 2014 seemed the year. The Rebels missed multiple starters for large portions of the season, while the Prep League was perhaps as strong as it has been in years with four teams qualifying to the postseason. Yet, despite the hurdles, Flintridge Prep rose to the occasion and captured a seventh straight league title. The Rebels were recognized for their achievements as senior Robert Cartwright was named the league's most valuable player and two additional athletes were picked to the first and second teams.

To some degree, Ella Stepanian needed to reinvent herself after returning to the court following a serious knee injury sustained in 2012. The injury shelved the Crescenta Valley High girls' basketball player for the entire 2012-13 season, leaving her to ponder how she could come back and make an impact for the Falcons for her senior campaign. A position change from forward to guard turned out to be a boost for Stepanian, who came back with a vengeance to average 10.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, five steals and 7.4 assists per game en route to being named the Pacific League co-Player of the Year with Burbank's Yazzy Sa'Dullah.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA - Thoughts of an upset for the St. Francis High basketball team fizzled away in just a little over five minutes Saturday evening. The Golden Knights' one-time seven-point lead reversed into a seven-point deficit from which they did not recover, despite a valiant, in a season-ending 74-66 loss at Santa Margarita Catholic High in the CIF State Division III playoffs second round. With the victory, the third-seeded Eagles (25-8), the CIF Southern Section Division III-AA champions, advanced to the Southern California semifinals on Tuesday at Los Angeles Cathedral.

In its first state tournament appearance, the St. Francis High basketball team defeated a CIF section champion. Another balanced scoring attack might put the Golden Knights in position to accomplish the feat again. The task might be considerably taller for 11th-seeded St. Francis, which will travel to meet third-seeded Rancho Santa Margarita in a CIF State Division III second-round game at 7 p.m. Saturday. The Golden Knights, who finished runner-up in the CIF Southern Section Division III-A championship game against Oak Park, opened the state tournament Wednesday with a 67-62 road win against sixth-seeded San Diego Kearny.
