BURBANK - For the past four years, the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy basketball team has enjoyed a renaissance by qualifying for the postseason. Ty Buxman had a hand in that achievement by grooming multiple players at the junior varsity level as a coach and preparing them for the transition to the varsity stage. Buxman will now be in charge of the varsity team for the first time after he succeeded Gino Pacella, who resigned following last season. "We built a program over the last four years and we are going to try to keep making progress," said Buxman, whose team suffered a pair of pool-play losses Friday, including a 59-17 defeat against Country Day La Jolla, at the Summer Slam Tournament at Burroughs High.

The Vaqueros can't seem to escape the bad weather since their season was scheduled to begin Jan. 30 with a nonconference home match against Occidental College through a key Western State Conference contest against visiting Santa Barbara City College on Tuesday.

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 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.
